The Sugar Association's president reported to the Board of Director's meeting in October, 1976 that, "in confronting our critics we try never to lose sight of the fact that no confirmed scientific evidence links sugar to the death-dealing diseases. This crucial point is the life blood of the association."

And the Sugar Association was clear about its intention to use science to defeat sugar’s critics. To support "our desire to maintain research as a main prop of the industry's defence," the member companies were told that $230,000 was being reserved to fund scientific research, according to a report from the Sugar Association's annual meeting of the board of directors, in Chicago in 1977.

At the next meeting, a year later in Washington, the Sugar Association updated the board of directors on the research program, listing 17 different scientists at some of the world's most prestigious universities, including M.I.T., Harvard, and Yale, receiving sugar industry money

Some of the money was supplied by "contributing research members," heavy sugar users including "Coca-Cola, Hershey, General Foods, General Mills and Nabisco" who contributed the funds specifically for the lobby group's scientific effort. The document reports that those companies each "contributed $10,000 to our general research fund."

Step sister is chubby, always has been. Pretty lazy kid, but I pin a lot of that on the parents. They basically turned her into a built in babysitter, and never did anything with her.

Clingy doesn't sound bad.

Maybe she won't leave me to hook up with a fat Asian guy for an iPod Touch.

I'm driving along and bam we have a guy going 60. Now I'm not mad because technically he's going the speed limit. There's another clown behind this guy. Now keep in mind this is winter. While there may be no snow on the roads, there are also no leaves on the trees. I can see as far as my two eyes want. I tell myself "I'm going to pass these 2 guys". I see 2 solid yellow lines but I'm also looking ahead, I see the turn and I see through the trees that there's nobody. I take the route often so I feel very comfortable making this pass. I fall back and I give it my all. I'm passing 2 cars here. Fly by both of them then slow down to 80 and keep going.

Moments go buy and guess who's in my rear view mirror. Who else buy Mr. Vigilante himself in his Dodge Charger. I don't know if this guy is chasing me, or just being a jack***. We are going 80 and this guy was right on my ***. So I keep going on my merry way and pull into work. Guess who also pulls into my work. Who else buy this Vigilante. Now where I work you need to be on a special list to get in or you're not getting in. So as I'm going in this clown cuts me off. To everybody else it looks like he's breaking in and all hell breaks loose. I'm sitting there laughing inside going WTF seriously.

Almost instantly the RCMP pull up and this cop was furious with this clown. I'm talking FURIOUS. And all he can say is "He passed a double solid yellow" "He was going 150km/h". Now I laughed and told my buddy that if I was going 150 this clown would have had to be going well over 200 to catch up to me as fast as he did. Anyways cop asks me what's up and what have I done. I tell him what I told you now and he takes my license and registration. Runs my name to see a clean guy. Gives it back and tells me basically to be careful these vigilantes can make police work ridiculously difficult, ad if he really wanted to he could tag me with reckless driving.

Looking back I know what I did to piss him off. To be brutally honest if I were in the exact same situation I'd maybe do it again. It's all situation based. I was late for work, felt comfortable, bla bla bla. I drive a $40,000 machine. I'm not going to deliberately do something to break it.

Anyways. Some of you will laugh, some of you will hate on me for what I did. I just felt like it was a story I could share with my fellow Loungers.

For beowulf (and anybody who cares) It was Rockcliffe Parkway.

EDIT. We're talking Kilomanmeters here. Not Miles.
So you work at the airport or army base, interesting. I am thinking airport because army base would not have RCMP showing up but MPs instead.

All gone.

How can you be a vegetarian in Chicago? Pretty sure they brush their teeth with hotdogs and mustard up there, and wipe their ass with shavings of Italian beef.

Yeah, usually pretty short actually. Never any longer than her shoulders.

Still don't get vegetarians and I have tried. I have even tried the lifestyle for about 8 months and was not for me. I prefer eating meat in moderation and I sure as hell could not give up fish and other sea creatures, love them too much.

RayP's sister is my dream woman, but she's probably in the later half of her college tenure I would assume.

She is a vegetarian because of the treatment of animals. She hates the way they are forced to live, are slaughtered, etc. I agree with all of that, but love meat too much to actually stop eating it.
