    Ain't science grand!

    It's what comes of wanting so desperately to be relevant.  So everyone puts on a somber face and behaves as if knowledge about caloric content has some major relevance in trying to bring world-wide obesity under control [despite it only making about a 2-4 lb difference]. 

    The irony is, in having this kind of discussion when fully 1/6 [or so] of the world's population doesn't actually have enough to eat.
