Are we keeping you awake Ted?

Or are you napping after having consumed some of Colorado's "Rocky Mountain High"?

Nope. I was just over in the FF sub-sub-sub-(gotta get REAL deep here)-forums, watching all the arguments for and against "crop factor" and equivalence". I got to laughing too hard, and was feeling worn out, so I came over here for a quick pick-me-up, but nothing was going on. So I fell asleep.

The satire equivalence on the FF threads is similar to this thread. The main difference it that almost everyone over there is trolling. Here we are suffering from surplice of beer and bacon.

That may be the solution to declining enrollment at those conservative religious congregations; surplices made of beer-soaked bacon for the support crew.

Maybe then, they would benefit from some of the excess of bacon and beer here. Let's ship 'em some!

Oh wait. Maybe only the bacon. Wouldn't want to waste good beer for mere "cropped equivalence factor".

Yes, we tend to take a more subtle approach here.

And generally our demeanor is more "polite".

Surplice?

We are treading dangerously close to forbidden territory here . . . . . . . aren't we?

A beer soaked surplice made of bacon might get them to "let their hair down" after Sunday services.

And could help to keep the livE hociR at bay!

Surplice = liturgical garment

Surplus = too much of something

Steve = dyslexic fingers

With Satire in the discussion, I was expecting some Sinclair Lewis in the mix, maybe an analysis of Arrowsmith.

yet more dyslexic fingers...

Arrowsmith == Sinclair Lewis novel (1925, earned him a Pulitzer prize, which he declined...)

Aerosmith == a rock band of some renown

neither would likely buy a K3

Next time you're over there, just randomly drop in one of these factoids and listen quietly for little popping noises as ther craniums explode:

Average length of a bacon strip: 6 inches. Inches in a foot: 12. So lets call it 2 bacon strips a foot.There are 5280 Feet in a mile. That means there are 10,560 strips of bacon per mile. On Average, 15% of the weight of a top hog is bacon worthy. An average top hog weight is 265 pounds. That means there are about 40 pounds of bacon per hog. (39.75, I rounded). An average strip of bacon weighs roughly 1oz. On average there are 16 regularly sliced strips of bacon in 1 pound. This means there are 640 strips of luscious bacon per hog. Average Circumference of the earth: 25,000 miles 264,000,000 Strips of bacon laid end to end would circle the earth. if we divided this number by 640, we find that 412,500 hogs would supply the bacon. If we divide 25,000 (earths circumference) by 3.14 we find that the earths diameter is around 7961 miles. Divide this by 2 and we have 3980 miles as our radius. It would take 42,038,216 strips of bacon to extend from our molten core, to earths crust. On average, an American eats bacon 13 times per year. Lets say they eat an average of 3 strips each time. On average, Americans eat 39 strips of bacon a year. If we multiply this number by the current US population we get 11,858,329,236 bacon strips are eaten per year in the US. If we divide this by our bacon earth circumference, we find that the United States eats its way around the earth in bacon 44.19 times a year.
Every week, Americans eat enough bacon strips to circle the earth.
