If bread was a gun....rant - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    In lieu of all the recent gun laws and debate, I submit..................
    Facts About Bread
    More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread eaters.
    Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.
    Newborn babies can choke on bread.
    Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 500 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than one minute.
    In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever and influenza ravaged whole nations.
    More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread.
    Bread is made from a substance called "dough." It has been proven that as little as one pound of dough can be used to suffocate a mouse. The average American eats more bread than that in one month!
    Primitive tribal societies that have no bread exhibit a low occurrence of cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and osteoporosis.
    Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey bread-pudding person.
    Most American bread eaters are utterly unable to distinguish between significant scientific fact and meaningless statistical babbling.
    Take Action Now!

    In light of these frightening statistics, we propose the following bread restrictions:
    No sale of bread to minors.
    No advertising of bread within 1000 feet of a school.
    A 300 percent federal tax on all bread to pay for all the societal ills we might associate with bread.
    No animal or human images, nor any primary colors (which may appeal to children) may be used to promote bread usage.
    Limits on the sale of large amounts of bread, no use of bread in public places such as restaurants and sandwich shops.
    Eventually, a total ban on the production, sale and use of bread, Not to mention those that make bread.....

    Join the fight to combat this dangerous substance. Write your representatives today!

    Re: If bread was a gun....rant

    In light of the huge difference of opinions on guns and gun control and the like we should not go any further with that topic. It's a subject close to many hearts on both sides of the debate and nothing good will come of it here on a WFO site. That subject just makes people angry at one another. So lets stay friends and change the subject.
