Considering Getting More Politically Active In This Election Season; Notes On The Democrat Debate

I’m a bit behind so far, though. Just now watched the Democrat Debate (no, I don’t use “Democratic” as adjective in that context…There are Democrats and Republicans…Democrat Debate and Republican Debate). Still taking notes, but here’s the best assemblage of clips so far. We need to get very serious about this election…. Click below to…...

Everybody Has a “‘License’ to Kill.” Nobody Ought Have a “License” to Murder

I should not have to explain the title, but let me give it a sentence. A killing isn’t necessarily a murder. Got it? Here’s a murder, and apparently, Seneca Police Lt. Mark Tiller has a big enough license to murder as to make James Bond blush. Don’t recall seeing him killing young adolescents in any of……...

Ditch The Butter and Flat Top To Make a Patty Melt That Won’t Be a Boat Anchor in Your Stomach

Ever had one of those cafe/diner patty melts that makes you wish you hadn’t? First of all, it’s supposed to be—or should be—a modest marriage of ground meat and cheese on both sides. How do they always ruin it? With either butter or cooking oil, then they have it swim there, soaking up as much……...

Sunday Church For Human Animals: You’re Still Using Slavery Arguments; You’re Using Free Market Arguments to Advocate Collectivism; Obamacare Co-Ops Fail… Hundreds of Thousands Face Federal Fines; The Diminishing Cult Of Loren Cordain “Paleo”

~ For nearly 25 years now I’ve loosely used human slavery as a reference or analogy to what exists now in terms of statism, because I would prefer that people get a brain and dump all allegiance to all states worldwide. But it’s imperfect, and I always use it tongue in cheek because I hate……...

Weight Loss From a Potato Only Diet: Re-Hacking The Potato Hack, Outdoor Grill Barbecue Style

Paging Tim “Tatertot” Steele. My what a ride it’s been. Remember, Nov, 2012? Actually, I’m quite sure it was in comments on previous posts where Tim—who now has his own Vegetable Pharm—introduced the idea of bouts of eating potatoes only in comments. …And since he was doing it only in comments, I took it to……...

The Elixa Probiotic Experiment Concludes; Waiting For Gut Test Data

The roughly 5-week Elixa Probiotic experiment is complete and all that’s left now is to get the data from the nine separate gut-bug tests (stool samples), 6 of which we’re submitted to uBiome, and 3 to AmGut. To recap, I first took a uBiome sample about a week before starting the course, then both a……...

What If You Dropped The Silly Notion of Borders?

Artificial borders, drawn with crayon or colored pencils on paper that serves as your meta-metaphor, making precisions beyond plain continental drift (we’re land animals) is really silly on Kindergarten proportions. I won’t belabor how fucktarded you are. Thank me later. Why does everyone agitate over borders? No, REALLY, why does everyone agitate over borders? Money….…...

Grils: I Luv Ya Sincerely, But The “Men’s Right” Movement Is Just As Enabling As…

Real women are the salivation of all men. The converse it true too, of course. If it were not not for women and the children they bear for us dudes, “civilization” would amount to a global pub with comfy chairs for “gaming.” Want to be warm? OK, I’ll be right there (creates a power plant……...

Let’s Try This. Since Most People Cops Kill Deserve It, What About The Dog Pets They Kill Every Day?

I don’t think I’ve ever blogged about this explicitly in a single post, though I’ve been aware of it even before Radley Balko of The Agitator blog (now Washington Post) wrote this in 2006: They Always Shoot the Dog. Apparently, people who think that perhaps the government acted properly in invading and burning down a house of……...

Let’s Unpack A To-Be-Published Gluten Sensitivity Study Touted To Vindicate Dr. William Davis and Wheat Belly

You folks really need to try harder.

I do like Bill Davis and have had some nice exchanges with him going way back and most importantly, he was very friendly to the revolutionary work Tim Steele and I did here on Resistant Starch. I got notice of a post on a new study a couple of days ago that strikes me as a bit bright eyed.

Here's the study. In fairness, it's not yet published and so might be different in the final.

Wheat gluten intake increases weight gain and adiposity associated with reduced thermogenesis and energy expenditure in an animal model of obesity

Abstract

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES. The association between gluten and body weight is inconsistent. Previously, we showed that a gluten-free diet reduces weight gain without changing food intake in mice fed high-fat diets. In the present study, we investigated the effects of gluten intake on fat metabolism, thermogenesis and energy expenditure in mice fed a standard or high-fat diet.

Doubled Keep-It-Up Capacity; No Little Blue Pill

Just quick and just for fun. In the space of a couple of hours, doubled my power capacity just today, as the sun gets lower and the days grown shorter—even though, this is, after all, California. The electricians, engineers, smart DIY folks, etc., will immediately recognize that as a 4, 6v deep cycle wet cell……...

Global Warming Hysteria Has Always Been Bullshit Because CO2 Is Not Nuclear Fission

Iron Fortification, Disease, and Obesity: An Update with Data Refinements

Why does fortified food so strongly correlate with poor health and obesity in developed countries? After our 6,000 word post hashing out the possibilities, we thought it was time to simplify the message. Quite simply it’s because fortification promotes an imbalance of micronutrients that would otherwise not happen when consuming a diet of whole foods….…...

Prime Time TV Used To Speak to Smart People Sometimes

Obviously, it didn’t work, since almost nobody can philosophically and consistent to principles, beat his or her way out of a paper sack.

Is The Gut Microbiome a Better Puzzle Piece Contributing to Mass Killings Than Feminism?

Let’s not mince words, which is always great way to start. Famed smart and witty queer, Milo Yiannopoulos, weighs in on the recent incident where an adult male—this time—goes postal at a school, again. I might be a raging homo, but I still innately understand the male need to conquer, crush and win. Men need to express that dark, powerful……...
