Two attractive men on one stage. No, you are not a perv.
I think you might've misunderstood me Pam ( though it's no slight to the two gents on stage
) - I wasn't referring to either of those two, but rather an audience member :-//
And at the risk of being controversial, I've traveled a bit. When it comes to slapping meat and cheese on bread/buns ( like a hoagie ), our German friends ain't too shy either X-D Now, I didn't see a 12" bun but do three, 4" buns with meat and cheese add up to 12" and +/- some calories? X-D
Mine is not a typical diet I don't think but here's one Americans food consumption today ( this is not all eaten at once...ugh, I'd be dead ):
two pieces of pizza
my own salad concotion of 6 hardboiled eggs ( no yolks ) diced with a bit of mayo and mustard, plopped down on a few pieces of lettuce and a fresh cucumbur quartered...1 tbsp french onion dippin sauce on side for cucumbur
1 entire can of Lentil soup by some company
my own desert concoction of: 1tbsp of very low fat crunchy peanut butter melted and poured over triple chocolate low fat frozen yogurt and chocolate syrup dribbled over it
10 glasses of water
a cup of coffee
( This is just so THRILLING isn't it?! X-D :-// - pardon my example )
This is all eaten over a 12 hour period with several walks in between and right now I feel like a bloated pig. I'm an American and I eat this way because I'm both lazy and hyper-active ( sports ), and very dull as well if you haven't noticed.
I take your point though. Part of our problem, culturally, is that our sit down meals, even socially ( at restaurants for instance ), tend to be eaten much faster than what I've experienced elsewhere. I might not be wording that quite clearly but oh hell, oh well X-D I think our fixation on 'fast' food isn't just about the food but, well, that it's 'fast'. Not everyone reckons Time the same way I don't think.
