Prefer Fat-Laden Food? Genetics Could Be to Blame

If you frequently crave fatty foods, it may not just be a lack of willpower. In fact, it could be genetic.

Research finds people with certain forms of the CD36 gene — which enables animals to both detect and develop preferences for fat — could prefer less-healthy edibles more than those who have other forms of the gene.

Cold Cut Stadium Is What the Super Bowl is All About [IMAGE]

What’s the Super Bowl about, really? Unless you’re a supporter of one of the two teams participating (or have a very large wager on the game) even serious sports fans can get caught up in all the chili-baking, party-attending, big-screen-TV-buying hoopla surrounding this unofficial national holiday.

So that’s why this photo of a skillfully assembled cold cut football stadium probably says more about the Super Bowl and what it has become than any monosyllabic answer the media is going to finally coax out of Patriot coach Bill Belichick this week.

Texas Death Row Inmates Will Not Get Last Meal Request [VIDEOS]

On September 15th 2011 the prison kitchen in Huntsville Texas prepared it's last, last meal for Texas death row inmate Lawrence Brewer, one of the three men convicted of the 1998 dragging death of James Byrd Jr. in Jasper Texas. Before Brewer was executed in the Huntsville Unit, he was given his last meal he requested. It consisted of: two chicken-fried steaks with gravy, a triple meat bacon cheeseburger, egg and cheese omelet with ground beef, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and jalapenos, a bowl of fried okra, one pound of barbecued sliced brisket meat with half a loaf of bread, three fajitas, a meat-lover’s pizza, one pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream Rock Road, some peanut butter fudge and three ice cold root beers. All the food was prepared and delivered to him, however Brewer refused to eat any of it. He was making a mockery of the system. The "last request" so angered State Senator John Whitmire chairman of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee.

West Texas Fair and Rodeo is Back [VIDEO]

It's time again for the 2011 West Texas Fair and Rodeo. From the very moment you set foot in the parking lot at the Taylor County Expo Center fair grounds the sights, sound and that familiar smell of funnel cakes, fajitas, turkey legs, Aggie fries and smoked brisket overwhelms your senses. While Sneak-a-Peek night was a lot slower than I can remember, it was perfect weather, not too cool, not too hot and obviously no rain, there wasn't even so much as a whisk of wind, in the air. The fresh squeezed lemonade was tangy yet tasty sweet and the fajitas were Delicious, now time to take to the rides. While the kiddo rides near the round building were not open on Thursdays Sneak-a-Peek night, we found a couple of race cars the Wheaton and Fernandez kids could have their picture made on.

USDA Plays With The Numbers [VIDEO]

I learned something new today, how to do magic the US governments way. This was "my" initial impression. Here's the scoop, according to a new USDA (US Department of Agriculture) study and website finds that 10% of the country is now in what they labeled, a “food desert”, that's right like the Mojave or Sahara. The Food Desert Locator is an online map that shows areas through out the United States where, the USDA says, low-income families have little or no access to "healthy fresh foods."

But no need to fear because after the USDA discovered this, they show you how they took 10 million people off the "food desert" chart in a short period of time. They do it so well that magician Criss Angel might have missed the slight of hand.
