Loved Cloverfield, but yes, there are talks about a sequel. Kinda sucky, it works amazingly as a standalone movie where we don't know too much about it (unless you read the internet speculation).

Exactly, they would be ruining the mysteriousness, which is a really big point of the movie. Naturally, people are going to want to delve deeper, look into it, find things out et cetera but if it's just given to them... well it would be like asking KFC for their secret recipe and having a bucketfull of spices thrown into your mouth.

Isn't that how KFC severs food anyway? Just bung a load of spices together, throw onto something that resembles (somewhat) meat, call it chicken, and serve?

Bah, KFC! This is why Subway is marginally better. At least they are fairly healthy.

Maybe, but also KFC.

Subway used to be my saviour, i'd finish work at the pub at 2ish and that stunning little place would still be open waiting just for me to go get my Meatball sub with all the trimmings, onion and honey mustard sauce on Honey oat bread.

1) The people who have to work there at 2 in the morning (Like, me, tonight) hate you.
2) The Meatball Marinara sandwich from Subway is the unhealthiest thing in the entire fast food market.

Unhealthy... tastes good... makes you fat... makes you go mmm... so much to concider...

What makes the Meatball Marinara so unhealthy (I never eat at Subway so I'm okay... although I do occasionally eat fried chicken which apparently increases your immunity to penicillin..)?

I don't eat the meatball marinara simply because it's beef, but I would also like to know what makes it so unhealthy. I don't tend to eat subways that often because of the cost.

The meatball marinara is packed with more calories than any other sub, and I'm assuming the meat isn't necessarily the most exquisite around.

Good to know, I'll stick with my turkey ham and ham with extra cheese and mayo (at least I'm not fooling myself into believing it's even slightly healthy).

Screw unhealthy, it was 2am, i'd just spent 6 hours pulling pints and stopping fights in a fag and slag filled environment. D'ya think i gave a rats ass if it was bad for me.

Odd little fact I found out today (connected to unhealthy fast food), turns out that McDonalds don't actually use egg logs in their breakfast foods.

For those who don't know, an egg log (and if anyone can find me a website with adequate information of said log I'd appreciate it because Google is turning up nothing) is basically... well a log of processed egg which fast food establishments would cut up into little discs and fry them for their breakfast foods (see Clerks 2 to see it in action). Judging by the perfectly circular lumps of egg that seem to come with the McDonalds breakfast foods such as the sausage and egg mcmuffin, it would be reasonable to assume that they use such techniques.

But, it seems McDonalds (this being confirmed by ex-employees) actually uses real eggs and an odd system of making them round and thick to fit the muffin. Who knew, McDonalds actually cares... a little... about their food.

I think a McDonald's employee spit in my hastily ordered breakfast after over hearing me use some sexist terminology even though I wasn't talking about her. It all really came down to the fact that I tried to order a regular meal during breakfast hours thinking it was much later in the day. It made me wonder what made me desire ****ty food in the first place.

I think that slightly nasty processed egg can be identified by there being no distinction between white and yolk, like scrambled egg.

McMuffins are definitely the epitome of fast food in my opinion. You can make those McMuffin-style eggs really easily by just microwaving them in a small plastic container (you can get them that produce pretty much the same size egg). Get some sausage meat, cheese slices, and muffins, and you can have a pretty tasty alternative should you fancy a McMuffin at, like, midnight!

McMuffins at midnight... now there's a dream. I sometimes make sausage and egg sandwiches for breakfast when I'm having a fat day... they're just not the same.

Fag and slag? What about the smoking ban? Young slag and slightly younger baby, perhaps, but no fags, unless you are BREAKING THE LAW.

Yeah, google was pretty fruitless. Maybe "egg log" is a really obscure term for it. To be honest though, thier special technique of cooking the egg to make it rounder could be dangerous and lethal.

There is a site which tells you how to make things like mcmuffin sandwich things and all that malarkey. The man who does it is quite annoying but it can be pretty interesting and is apparently a good source. http://www.topsecretrecipes.com/home.asp

Not really, I simply didn't bother explaining it in my last post, their technique is simply breaking an egg in a metal ring on the griddle and placing boiling water on top (in a pot) to steam the top so that it cooks on the top as it does on the bottom. Nothing particularly lethal about it and apparently the eggs are free range.

