Vegan Lies and their Stick Figure People

A mixed bag of dishonesty and fraud You’ve seen me poke fun at the monkey enviers before — though monkeys don’t have bananas delivered by the truckload — and this shall be no exception.

I have zero time for Paleo hand-wringers

That’s very flattering, and a nice post. And yea, I’m well aware that I’m the bad guy for some, or many. I’ve also yet to see a single of my detractors accomplish much of anything in spreading the word. I, on the other hand, had 184,000 visits and 340,000 page views to my blog last……...

Ancestral Health Symposium

The organizers of the Ancestral Health Symposium sure have done an amazing job putting together the "Woodstock of Evolutionary Medicine." When I was first approached way, way back when, I was more than a little skeptical. But looks like they’ve pulled it off. That’s quite a list of luminaries in the paleo, Primal and Evolutionary Fitness…

Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS): Can Your Mind Really Heal Your Back, Neck, Shoulder, Butt, and Leg Pain?

Perhaps it can, if that’s part of the cause I did’t expect to do another self-indulgent post on my neck & shoulder troubles. So I’m doing this because I think it might be my last or second to last post, once I report full recovery — and just as importantly, might give a clue as……...

Is it Time to Draw Attention to the “Weak Leans”?

I’ve had this nag for a long time. Back when I was 20-something and living in Japan, I had visible abs. Not when I showed up — too many pizzas in college saw to that — but gradually, over some months as I ate more and more on the Japanese economy and when at sea……...

This is One Big Ass Pain in the Neck!

My neck Only, not really so much my neck. You might recall a couple weeks back I blogged about having an impinged rotator cuff. Symptoms all made sense and here’s the confounding variable part: I was doing workouts that included heavy sets of exercises well known to cause shoulder injury. But how easy it is……...

Hey Skechers: How About FOOT “Technology”

Today is not a particularly good day, nor have I had one in a while. I’m not sure there even would be a good day to get an email like this. It’s from a female of the human species, in case you find that meaningful (though I don’t). Hi Richard, I really enjoy your take……...

Idle Fun at the Expense of Vegan Morons

Seems Melissa has a project. Posted from here. Get a load and take note. Any of you Paleos ever exhibit this level of abject dumb ass moron, I’m outta here.

11. And The Vegetables Shall Know Their Place Throughout the Land; as Shall They Know Their Master: Meat

A Year of Free the Animal Visitor Statistics in Review

Stoking the Flames of Revolution: Fine Young Paleos

I was very pleased to see the enthusiasm over Calvin’s self-experimentation and ultimate astounding success as passed along in my post yesterday.
