"Fatty foods affect memory and exercise performance"

Saw this article on slashdot.org (WFS). If you want to get into a heated debate with 1000's of technology nerds, their discussion thread on the article is pretty heated

Re: "Fatty foods affect memory and exercise performance"

I wonder if LSD is considered excersize because you can't get rats to deadlift or do pull ups?

I tried teaching my dog to deadlift, but he has no thumbs. He was sad.

Re: "Fatty foods affect memory and exercise performance"

Where are the studies with more than a couple of days to adapt to a high fat diet?

You have a smart cat. Bacon is awesome. I have scallops and bacon in the fridge. Soon they will meet each other.

Bacon and scallops
Will stomach or taste buds be
Happier. Tough call

I just got an awesome picture in my head of a rat doing LSD. Lysergic acid diethylamide, that is.

Bacon wrapped scallops Just had those about a week ago. You got me craving them again, Jamie. I think I may have to stop by the seafood counter on the way home
