Lots of "natural " foods are very bad. The old time Maori of my country made a kind of flour from bracken fern root, and used it out of necessity as a staple. It contains an alkaloid toxin that is bitter in flavor and very, very bad for you. For one thing, It is carcinogenic.

Nooalf is favored by linguist posers. The artificiality is obvious when we consider that it is required that a new awkward and imbecilic spelling of a word be created each time it's used.
I'll get over it. For example, your spelling of "favored" is poking me in the eye as I am an Australian, but I realise that you're an American and make allowances for that. Just like you adjust to my culturally different grammar.

It's just that my arm is getting sore from slamming that damn car door.

Not required, but they are optional.

Cool Hand Luke. Good acting job etc....but I found his actual character rather appalling. got all confused with the movie star persona. No one you would actually want to know in real life.

When he was drunk and cutting the heads off parking meters at the beginning of the movie, that was method-acting at its finest.

Method Acting: Method acting is what all actors have always done whenever they acted well.


Strasberg meant that what is called “Method Acting” is nothing new, but rather as old as Western Civilization itself. For centuries, cultures used different words and phrases to describe “good” acting: Romantic Acting, Emotional Acting, Divine Inspiration, The Muses, Feeling the Role. These terms merely described an organic process of creativity that talented actors used, often times unconsciously, to accomplish what audiences experienced as a moving performance.

yea……..I thought he was a total ass in that opening sequence. The kind of guy other guys take advantage of. Do stupid things for their own self destruction for the amusement of others. Like fighting the big guy, eating eggs, or getting into a guards face. We had a guy much like Cool Hand who when drunk would take off all his clothes and walk around talking to people. He didn't do it on his own....but any suggestion he do so would be taken up. Later, I spent 3 weeks with him on a speed boat touring the Bahamas. Drunk on Stingers most evenings.

That's true. I think I must be genetically blessed because as a young adult I drank for recreation and to excess. But never "addicted" and no withdrawals and my liver is just fine. The saying was if you joined the Air Force not drinking, you would leave drinking a little bit. If you joined drinking a little bit, you would leave drinking moderately. If you joined drinking moderately, you would leave an alcoholic. If you joined as an alcoholic....you would die. I joined not drinking at all, and left drinking as an alcoholic does ((Not really, I never chugged a bottle of liquor empty)) but when I noticed/decided my drinking was causing me harm in relationships...I just stopped. Nowdays...I talk about it more than drink. I noticed again just a few days ago that tend to drink when I feel happy and avoid it when sad, and I've always thought I was a happy drunk, my nay sayers not without standing. I don't know if that's unusual or not.....

Of course the Denial is pretty common. Is there a line between drinking too much and being an alcoholic? I think so but those who profit from it say there is not. YMMD....know yourself AND that you are a member of society. Society counts too...…...

Denial reigns supreme in my opinion. A few alcoholics emerge from their denial, but not many. Most of them put up the defenses at a mere mention, and hate you forever if you persist in reminding them. There seems to be no "exit" from that room they live in.

Former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was a good example. He was clearly out of control with his addictions, but he was uniformly combative with everyone about it until his untimely death. There is a story that when he was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy joked about his addiction, and got a big laugh from the audience. When Rob Ford got back stage, he is purported to have had a rage attack against Jimmy Kimmel for making that joke. Some videos surfaced on You Tube of him making death threats against people who had "insulted" him. Somewhat Trump-like behavior.

Are you saying I'm as firm in my denial as was Rob Ford?...……………………..I'll drink to that.

I ate approximately 11 eggs on Monday. It was a mistake.
