She Blinded Me With Science

Far for being a Luddite, I do love some of the implications being raised in the previous comment thread about the implications of science qua science. After all, we already know that many studies are corrupted, and even relate in abstract in a way that the full text doesn’t really support (because so many only read abstracts). I’ll go out on a limb and contend that human animals have been engaging in science for thousands…Read More

Contrast: Squeaking Pips vs Value Producers and Promoters

Warning: This post is vulgarity free. Read at your own risk. For sure, lots of folks are miffed at me in various ways (see comments). Understandable. See, I have this quirky thing about me where I tend to overlook errors, even lots of errors when, on balance—in my exclusive judgment—the balance sheet is in the black. We have this thing called a paleo, primal, evfit, caveman, ancestral movement where, dang it, and in spite of all of…Read More

Steve Cooksey Sues the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition in Federal Court: 1st Amendment; Free Speech

While controversy rages in my Paleo circles owing to individual values, choices, assessments, allegiances, bias—and who you’d rather get drunk with—let’s take time away from the window breakers (ref: Bastiat) to highlight and celebrate someone who has never done anything but try to help average folks who don’t read PubMed or medical journals, and don’t really care much whether the science is all in, good or bad. Their lives are at stake. They care mostly…Read More

I Guess James Krieger Wants to Fuck With Me. Let’s Go, James.

My identical comments at his identical postings here (awaiting moderation) and here. I have to draft another post for the morning, 9:30 am EST, and it has to publish precisely to military precision and when you see it, you’ll understand why. So, you’ll have to read Fuckface Keieger’s stupid post yourself, where he tries to impress you with his stock trading prowess by means of overwrought, non-sequitur and just plain stupid analogy. …Which is no surprise,…Read More

First Cryo-Therapy Session. Sub-300 degrees below zero F for 3 minutes

Here’s what the thing looks like. Torture Chamber Not really. It’s so surprisingly easy to do. and Tore Gustafsson from Sweden says he treats people in their 80s. My initial reaction? Drugs are overrated. I still like my cold water dips of course. This is simply another tool in the toolbox. I’m about 30 minutes out of the chamber and continue to have just an aura of well being that seems to even be increasing.…Read More

A Quick Note on CT Science & Tweaking: I’m going -300 F

 Tomorrow by this time, I’ll have gone into the chamber of cold death. Just talked to the guy at Viking CryoTherapy in Los Gatos, CA. He has a facility within about 5 minutes from me. A commenter hooked me up. We talked a while about my background with things, and he agreed to hook me up with the max. -300 degrees fahrenheit, somewhere between 2.5 and 3 minutes in the gauntlet. Liquid nitrogen fueled. I’m…Read More

Additional Secrets of the Universe: Paleoish Corn Dogs

Don’t you just love corn dogs? While “femmes importantes” are now setting their sites on the “sins” of the great Robert Lustig…because, hey, that’s what happens when you have no value to add to anyone, pretending instead you offer value by tearing down value…I’m off on a different track, and will continue to do so. It was fun engaging the cunt while it lasted…. Onward. Right across the street and on the corner opposite the…Read More

Fried Egg “Sandwich” Tacos

If you dind’t have fried egg sandwiches as a kid, I’m sorry to say that you will probably never, ever be up to the task of understanding all the Secrets of the Universe. It’s simply a prerequisite. …White bread, mayo on both slices spread liberally so as to ooze, an egg fried in butter—yolk broken and flipped—a dash of salt and lots of finely ground black pepper, left to cool down to warm, a slice…Read More

Can Gay or Effeminate Males be Masculine?

There’s an implicit contradiction in the title, on purpose. If you’re friends with a good number of gay males, as I have been for a long time, you know they run the gamut from “queens” to very masculine, and everything in-between. Sometimes, they can turn it on and off, just like anybody behaves different ways according to circumstances. But naturally effeminate males might not be gay at all. See the “weirdness?” My wife and I…Read More

News: You Read the Blog of a low level narcissist/sociopathic abuser

I’m not sure this book review qualifies, but here it is. Food & Nutrition, purportedly, the “Magazine of the World’s Largest Organization of Food and Nutrition Professionals.” Evidently, they haven’t gotten the memo that they’re not only total fucking failures over 40 years or so, but have likely morphed into the Magazine of the World’s Largest Organization of Pimps & Whores for Advertiser Dollars.“ Reviewed by Melissa Joy Dobbins, MS, RD, LDN, CDE Claims: The…Read More

Man Alive! Chapter 1: You’re in this all alone.

