Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
Just learning about this stuff. In short Bacon is good for you, however the Nitrates/nitrites they put in it might not be. I say might because it looks like the information is based on very old studies that are somewhat questionable. Nitrates/nitrites are put in pretty much any preserved meats (bacon, bologna, liverwurst, sausage, hot dogs, etc). They tried to outlaw them but failed when the meat producers rallied. They aren't really necessary in a modern age of refrigeration but make the meat stay red instead of turning brown. They are associated with certain cancers and other problems. However the next big group of foods with both of them in it are VEGTABLES. Their in the fertilizer everyone uses so their in the vegetables we all eat.
So there's Bacon you can get that says right on it "NITRATE/NITRITE FREE". But guess what, look at the label and it probably says Celery juice or Celery powder added. It might even not say it and just say "natural flavorings" because you can describe celery as a natural flavoring. Now why on earth would someone put celery into bacon? To give it that crisp garden taste? No, because the celery contains a whole bunch of nitrates/nitrites. So you're screwed if you do, screwed if you don't. If you pay $6 for a half-pound of bacon, your double screwed. Might as well buy the cheap stuff with their nitrates/nitrites up front.
I think the main point on the nitrate/nitrite thing to remember is that too much of a good thing is no longer a good thing. Don't eat only preserved meat. Spread it out a little. I have two slices of bacon with my breakfast and occasional liverwurst sandwiches and the odd couple hotdogs.
