What, don't you enjoy getting 1000%* of the sodium you really need per fish?

* As I have not actually researched this fact I am not liable for you sounding stupid by quoting it to someone who has done their research

I'm going to rant how rants don't really need walls of text, just words with a lot of syllabes.

1 Anchovies filet has about 150mg of Sodium. And we need about 1.5 grams of Sodium per day. So really, get your facts straight. Dude.

I once ordered a sausage pizza for delivery. It came with anchovies only. I heavily considered suicide until I called them and they replaced it for free.

Anchovies CAN be used in cooking if the saltiness is complimentary. More often than not though, anchovies overpower any other flavour, and thus make it totally disgusting.
I think raw oysters are worse though. The first time I tried those I realised why so many girls prefer to spit than swallow.

I once bought Anchovies wrapped around olives.
I love olives.
I love fish.

I never tried anchovies.... until that moment...

Why have wall of text when you can have a wall of amps?

When the media tells us the economy is sluggish or failing... I feel they are calling middle-America lazy.

What's middle-America? I never heard that expression before. Do you mean middle-class Americans? If so, isn't it true that they're lazy?

He meant middle-class, and no, we aren't lazy. Middle-class working families are unarguably the backbone of this country.

When I hear and read things like this, I become mildly irritated because it shows a fundamental lack of understanding of economics.

And when I read things like this, I laugh. Not because its funny, but because it reminds me that we're not alone in our ability to paint millions of people with but a single stroke of a brush, causing great confusion, hatred and an odd superiority complex backed by nothing but the legend that exists only in their mind. Slightly disappointing.

I'm sorry if I came across generalizing. I was aiming to get a thorough debunking of the claim, I wasn't making a point.
