I tried stink's green chili cause I listen to 104.3 all the time and he use to pimp it non stop when they were with espn. I didn't care for it but I like papa johns, Ed's mustard, and coors a lot.

Well I like Green Chili.... and Stink's is pretty good.

Papa John's is pretty ****ty food. Their wings taste like styrofoam.... so does the pizza. The best part about it is the Pepperoncini is comes with. But it's overpriced... and if I'm in a "garbage loading" mood, for my money, Little Ceasar's beats Papa John's every time.

Coors to me just tastes like water... I'll stick to Fat Tire, Odell 90 Schilling, Santa Fe Camper, or Ranger IPA .... or Kwak, Delerium, or Rochefort Trappistes 8 when I'm in Europe.

With so many great beers out there, ain't nobody got time for **** beer like Coors and Bud. (PBR was okay in college, lol.)

I can understand that every beer topic has an ipa beer snob but little ceasars is better than papa johns?

In the 1990s, I purchased EAS supplements because the Denver Broncos were using them. I ended up getting diarrhea a lot and my scrotum (a.k.a nutsack) shrunk so I quit using the products.
Never purchased anything because of somebody endorsed it. Well maybe back in the 90's. I bought some Air Jordans because anybody who played basketball wanted them. But that's about it.

Sounds like hipster contrarianism to me, but if you post a link I'd give it a fair read. Anyway I generally don't look to fellas with a Ph.D in economics as an expert on nutrition. I'm fairly certain Eric Schlosser would kill him in a debate on the subject.

I always find Levitt's stuff interesting. You can label him but he uses economics, a social science, to look at social issues as opposed to just monetary issues. He is also a professor of economics at the premier economics school in the country at the University of Chicago. When I taught economics I used his stuff for enrichment and had several students go on to major in economics because of our study of Freakenomics. There is a free course guide and curriculum for the book. Much of their stuff is controversial and provocative but a fun read nonetheless.

I could not find the article on the Freakenomics blog. I found a post by Dubner, Freakenomics coauther, that a read makes the claim, sort of.
http://www.freakonomics.com/2013/03/...human-history/

There are also plenty of economical arguements for vegetarians too.

As for a Schlosser Levitt debate....that would be interesting. Levitt has been attacked by realtors, police, politicians, etc. He is an intelligent guy too, and can make very compelling arguements. Don't discount him.

Stink's green chile is not bad in a pinch, but nothing beats home made.

I'm not discounting Levitt at all. I've read Freakonomics and would value his opinion on a variety of subjects. Actually the fact that I was interested in reading his argument, if it existed, that a McDonald's sandwich is the most nutritious thing you could buy for the money, is a testament to how much I value his opinion. Because it's a ridiculous statement and it deserves to be discounted off hand, and would have been had it been attributed to most other sources.

Turns out of course that the argument does not exist and was falsely attributed to him (unless there is another blog besides the one you posted). The Schlosser Levitt debate probably wouldn't happen because I doubt Levitt is foolish enough to make that argument.

As a guy who is pursuing a Ph.D in economics, I can say that we are expert data-crunchers who excel at finding hidden meaning in abstract numbers. While a doctor of economics isn't necessarily a medical doctor, I'd still trust an economist with health data (especially an epidemiological economist) more than just about anyone else who isn't an MD, lol.

Anyway, here's the link:

Looks like it came from Dubner's blog, not Leavit's. That's my bad.

Wheaties box that featured the SB 32 team. Commemorative glasses at arby's. Commemorative SB 32 Coke bottles. 1977 RC Cola had Bronco bio's on the side, bought a bunch just for the players.

Ed McCaffreys entire line. Safeway had them last time I was stateside. Damn good stuff.

Stinks Green Chili.

Never saw the Easy Ed O's or his root beer. Never saw TD's bbq either, but willing to try it.

Almost bought a car at a dealership owned by Floyd Little, not on purpose. A former nugget Willie White or Pete Williams was a car salesman there. Randy Gradishar was doing a signing which is why I went.

Bought then waited in line to get signed my 3 Amigo's poster.......... Worst part, had to go to 2 different malls to do it, those guys were briefly really popular!
