If you have a why question, just post it in the comment section and maybe we can help each other out. My big 'why' question today is:

Why do all American bakeries smell like cooked raspberries? Everytime I walk into the grocery store bakery, Sam's Club bakery, Costco bakery, local wedding cake bakery etc. they ALL smell like raspberry compote or something sweet like that. What is the deal? Tell me! Please, it drives me nuts. They can't ALL be making raspberry rugala.

You asked for it:
Why does 'low fat' frozen dinners and boxed foods always have about twice the sodium as the normal dinners?

Why are things that save the planet/environment twice as expensive as the crappy stuff? The vast majority of purchasers are buying the cheap (harmful) stuff because their income level says that is all they can afford.

Just how does bellybutton lint get in there if you have a shirt on over it all day?

..that's all for now. :)

FH, low-fat usually means low-taste so they have to add sodium to make it pallatable. Someone else has to take a stab at the Earth friendly stuff because I wonder about that one too. And I am going to say good old fashioned FRICTION for the belly-button lint question. But I got the giggles thinking about you having an "innie" rather than an "outie" bellybutton. Mine is an innie too FYI. Maybe we are related.

My own personal cut on cost/product. They suddenly stated hyping "Ice Brewed Beer". I have brewed beer for years, so I understand what they are doing. If you lower the temperature to where the beer starts forming ice crystals, you use the ice crystals as a filtering medium. Normally you have to use some other means of filtration. So it is cheaper to use the ice than another filter. Since this extracts some water out of the beer, it causes the alcohol to be in higher concentration, so you get more alcohol out of the same process. Therefore you can market it at a higher price when it it cheaper to produce.

Apply this thinking to every food processing company, and there are MILLIONS to be made.

They must have figured out a cheaper way to make Raspberry flavor.

Why do I feel old when I sit down at the computer and start typing all these smart, wise things but then I feel young whenever I sit in in ANY waiting room, cause it's always filled with eldery folk?

Why did the docs say today that my dad is not a candidate for anything besides medication for his epilepsy?

I'll email you with details. I've been in Detroit for the last two days (making trips) and I haven't been around much. Sorry for being out of touch.
