Saturday Fun: World Travel; Italy and the Cinque Terre

It’s been nearly two years now since we took a trip internationally. Far too long. It’s not in the making this summer—so far, anyway—so I thought I’d review the last trip, July 2010. It’s for myself to relive it a bit, but also for those readers who weren’t around at that time, perhaps to inspire…Read More

Brief Update: The Book, Version 2.0

I almost wrote a post last evening just so I could write something for fun. But I was a bit sapped—which continues into today—so I ate a big bowl of my father-in-law’s caldo de res instead. Now, finally, the editors get it back for a couple days before it reverts to me. What’s Version 2.0?…Read More

Man Alive! Chapter 5: The Greatest Love of All

Here’s the post that kicked it all off. This is chapter 5 of 12, to give interested readers the chance to take on the free ebook chapter by chapter over the weekend, debate it amongst themselves, or even challenge the author who’s keeping tabs. ~~~ From: Man Alive! A survival manual for the human mind.…Read More

World’s Best Multivitamin Dietary Supplement?

Universal’s Uni-Liver Well here we go, two posts about bovine liver, back-to-back. Ha, well, it’s Saturday, so the rules are substantially loosened. And I make the rules anyway. But this liver post is different. It’s about liver supplements. Some week back I was actually wondering if there was any such thing as, like y’know, desiccated…Read More

Focus on Nutrients: Beef Liver Ideas and Alternatives

I’m big on beef liver. For one, it makes a lot of evolutionary sense in terms of using as much from a kill as possible. Second, if you learn to like it I think you may find yourself surprised at how regular doses (it is nature’s multi-vitamin) uplift your spirits. Nothing like topping up on…Read More

My Hunter-Gatherer Social Experiment With Facebook

I’ve long written on this blog along these lines: we evolved to account for the values and actions of about 30 other individuals. The corollary: at that level, each individual has a real potential to influence the collective action of the entire group, should it be important enough to undertake. And the general social corollary is…Read More

A Gnollish Meal and Discussion with J. Stanton

Yes, there was the interview. That was the morning after these photos, that Beatrice snapped candidly over dinner. I myself was so absorbed, that I didn’t even know about them until I updated her computer shit this afternoon and found them on her iPhone. Listen J, Points Come Together. J…VAGINAS…Come Together! Whaaaat? Here, J, Eat…Read More

The Very Gnollish J. Stanton Interview on Everything

How many of the 600 or so attendees to AHS11 at UCLA weren’t shocked by the appearance of J. Stanton? …Mohawk? Long! ….Why? …We did covered Gnolls in the interview. Spotted Hyena based creatures that, if it could talk to humans—as they non-magiacally can in The Noll Credo—would almost certainly find us less repulsive if…Read More

Here’s the post that kicked it all off. This is chapter 3 of 12, to give interested readers the chance to take on the free ebook chapter by chapter over the weekend, debate it amongst themselves, or even challenge the author who’s keeping tabs. ~~~ From: Man Alive!

The Culture of Obesity

Having lived and traveled in Europe, the so-called Mediterranean Diet (not the faux Mediterranean Diet) has never mystified me. It’s not a diet at all. It’s a culture, and when you live there, travel there a lot, you’ll understand. Here, Let a reader whom I’ll call ‘M’, explain. ~~~ I truly enjoy your no BS…Read More
