Apparently this was all a hacking of Apple's iCloud service, which automatically backs up all photos taken on iPhones even after they've been deleted on the device. Proving the NSA is not the biggest privacy concern one should have today.

You have to admit though, her selfies were very tastefully done.

I consider the Frosty to be the shake at Wendy's.  If you want something sweet, I recommend trying Chobani Greek Yogurts. But at fast food, I'd really prefer your only sweet treat to be your diet soda.

When you get those cravings Bushie, just think long term. October 1st isn't a long time from now. You're not giving anything up cold turkey here. Your next shake is coming, just give it awhile.

You can get a different veggie. But remember corn is not a veggie. The point is, meals that are complete are more filling and easier to control in terms of calories than eating light carbs that don't fill you up. 2000 calories of steak, potatoes, and a green is far easier to eat than 2000 calories of bologna and cheese sandwiches

Have you ever had a caeser salad before, Bushie? You'd like it. Try eating a chicken caeser salad as a meal.



Also, go to KFC or Chick Fil A for fast food. Chicken is much better than beef. Here's a KFC suggestion

5pc max chicken strips
Unlimited green bean orders
1 biscuit

No more no less on the strips and biscuit. You can have as many green beans as you want.

Alternatively, if you must have a side like Mashed Potatoes, you can replace the 5 strips with 3 Grilled Chicken pieces, and then you can add a single mashed potatoes to the order.



As for your fast food burger addiction, I'm actually a big fan of burgers. The real calorie crux comes from the french fries and shakes. I want you to try one thing for me, Bushie, I want you to give up french fries and shakes for a month.

1 Braum's burger
1 side salad (they have it on the menu)
1 Diet Dr Pepper

I know, I know... salad is going too fast! But if you can't handle the freakin' salad yet, I'd honestly rather you order a bigger burger than eat any fries or shake.

My tip for making the salad more tolerable for you would be to not eat as a salad but to put it on your burger. Take a handful of the lettuce, carrots, cabbage, etc and just put it on top of the lettuce already on the burger. You probably won't notice it, in fact, you might like it.

That's my constructive advice for the day.

I only have 1100 calories left today so I can't afford much.

1100 = can't afford much is because you only eat garbage.

An 8 oz sirloin with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli from Texas Roadhouse clocks in at 920 calories. But a las, even that is too healthy for you. You'd rather have "few ham sandwiches" for  1100 calories that leave you completely unsatisfied and still be hungry afterwards and have to go get some ice cream to fill your stomach.

There's no evidence you're in a process to change. There's no steps being taken.

A process would be from going to eating 0 vegetables to eating vegetables once a week. Or going from eating a burger every day to eating a burger every other day.

Hell, going for a walk once a fiscal quarter would be more signs of there being a process here.

If you were doing things even close to right or being at all interested in doing things close to right, we wouldn't be mocking you.

You eating hamburgers and ice cream all day, effectively sitting in a chair for 48 hours straight*, and you complain about a massive headache like it came out of nowhere or "because I'm getting old."  You gave yourself a headache.  There is no debate.

*Yes, I know you got up to go to the bathroom, walked to the car to drive to Sonic, and put your trash in the dumpster, but that's 500 steps of walking tops. 1000 if I'm being ultra generous. The average American walks 5000 steps per day and the average American is overweight as well and walks half as much as average people around the world. That is how far you are from normal activity.

It's okay Bushie. You need encouragement. Progress, not perfection.  Keep making substitutions (skip the bacon, BBQ sauce instead of mayo, drink a glass of water before a meal, etc).

Bushie won't change by bullying him or making fun of him.

He loathes water and skipping bacon. It's really insensitive of you to suggest he do such a thing, snowbully283.6

Weird Bushie.  Its almost like sitting in a chair for 48 hours straight watching football and eating junk food is bad for you or something.

Bushie, it's nice to have goals but you need to do something in order to reach them.

I am doing something to reach them and I am reaching them.  I am exercising portion control.

But with what you eat, you're clearly on a path to flatline well short of your goals. Whereas before you were eating like a 350 lb man and your weight was ballooning up and up, now you're eating like a 280-285 pound man, so your weight declined to the range, but trust me it is staying in that range until you change.

