    I haven't eaten bacon in years. I'm so ashamed.

    Chocolate covered bacon..... Man where have you been
    Marini's Chocolate Covered Bacon
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    Yes, but the fed'l min wage in 1962 was $1.15, so the min wage worker had to work 41 min to buy that pound.

    At $7.25 min wage, s/he now has to work 39 min.

    I didn't do the taxes on those wages, so those are gross wages, so I'm sure my numbers are only a ball park figure.
