Alimentary, My Dear Watson…

The culinary curators at This is Why You’re Fat (“Where dreams become heart attacks”) have collected scores of calorie-laden, fat-laced dishes for the reader’s edification… if not, indeed, delectation.  Consider, for example:

The Meatlog

A quarter pound hot dog with cheddar cheese and bacon wrapped in a mixture of beef and sausage.

The Elvis Donut

Peanut butter glazed donut topped with bananas and bacon.

More such delicacies– indeed, enough calories to nourish a small city in Burkina Faso for a couple of months– here.

As we loosen our belts and wonder at too much of a good thing, we might recall that on this date in 1979 the worst accident in the history of the U.S. nuclear power industry began when a pressure valve in the Unit-2 reactor at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania failed to close.
