It's still a far better choice then most other restaurants, soy or no soy. I mean what are the alternatives? McDonald, hell fucking no I'd wouldn't touch that crap if my life depended on it. Burger King, Wendy's, Dairy Queen, Arby's, same damn thing as McDonald .

It was a nice choice over all of them and the damn places where I usually have to go to find semi healthy food . Most Chinese joints seem to think grease equals flavour. And while Japanese food was a nice choice sometimes I wanted something that wasn't Japanese.

As for home made stuff sure it's better. But sometimes I simply lack the energy to do my own cooking. Or the inclination to do grocery shopping. I make enough scratch that I can go whole months without spending a second in a supermarket .

And to find out this whole soy business, it's somewhat disheartening. It'd be more but soy is a perfectly acceptable filler . I'll take it over anything else. Especially since this whole soy business seems ..debatable to say the least.

Long story short. I agree. As I said... I would prefer Soy > Pink Slime or Sawdust.

As for the home cooking. Making your own panini takes 5 minutes maximum. For me, that is as low energy as making a can of spaghetti os!

MCD not as bad as you may think. Wendy's actually preety good; remember they started the real beef trend with the "Where's the beef?" ad campaign in 70/80s whenever....

BTW, nice profile pic. Love me kitsunes...


Many thanks on my profile picture. She is quite the fun character from a certain visual novel series. She has quite the expensive taste in alcohol and shares the same humour as I. If you care to know where she is from, I would be happy to help you as your profile age is acceptable.

When it comes to sandwiches, in Subway you are told to make them in 3 minutes or less. It takes like no energy (minus dealing with idiots). Making your own home made sandwich should take no longer than 2 minutes (to 5 if you want to make a panini). Subway, in fast food terms is still pretty good. Unless you go for the Steak and Cheese, Chicken Bacon Ranch, Spicy Italian, Italian BMT/Turkey Italiano. In that case just go to Taco Bell. It isn't much worse.

Don't get me started on the Tuna. My manager didn't make me prep it again after I threw up. Dear god that was worse than unclogging the toilet at the city pool by hand when we had no plunger. Dear god the tuna...

Age on the internet is like truth in politics. It can be true, or it can be a lie.

Yes though, it is a good VN series and I do suggest playing it. Getting it legally is expensive though (100% worth it to import if you can).

I see, so ur saying ur "pretending" to be "23". So many questions...

Indeed, as it looks like this game company is Sapporo based. Guess what other famous anime character franchise from there...........

Yes, but I was there too last August on someone's certain "birthday", of course. So close, yet so far away.

Me knowledge on hentai (Or this case, "H-JRPG") veeeeery limited, unfortunately. There is a ton though, just go to certain sections in Akiba. Hmm, but no matter. I will have to consider this, in due time.

Anyways, appreciate the "education". Alas, still better then talking about worthless Subway, thats for sure...

You're forgetting the amount of time one has to spend in a store shopping for the ingredients, not to mention the time spent in line behind the idiots who insist on all sorts of shit ( everything from pricing to freshness). But really I freely admit after a 11 or 12 hour shift I have just enough willpower and energy to tell a sandwich artist I want an veggie on flat bread or whatever ya know.


...Really putting all the time I spent in earning that Chef certification to work I know right.

I don't eat farm raised animals, I believe only the foolish do. I want meat I hunt it, kill it, and butcher it myself . But really my issue with fast food places is the sheer amount of sodium and cholesterol their meals have .

This is pretty much how I look at it, too. Not to say that I eat Subway all that much; just that the alternatives that could have been in Subway's chicken are significantly more gruesome than the reality.

As for making your own food - I prefer it. I either cook at home or go to a "proper" (not fast food) restaurant with my girlfriend. It varies depending on how much energy there is at the end of the day (the latter generally requires more energy than just making it myself, though).

No, I think he's saying it's easy to put a random age on your profile to be older than the general demographic of a website you're on. Essentially, the logic is "age on the Internet doesn't really matter, at the end of the day, as you or I could either be lying about our ages". I know people who pose as a 40+-year-old person but have next to zero percent of the linguistic capacity that would come from someone at that age range. lol.

---------

On Topic:

It's always a bit "disheartening" when you hear that places are using alternatives in their food to either bulk up the quantity or just to preserve it for a longer period of time. As mentioned already, I'm glad that it's soy versus "pink sludge" or other substances that have more negative (than positive) impact on the body. Yes, soy does have a hormone impact in excess but eating a chicken submarine from Subway won't magically stunt your adrenaline/testosterone output, either.

At the end of the day, it's always going to be healthier to eat something you prepare yourself. I purchase most of my meat from butchers around me, versus chain supermarkets and the likes. Personally, it tastes better but it's mostly about supporting the local farmers than the taste (which could simply be a confirmation bias or otherwise, admittedly). Though, most would say that fresh meat/fish are superior to meat that's been lingering in a store for a few hours (in taste, at least).

I absolutely abhor fast food burgers (McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, etc). I will go to a fast food chain while on a long-winded drive somewhere, just to get it out of the way (to get something in my stomach without adding an additional 40-90 minutes to my "travel time" if I were to go to a dine-in restaurant).

Unless you are alergic to soy this shouldn't even be a problem. Soy is pretty good for you so even if it's half Soy who the hell cares if the end product still tastes good?

If it turned out they were filling their chicken with something bad then I could see a problem. But making a report like this is just trying to throw mud at people for petty reasons.

and that is assuming the claim is even true.

Then where do you exactly eat from, a nightmare like McDonald's? From some really sketchy food truck? From some grease filled death trap of a British style Pub? Or do you live off instant ramen and pizza pops?

Face it mate compared to that a little soy isn't half bad. Hell the stuff is actually good for you. And we've yet to see any proof that this claim of soy filler is actually legit.
