It's a thing, but rum really hurts my stomach to drink.  I can only take it in small doses.

Why do so many of these poor bastards die in the bathroom?
I swear to God, I think Jamie Lee Curtis and everyone in the fiber bar movement may be right.
You have to have easy poops. Sounds like a horrible topic, but I bet those poor guys were straining so much, their heart exploded.
What the hell else could it be? Bathrooms are relaxing...nice shower, it produces soothing steam...great big tub to soak in...
In his hotel room, I'm sure there was a decent sized TV in there...a little wine, a little herb...
What's to be stressed out about in a bathroom???
Unless...you're straining like hell to pass what you have to pass...
And it farkin blows your heart up!

Having had foie gras, let me tell you that shiat is way greasier than the fried prawns.  Mind you, it's expensive, delicious grease that you can only get from the most f%$#ed up cruel of food sources.  Like veal, but even tastier.  That said, if you want that flavor without the cruelty you can just cook things in duck fat.  Same concept.

Anyway, that's a decent last meal but not epic.  The foie gras knocks it up there.  Pity the dude was trashed for his last interaction with his son.

Oh, and it wasn't two separate shots of rum, it was two extra shots worth (jiggers) of rum in each of his Pina Coladas.  But that's the NY Post for ya.

Agreed.  It's good but it's not worth the steps necessary to create it.  As I said, you can get almost the exact same flavor by frying meat in duck fat.  Also, yes you can buy duck fat; fancy restaurants keep big tubs of all crazy kinds of fat on hand.

How heroic of him.  Truly a death to be celebrated.

Can we get out the pitchforks for that Jackass guy again?

And get a stool (heh heh) for the bathroom to keep by the toilet to help in passing your poops. Huge difference.

In Cuba, I was drinking Havana Club straight or on the rocks sometimes. I didn't do shots with it but still, it goes down smooth and is not really that sweet.

I was thinking this the other day. I've never in my life come across a premium rum. The highest shelf they sell at my local liquor stores is Captain. Could you buy a $50 or $80 bottle of rum if you wanted to? Would a discerning taster be able to tell that it was worth the extra money? Personally, rum is the one liquor I can't even tell well apart from $20 liters.

You can tell the difference not in top shelf stuff but in rum not typically sold in the US.

Friend of mine busted open a bottle of stuff he bought in Cuba, was much smoother and had more carmel sweet flavor. Very good just on the rocks.

Oh my god, premium rum is amazing. Try Ron Zacapa XO sometime if you ever run across it. It's $100 a bottle and tastes almost like chocolate. Not sure where you live, but higher end wine and liquor stores all over Northern California sell it. There's a tiki bar in San Francisco that has 200-400 different rums of enormously high quality, the kind of rums that can be slowly sipped, something I never thought possible before.

Was in Guyana for work. Got some El Dorado 15. Amazing stuff. Had some 21 when I was there. The Manager of the Pegasus in Georgetown let me have a small amount of the 25.

when i got back from two yrs in afghanistan, i started having an activia a day. i couldn't believe how much better i felt...how much easier it was to 'evacuate'. i can't remember the last time i actually needed tp or a shower after.

my wife used to work in an er and did some forensic pathology classes. she said more people die on the crapper then you think. all about the straining. they actually tell people with an elevated heart rate to bear down like they want to poop so slow the heart rate some. her cousins son has some irregular heart thing going on for a while and they told him to try and poop...but don't actually poop. with some people i guess it just lowers there heart rate too much and bam...done.

why do you say foie gras is cruel?  I've heard that the geese run up to be fed.  If that's  true, I don't think the geese are suffering.

Wow. So many health fanatics here on Fark. I really find it hard to believe that NONE of you over indulge on food or drink. Give me a farking break. I'd rather enjoy my life while I'm still here on this miserable rock than spend my whole life eating rabbit food and obsessively exercising my life away. All the hate for fat people, and odds are most of you (60%, according to recent statistics) are fat yourselves. Such hypocrisy.

It's what's required to make it.

Let's say you're an average-sized guy. Try this visualization: imagine yourself locked up in a cage that's barely 3 feet wide, 2 feet deep, and maybe 3 and a half feet high. You're squatting because there's nowhere near enough room to stand up, You can't stretch your arms or legs. How long until you started cramping up? 20 minutes? An hour? Now, visualize yourself locked in that cage for the next several months while you're force-fed high-calorie carbs with no possible way of burning them through basic body movement. That's pretty much the life of a duck destined for foi gras or a calf destined to become veal: force fed and living in a cage that prohibits movement or even standing.

I'm an unabashed carnivore and there's a certain line between 'raising my food' and 'torturing an animal' that these processes cross.

I see.  I draw the line on veal.

Foie Gras.. I don't know.  I heard the goose (it's goose, right?) actually run up to the feeder to get force fed, so I can't imagine that they are suffering if they actually run up to get that done to them.  If that's true that is.
