@betajet: Whenever I see B sprouts on the stalk I think of alien "pods" from a 1950s science fiction movie...

They do look a little alien -- maybe life on Earth really was seeded from Mars -- it really makes you wonder what life looks like on alien worlds...

@Elizabeth: A couple years ago I lost 30 lb over about 7 months [...] I've mostly maintainded the weight although it's started back up [...]

It's amazing how easy it is to gain weight, and how hard it is to lose it... (sad face).

I used to worry that beer was making me fat -- but I've found that after a couple of beers I don't worry as much LOL

Pretty scary, aren't they?  Wikipedia says "a popular way of cooking Brussels sprouts is to sauté them".  That's French for "blow them to bits" :-)

A couple years ago I lost 30 lb over about 7 months. The initial week or two getting started was the hardest. I mostly lost between 1 and 2 lbs a week for the first few months then started tapering off the strict diet. Ive mostly maintainded the weight although it's started back up in the last couple months so I need to cut out the extra snacks...

@David: I had a dashiki once which I used to wear when I was at training college [...] my teacher used to call me "Nkrumah" after Kwame Nkrukah, ex leader of Ghana.

You are a man with many stories to tell -- I can't wait to see you at EELive! 2015 to blow the froth off a beer or three.

There's an easy way to lose 50 pounds..... involving a British casino!  but seriously.... the problem isn't really "will" power; it's "won't" power!

@David @Mhrackin: Max, mhrackin above called you out over "pouring over the ancient texts of sprout lore" but the subtlety of his comment obviously did not get to you.  You POUR water over sprouts to cook them, but you PORE over old texts.

I saw that, but I couldn't recall the "pore" form (my mind is going) -- so I thought "don't think and it will come to you" then I forgot all about it LOL -- I just went in and made the change

FYI I just read a BRILLIANT book called "Spell it Out: The Curious, Enthralling, and Extrordinary Story of English Spelling" -- if you ever wondered why we have words spelled differently that sound the same, and words spelled the same that sound different ... this book explains all -- it's 100% recommended.

@mhrackin: ..."pouring over the ancient texts of sprout lore"?  I hope they survive the anointing.

Good eye -- I just made the fix

@David: I recently saw a recipe for Brussels Sprout salad - you shave the leaves into very thin strips, not sure what was with it though, I'll look it up.

I saw a recipe for that somewhere recently also -- that's got to be healthy for you, plus it has the added advantage that no one will steal your lunch from the refrigerator LOL

That reminds me of Red Dwarf when Holly (the ships computer) tells Dave Lister that they ran out of cow's milk ages agoi and he's been drinking dog's milk. Holly goes on to say that dog's mikk has two main advantages -- it lasts for ever because no one will drink it, and if it goes off you can't tell the difference LOL