I was pretty pleased with the discussion thread in comments last week when I first posted about this: Man Alive! A Survival Manual For the Human Mind. Because of that, I thought it would be a reasonable thing to do over the next 12 weeks is to put it up chapter by chapter, every Saturday morning, and hash it out over the weekend for those interested. It could be fun and educational. Minds might even be…Read More

No Guru: Cold Thermogenesis, Therapy, Exercise Recovery, or Just Exercise?

Before I get started, just a quick plug about my book. I’m not sure the exact sales so far, but it’s somewhere around 5,000, and a good portion of that is to new folks, which was the whole point for me. My promotion for “buy a copy and give away 5 for free” is still running. Could end any time I want, but I don’t want yet. Instead, for this weekend, I’ve lowered the price…Read More

Dr. Jack Kruse, Neurosurgeon, is a Big Effing Liar

Now I know I was admonished over and over. For months. By “People.” Many…”People.” Now, mind you: everyone lies. Really. But I’ve always been the sort to dismiss so-called “white lies,” and hyperbole. Moreover, I sit as my own judge in determining for myself whether any particular lie rises to my own standard of outrage—because everyone should have their own standard of outrage. Let’s take progress pics, mine included: tan, suck in the gut a…Read More

Free the Animal Book Trailer – 2nd Try

Thanks to all the helpful input I got from the 1st try at this, I put together a new one. Short & sweet at 1:15. So sometime this week my publisher will be kicking off a special promotion for the book, for which sales are still remarkably going very well—in spite of the odd silly review on amazon....

Guest Post by Sean Abbott: Stranger in A No Longer Quite So Strange Land

A couple of weeks ago I had a fucking brilliant idea. That was after I was thinking about commenters who add so much value around here. I wondered to myself, how can I repay them, beyond just engaging as much in comments as time allows? Once I asked the question the answer seemed too obvious: give the best ones center stage now and then. Sean Abbott at Prague Stepchild was an easy first on the…Read More

Man Alive! A Survival Manual For the Human Mind.

I read this free 75-page ebook in the space of a few hours Sunday before last and knew immediately that I wanted to feature it here. It’s one of the most interesting and unique liberty, individualist, egoist, anti-autharitorian (of all kinds) books I’ve ever read—and I’ve read a lot of them. It’s not only about thinking for yourself, but for yourself. …As in, something the author, Greg Swann, terms Self Adoration, which is the name…Read More

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”

Mommy, he called me a name! Long before we all became a bunch of stupid cunts feigning “hurt,” that was the idiomatic wisdom. I’m sure I must’ve heard it first from my mom; and I remember it, misogynist that I am. But I’ll get to that, later. Because I’m not puerile, I have no problem shooting a link to anyone I’m highlighting, like Evelyn Kocur over at Carb Sane-Asylum. But Angry Dick Nickoley is on it!…Read More

Dr. Jack Kruse Booted from Carnival 2012 Low Carb Cruise

Yesterday afternoon I got wind of the story. Here’s one. A Nashville neurosurgeon was escorted off a Carnival Cruise Line ship Sunday after a post on Twitter led authorities to believe the doctor was planning a bioterrorist attack. The tweet appeared to come from Dr. Jack Kruse and made it seem as though he was in possession of a vial of harmful bacteria. Posted on Sunday morning, the tweet read, “Security confiscated dynamite. talk won’t…Read More

Putting it All Together: Moderate Carb Paleo, Resistance Training & Kettlebells, Intermittent Fasting and Cold Thermogenesis

This is the post I was planning on drafting for last Monday when disaster struck, and I simply decided immediately to put everything off for a week that I was doing and had planned. Cold Thermogenesis I’ll start at the end, since it’s the newest thing. A month or so ago I first began to blog about Cold Thermogenesis (CT), followed it up with another, and then just shy of a month ago, renewed my own…Read More

What Would Jorge Do?

Thursday afternoon, I finally managed to get myself up off my weeping, pathetic ass and write the post about my cousin I’d been contemplating over whiskey and cigarettes for four days. I was going to be having dinner that evening with Steve, his brother, a hi-powered LA lawyer (complex business litigation, usually defending companies from lottery-seeking parasites), and his mom—with whom I’d spent a few hours on Monday morning in the aftermath. I just had…Read More
