I'm surprised that the UK is so upset over horsemeat.  My understanding that the revulsion to eating horse was mostly an American thing.

Have you seen their faces? To them it's like eating one of their own.

I think the bigger issue is that BK seems to have lied about it.  I mean, I'm sure they're unhappy about the horsemeat but BK said their stuff was good.

And yes, the revulsion we feel toward the thought of eating horse or dog or cat or whatever is sort of silly when you think about it.  Makes some sense, too.  They're our friends after all.  Still, first world problems.

You guys really do not eat horse meat? They sell it in grocery stores here. Lean meat.

Yep.  Likely has a lot to do with the romanticized (thanks to the wild west stuff) image we have of them.

Didn't a guy die because of his romance with an horse?

Yup. Internal injuries... And he didn't get kicked.

I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

So when do you think Bachmann will be saying she met a mother the previous night that had a son who got a blood transfusion using a gay guy's blood, and now the son is retardedly gay?
When she meets CJ's mom?

It's a North American crop.  Not really really weird that it isn't as popular in the rest of the world.  Same reason you get all sorts of weird veggies when you eat Chinese.

Its used as animal feed in the rest of the world, Its like the equilivant of eating cat food or something, from what ive heard.

Corn was originally grown in Mesoamerica, and was then introduced to the Inca Empire & what became the eastern US. It's still used in the Americas as food. Haven't you ever had corn tortillas?

There's two basic types of corn, the sweet corn and the animal feed corn. The sweet kind is eaten here as well, be it boiled, marinated or popcorn.
What is different is the volume of corn flour in other products. Wheat or potato starch is much more common than corn flour.
