On Bread
« on: July 21, 2018, 12:54:29 PM »

I guess the Mess Hall is as good a place as any for this:

The eating of bread has now been dated back to the paleo (diet) era. I found it interesting, and when you think about it, it kinda makes sense. Why grow wheat (or the ancestors of wheat), then say, "Hey, lets try and make something we'll call "bread" out of this stuff!" It would seem more logical to have somehow discovered that some wild plant could be made into 'bread", then say, "Hey, lets create agriculture so we can grow bread ingredients all in one place and make it easier to eat sammiches."  :laugh:

Good. If you won't eat bread or meat, there's no point to eating. You should therefore eat nothing, and die.

Bread.
Beer is sometimes described as liquid bread but bread isn't described as solid beer.

I'll take a Reuben, toasted, with extra mustard and a cold Michelob Amber, please.
