    I once got severely ill at a Holiday Inn restaurant within 5 minutes of eating a hamburger. I was ill for several days -- puking and the other end. It was a board meeting and strangely this was an extra hamburger no one ordered. No one else got sick. It was a taxidermy board meeting and have to wonder if someone in the kitchen was an animal rights activist or something.
    Half eaten salads are mild to what I saw. You may have gotten a bad burger but you may also have gotten a virus from somewhere else as well. But what ruined me was a joke the morning cook played on the young attractive afternoon waitress; the deep fried mouse in tempura batter with the mouse trap still attached, on a bed of lettuce, tomatoe and fries on the side. See stuff like that for a few years and I think it'll ruin anyone.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Man that's disgusting.

    As far as a virus, I wasn't aware virus's worked that quickly. From what little microbiology and pathology training I have it's the bacterial pathogens that move the swiftest.

    I find this hard to believe if it truly is evening dining. Even the retired folks in my area probably dine out once a week at the most. I wasn't area people had this kind of extra money during the present state of the economy.

    Perhaps my region of the country is different than the rest?
    It's funny...I eat out 3 times a week but I don't eat out for lunch or breakfast very often. The five meals I consume at work, I take with me every day. However, I dine out in the evenings pretty often just because I dont feel like doing much by the end of my day. Once a week, my other half and I eat at this Korean BBQ together, sort of like our date night. I usually dine out with a close friend at least once a week at one of two places. We always eat out on Friday and Saturday just because we are already out and about. Sunday it's usually something light and easy since we are normally out that day too. I guess it's just a lifestyle thing.
