cman: Cagey B: cman: Cagey B: cman: I see it as a BS argument, but to be fair, you would be surprised how much something like this could costTry me. Whatever it is I'm sure will bankrupt utterly a business with at least twenty operating restaurants.Try you? I already said it was a BS argumentThe statement that we'd be "surprised how much something like this could cost" implies that doing this is a) relatively expensive and b) some sort of noticeable burden to the parties that would have to comply. If that's genuinely not what you were driving at, then whatever.Thats why I added "to be fair"
Nabb1: but dear lord, someone said something negative about a provision of the ACA, so let's all crap our pants...
boyvoyeur: m1ke: The whole point of this country is if you want to eat garbage, balloon up to 600 pounds, and die of a heart attack at 43, you can. You are free to do so. To me, that's beautiful.This. I'm ordering a pizza. Any time you do that, you're not eating a healthy meal. I don't need it pointed out to me six times a week.
Rhypskallion: Random Anonymous Blackmail: Why don't they just release a chart we can all understand.A 3-D model is better. Here's one for you--make a fist. That's the natural size of your stomach. Eat that volume of food--no more the rest is wasted. Your appetite is the result of cultural mis-training to eat more than you need, and you will get used to it in a few weeks. Carry on.

ShadowKamui: Ritley: What an asinine argument. The cost of a board showing nutrition info is not burdensome in any mannerYou do realize it costs $$$ to do the nutrition tests
ValisIV: sufferpuppet: Ritley: What an asinine argument. The cost of a board showing nutrition info is not burdensome in any mannerHow bout the cost of producing that data? Having somebody determine the calorie counts for an entire menu. Think that's free?They know how many ounces of X are in each dish, and the calorie info on that is readily available. It's like you know you put 1lb of ground beef, 2 eggs, etc into your burger patties, and made 4 patties, you can do some quick maths, and find out. Chain restaurants measure everything. Also, calorie testing is really cheap.
