51. I can't believe the amount of excuses this thread has brought up.
But, if you want to take a few years off your life while eating that garbage, that's fine too, it's a semi-free country you know.

The reason I bring it up, is that I used to to eat fast food all the time, and I too used the same horseshit excuses I see on this thread right now. I'm tired, I'm busy, I don't like to do dishes, blah blah blah....

Well, guess what? I had a checkup a couple of years ago, and found my cholesterol was over three hundred, and was in the beginning stages of three arterial blockages in my heart. I was also told it was not if I was going to have a heart attack, but WHEN. Let's just suffice to say, that my attitude got adjusted, and those excuses got tossed rather quickly. I have not set foot in a fast food place since then, and made time in my schedule for taking care of myself. Now I drive by a fast food place, and it just flat out disgusts me because I see what people are doing to themselves.

Hey, but go ahead, keep bullshitting yourselves, and making these fucking places rich. Maybe they will pay for your tombstone after you collapse at the age of 45 while clutching your chests...
