Forestry workers in danger

 

Forestry workers are 15 times more likely to be harmed at work than the average worker - but from what?

 

I'm guessing that it's most likely stinging nettles.

My Mainland cheese says it has 50% less salt. So is that …

 

50% less than it used to have? Hell, people, were you trying to poison me before?
50% less than your CEO sprinkles on his peas?
50% less than it takes to slime a slug?
50% less than Roman soldiers were paid?
50% less than the amount required to kill me? See above.
50% less than it takes to catch a bird?
50% less than you would like to rub in my wound?
50% less than Abimelech used to sow Shechem with?

 

If there is 50% less now, then there was 50% more before. That is a lot of salt. At least half as much. Am I being cheated?

 

I want my salt back.

Rikkitic: If there is 50% less now, then there was 50% more before.

 

There was 100% more before.

 

If you had 100 "units" of salt before, removing 50% took you down to 50 units. Adding 50% would only take you back up to 75 units.

Paper cuts obviously.  Really big paper they play with.

I often get this type of thing from the NZ Herald.

The short description is totally irrelevant or not related to the headline. Like this.

Up there with Steinlager Pure.

 

The implication being that any other version of Steinlager...isn't pure...

Lies. As a child, I would not have eaten one thing in that lunch box. Neither would I do so now.

Same with New! Improved! I have been waiting all my life for packaging that says Old! Unimproved! If I ever see one I will buy it, no matter what it is.

The lager one is interesting though.

 

Steinlager Contaminated?

 

Steinlager Dirty?

 

Steinlager Impure?

 

 

 

The opposites of the Pure branding are all very unpleasant. Why would you do that to your label?!

I always endeavour to purchase full salt / full fat products.

 

I want my money's worth. Even worse, there are products that cost more BECAUSE they are less salt / less fat.

 

WTF ? Paying more for less ?

 

Besides, most "less salt/ less fat" food products are front loaded with sugar.





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government
