The US makes terrible food

It does.
Why do we fall back to earth? Because our weight pushes us down, no laws, no gravity pulling us. It is the law of intelligence.

I haven't been to other countries so I can't really comment.


Screw that logic. U.S. has the best food. Why else are so many Americans fatter than the cows we eat?

145, if you didn't know by now, I'm in the Air Force, it is literally illegal for me to get fat.

Like most countries, it has its share of good and bad. I made the mistake of eating toxic hell taco bell today before work and now I feel like a big pile of poo!

Taco Bell is a yummy pile of goo!

Now does the OP mean that America invents bad food or that we are bad cooks?  ???

The OP means you have no idea what the concept of fine food is.  The US contribution to international cuisine is fast food. Think of Thai food, French cooking, Italian foods, Chinese, Greek, etc.  The US is internationally known as making good hot dogs.


Also, pink slime.

England had the WORST food I've ever had to unfortunately experience.
I saw a slight haze in the hotel bathroom this morning after I took a shower, have I discovered a new planet?

We know what fine cuisine is, we just didn't make it first. We're a young country, all the good food was already around.

But the rest of the world seems to love McDonalds and chicken nuggets. YOU'RE WELCOME

I dont get what the complaint is about pink slime.  Liberals love to point to the "noble savage" tradition of using the entire animal, but when agribusiness does it it is somehow evil.
If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate.

"Noble savages" did not eat the entire animal. -_-

But did commonly eat the portions of beasts that "Pink slime" is being made from, as evidenced by deep scratches left on bone deposits found in their refuse areas.  This is nothing new, though I will admit that the chemical treatment of it could be concerning.

Although admittedly, ammonium treatments aren't as uncommon as you'd think and I'd imagine that a large percentage of it breaks down into (harmless) ammonia by the time we eat it. Blood, and by extension meat, is slightly basic which means that ammonia would be favored over ammonium.

And scratches don't mean they were scraping the bones clean and using those?

If you didn't know already, most fast food companies stopped using pink slime not too long ago. The only well known user of it now is the U.S. school system.

USA:

1. Root beer float's
2. Bundt cakes
3. Turkey & dressing
4. Mac & cheese
5. Chimichanga's
6. Chicken pot pies
7. Steamed Maine lobster

If I was asked to imagine a perfect deity, I would never invent one that suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Christians get points for originality there.

I can't tell you how many little small town breakfast places i've been to that have the best food on the face of the earth. Also, Red Robin is bomb so suck a fuck we don't make the best food, because we do.

The best food I've ever had was fresh fish in Hawaii. I've been to France and Spain and their fish didn't even compare. Also, Mexico has better food than Europe too.

I was in the army for 5 years. Deployed twice. How long have you been in for?
Only about 18 months now.

Thanks for serving, both of you.

I was planning on doing ROTC, but I am not strong enough to make that sacrifice.  Maybe I have too much to lose.  Regardless I plan on joining LAPD, perhaps SWAT, because I can still go home every night.  But I do appreciate those who cannot do the same, so thanks.

Thanks. I wanted to do ROTC but I ended up enlisting. After seeing the real difference between enlisted/officer I am actually glad I didn't go officer. That, and most ROTC cadets are now being denied active duty commissions.

I was in the Marine Corps for 8 years and I have seen plenty of Airmen who were a little pudgy in the midsection, whether it was illegal or not.  I have also seen more than my share of Seamen with a similar condition.  And, I will admit that I have seen Marines who where considered overweight.   

What is the Air Force PFT?  I only know the Marine and Army tests.
