Note To Matt Stone aka Body Temp “Guru”: You’re In Short Pants; and, You’re Welcome

Given the history, please forgive the gloating over unintended results. It’s N=1, but I’m anxious to hear of other body temperature measurers for those into that (I’m not, even though I’m clinically HypoT). Here’s the comment from CDXLI—who’s been checking body temperature daily since young Matt Stone was in diapers, or thereabouts. I added a few…Read More

A Valuable Lesson in Just About Everything

I got an email from Nancy Redd this morning. She’s the nice and capable host at Huffington Post Live who did my interview on Friday about not using soap or shampoo for nearly 5 years, now. She emailed to tell me that a clip and writeup had just hit the front page of AOL. Shortly…Read More

Clearing The Air: My Beef With The So-Called “‘Healthy’ Low Carb Lifestyle”

After some months of posting on Resistant Starch and taking pokes here and there at the low-carb & ketogenic crowd, seems it’s drawn enough attention to warrant comment and critique in various places, including comments at my last post: A “LADA” Type II Diabetic Finds “Amazing Results” With Resistant Starch. Probably, this ruffled some feathers, when…Read More

Pope Francis is Modernizing the Catholic Church

Someone asked me to weigh in on this, so what the hell? It’s the religious news item of the day, so I suppose it’s social and culture worthy. Pope Francis: Gays, Abortion Too Much Of Catholic Church’s Obsession.

Late Notice: Huffington Post Live in about an hour or so

I’m on HuffPo Live at 2:30-2:40 PST, add three hours for Eastern etc. Here’s the page: Looks like it’s going to come off, as I’ve already done vid/audio checks with production staff (who are greatly competent, BTW, and with a shout out to Lauren Betesh who gives me hope in youth).

Adding a New Dimension to “Bread Drunk”

This popped onto my radar yesterday: Auto-Brewery Syndrome: Apparently, You Can Make Beer In Your Gut. A 61-year-old man — with a history of home-brewing — stumbled into a Texas emergency room complaining of dizziness. Nurses ran a Breathalyzer test. And sure enough, the man’s blood alcohol concentration was a whopping 0.37 percent, or almost five…Read More

America: Land of the Pathetic, Home of the Pussies

If enduring an hour long fake delay of game last night for a bunch of pampered pussy multi-millionaires afraid of the sight of lightening—but an hour more of programming worthy advert revenue—wasn’t enough…that’s the NPL, the National Pussy League…I have another story just today along the same lines. But first, I have to ask: to…Read More

My BMW X-5: Going Stealth and Zombie Apocalypse

I dearly love my X-5. 110K miles & counting. My previous vehicle was a Hummer. Didn’t fit in the parking space in the lofts we were moving to. At 6″ wider than a Suburban, no go. I’ve also owned a couple of Jeep Grand Cherokees, and so have some experience with after market wheels &…Read More
