Retronaut Food

You sit down to figure out the Petraeus scandal, and the next thing you know you haven't blogged in a couple of days.  Who did what now?

Anyway, on to more pleasant things.  Lately I have been enjoying getting the Retronaut emails because old photos of odd and interesting things from ye olden times have been far more enlightening and delightful than CNN's headline news.

from WWII, when donuts were  ... healthier?

1951 Donut Queen Kris Nodland and the Gingerbread Donut Boy
another WWII poster, which frankly contradicts the donut one, if you ask me

Superheroes gardening!
the very first McDonald's in 1948
But of course, you can also find photos of a teenage Morrissey, Robert Smith's wedding, the time Cleveland set a world record in balloons, exotic dancers from the 1890s, David Bowie playing ping pong in a kimono (although all photos of David Bowie are pretty much fascinating), and this are-you-kidding-me pro-draft-dodging poster.


  1. Eating fast food had been the way of life for most Americans since hamburgers and French fries hit the market. It is actually the unsaturated fat from these foods that causes blood pressure to rise and if uncontrolled with medication orders from doctors like cozaar or other anti-hypertensive drugs, varied cardiovascular disease may develop.

  2. Yeah, you're right Megan, I think American should start eating healthy foods cause if not, it'll cause different kind of diseases and dysfunctions in a human's body. It's not bad to eat to fast food chains but they must always take things in moderation, for their own benefit.

  3. Correct, moderation is always the key. Most people think they're healthy because they regularly take vitamins and other food supplements. What they didn't know is that, it should also come with a healthy diet and not the fast food or fatty diet.
