"For Every Minute You are Angry You Lose Sixty Seconds of Happiness." Emerson

On the internet tubes I found this awesome chart that displays 20 things that happen in a minute, but one particular statistic on the chart stood out to me far above any of the others:

"Every minute 120,673 pounds of edible food is thrown away in the united states..."

Jeepers! I hope that none of that food is chocolate cake!!

I'm sure much of it is in fact chocolate cake!

I think it's mostly coleslaw and soggy pickles.

It's mostly veggies Dr. Zed. Don't worry. I won't let them throw away your chocolate cake!
Never. :D

For every minute you are happy you lose sixty seconds of making fun of Emerson.

Or martinis. No one throws away martinis, right?!

Heck, Doolittle only needed thirty seconds over Tokyo to change the course of the war.

Surely it was not ice cream!

Not chocolate cake and Martinis! That's two of the most important food groups for bloggers.

Remember that there are starving apes in China.

Kelly the little black dog: Ack! Don't say a thing like that, even in jest! :o(

Übermilf: Coleslaw and soggy pickles? Well, that's OK then! ;o)

Sunshine: Yay! Thank you, Laura! ;o)

Randal Graves: Leave it to you to miss the point entirely. We are talking about the needless destruction of chocolate cake, ferchrisakes! ;o)

GETkristiLOVE: Ack! Who would throw away a helpless alcoholic beverage? I ask you! ;o)

Teresita: Doolittle didn't change the course of the war - but his raid was of great psychological advantage, both at home and abroad. ;o)

Susan: Hostess Ding Dongs? Bah! Oh, wait, those are pretty good, actually! ;o)

Sue J: Ice cream! That would be a monumental tragedy as well... ;o)

Tengrain: Yes! Chocolate cake and Martinis! That and... No, that's about it. ;o)

Comrade Kevin: Starving apes in China? Probably out to steal our jobs! ;o)

I bet school cafeterias account for about half of that figure. I subbed for the lunch monitor at my kids' school the other day and I'd venture to say the average child ate 50% of the food on his or her plate (and I can assure you, not one single piece of chocolate cake was harmed in the making of this comment, dear Dr.).
