    anyone else that lives in Cali
    refraining from eating BEEF lately?
    I was at the store, big time drop
    in prices on beef products.

    Tina's Beef and Bean burritos- 6 for a dollar
    Tina's Bean and Cheese- 4 for a dollar

    Oscar Meyer Beef Franks- used to be $5
    now theyre only $2...hahaha

    The chicken was all gone!
    The guy at the meat dept was saying
    nobody is buying beef! All the stores
    in that chain reported the same.

    6 restaurants in my area
    reported having contaminated meat.
    Only one went public with it.
    The others wont say who they are!


    anybody wanna go out for some burgers?

    :yum:

    Uh, they have only found 17 percent of the beef recently shipped from Canada to Santa Clara... Just watch out for ground beef, you can eat anything else. steak and what have you.

    It's kinda like acid on your brain. It lies dormant inside of you for quite a long period of time.. and then starts eating away at your brain.

    People can get the same thing from eating other people. I forget what it's called, but it starts with a c.

    Bovine Spongiform Encephalitis.

    Basically, the prions in the meat (kind of like a virus enzyme.. it changes
    proteins to resemble itself, giving that protein the prion characteristics)
    deteriorate your brain into a spongy substance. They've tried burning
    contaminated meat, but found that the prions were present in the ashes.

    as the token canadian.... let me expain something

    the cow that was bought from canada was purchased over a decade ago,
    well before Brittan even knew about BSE (mad cow). Plus it was a dairy
    cow and they aren't supposed to be butchered and eaten.
    BSE gets into cows though their food. Farmers had been feeding cows
    a meal that included bits of sheep goats and other cows. The BSE virus
    lives in the brain and spine of these animals and it was being eaten by
    other cows. All this would have happened after it left canada.

    the solution: Eat kosher meat.

    For a cut of meat to be kocher, the cow cant have been fed meat in it's food.
    They wont eat 'downers' (a cow that cant stand up) and that's an early sign of BSE.
    Plus many cows are stunned with a blast of air in their mouth before being killed.
    This can spread the virus right before the butchering. Kosher rules forbid this.

    yeah.... where's the beef!?

    Hasn't there only ever been a handful of cases of Mad Cow found in humans?

    I am prohibited from giving blood since I lived in Britain in the 80's. Maybe I have mad cow and don't even know it....

    become vegetarian!! :)
    Yea, i know you guys won't, but it was worth a shot.
    Seriously, cows are supposed to be fed grains and barley and crap, not other animals! What the hell....

    Speaking of cows, on my way to work on Tuesday there was mad traffic on the expressway. I look at the truck next to me and its filled to the brim with cows. They had teeny windows for air (mind you, this was the day it was 5 degrees outside) and one of them had his little nose stuck out and there were big ol icicles hanging off of them...I felt bad.

    Who knows where they were going...butcher shop i presumed so my eyes started tearing (I make myself sick how sensitive i am with that stuff)

    Then, the next day, traffic is beautifully smooth. I'm going like, 70mph when i look to my left, and there was the cow truck again!! Luckily i didn't see them today otherwise i'd get superstitious and think it was some omen....

    most pointless early morning rambling i ever wrote!!
