Contraceptives can also be used as contraceptives. Its like toothpaste. I could put it on a zit, but id rather use it for toothpaste and use the acne cream for acne.

Is there actually a mathematical equivalent of what a rasher of bacon is?  I wouldn't even know WTF a rasher is except it was a popular crossword clue at one time.

The best reversible contraceptive for men, btw, is a weekly injection of testosterone cyp.

I always thought "rasher" was another name for "strip" or "piece", i.e. a single unit. I don't think there is a conversion like "four pieces to a rasher" but that could easily be wrong.

Well, you are right (sort of)  I finally looked it up (before I was GISing it and got nuttin')  here is the definition:
http://www.ochef.com/images/A.gif" width="20" height="21"> A rasher is a single slice of bacon or raw pork, generally intended for frying or broiling. Our dictionary has lowered its standards, and so also lets in the definition that it can be a serving of several such slices.

Apparently it can range from one (which I believe is the original definition) to several slices (who wouldn't?) so it appears to be completely open to interpretation of the individual(s) involved.

/Rasher = ?

I eat two strips (rashers?) of bacon every morning at breakfast, and a tin of sardines every day for lunch.

Net effect ... zero?

If processes meat in general is the problem, it is more likely the artificial preservatives, colors, flavors and sweeteners that are packed into processed meats more than any other food, which are the true culprits. Eating processed meats in moderation is fine as long as you can find products that are unadulterated.

I've eaten 1/2 lb of bacon every morning for 5 years. And no girl wants to have sex with me. It's not that the bacon made me fat, I'm just really ugly.

Probably, but we're concerned about your lack of bacon consumption committment.
 
2013-10-15 09:32:52 AM
This effect is just a defense mechanism by the body. The result is that there will be a less likely chance for future competition over tasty bacon by greedy offspring!

Let's not blame that on the bacon.  If anything, I'd point to the Internet meme culture and the morans who embrace it.

A rasher is a single unit, but if we're referring to the UK or one of its former colonies other than the US of A, then we're talking about a different cut of bacon altogether.  American bacon is the cheapest, fattiest cut - side bacon.  What the UK types eat is back bacon, known in the US as Canadian bacon.  It has less fat and comes in a different shape and portion amount altogether.

No kidding - it's honestly kind of retarded.  I mean no one in real life talks like that about bacon.  Seriously.  Just try starting up a conversation about bacon and see if you can stretch it for more than a minute without sounding retarded.

Kill it
Clean it
Age it
Butcher it
Grill it

Usually refers to meat with a lot of chemical preservatives, such as nitrates and sodium erythorbate. I think bacon and hot dogs have gotten a bad rap with this stuff, because although they commonly contain them, you can get hippie bacon and hot dogs, still made of pork and everything, cured without. So really they should be testing this stuff with a control group of people who only eat naturally processed processed meat. I'll volunteer if they'll ship me cases of natural bacon and hot dogs. For science.

Bacon, beer, duct tape and broadband: everything a real Farker needs.

Farking from your phone is like eating "turkey bacon" or drinking non-alcoholic "beer." (Of course there's no substitute for duct tape.)
