How did wealthy people back then not get fat when they ate 11 course meals? ELEVEN COURSES!
holy fuck....no one cares
because they didn't sit on their asses and post on computers all day.
You're so angry since you had a couple of failed threads. Check back in when you fail every day here like I do, you big giant baby.
Yeah but they weren't out chopping wood, either. These were the elite.
This is a book? How was it?
Really good. It's a little bit of back story about how people socialized and dined in Edwardian times, and then recipes that the passengers actually ate the night the ship sunk.
maybe it wasn't really an iceberg and it sank because of all the fatties and their 11 course meals??? :
Taft was president at the time, and he was really fat. They had to buy a special bath tub.
King Edward was a huge fatso, too.
The book says that everyone back then -- at least the people who could afford it -- were big eaters and bigger drinkers.
And Molly Brown was on that ship and she was pretty thick. So I reject the op's original inquiry as invalid.
One really interesting thing from the book was how the Titanic was one of the first ships where the poor people didn't have to bring their own cutlery and food to eat on the way across the ocean. They actually fed them.
have you ever listened to the album 'last dance on the titanic' by the late Harry Chapin?
People keep talking about how no one until today was fat, though. It's driving me crazy.
Astor's wife probably stayed trim by purging over the side of the boat after dinner.
Is that the theme song for CHiPS?
Pitched Internet Warfare has chiseled our beloved Robert of Trawr.
sadly, Harry Chapin was killed in a highway accident however.
"Mah boy was just like me..."
because fine dining is in small portions
