Caption This: “Chinese red-faced after photo fakery goes global “

by coldwarrior ( 168 Comments › )
Filed under Open thread at July 1st, 2011 - 8:00 pm

Government officials in a rural corner of China wanted to inform residents they were inspecting a new road.

Instead, it appears they have gained global ridicule and notoriety as the stars of what is being described as a contender for the worst-doctored photograph in internet history.

    Obviously a fake. What would a Frenchman be doing dead on a road in China?

Just the thought of something being turned into a sweetener freaks me out. I get so pissed when I see the commercials saying how the body can’t tell the difference. Yeah, maybe it can’t, until the damage is done. And I did not know that about oncology research. Tell me more…or even post some links for me. I would like to know about this.

    @ Dolphin:
    Number one….no soda. The body cannot process HFCS. That is the main thing. Number two is the same as anything…burn more than you take in. My brother found a book that, it is a pseudo diet…eating for your blood type. He has told me things I should avoid and things I should have more of. The funny thing is, his wife is allowed all the stuff he isn’t and vice versa. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but the HFCS shit really freaks me out. Go read the ingredients in your condiments…mustard, ketchup. It’s in every damn thing. No way in hell is that healthy.

    Number one….no soda. The body cannot process HFCS. That is the main thing. Number two is the same as anything…burn more than you take in. My brother found a book that, it is a pseudo diet…eating for your blood type. He has told me things I should avoid and things I should have more of. The funny thing is, his wife is allowed all the stuff he isn’t and vice versa. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but the HFCS shit really freaks me out. Go read the ingredients in your condiments…mustard, ketchup. It’s in every damn thing. No way in hell is that healthy.

    well soda is just evil in a can. artificially carbonated drinks (beer is safe) leech calcium from your bones it’s not good for any one but women who drink it are just asking for osteoporosis.

    It isn’t always that simple though. I have a thyroid problem. It is called Hashimoto’s. When my thyroid is not working at full function, the gland itself swells up to try and pump out more hormones. But it can’t maintain that, so it shrivels up again and really messes with my metabolism.

    Hashimotos ? avoid fruit and HFCS. Increase you whole grain intake, avoid fats especially dairy & red meat, increase you fish intake & ask your doctor if iodine (like that found in seaweed) is right for you.

After that, do the reseach on the holistic side of if and propose back to him that you do both RX & holistic if he agrees. Go prepared to prove your case.

The only way I will eat anything made of grain is if it is beer-- or if I am dying of starvation and there are no bunny-rabbits or squirrels or wild hogs to kill.

    Am I the only person here who truly HATES cheetos?

    I mean, I cannot stand the smell of Cheetos, or Fritos, or most bagged snack foods. I also cannot stand the smell of anything from Wendy’s.

    Cheetos? If I want something that tastes like cheese, I will eat…you guessed it…CHEESE. I know it costs money, but it contains protein (which my body likes) and calcium (ditto).

    Don’t know what this means, but it is reported by Politico that two top Iowa staffers for Herman Cain’s campaign have resigned. This comes on the heels of the resignation of two other Cain staffers, including the campaign’s New Hampshire coordinator. Expect to hear more about this.
