  1. only if they wear skirts, not slacks
  2. Dead serious... I was shocked when we had that conversation recently.... I explained why, but it wasn't seeming to sink in.... So I finally just told her, 28% first....no more discussion. Of course, we never got to the discussion about why she had decided to use a 28% APR credit card... But then again, she didn't actually know what the interest rates were on any of the cards she was using. It seems to be that what Thai students here really need to be taught, among other things, are real life skills to help them do better in their jobs, their lives, their families.... Personal finance, health education, basic work habits and skills, etc etc. But it certainly seems to me that that's not what they're getting at all. lots of rote memorization, automatic passing course, lack of developing, stimulating, challenging the mind, training the mind to think critically

  4. condolences man. how can an mba not understand why better to pay off higher % loan first? are you serious or being lighthearted?
  5. rubbish. It is not about McDonalds it is about people who eat to much and too one-sided mcdonalds does indeed serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and dessert items. shakes. sundaes. are we to believe they would discourage their customers from eating 3 meals a day there? Super Size Me From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search For the Beavis and Butt-Head episode, see Supersize Me (Beavis and Butt-Head). Super Size Me Theatrical release poster Directed by Morgan Spurlock Produced by Morgan Spurlock Written by Morgan Spurlock Starring Morgan Spurlock Alexandra Jamieson Cinematography Scott Ambrozy Edited by Julie "Bob" Lombardi Production company The Con Distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films Roadside Attractions Release date May 7, 2004 Running time 98 minutes Country United States Language English Budget $65,000[1][2] Box office $22.2 million[2] Super Size Me is a 2004 American documentary film directed by and starring Morgan Spurlock, an American independent filmmaker. Spurlock's film follows a 30-day period from February 1 to March 2, 2003, during which he ate only McDonald's food. The film documents this lifestyle's drastic effect on Spurlock's physical and psychological well-being, and explores the fast food industry's corporate influence, including how it encourages poor nutrition for its own profit. Spurlock ate at McDonald's restaurants three times per day, eating every item on the chain's menu at least once. Spurlock consumed an average of 20.9 megajoules or 5,000 kcal (the equivalent of 9.26 Big Macs) per day during the experiment. An intake of around 2,500 kcal within a healthy balanced diet is more generally recommended for a man to maintain his weight.[3] As a result, the then-32-year-old Spurlock gained 11.1 kilograms (24 lb), a 13% body mass increase, increased his cholesterol to 230 mg/dL (6.0 mmol/L), and experienced mood swings, sexual dysfunction, and fat accumulation in his liver. It took Spurlock fourteen months to lose all the weight gained from his experiment using a vegan diet supervised by his then-girlfriend, a chef who specializes in gourmet vegan dishes. The reason for Spurlock's investigation was the increasing spread of obesity throughout U.S. society, which the Surgeon General has declared "epidemic", and the corresponding lawsuit brought against McDonald's on behalf of two overweight girls, who, it was alleged, became obese as a result of eating McDonald's food (Pelman v. McDonald's Corp., 237 F. Supp. 2d 512).[4] Spurlock argued that although the lawsuit against McDonald's failed (and subsequently many state legislatures have legislated against product liability actions against producers and distributors of "fast food") as well as the McLibel case,[5][6] much of the same criticism leveled against the tobacco companies applies to fast food franchises whose product is both physiologically addictive and physically harmful.[7][8]

  12. true story. he ate only at mcdonalds for a couple of months, got fat, had liver function blood tests like that of alcoholic liver disease. doctors told him his life and well being were in jeopardy. thailand is a great market for us style fast/crap food.
