Holy Heart Attack, Batman

Apparently, when people started hearing rumours about the KFC Double-Down—a chicken sandwich where the bread is made of chicken, and the filling is made of bacon—the powers that be weren’t kidding around.

Now, lemme tell you something. Once upon a time, I tried a delicacy from Wendy’s that they affectionately called the Baconator, a monster of a sandwich that hit your stomach (and your arteries) as hard as Ahnuld would have hit an opposing flunky back in the day.

The Baconator was really good. If I were an athlete, I’ll bet you anything that I would have been able to use every single calorie in that burger with no trouble at all.  But I’m no athlete, and I felt the hugeness of that burger eight hours after I finished eating it.

It was humongous, and it knew how to make its presence felt.

Now, here comes KFC with the Double-Down. Check the picture to see just how mouth-wateringly lethal this sandwich is:

Doesn’t it look deadly? There’s supposed to be a grilled version, but I’m not too sure if local stores will carry those (I’m not even sure if local stores will even carry the item, really).

Now, it has less calories than most of the other big burgers out there (less than the Angry Whopper, definitely), so it might not actually be that bad for you, even if you’re no athlete. But the salt content is enough to put your kidneys on a fix. I think that when I do try to eat this, I’ll be chewing on it for half a day, then revert back to a purely vegetable-based diet (or if worse comes to worst, steamed fish-based) for the rest of the day just to make up for the salt.

Maynilad Water Chronicles: The Clusterf$%#, Part 2

This is the third post in our Maynilad Water chronicles. This time, we will talk about just how inept their record keeping skills are in the face of a massive overhaul in a given area. This involves a technique used by Meralco in high-risk areas called clustering, and is efficient – if utilized correctly. Needless to say, Maynilad has yet to be able to do this.

The Furious Muse in the Room Upstairs (part 3)

This is a story in progress. I will post it in chunks, for the next few weeks, as I complete it. A warning: this tale is definitely not for children, so parental advisory is advised. Or don’t let your kids read this. At all. Story begins after the jump.

Today's Philippines...

...is the worst. Everybody's suddenly an expert in politics, and suddenly the lines just have  to be drawn. You're either a Dutertard, or you're not. If you're pro-Duterte, you're a horrible person who doesn't care one bit about human rights. If you're anti, you're an unpatriotic yellowtard. How the flying fuck did we come to this? Just how divided, how deeply wounded are we as a country, that we can't be civilized in the way we approach the criticism of the other side? And why can there be no middle ground? I understand just how bad the government's recent actions are - and it isn't even past Digong's first 100 days yet! There's absolutely no excuse for how he's behaving - katokayo Martin, if you're reading this, take note - and seriously, there's only so much spin you can put on a story until it comes back full circle. Get somebody up there to slap your boss before he says something stupid again, he's making the godda…
