Greg-

Please smile and take what I am about to say constructively.


What the fuck kind of idiocy is this? This is why the media feeds us such crap. This is a perfect example of garbage in, garbage out.

I will clarify MY responses at least.

Assuming 3 meals per day/ 21 per week

Assuming "dining out" means purchasing prepared food to be consumed either at home or outside the home (take out Chinese would be "dining out", a sack lunch would be "dining at home"

Assuming that "prepared food" is food that is ready to eat and requires some labor to combine ingredients etc.

1. How many times do you dine out each week? 7
2. How many times do you eat at home each week? 14
3. How many hours are you in class/studying each week? 10
4. How many hours do you work each week? 70
5. Age? 42
6. Gender? Male

For those who aren't in college anymore see if you can remember your college days.

1. How many times do you dine out each week? 15 *
2. How many times do you eat at home each week? 6
3. How many hours are you in class/studying each week? 40
4. How many hours do you work each week? 40
5. Age? 18-25
6. Gender? Male

* I worked in restaurants/hotels in college and most of those "dining out" events consisted of eating at work. Perfect example of how econometric modeling can yield meaningless results and allow clowns to draw meaningless conclusions.