Hmm... good job McDonalds. Reminds me, yesterday at my school some chavs were listening to music on the speaker on their phones (hooray for maximum treble ČČ) and I recognised it, so I asked the phone holder what it was and he said "MC Donalds". I'm not sure if he realised that the name was an obvious piss-take, and I'm not sure if he realised that it was Led Zeppelin (dyer maker ) sped up to x2 speed with a weird drum beat and some random Flash Gordon type sound effects over it that didn't seem to appreciate how music worked, and were probably just there for the beer and bitches. It sort of made me laugh a bit at the likelihood of it being a satirical exploitation of how people seem to approach their music nowadays, but it also made me die a bit inside. Just a bit.

I hate it when people take good music, speed it up at a beat and turn it into dance music. I really don't know what must be going through a persons head to make them like music like that (yes, different stokes an all that, but whilst I don't like certain music such as rap and RnB, I can appreciate it and understand why people like it, dance music I really can't get my head around).

I think that's the best post Fealiks has ever made! Truly! It deserves love loving respect.

Also, I used to live right opposite a McDonalds and a Subway. Let me tell you, it was brilliant, though not for my waistline.

Why thank you.

While we are still on McDonalds/silly delinquent children, in Hinckley (crappy town where my dad lives) there used to be a McDonalds literally next door to a Subway, but the McDonalds recently got shut down. It obviously used to be a chav nest (aren't all McDonaldses?) and on the board the council put up infront of it after it was shut down, some chav had written "CUM BAK DIK ED" in tippex. God's honest truth. Still brings a tear of laughter to my eye.

I can't rest easy unless I know that my eggs were harvested from a 7 vaginaed 2 headed hen who gets beat silly every morning with a shovel until she pops out 12.5 eggs, then spends the rest of the day chained to the floor, being fed steroids while watching MTV.

Yeah, in the 20s when Maggie Thatcher invented TV, MTV played music. Or something. It was a long time ago, maybe the historians couldn't figure it out.

That was back in early 06, before the ban. There were plenty of slags.

The afore mentioned establishment that pathetically, i can't even bring myself to type is also allegedly responsible for a ridiculous amount of rainforest destruction, approximately 2000 hectares A DAY. It was a fantastic place when i was a kid, even the mick and mac games were awesome but to learn what they're responsible for, just destroys all those childhood fantasies they created. They do alot for the elderly with clubs etc but my priorities are with the environment. Which they're failing with.
On another note, Marks n Spencers seem to have good intentions on the subject of sustainability.

How can one little pub be responsible for nearly 2 million acres of rainforests being cut down every year? Were they shaking the rain into their glasses and eating the bark? Maybe they needed extra room for a patio so they cut down some trees? Whatever the reason, there is no way they cut down that many rainforests a day. And besides, trees grow back. It's not like wood doesn't grow on trees for christ's sake.
I don't think deforestation and all that is as big a problem it's made out to be. I haven't read up much on this but it doesn't add up that "milloins of treez r cut down evry day and ppl r dying from it". Maybe it's a little bit of a problem, but I don't see what all the fuss is about. People swallow anything that's fed to them but they shouldn't, they should be questioning everything and saying "hang on a minute this tastes weird", thinking about just how much forest there is in the world and how fast it would all be gone if this is all true and how if the ice is already in the water, melting it wont do **** to our sea levels. Careful what you eat.

Well, from someone who has read up on it, it's a bigger problem then you think. Just because tree's grow doesn't mean they always grow back after being chopped down. In fact, half the time, they plain don't grow back, as the animals that once lived in those tree's are no longer their to provide a decent fertilizer for the trees to grow back in.
Plus, most of the time, when they're cut down they do so for the land, so if they put a great big highway through what used to be lush forest, those trees ain't coming back. Yes, a lot of what people say about deforestation is crap, it's not the soul cause of global warming for a start (if anything, we can put that down to the methane produced by ourselves and most cows (those two candidates being the biggest contributer)) and plus freshwater algae produces more oxygen than trees do.

But, one problem scientists seem to have with deforestation is the fact that a good chunk of the Amazon hasn't been explored yet and is slowly being taken away. This means that certain rare plants an animals that live deep in the Amazon forest are being wiped out, and for all we know, such plants or animals could provide a great benefit to mankind (such as cures for certain illnesses and so on). But of course we'll never know if we lose the forests.

As for ice melting not doing **** to our sea levels, you are aware ice floats right? If the ice were completely submerged then yes, it wouldn't make a difference (would even lower the sea levels if they melted), but since there are huge chunks out of the water (like the polar ice caps for instance) then of course it would make a difference. And not just to sea levels, that's a giant chunk of freshwater being dumped right into the Atlantic sea, salt water. If that happened, the salt water would sink and temperatures of the water would fluctuate causing shifts in major ocean currents... not good for our weather.
