WTF Nando’s!?

• I love Nando’s

• I love outdoor dining

• I love Rio

But P L E A S E give me real flatware, a stack of napkins, and the soda machine (paper cups are fine I guess).

Livers and wings have been in every order I’ve ever placed here. But you’re out? Not cool. At all. Oh yeah and corn. Corn would be good.

Seriously, I get that the community sauce jars are not a great idea during a pandemic, but you’re obviously washing the plates and bowls with a high temp commercial dish machine, so why not real flatware? I understand the touch screen soda machine might be a bad idea, but also why no kids apple juice?

Huge fail. You can do better. The end.

Can – Little Star of Bethlehem 

from Delay, 1968

Soda pop is best in the morning when you don’t have nothing to talk about.

Yet another reason I’m so proud to have been born in 1968.

What happens within an hour of drinking a coke.

I’m going for a Dr. Pepper. Reading this turned me into a fiend.

Within the first 10 minutes, 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. This is 100 percent of your recommended daily intake, and the only reason you don’t vomit as a result of the overwhelming sweetness is because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor.

Within 20 minutes, your blood sugar spikes, and your liver responds to the resulting insulin burst by turning massive amounts of sugar into fat.

Within 40 minutes, caffeine absorption is complete; your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, and your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream.

Around 45 minutes, your body increases dopamine production, which stimulates the pleasure centers of your brain – a physically identical response to that of heroin, by the way.

After 60 minutes, you’ll start to have a sugar crash. — blakewhitman

Coke is the new cocaine, or is it the old one? — poortaste

And drinking the diet gives you cancer later on! — courtneyj

LJ:
I’m sorry, but this “article” hit pseudoscience the instant they mentioned 10 teaspoons of sugar without indicating how much coke that is it. I suspect they’re repeating the bullshit claim that each can of coke has 10 teaspoons of sugar.

10 teaspoons of sugar in a can of water makes a thick syrupy liquid that’s not drinkable, even if you could keep the sugar dissolved in that much water without crystallizing out when cold, and it’s nowhere NEAR the thin consistency of coke. 10 teaspoons in a small bottle of coke (slightly more liquid than a can) isn’t much different, and you really need to move up to a large 600ml or 1 liter bottle of coke before the consistently is close, let alone the taste.

A single can of coke distills down into a tablespoon of thick syrupy liquid, containing all solids. If the coca-cola company has managed to fit 10 teaspoons of sugar plus the other solids in one tablespoon of syrup, then I guess they should be awarded for creating a new realm of physics.

“45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.”

I thought it was stupid to mention that its the same way heroin works. EATING ANY FOOD stimulates the pleasure center in your brain.

The moral of the story? When people are trying to scare you, you are getting jerked off. Eat a sane, balanced diet, exercise and ignore scaremongers.
