His Blood pressure was 123 over 72 or pre hypertensive. Pretty young for that. Must be the limey diet.
That or just being near a Wal Mart raises your blood pressure.
Animby, if it’s really hot in your house (mid summer Texas type heat) then eggs will keep longer in the fridge. You know, two week type of thing.
You’re right. Eggs in the fridge are kind of pointless.
#19 It is the only way. But you have to know they’re fresh and for me, the only way to know that is to take it myself (or someone I know) from the nest.
And indeed, if you fully cook an egg you take care of that. Good luck when you eat it pouched or do any kind of self-made “energy” drink for exercise.
#20 Indeed. Sadly, there’s no way you can be sure of that in a big city
#21 Normal blood pressure for adults could go to 130-80 with a normal of 120-80. No problems there.
Our eggs in UK are bought from shops and supermarkets fresh, not refrigerated.
The eggs are fine left in a cool place, we don’t get the sweltering temperatures that you get.
My brother wont refrigerate his eggs, he is adamant that it alters the taste.
Just a thought on eggs…
Eggs have a natural coating which wards off bacteria and other baddies however, here in the US the FDA insists that all eggs be washed/sanitized prior to sell and this removes the protective coating and makes it necessary to store them in a refrigerator. The phrase “unintended consequences”
comes to mind.
I am not an egg expert (Eggspert?) nor do I play one on TV.
The goggles thing looks familiar especially with the hair thing.
Then it dawned on me…
From digimon cartoon.
yeah..the “Silly Skill Game” fits them..I noticed it was for ages 6 and above though. They will have to wait 2 years or so before they can play :’))
I hate it when foreigners come to America and visit the worst places in order to confirm their own smug sense of cultural superiority.
I’ve eaten a lot of food in England. Ours is generally better than theirs… but you won’t find that at Walmart.
That’s it, next year’s family vacation will be at a Walmart in the US.
GregAllen. You hate it? Really? Thats a strong emotion.
I have no idea who these guys are.
The video is quite harmless. View it with with the notion that it is a bit of light hearted international humour. Look at the brits laughing at our shop. Look at us laughing at the brits.
When a brit visits USA its kind of weird in that it is all very familiar but it is hilarious to see something quirky, like tea (v. important to brits and historically kept in a special ornate box called a tea caddy) now being sold in gallon size packaging associated with auto consumables. That is funny to a brit. The fact that brits find it funny should be funny to a yank. The fact that yanks find that funny is also funny to a brit. And so on. Those long winter nights just fade away. Whats to hate here? Be grateful the whole world has not homogenised into one pork-n-cheese loaf experience.
The future is bleak if everything a foreigner might say is viewed as an attack and something to raise hatred.
So do I hate it when foreigners come to England and visit the worst places in order to confirm their own smug sense of culinary superiority?
I’ve eaten a lot of food in America. Ours is generally better than theirs… but you won’t find that at Asda or Tesco or Stonehenge tour.
They didn’t mention “people of walmart”. 2 skinny UK kids astonished at the sheer size of the average walmart shopper.
#30–andy==good review of the cultural exchange. Greg is very well world traveled, I’m surprised he posted as he did. Must be tired and his good christian helmet slipped off a bit.
Greg, is everything going ok for your right now? No kiddies in hospital as the Brits would say? I hope so.
My own travels are just as andy says: humor at the small differences, appreciation for the best of what both cultures provide: I want it all. Have to travel to get it though.
# 21 McCullough said, “His Blood pressure was 123 over 72 or pre hypertensive.”
Yes, it IS pre-hypertensive. VERY pre-hypertensive. Some might even say it was -egad- normal.
Never too young to be normal…
I thought aviator-goggle kid was cute. He looked like he was up for a game of Quiddich.
#26 – I noticed the goggles too.
If you wear goggles you are either a Japanese cartoon character, or less than 8 years old, or an idiot.
I think Liam fits the “idiot” category.
andycatus and Bobbo,
I have a lot of personal baggage on this issue, having been condescended to by I don’t know how many non-Americans.
One thing they do is go to America’s WORST places to prove their point — and then they tell ME about it!
I NEVER EVER do that to other people’s countries. It’s just rude.
I’ve been to some pretty hell-holish places but I can always find something good to say about their culture.
I’m not saying all foreigners are like that — but it’s quite a few and the British are some of the worst.
# 36 GregAllen “…the British are some of the worst.”
Oh, Greg. So true. So True. And I was MARRIED to a Brit!
Such a silly pair of Brits but so many amusing comments on here.. =)
I will mention one thing.. Does anyone else hate the one-billion gigawatts of unnatural florescent lighting in these stores.. and the throngs of zombies in most Wal-Mart stores?
Maybe I’m just allergic to florescent lighting AND zombies. Could be.
I haven’t been on here in a while… and now you are starting to sound like me with my rantings..
Did you join the Sons of Liberty while I was gone?
