    tuna never goes bad until you open the can then it goes bad quickly.

    ramen(the main staple of my diet) on the other hand never goes bad open or not. plus its cheaper so you can buy more beer and booze.

    If it's dented and appears harmless, I would go for it (although I would cook it a little first, just in case).

    If the can is expanded or bloated, throw that shit out.

    I heard the other day that the average cost of ramen is $.22

    go to taco bell, get a side of beans (.25) and 3 10" flour tortias (.25 each) it'll cost you exactly a dollar, plus tax. ten get a bunch of sauce, mix it in with the beans, and tear off little pieces of the tortias to dip into the beans. it'll fill you up and its cheap as hell. i lived off this stuff for about a year...

    i became vegetarian eight years ago when i had these problems..

    pancake mix, generic mac n cheese were some of my favorite budget meals.

    also, buy spaghetti in huge packs (like 2 lbs.) and you can eat it with margarine and salt and pepper, or splurge for some francesco rinaldi..this will keep for a while

    you can also buy a can of pinto or black beans for about 60 cents, and a pack of flour tortillas for 99 cents..this will last you a bit longer than the taco bell deal will

    An even better idea (since you are on the internet and all) is to download a bunch of recepies for stuff like pasta sauce, alfredo sauce, tortillas and what-not. Then go to your local bulk wholesaler and buy the stuff you need. You can spend a day making enough food to last for a few weeks. Yeah, I know, it's ghetto to make something as simple as tortillas at home, but think about it. A pack of tortillas costs $.99, and there has to be some sort of mark-up on it. So you'd probably save money. And you could sell the extras to your poor friends. This works especially good with pasta sauces (I have a friend that makes his own).

    tortillas are great. get a pig back of them and a couple pounds of shredded cheese (or shred some cheese yourself) and stick that in a toaster over and bam, you got cheese tortillas.

    what you really need though is to save up a little bit of money and get a rice cooker and a 40 or 50 lb bag of rice. it's worth what you'll have to pay up front to have a steady supply of minimal sustinance for like 6 months. that shit has been keeping me alive since i got my own place in august. whenever food runs out, i just keep cooking up a few cups of rice until i get money enough to go to the store. 2 cups of rice and 3.5 cups of water some salt and some oil, push a button and 30 minutes later you have hot food to eat. it's easy as hell. and if you have rice and tortillas and cheese, you can start messing around with that.. i like rice and cheese and salsa on the tortilla, it's like a rice soft taco. plus you can never go wrong with just rice and soy or terriyaki sauce. sometimes i go with ramen over rice. there's a lot you can do with it and it's easy and cheap once you get your cooker.

    be careful of botulism. you can spot this if the can is bulging outwards at the ends.

    but dents mean nothing
