This one is scary...

1. The Worst Drink in America
Baskin-Robbins Large Heath Bar Shake



2,310 calories
108 g fat (64 g saturated)
266 g

Let's look at America's Worst Drink in numbers:

73: The number of ingredients that go into this milkshake.
66: The number of teaspoons of sugar this drink contains.
11: The number of Heath Bars you would have to eat to equal the number of calories found in one Baskin Robbins Large Heath Bar Shake.
12: The average number of minutes it takes to consume this drink.
240: The number of minutes you'd need to spend on a treadmill, running at a moderate pace, to burn it off.

Okay, I have to ask because of DeLain's post. . .

Is there any discernable difference between Carl's Jr. and Hardees?  Because I've lived in a few different places here in the States, and I've seen a bunch of Hardee's around, but I don't ever recall seeing a Carl's Jr.  I know the logos are the same and everything, so are they essentially the same restaurant?


Hardees was bought out by the owner of Carl's Jr in 1997.  They don't have the same food though except for some new stuff.  I grew up with Hardees in Minnesota, but it doesn't exist on the west coast.  Carl's Jr is strictly southwest.

Yeah, here in the South they have Hardee's, too.  I knew it was a Midwest thing as well, but I didn't know if the two could be used interchangably or not.

Thanks for clarifying!

Jim Carrey, looking to gain 50 pounds to play Curly in a 3 Stooges movie, should read this thread.

Shoot, just have him do the thing from "Super Size Me"...eat nothing but McDonald's for a month.  hell gain that weight in no time.  and probably keel over from hypertension or a heart attack within a month too.

Supersize Me changed my life. I actually feel ill when I eat McDonalds, which I did less than 10 times last year. I seriously just took fast food off my agenda. I have actually saved money as well cooking at home and having leftovers for lunch.

I also was impressed with the part of that movie where they feed the hyper kids at the Wisconsin school healthy food and no pop. Give them all the water they wanted.

Our own Fargo - Jim Frenette, got mention on the Paul Allen show. Got him excited about the Kentucky Derby, but sounded like Fargo sent him too much knowledge......

You liked that? I didn't send him too much info, he just didn't look at it close enough. They were the exact 20 horses that are running Sat.

It's amazing what a dedicated professional will do to be at the peak of his craft.

Bryant McKinnie obviously shares those same traits.

Man did Weir tear up the course today! (generally a lot of guys were throwing darts today)

One little blip - that double bogey.

Almost slam dunked a hole in one - so close!

Weir isn't my fav but close.

Woods
Mickelson

This cracks me up.
Moras "playoffs?" just keeps giving and giving and giving
Very well done, imo.

Wow!
A Quadrillion-Dollar
Credit Card Bill!





http://www.nbcdfw.com/around_town/shopping/Wow-Quadrillion-Dollar-Credit-Card-Bill.html?yhp=1




I guess this is what happens when you make just the minimum payments. Interest cost on credit cards sure can mount up quickly.

Anyone take the drive down to watch any of it?

I'm looking at you Lynn, what are you an hours drive away?


Another solid major this year so far.

Not me. I looked into getting tickets about six months ago - but at that time you could only buy it in a package - all four days at an exorbitant price.

I think more recently they've been offering tickets in smaller packages - one or two days alone - but this has been a hectic summer with my son's wedding, my back surgery ... so I just didn't want to deal with it. I'm pleased to see the course show so well on tv and all of the complimentary things they've been saying about Minnesota. I suppose everyone is going to want to move here now...

My fault, Toddy.  Tell you what.. I'll watch it with you.  When you get there, find the closest CBS camera crew and stand next to them.  Then, it will be like you're standing next to me as I watch it from home.

Well, not everyone I would think. Hoiseth probably won't but should he decide it was time to meander back he would have to buy his wife a shovel.

Yeah, no threat of that as I sit up north on the lake in the rain again.

The coverage what I saw before thunder and rain disabled my converter box was good. That 625 yard par 5, number 3 I think, is the hardest looking par 5, I have seen. I would need a tent and couple days supply of food and water.

I don't mind the "pre game" stuff. Keeping it on in the background.

I like that guys weren't willing to lay down to Tiger. I can't wait to see how he responds today.
