Greatest Invention Since Sliced Bread

veni vidi vici

Omne quod audimus est opinio, non res. Omnia videm
I've loved pickled beets since my childhood. Regular beets, not so much, though I tolerate them and eat them. The beet salad is only made once a month, but doesn't last many days in the refer.

I had hyper blood pressure. After my Doc said, I'd have to go on blood pressure medicine and for the rest of my life. I said, I can't reduce it by quitting alcohol, exercising and by diet. He said, No you'll be on blood pressure meds the rest of your life, besides most people can't hold to such a regime.

So put myself on the Dash diet that evening. Quite drinking and alcohol, started exercising more and taking two half hour walks a day. My wife also put me on a juicing regime, started making various vegetable and fruit juices specifically for me. The juicing beet greens with apple and celery, which reduced my BP by 35+ within a couple days. Within a month I was maintaining a healthy blood pressure.

Have stuck to healthy diet and exercise since then. Changed my Doc to an ex-Navy Doc four years ago, who was on board with a healthy diet and exercise.

Another benefit of the Dash diet reduces sugar level elevations. One doesn't have to stay on the Dash diet forever. I went from the Dash diet to the Med Diet inside of three months, then to the MIND diet within six months.

Some people are like Slinkies. They're not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
And cause eternal frustration when they get all twisted up, which invariably they will do at some point. Slinkys and people.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and express an unpopular view, something I rarely do here.

Sliced bread is one of the world's best inventions ever and that's that. Without the invention of sliced bread many if the marvel listed above would never exist. Something so simple and useful has given people the time and peace of mind to invent other useful things that sometimes make our lives better, But we all owe it to sliced bread so let give slice bread its due. The glory of the infinite variety of sandwiches. No more bleeding on the loaf when a shar knife slips on a crusty loaf. The ready availability of the perfect slice when you really need it. The portability of just the right amount of bread when you are taking it somewhere for some reason. The ease of creating cute shapes when you are utterly bored. the list goes on and on. Sliced bread has been satisfying and amusing people ever since the first slice came off the loaf. Wouldn't we all rather be sliced bread than dead? Be honest!

And last but not least, one of the best reasons that sliced bread is better than any other invention. It's just so fucking cute when you put it on your dog. I rest my case.
