I can't make out the logo. Where do I get one of those posters?
I stole it from my sister off facebook. I think the logo is "Billy's Custom Gun Works"  Don't think it's an original there, either...

After much searching I believe I have found the original: http://www.somethingofthatilk.com/index.php?id=219

Now we just need to persuade him to make a poster. Or maybe some classy metal signs. Classy, like bacon.

Also note, didn't it say these people ate bacon every day and only had a 29% increase?  Most of us don't eat bacon that much.

Yep.  I don't even recall the last time I ate bacon.  The thing that caught my eye was pancreatic cancer.  I don't know if you've ever known anyone who's had it but it's a particularly nasty form of cancer.

Pancreatic cancer got my dad at age 60 about 11 years ago.  His doctor sent him to the hospital thinking it was a gall bladder problem.  He died 9 days later - only 7 days after being diagnosed.  The doctor told us that only about 5% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive longer than 6 months.

I do my best to do all things in moderation - but we all have to die of something.  If it's bacon that gets me, so be it.
