    RIP James Gandolfolini: Was it the Pasta and the Canolli?

    Primal Fuel
    Famed Soprano's star dies of a Heart Attack; in the news; slightly overweight; got me speculating; if the actor might have eaten an "Italian Diet" of lots of starch and carbohydrate?

    Probably just SAD.
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    Primal dieters also all die.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    In the absence of evidence to the contrary, it is safe to assume that just about every American eats too many processed carbs.

    no we don't, we just change our identities so we won't be taken by scientists and studied should our secret get out
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    He was from Jersey and lived in NYC, right? Do we assume that one's diet is dictated by the country in which they happen to be in at the time of one's death?

    But, but... his family was of Italian origin, he acted as an Italian mafia boss, and he had a physiognomy like a typical Italian pasta eater! Well, to be honest I don’t know his diet, he might as well have been a SAD eater. It’s sad anyway to leave the scene at that young age, so R.I.P. Gandolfolini…

    italians are starting to eat more like americans and are getting fatter, but traditionally cannoli was a rare treat, not an everyday thing and most italians were slim.

    i'm sure gandolfini just ate too much of everything -- he was a huge dude.

    i also know skinny guys who have had massive heart attacks.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
