Gee HFT, could the crickets between BLM's posts be because you blocked half the forum?

Naw, couldn't be that

Well it is fairly high. But not really any higher than a lot of other high-carb things we eat.

Holy crap I eat potatoes all the time. I also read an article on the new frappacino and thought the sugar was high just because they said it was. I guess I can skip some potatoes here and there and have one. It looks pretty good!

"For a short time only, Starbucks is offering Unicorn Frappacinos. These might be of more interest to sexy SLS readers if they didn't tip the scales at nearly one and a half ounces of sugar - 39 grams to be exact. "

This is not directed at you, Current, but rather the people who are treating this like some sort of appalling revelation (such as Food Boob).

People have absolutely no fucking idea what they are eating in spite of the gobs of ever growing information available to them. They get their "information" mostly from "outrage" stories like this, which are quickly becoming the worst way to learn anything, and bullshit, often self-styled "nutrition experts".

A tall (i.e. small) java chip frappuchino is already 47 grams of sugar.

A "king size" Snickers bar has 56 grams of sugar.

A cup of pineapple juice has 32 grams of sugar. And, no - the sugar in pineapple juice is not somehow magically better for you than the sugar in a frappuchino.

A large baked potato has about 50 grams of starch in it, which is - ta da - *sugar* about 15 minutes after you eat it. The glycemic index of a baked potato (at 85) is actually higher than sugar (sucrose - at 65).

i.e. eating 50 grams of carbs from a baked potato impacts your blood sugar more rapidly than 50 grams of sugar from outright candy. People do not understand that starch is - from a nutritional standpoint - SUGAR.

As a scientist I (and almost every scientist I know) am just exhausted by the grotesque misunderstanding and misinformation, even among people who should be experts, like MDs, nutritionists, etc. But I have not yet given up, no matter how much of an asshole or know-nothing other people think I am.

Russian bombers intercepted 35 miles off the Alaskan coast. This seems to have much more to do with Russian and American Presidential politics than anything militarily related. I mean seriously bombers? WTF is this, 1952?

I didn't notice. That pic's been on our profile since Jan 2016 and someone noticed it just this week.
