Thou shalt not

consume 7 grams of salt, for that is not the right number. Nor shall thou intake 8 grams of salt, or even 9, because that is right out of the question. Thou shalt count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, for that is the proper amount of salt thou shalt intake. Do not stop at 5, for that is not enough.

Ok people, thats my lame attempt to recreate a famous movie scene. Any guesses?

Interesting site. Of course, you've already lost some

of the hardcore here because the site admits the existence of ''J: a writer who used Yahweh/Jehovah as the divine name.''

Most of it I've seen before, though the Egyptian connection was new. Book of the Dead, I've been told, was just that, so then how would those laws have affected the living left behind?

One difference I find significant is the last of The Ten.
Ex 20:17: ''Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ***, nor anything that is thy neighbor's.''

How do you detect envy? What CSI evidence does it leave behind? If non-detectable, then a mere human Solon would be foolish to include the prohibition. Sooner or later his adherents would start to drift away. It makes sense only if the Observer is permanent, all-seeing (or with many spy angels!), and is willing to help with those who are at the beginning of a deadly chain described succinctly by James.

Jas 1:14 ''but each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown brings forth death.''
The other points as well are covered by specific scriptures. The Book still gets my vote as best guide to life.

Again, don't forget the Law was about 600 items, but the first ten are certainly noteworthy in themselves. Not required for Christians, though. Look out! Here come the flames!!

Funny movie with Dudley Moore, Laraine Newman, Dom DeLouise, Madeline Kahn, Richard Pryor. Sounds like it could have come from this movie.

Either I did a really bad job mimicking this movie, or it isn't as popular as I thought it was...

So, the final hint is-
The movie was made by a famous British comedy troupe.

well, according to wife
by jonah jones / March 22, 2006 10:36 PM PST

(she's the closest to a professional cook i could find), 6g is what we in england called a tea spoon....

of course we could argue how much salt is there in a tea spoon?

i think it would be fair to say that if you counted the salt in the bread biscuits chips beer pickles roast beef coleslaw bacon BBQ (generic) you had last weekend, we would be amazed

Ever try it? I'm supposably on a low sodium (salt) diet for CHF. Intake is not supposed to over 2000 per day or the 2400 as your article mentions. Now, try and stay within that range. Everything you buy in the store or eat in a restuarant is loaded with sodium. Look at the packaging someday. One frozen dinner like stoffers is 1200 plus.
And try to find low or no sodium food. It cost more and tastes like crap. I think the average intake of 5000 is low. More like 7000 if you think about what you eat in the course of a day.
