back to article What’s a computer? Eat yourself fitter!

Despite the saturation of oh-so-hilarious pre-Christmas comedy TV shows summing up the year before it has actually finished, January strikes me as the more logical time to do like Antony Worrall Thompson: have a good look around, take stock and move on.

Re: Holy crap

It's based on sound theory and empirical evidence, but the implementation seems a inherently clumsy. The better way of moderating your eating speed is to alternate mouthfuls with a sip of wine and savour the flavours.

Only a few years back, it would take a French man twenty minutes to eat a MacDonalds meal, whereas it would take an American five minutes. This may have changed in recent years, where obesity is increasing in countries like France and Italy (though still short of the USA and the UK in second place). The body is like a warehosue- if a load of trucks arrive at once and their contents unloaded in a hurry, the warehouse is more likely to get untidy. Surface area is a factor as well, so finely ground wheat forces the body to ramp up insulin production more quickly than it would with more slowly absorbed courser grained cereal.

The only dedicated cutlery in our household is for my 8 month year old nephew for when he visits.

Hang on

You're saying I'm supposed to eat a Big Mac with fine French wine and savour the flavour?

WTF?

Re: Holy crap

Well, it would certainly alter my eating speed if i had to drink wine with my food. I would rush all the faster to get the ordeal over with.

Not sure how a big mac + wine has less calories than a big mac.

Re: Holy crap - The body is like a warehosue

I once saw a .JPG that suggested that this is not always necessarily true.

Hang on - I'll see if I can dig it out for you. I think the filename started with an 'H'...

I think that's just make-up, isn't it?

Eidophor?

Eidophor projectors, with oil films and schlieren optics. Surely someone else remembers them...

The Fall

I admit, I was worried that my suggested headline would be changed by someone unacquainted with The Fall. But we're a cultured crew at The Register, despite our pretence at being yobs.

Re: The Fall

Ah, that The Fall... as seen on the t-shirt of a barman near you. Thought you on about The Fall (2006) for a moment.

Welcome back Dabbsie...

You have been missed.

Actually electrowetting sounds like a great method for curing bed-wetting.
