Interesting Interpretation

Awhile back, Chase snapped this photo when making lunch one day. I liked it so much (probably because I do the same thing) that I set it as my desktop background here at work (tiled across the whole screen).

I had labelled the photo 'Bread Faces,' which I think is a pretty suitable name. To my surprise, though, anytime somebody comments on it, they say 'toast?,' or 'hey, I like your toast!' This has happened probably 7 or 8 times, and everytime it's been called toast...not once has it been called bread.

Yeah, I know, bread IS toast...but is toast bread? Sure, one can say "I'll have my sandwhich on rye bread," and it will come out untoasted. Why? Because, my friends, toast is NOT bread! If I am drinking regular milk, and somebody walks by and says "oooh chocolate milk," I'd find it a bit odd. If, however, I were to be drinking chocolate milk, and someone walks by saying "ooh that milk looks good," I would find that completely logical.

It's the same thing with the bread faces. If the bread was in fact toasted, any description would be acceptable. But, to my knowledge, the bread is in it's simple form, thus "toast" is not acceptable.

Phew...I needed to get that off my chest.

That is all.

I also want to meet these people who put mustard on their toast.

i think you got it backwards

if toast, then bread

if bread, then not necessarily toast.

i have never seen toast that wasn't bread, but I have seen much bread that wasn't toast.

my theory: people see openfaced bread with stuff on it and assume it is toasted... even though the smarter ones look deeper and see that it is NOT. It's all about attention to detail, folks.

I tried your suggestion of putting mustard on my morning's toast today. Needless to say, I'll not be taking cooking advice from you again.

The man who gets angry at the right things and with the right people, and in the right way and at the right time and for the right length of time, is commended.

I say quite deliberately that the Christian religion, as organised in its Churches, has been and still is the principal enemy of moral progress in the world.

Everything is good when it leaves the hands of the Creator; everything degenerates in the hands of man.

I have called this principle, by which each slight variation, if useful, is preserved, by the term Natural Selection.

One declaims endlessly against the passions; one imputes all of man's suffering to them. One forgets that they are also the source of all his pleasures.

The liberty of the individual must be thus far limited; he must not make himself a nuisance to other people.

A lot of people now find belief in God immature, and eventually a lot of people may find realism immature.

Use your health, even to the point of wearing it out. That is what it is for. Spend all you have before you die; and do not outlive yourself.

I think part of the appeal of mathematical logic is that the formulas look mysterious - You write backward Es!

The violence in the world comes about because we human beings are forever creating barriers between men who are like us and men who are not like us.

There is no such thing as society....There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first.
