My manwich!  
This website is a rather amusing account of the creation, and subsequent eating, of an 8500 calorie manwich.
This mutha is huge.

However, my first impression was the fact that it takes an amazingly geeky mind to decide to use a Gamecube to indicate scale.

Does anyone know how to force hypertext links to display with a line under them?
It really annoys me when I cleverly insert links directly into the body of my entries, but they are lost by the fact that most people's friends pages (and my own LJ style) don't distinguish links from normal text. For example, there is a hypertext link in the previous sentence, but most people wouldn't have spotted it.

EDIT: I'm an idiot.

Both on this page and my my friendslist, the links appear as blue text. It's less obvious on this page, because of the pale blue background, but I can still see it. Unfortunately I don't know how to add underlines.

That's one hell of a sandwich. My mouth aches thinking about it. I guess that's why he sliced it...

The meat content alone is a frightening prospect:

8 sausages
8 hamburgers
125g of chicken

Then there's the half a kilo of cheese and butter.

I only realised when I went back to show Michael tonight that it was CALORIES, not Kilojoules. 8500 kj is about the recommended daily intake for an active adult male, I think. So this sandwich is about 4 times what you're sposed to eat in a whole day (I have a vague notion that 100calories is 400 odd kj)

That's insane. I'm surprised he wasn't sick...

Well, he ate it over 2 days, so it's not that bad.

Wasn't it some one night, and then the rest for breakfast? Might have been two different days, but the same 24 hour period..

Your Earth logic is superior to my Alien logic.

If you use <u> and </u> it should underline the text like so.

The combination of two different HTML tags was just far too complex a solution for my little brain.

*slaps forehead*

I'm sure there are a whole host of other clever ways to do it, but I like to stick with the simplest ones. It's why I've never managed to really grasp CSS.

I did. Hooray for my layout I guess. No underlines but the link text is in a much more obviously different colour.
ephant on September 23rd, 2004 08:24 pm (UTC)
ok well there are underlines *now*

LJ is so easily abusable in that you can edit a post without having to make it obvious that it has been edited.

So I can make a commenter look stupid by changing what the original post said, so that their comment makes no sense, or whatever.

Thus justifying quoting.
Jacob: portraityak_boy on September 23rd, 2004 08:25 pm (UTC)
That's the problem though. A lot, if not most, of the layouts don't have a different colour for links.

Anyway, the solution was so simple that I missed it.
