A good piece of chocolate has about 200 calories. As I enjoy two servings per night, and a few more on weekends, I consume 3,500 calories of chocolate in a week, which equals one pound of weight per week.

Therefore...

In the last 3 1/2 years, I have had a chocolate caloric intake of about 180 pounds. I weigh only 165 pounds, so without chocolate, I would have wasted away to nothing about three months ago!

I owe my life to chocolate.


Found this on the net a few years ago & thought I'd share it now :lol: :lol: :lol:

After deep scientific and mathematical debate, I've found that your logic is faultless, Oh Muddy One.

Carry on.

Now I'm confused (obviously due to lack of chocolate!) - I'm reading this thread and posting this reply on Sunday evening - but Green Aura has posted tomorrow morning!!! :? Is chocolate the magical ingredient for time-travel ??

:dontknow: now it's added an hour on me! Have had to go and check the other clocks!

Says 11.21pm on my post and 11.49 on yours - have you checked your computer clock. I don't know if that would affect it. npb :dontknow:

Yep - I'm always an hour ahead or an hour behind. Except during summer, when I can get it right. In winter, no amount of juggling with my world location or the existence or not of Daylight Saving Time will convince this forum that my watch is right. Any other forum, yes - but not this one. I've got used to it.

EDIT: There's magic involved. Having just posted this, I discover that it's been recorded at precisely the right time. Woo-ooo-ooo-ooh!
