Love fried bologna sandwich & wipe up the butter from the pan with a slice of the bread. Yum
Yeah viennas were good for that fill in/snack, had them camping as well when young.
Its better then what these young ones were getting.
This is somewhat local.
SALISBURY, Md. Three children in Maryland were beaten and reportedly locked up and fed on bread and water, oatmeal and sometimes dog feces, authorities said Wednesday.
Did the Turpins have activated charcoal in the house? If so, it's worth noting that it's also used to absorb foul odours.
Who did this, is it someone on here?
We don't know that info.
It's unlikely unless the Turpin's were into holistic medicine.
That's what I'm wondering. I think that they may have had some better times, mixed with the horrible times. They would not have been able to survive for years like that, with only one small meal of Vienna Sausages, per day. There's hardly any nutrition in Viennas (or SPAM for that matter).
Just...Oh my. I clicked through that to another story of toddlers in makeshift cages. This is what makes me the most distraught about the Turpin case: all of the other kids out there in as bad, or worse, condition, right now.
I do know that malnutrition will cause you to become weak, disoriented, skin discolored, skin easily bruised, create cognitive impairments, and soft bones.
They are unhealthy. We call them "lips, hooves, and ***h0l3s" around here.
Eaten now and then, no problem, eaten daily, not good.
Agreed. A Taco Bell taco, or slice of fast food pizza, and a pop, is not exactly going to keep your nutritional needs up to par.
Just reading all the posts about canned meat makes me go Gah
If this is of any significance though - I just awoke from a much-needed 2.5 hr nap:
The Turpin siblings appeared in a dream at the end.
It was five years from now, the adult siblings successfully completed IT certification and were employed, making good money.
The minor siblings went all back to school and doing well in class.
They all had new clothes, none of which were identical, and the ladies wore tasteful makeup and jewelry.
They were all back on the road of health with good nutrition and healthy foods, not once a year but every single day.
They all spent a lot of time outside and enjoyed it.
Best of all, their emotional and mental health was slowly but surely getting better.
Yeah it was just a dream but hmmmm....
Yumilicious dream :loveyou:
O/T I know a lot of folks who love fried bologna. I love it pickled. I like the Viennas w/crackers, and I probably even have a can now. When I was young, and at home, I'd fix myself big ole bologna sandwiches with all kinds of stuff on them! There was a period of time in my life, after ditching home, that I ate a lot of cheap bologna. After I got on my feet, I just couldn't eat it anymore. :/
Edit: Just checked out the link. WTH is wrong with people?!?!
Thats really, really gross. Especially to read right after eating.
Why does everyone assume the kids were eating a diet rich in Vienna sausages? Maybe DT was addicted to them and ate a few cans every day.
Maybe the kids never tried Vienna sausages.
Until we're given more information, we don't know what the kids ate.
So in an effort to move on from Vienna sausages and fried bologna... does anyone else find it interesting how much money DT had deducted from his checks for life insurance? Sorry if this has been discussed... just trying to steer the convo back to the case.
Sorry bears, farm kid .:blushing:
Someone who was interviewed said they found a huge amount of empty cans in one of the old TX homes. I don't know if that means 50, 500, or 5,000 thousand, though.
If it was like my old place, we could chose it, and they'd just deduct a small amount from the check. His employer may have provided a standard sum, and we could pay more, if we wanted more. Just a guess.
When youre at the point of filing bankruptcy, $175 per pay period isnt chump change. JMO
