Mongo's Mongologues - The FPT Point/Counterpoint Corner

Our friend Mongo spoke to us about doing an anti-junk food post - and we at the FPT like to honor all perspectives, so of course we are happy to do so. The staff here is fond of all varities of foodstuffs from fresh fish to swedish fish.

Mongo Mongologue:

IaM is older than most of our FPT readers, and I have seen many of my friends ravaged by the effects of diabetes. Therefore, this corner of the FPT shall be devoted to anti-junk food. The following pictures show how one (like IaM) can lose 75pounds.

The first picture is a Porterhouse steak. Nothing wrong with some good beef. For our more discerning readers, one will note that one side of the Porterhouse looks strikingly similar to a picture of a New York strip steak that was previously posted to this forum.This is for the reason that a Porterhouse steak is a New York on one side of the bone, and a filet on the other. The best of both worlds!

Do not suspect that IaMongo is a hamma having seen the second photograph. That flower just happened to bloom the day before I put the Porterhouse on the grill. I had to take a photograph.

The third photograph is the Porterhouse on the grill. If you will note, there is aluminum foil underneath the steak. That foil contains a spanish onion, and is a delicious addition to any bbq. To properly cook a spanish onion, simply wrap it in foil and throw it directly into the coals of a bbq. After about forty-five minutes, the onion will be sweet and tender. It's a must-try for our FPT readers. To properly cook a quality cut of beef on a bbq, one must first acquire mesquite coals. The fourth picture shows the results.

In the interest of diabetes prevention, and the prevention of heart disease, we move on to the fifth picture. Instead of french fries or other processed foods, try a California Cucumber Salad a la Mongo. The recipe is stunningly simple. Take one large cucumber. Unlike liberal-whores, we Republicans peel them before putting them in the mixing bowl. Cut the cucumber across the grain and then cut the pieces in half. Take two Roma tomatoes, cut them up length-wise, and throw those little whores into the bowl. Now, most importantly for a California Cucumber Salad a la Mongo, one takes three green onions and chops them into relatively large pieces.

I prefer to get my green onions at Vons because they are invariably high quality. But, one may substitute green onions from a BT market. One then mixes these ingredients. Having done so, we then add one small avacado. Cut it length-wise and add the pieces by hand to avoid damaging the beauty of this wonderful fruit. Now is the time to spice-up this little thang. Go to Vons and buy their house-brand Olive Oil Balsalmic Dressing. Apply generously. Garnish with four Pepperonchini peppers. To finish this California delight, one must dust this salad with cracked black pepper. Voila. Cucumber salad a la Mongo!

Brand New Gateway PC SX2800-03 Windows Vista Home 64bit with SP1 Intel Core2 Quad Q8200 4gigs of DDR3 for RAM Intel GMA X4500 Intergrated video (vga and hdmi outputs) 640 gig My friend just got this pc for Christmas. They were installing softwares. They must have downloaded a crappy software to get this error. The last software they installed and all the problems started after the install was iTunes. Probaly didn't get it directly from Apple and got it from another fake website or something. OR maybe he may have visited an adult site and gotten the trojan/virus. Heck I don't know cause the dang thing wont boot up. Here's what I've tried so far.... 1. changed bios settings to boot only from hd. 2. tried booting into safe mode, it'll restart cause it'll get stuck right at cscdisk.dll 3. tried booting to last known good config 4. tried the "Launch Startup Repair"... that tried to repair but went straight to BSOD after 10min. I don't even get a chance to get to the windows logo before it BSOD. Here is the error message: A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen. etc.... ***STOP: 0x00000ED (0XFFFFFA8004245CC0, 0XFFFFFFFFC0000185, 0X0000000000000000, 0X0000000000000000) [url=]santoramaa[/url]
