Default The Long John Silvers Paradox

Every 4 to 5 months I get these uncontrollable cravings for Long John Silvers fish planks covered in malt vinegar. I'm not talking one or two planks, Ill usually eat 5 or 6. Then even before leaving the establishment ill start to feel it......the belly ache, the starchy film in my mouth, and risky ride home before a bout of almost certain diarrhea. The easy fix is to not eat there again ever. Right?

But every 4 or 5 months will pass and I find myself doing it all over again. Is this just me? Does anyone else understand this paradox?

It's about once a year for me. But I don't get chorro because I don't eat that nasty poor excuse for coleslaw. But I do get that shame that I shouldn't eat that junk. But it goes hard while I'm eating it.

Yes yes and more yes... but like Full Draw its about 1 or 2 time a year. I try to ignore it, but it simply won't go away until its been satisfied.

I'm convinced that the filmy substance that coats your mouth is time release crack... that slowly absorbs in your body. Once it has finally left, your body requires another dosing...

I can't say that I agree with you on the LJS paradox. Myself and some co-workers visited Long John Silvers a few weeks ago and I still feel a little uneasy in the stomach when someone mentions the place. This trip was my first in about 10 years and I am pretty certain I can easily make it another 10 years before I get the courage to try it again.

I understand completely...I swear they put drugs in their food b/c even though I haven't eaten there in a few years I still get crazy cravings every 3 or 4 months to go there and eat one of their fish plank combos In the end I convince myself that it's better that I NOT eat the fish soaked in 10W30 lol

I start feeling sick just looking at that picture of the crap they serve. I haven't eaten at Long John Silvers since the 80s, and I don't ever plan to make that mistake again. For the life of me, I can't figure out how they stay in business. Disgusting.

I had this exact conversation with my wife last night and I do the same thing, but about once a year. Don't have the gastro trouble fortunately..... or unfortunately. Maybe that'd cure me.

I'm the same way with Taco Bell. Despite the 100% predictable outcome of feeling sick to my stomach and disgusted with myself for putting whatever the hell that crap is in my body, about twice a year I just have to remind myself why I don't eat there.

Insanity, doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results.

I rarely eat at LJS, and there is a LJS/Taco Bell combo just 2 blocks from my house. When I do, I make a stack of about 10 napkins on the table, put the fish on them, then put about 10 more napkins on top. I press down and squeeze all the grease I can out of the fish before eating it. The grease that comes out will soak through all the napkins. That helps with the slime left in your mouth. I also only eat there a couple of time a year.

Used to be a LJS on Villa Maria in Bryan that I went to weekly back during college. That was 35 years ago and I don't remember eating at one since. This got me to thinking about trying it again. And if you went thru the drive-thru they always forgot to give you cole slaw.

I eat the fish and chicken dinner with extra crunchies. If you let the crunchies get cold and eat them you will get that greasy funk in your mouth. I eat the coleslaw and love it. It has never made me sick but I do try to avoid it because all of the grease.

That long john silvers chicken, or whatever it is, is great. I can tear that stuff up. Then it hits me a few hours later. Then about 6 months later I'll do it all over again. Too good to not have at least a couple times a year.