The sad part is how ordinary his takes on football are for someone who watches as much of it as he apparently does.

Well if he's like my Grandpa binge watching sports, he probably naps through 4/5ths of every game

Holy crap Bushie. Seriously buy a video game or something if you're going to waste weekends this meaninglessly.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Wal-Mart experimenting with nurse clinics in non-Medicaid expansion states on: August 29, 2014, 05:12:37 pm
link

Quote
Wal-Mart has played it safe when it comes to retail clinics, partnering with regional hospitals to offer services like flu shots. But now, the retailer is taking a more aggressive tack, with in-store branded clinics offering primary care at a price competitors may find hard to match.

...

The price? Just $4 for employees and dependents on the company's health plan. For customers, the price is $40—about the same as an online telemedicine consultation with a doctor.

Wal-Mart is able to price it that low, in part because the clinics are staffed by nurse practitioners from Quadmed, a provider of on-site workplace clinics.

What triggered this new business venture? The individual mandate combined with the lack of support by state governments in the South for the exchanges and Medicaid, has caused more of its employees to buy into company insurance instead of pursuing individual.

Quote
Earlier this month, the retailer revealed its health costs were expected to increase by $500 million this year because more of its workers than expected are signing up for its health-insurance benefits.

...

Wal-Mart is launching the clinic pilot program in three states that didn't expand Medicaid—Texas, South Carolina and Georgia—states that also have a high concentration of uninsured residents.

I'm not sure if this is good news or not. It's good in that it is one way to help bridge the gap in Republican states that are blocking Medicaid expansion but at the same time it may make them even less urgent to act. But then it also makes WalMart now have an active interest in the insurance mandate staying around if this proves profitable.

19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Three Term Vice President on: August 29, 2014, 12:22:30 pm
There's technically no term limit on being Vice President of the United States. We've never had one go three terms as FDR switched out his running mates.

Could you ever see a VP going two terms with a President and then giving way to another candidate and running as his VP? There could be a mentorship aspect involved.
20  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Do you remember this commercial? on: August 29, 2014, 12:13:05 pm
I'm still baffled by this. There's nothing remotely memorable about this commercial.

It was the only commercial on Nickelodeon that wasn't for a toy or cereal and it played at least once every hour, like their strategy was to get kids in hot living rooms to beg their parents to buy a Sears AC. It made no sense to any kid why he was watching it and it always stuck.

22  General Politics / International General Discussion / Rank these Internet Americans opinions on Russian situation on: August 29, 2014, 11:57:29 am
From the article "Don't mess with nuclear Russia, Putin says"

a) Putin is the George Washington of the 21st Century. Hate or like him, this guy has a Patriotism, Morals, Discipline, Honor and stands for something he believes in. These virtues make great leaders of which Washington and EU leaders are not !!!

b) Much as I hate what this guy does, it would be reassuring to have your leader so clearly, and firmly, behind his country. Unlike what we see in America.

c) IF THE CLUELESS OBAMA, PUTS THE MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM BACK IN POLAND, AND HE MUSES AS HE LIKES TO DO ABOUT THE POSSIBLE MOVE AFTER 70 YEARS OF TROOPS FROM GERMANY TO POLAND, THEN HE MIGHT GET PUTIN'S ATTENTION. HE MAY EVEN BE CREDITED WITH HAVING A PAIR, WHICH HE IS NOT PERCEIVED AS HAVING.

d) With Obama cutting our military by 60% Russia is just moving into the dominate role of the world.

e) There was a time when the US was able to say that. But the liberals and progressives believe we should all get along. Even if that destroys this great country.

f) Let's nuke them and be done with this

g) Why not let Russia deal with Russia? It seems like democrats want us all to burn in a nuclear holocaust. I fear democrats a bazillion times more than I fear Putin.

h) Putin is a better friend to the United States than Obama is.

Bushie's too short to be lineman. Even in high school, they're all about 6'0" minimum. He'd have to be a running back.

It's far too late for that, even in adult intermural.
