How to Beat up Anything

By Bob on May 6, 2009 6:00 AM

Ok, I'll admit to owning at least one copy of the "Worst Case Scenario" handbook. I mean, c'mon you never know when you'll need to get out of quicksand and an alligator is swimming towards you. 

The How to Beat up Anything (www.howtobeatupanything.com) site, however, leaves the Worst Case guys in the dust (sorry fellows, love your work but there's a new sheriff in town).  Want to know which weapon to choose if you're ever thrown into the Roman Coliseum and have to fight to the death?  How-to-beat-up-anything will tell you (spoiler alert - DON'T CHOOSE THE WEIGHTED NET). 

What if you find yourself fighting Mark Wahlberg and a T-Rex?  The How-to-beat-up-anything guys have you covered on this one, too.  Ditto, how to beat up someone from Delaware, singer Aimee Mann and (my favorite) how to beat up a Trojan horse.

It's all funny stuff and (at least partially) serious.  As for that tip on how to get out of quicksand?  Email bob@boomerbrief.com and I'll tell you how to do it.  I don't think the Worst Case guys would mind me passing along that important information.  Seriously dude, this could save your life some day.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
