    OK, that makes sense. I was just confused because most of the literature I've read defined rapeseed oil as inedible.

      Isn't unintentionally removing oneself from the breeding pool one qualification for for a Darwin Award?

        • I got told that it is unhealthy that I don't eat during my 8 hour shift at work. I guess it would have been better that I had McDonalds like everyone else.

            • I was at a Folk Festival yesterday and ordered some barbecue without a bun. Two of the ladies at the stand decided that I was some kind of crAzy person, because they stopped what they were doing to mock me. No, not wanting a shitty white bread burger bun doesn't make me crazy or deserving of mockery.

              People really get offended if you don't want bread. I just don't get it. I was more than fine with just the meat, onions and sauerkraut.

                I went to my favorite barbecue joint two days ago, and asked the girl at the register if they could just give me the meat from a sandwich without the bun. She didn't bat an eye, and I think they gave me extra brisket instead. Win!

                  Wow, dead hippie skin tastes weirdly good. I'm freaked out now. o_o

                    At a farmers market last summer I asked the same thing. The kid who took my money gave me a weird look, but the cook told me he gave me extra meat to make up for the 'lack' of bread.

                      Walking out of class, my friends were saying "Wow, I didn't know that adding hydrogen to oils made them less fattening!" my other friend said, "no, it doesn't, it makes it more saturated, which is unhealthy"

                      Chemistry is one of my worst subjects, and even I know this is bad science! I knew I was going to fail anyway, so I answered the question of "What is better to use: vegetable oil or butter?" (seriously, wtf is their problem with butter?) with "Butter. It's a safer fat to cook with and does not require loads of unnatural processing. Also, vegetable oils have been linked with heart disease, whereas saturated fats have not."

                      Failing science in the name of science
                      That isn't chemistry - chemistry is real science.
                      They have attempted to use a nutritional application in the oils chemistry section - for whatever reason. They know the structure of the oils (that's chemistry, not nutrition).

                      • Yesterday, I was perusing a label, and the ingredients included this:
                        "sugar, sunflower oil (canola oil, soy lecithin, natural flavor), salt..."

                        Seriously? your "sunflower oil" is FAKE sunflower oil? It's really SUNFLOWER FLAVORED CANOLA OIL. With soy added.

                          Now that's good. I usually use the bun as a kind of disposable face-wipe.

                            Uhh... thats one of the more gross and pathetic things I've seen in here. Now I want to find it so I can ridicule it, loudly, to anyone that can hear. (I'm not one graced with an overabundance of tact, often to Karockette's chagrin.)

                              • I'm completing my annual health assessment for work - thought I'd share some of the gems:

                                What kind of protein foods do you eat most often?

                                (a) hamburger, hot dogs, bologna, steaks, sour cream, cheese, whole milk, eggs, fried chicken, tacos and many fast foods
                                (b) low-fat protein foods: lean meats, skinless poultry, fish, skim milk, low-fat dairy products, and legumes (peas and beans)
                                (c)plant proteins: legumes (peas, beans, lentils and garbanzos), tofu, soy meat alternates, nut foods, seeds, veggie burger, and vegetarian entrees
                                ummm.... well...?

                                Fats
                                What kind do you usually use?

                                (a) butter, stick margarine, shortening, meat drippings
                                (b) transfat-free margarine, veg. oils, or no added fats
                                (c) use both about the same
                                I finished the quiz - got docked points for not eating enough "Whole Grains" ... darn!
