I don't have one of those, unfortunately.

However, we're now up to about a dozen; it will be fun.

Re: Mr. Manatee's (Vero Beach FL) Burger Night Survey

I thought I'd have a lot of competition. Instead, despite a nice turnout, all the others demurred in the face of the picture on the menu. Their seeing the reality of what doesn't really amount to more than two well-dressed burgers, and regretting not having taken the challenge only meant that our photo-op wasn't nearly as impressive.

My rafted-up-buddy Grant was the only other challenger. He'd already proven his mettle on our first outing together ("I finished - but without any of your panache..."), struggled, but has photo proof of his eating his last french fry.

I, on the other hand, enjoy tomatoes (he ate his first, as he doesn't), and used them as an aperitif to rinse out the slight spiciness of the fries.

So, here's a pic of the before and after (well, sort of 'after' as we both had the key lime pie for dessert - which should give you some idea of how much this wasn't really a big deal)...

Re: Mr. Manatee's (Vero Beach FL) Burger Night Survey

Statins are deadly.

Proven to cause diabetes. My father became diabetic, stopped the Statins for other reasons - mainly muscular pain associated with Statins, they attack the muscles, and remember, the heart is muscle - and his follow up diabetes check a few months later, found no trace of diabetes, and he hasn't had a trace in the annual checkups since. Confirmed by FDA now too.

Confirmed by FDA as greatly increasing the risk of contracting Parkinson's disease.

Confirmed in recent testing, that Statins interfere with and block our stem cells ability to heal the body, and therefore cause rapid aging.

Other confirmed issues with Statins too (attacking cholesterol means they attack the brain, which is probably why there are associated loss of memory issues - maybe triggering dementia too), and more problems they cause are in the pipeline for confirmation.

Statins need to be banned, and those pushing them to be prosecuted. I am waiting for the class action to join (I was on them way too long as well).

It has been known for a long time, that the Lipid study (1950's) was seriously flawed, and that cholesterol is NOT the problem (inflammation is, and the biggest cause of inflammation, is carbohydrates, which we are heavily encouraged to eat every which way you look ).

So bin the bun, the fries, and the onion rings, make sure the rest is cooked in animal fat (there are serious issues with most cooking oils as well, and this IS known), and you have a healthy, high fat (the right fat - animal fat), low carb meal.

There's some very serious questions to be asked about what causes furring of the arteries too (most of the usual suspects are already ruled out).

I remember reading a study with autopsy findings of superfit 18 and 19 year old casualties during the Vietnam war. Most already had furring of the arteries(!).

It took a long time to get to the bottom of it, and it turned out to be heat treated (pasteurised) milk. These young men were getting through a LOT of milk, and had been all their lives.

It turned out that the heat treatment process was making the milk fat particles so small, they were passing straight through the stomach wall and into the bloodstream.

That study was in the Science Journal, about 18 years after the end of the Vietnam War (it took them that long to get to the bottom of what was going on).

PPS I wouldn't have the coleslaw either. Uncooked cabbage (and other veg) is bad news for digestion. We are not built to handle it.

PS Tell them your promotional attempts are working, and that if I am passing, I will definitely call in for one of their burgers. A small one though, so they save the T shirt.

Re: Mr. Manatee's (Vero Beach FL) Burger Night Survey

I posted this recently on Andy's thread about diet for single handed sailing, and it provides some good insights. The Gorilla Diet section volunteers, had to be taken off the diet before the two weeks was up, as it was proving so dangerous for their health (a big chunk of associated valuable information has been edited out since the programme aired). I was on an almost identical diet (as an unwitting lab rat, and it had more emphasis on eating fruit) for almost 18 months.

Some of you may find this interesting.

Hey is it a moor outside or a sailthrough by the way?

The city marina is docks and moorings. There are places you can anchor not far from that canal, and dinghy in.

There's no space for anything else in the canal, unfortunately.

Here's a pic of the competitors:

We like it, for all the stuff, not just the burgers. Burger menu is very different other than Monday, but you can still get a plain cb or bcb by asking - just not at that price (5 burger 6 cheeseburger 7 bacon cheeseburger or veggie burger [which is also delicious] in addition to the cheap beer and add-ons, should you need more doctoring than as it comes on the Monday menu).

Highly recommended; they have a variety of seafood nights in addition to the burger Monday...

Re: Mr. Manatee's (Vero Beach FL) Burger Night Survey

Maybe Mr. Manatee could be talked into being a Cruisers Forum monthly giveaway supporter. A couple of $50 gift certificates, a half dozen T-shirts. And all the intracoastal cruisers will flock there for years to come. Of course, this thread alone has already done it for me. . . .
