In Other News – October 27 2015

2 min read


Dried, cured, processed meats. Yes, including stuff like biltong, bacon, sausages and salamis. They’re all under fire because according to scaremongering, sensationalist headlines they’re the sort of things that’ll significantly increase your risk of bowel cancer. Here’s the thing. I love this stuff. I go crazy for a good cured ham; a bit of Jamon Iberico, or a slice of prosciutto. I’d happily devour a bit of coppa, or a nice salami A bit of bresaola, a bag of biltong? Yum. Only, it’s probably not all that good for you, they say. Is that going to stop me from eating the stuff in moderation? Nope.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Hammersteyn
    • A hot dog I would give at least 2 out of 5…

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I’ll even take mine well done, for extra cancer.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          That’s not well done, that’s burnt. There is a difference. :/

          • Hammersteyn

            Like you’d know the difference

          • Alien Emperor Trevor


          • Hammersteyn

            You forgot … How mus I know you’re posting pics without … Screw you I’m not going home. Still stuck at office

          • Alien Emperor Trevor


          • I can’t see the difference :

          • Pariah

            Don’t judge a steak by its cover!

          • I am more amazed by how you knew that was a steak 😛

          • Pariah

            Well, Trevor mentioned “Well done” – the only time I can think of something being described as such is when steak is involved. Simple extrapolation and observation, really. The picture is another matter entirely.

          • Around here that saying is more designated towards lamb chops. But as someone who is and always will be from Natal, its almost always about the steak 😛

        • Rock789

          Why is that rock on that board? 😉 😛

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Well, what do you know….
            Rock calling the rock, rock.

          • Rock789


          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Because 7 8 9? ;P

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          Looks like roadkill, without the kill

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I have to go outside in a few minutes. I don’t want to. It’s nice & air conditioned in here. Outside is that Sun. Which also gives you cancer.

  • ElNicko

    What happens if I carry on with my meat eating ways and just throw in some Cannabis oil into my diet ?? BOOM , Problem solved !!

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    Nearly every and any carpaccio is great.
    Coppa is a firm favourite though.
    And Parma ham I eat way too often, but too much is never enough 😀

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    Tonight I shall be making some fine pizza!

    • I like thick crust…

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        Thick crust is against my religion… the religion of proper pizza food. ;P
        Also no sauce (with the exclusion of maybe a dash of Tobasco)

        • I like traditional but when it comes to Romans pizza, it’s thick crust or GITFS. Tabasco is a necessity with any pizza!

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Though I will never agree on thick crust (even from Romans) your love for Tobasco means it doesn’t matter what crust you or I prefer. Because Tobasco is life. 😉

          • Lardus-For the Emperor!

            I have tried both Google and Bing…what the heck is GITFS? It is driving me crazy keeping up with you youngsters and your interwebz lingo!

          • Lardus-For the Emperor!

            GITFS – Geoffrey Is The Female Sex?

          • Brady miaau

            Get in the Sea – F optional, I believe

          • Lardus-For the Emperor!

            Oh, so a more polite way to say GTFO? Thanks! Darn brain virus – GITFS!!

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Don’t worry man. Took me forever to get what they’re on about as well. 🙂

          • Just something that Geoff said in an article, that went a little viral on the site 🙂

            GITFS (Get in the F*cking sea)

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja


  • Tortoise

    Bacon, still worth it.

    • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja


  • Lardus-For the Emperor!

    Bomberman…coming to mobile…darnit my parents want it for console or PC! They loved Bomberman back in the day on Sega Saturn!

  • DragonSpirit009

    I shall eat meat every day! Even if it kills me cause then I know I had a good life!!

  • VoidWalker

    So basically all my favorite things are bad for me . . . well fukk it, can’t live forever right?
