QotD: Cocaine beats Healthy Living 19 to 1

Ask your physician how to feel good, and he’ll look you squarely in the eye and say, ‘Eat right and exercise.’ Yet for every dollar spent in fitness centers, Americans spend nineteen dollars on cocaine.

The reason? Two seconds after you snort cocaine you feel like Superman. Two weeks of diet and exercise just makes you hungry and sore.

Haha awesome.

Ngl, cocaine is a hell of a drug.

But two weeks of binging on cocaine would probably also leave you tired and sore, not to mention broke. (I can honestly say I have never had the desire to attempt this.)

It's true. Eating right and exercising is far less expensive. =-]

And this quote doesn't mention the outcome, say 2 years from now. BIG difference in the opposite direction. But the author's point, I think, was something about the American insistence on immediate gratification. NOW!

Oh yes, I definitely get what he was getting at, and it's very apt.

Although I have a cousin who snorted cocaine throughout most of high school and that bitch is a size 0, haha. ;p

Ha. No fair! I suppose if you're going to burn your reserves like that, you might as well do it when you have plenty of them.
