These 7 “healthy” foods may actually be bad for you


By web gangsta | Published:

When you’re on a diet, you tend to dramatically change your eating habits in order to comply with the menu you’ve put together.

Whether it be South Beach, Atkins, Weight Watchers — every diet requires self-discipline and monitoring, in addition to switching out all the yummy fun sugary carbs with lots of boring vegetables and fruits.

Blech.

Which cities have the worst urban sprawl?


By web gangsta | Published:

Urban sprawl is bad for our health.

Whether it’s because we’re stuck in traffic, trying to get from one side of town to another, or if its a strain on public resources like power and water, cities that are too large can be a big negative in how we live our everyday lives.

Web Watch knows people who live in one part of town who seldom venture beyond a 10 mile radius, being perfectly happy living and working close to where they live. Others, we know, are happy to drive an hour or more to see a movie or eat a casual meal at a restaurant they’ve heard about.

It’s BACON – and it’s KOSHER for Passover!


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody is familiar with what “kosher” food is, right?  You see the little “circle K” or “circle U” on food labels as the indicator of that product meeting certain religious preparation standards.

For example, for the longest time Oreo cookies were never kosher – sweet tooths had to be satisfied by eating Hydrox cookies instead.

Passover, on the other hand, has a more special label and marketing behind it at the supermarket.  That’s where you may see a more elaborate display indicating foods that are “Certified Kosher for Passover” rather than being merely “kosher”.

Kosher for Passover requires the food to be made without ingredients that shouldn’t be eaten during the Passover holiday – this food, like Wonder Bread and cakes and most beers – all contain yeast.  And yeast is apparently evil of evils and must be disposed of before the Passover seder can begin.  All those foods that can’t be eaten during Passover are classified as “chometz”.

But guess what?  Bacon – and we’re talking full-on pork bacon, not that whimpy turkey bacon – can be classified and eaten as “Kosher for Passover”.

What is your favorite number? (Don’t tell us, we already know)


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s a reason that magicians and casinos both can fool you and take your money.

It’s all about the math.  The probability.  The statistics.

It’s about identifying the key common trait that everybody has, but is afraid to admit.  If a magician asks you to pick a card, which card do you always pick?  Do you think of one card, and then immediately switch to some other card (saying to yourself, “aha! they wanted me to pick that first card that came to my head, but I’ll show them”)…. only to find yourself at the end looking directly at the magician presenting you with The Card You Picked!?!?:!

It’s not always luck.

By web gangsta | Published:

It’s been oft-said that the DALLAS COWBOYS are “AMERICA’S TEAM”, at least when it comes to football.

The Atlanta Braves claimed the same title for themselves for their ubiquitousness of games seen nationally on SUPERSTATION TBS back in the day.

The latest food trend: Burgers for Breakfast


By web gangsta | Published:

By now you’ve likely heard about – or maybe even tasted – the latest breakfast fast food star: the WAFFLE TACO from TACO BELL.

Why would Taco Bell try to get into the breakfast market?

Because when it comes to fast food, there is still tremendous growth opportunity there.  McDonald’s is the fast-food breakfast leader by a landslide.  In 2013, McDonald’s brought in $10 billion in breakfast alone.

That’s a lot of Egg McMuffins.  No wonder McDonald’s can afford to give our free coffee as a breakfast promotion – they can certainly afford to do it.

When it comes to the bedroom – lefties have more fun


By web gangsta | Published:

Left-handed people are notoriously clumsy, mainly because they live in a right-hand world and devices aren’t designed with the left-handed person in mind.

Lefties make up about 10% of the world’s population, so it’s only natural that there will be things that just aren’t made to work well for southpaws.

But maybe lefties are having the last laugh.

What cities have the cheapest room service?

Who doesn’t love a little bit of room service?

Chances are, if you’ve stayed at a fancy hotel, you’ve called down for a pizza at night or a made-to-order breakfast for the morning.  Not everyone has the time to head downstairs for the $18 buffett when all you’re looking for is two eggs and some toast.  Why not have it freshly made and at your room so you can eat on your schedule instead of theirs?

Who are the Top Craft Beer Brewing Companies in the US?


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s nothing like sitting out on the back deck with friends and some tunes, firing up a couple of burgers and having an ice-cold beer in your hand.

For some, that means getting a case of Bud Light or Michelob Ultra or Miller Lite and setting it on ice.

For others, they brew up a special batch of their own unnamed brew, then pass along their prodigy like it’s the next thing to sliced bread.

What’s the most popular salad dressing?


By web gangsta | Published:

Did you hear about Cane Rosso in Texas?

He owns a pizzaria – but charges $1000 for a side of ranch dressing.  For some people, ranch dressing is something that should only be served on salads or buffalo wings — but pizza?  Not so much.

It’s almost gotten to the point where ranch dressing is practically becoming more popular than salsa or ketchup as the nation’s most favorite condiment.
