Somewhere in France two Americans are stuffing themselves silly before embarking on a challenging afternoon (and evening?) ride through the Vercors region. We arrived by train in a small town miles from nowhere (St Haire/Nazaire, a town so nice they named it twice) and now will ride 65 miles back to Grenoble. With as much as we’ve eaten, we won’t have to worry about bonking!
Once in a while you come across a really cool website, something that has just that right combination of bizarre-but-real, potentially just a tad bit gross to think about, and definitely in that you-can’t-make-stuff-like-this-up category.
Today I found a new one. http://www.thisiswhyyourefat.com/ This was actually incidental to the quest I began just a short time ago, when MSN.com displayed a graphic of bacon and stated “It’s not just for breakfast anymore.” As if, I mean, bacon is a true all-day food, great for breakfast (straight up), BLTs for lunch,
and double cheeseburgers with extra bacon for dinner! But by the time I got around to trying to capture their absurd headline and show it here, it was gone, but doing a quick google on bacon came up with something even better!
And if you want to torture your local Starbucks (and burn a few more calories trying to fit into your pants), click on that 7-layer Frappa-something-or-other on the left. Yikes!
