A Bit of It All On a Saturday

Wednesday morning I spur-of-moment loaded some shit and dogs in the car and headed up to Arnold, CA, where we maintain a vacation rental and for one of a very few weekends over the year, it wasn’t rented out. I had to mail some guy’s clothes he’d left in the dryer back to him when I got here, which I’m happy to do (it happens). Here’s a little 2.5 min tour of where I am,…Read More

Careful Those Who Want You To Fail and Starve Your Microbiome

I literally have almost no time to blog (I’ll blog about that later). For a long while I’ve noted those who do an “experiment” with resistant starch, have any number of initial issues—mostly very low carbers—and proclaim to their audiences that it’s shit. So, go back to starving your carb-addicted gut. Now, I know why they do this: they’re dishonest, biased for a dying paradigm: low carb dieting. Simple. But being dishonest always fucking bites…Read More

Get a Precious Life On

 Go full harp. Make sure you stay for 3:30. This is what I was rocking out to when I decided to toss up another. Just had to share. Go Gregg Rolie....

Maya Angelou: Commie in Service of the Nomenclatura. Who Gives a Fuck She’s at Room Tempurature?

 Thought some of my readers might get belly lafs.       I was prompted to post three Facebook updates: There is one single narrative throughout history more powerful than religion: war. I say do an n=1 experiment dumping both. And… The religion narrative is designed to separate you into flocks of those going to heaven vs those going to hell. The war narrative is designed to separate you by arbitrary borders. In both cases,…Read More

Now That the Self Flagellation Over Dumb Memorials is Over, May I Have Your Attention?

Does anyone actually think for themselves, anymore, in the “Land of the Free?” Or… Regurgitate That’s how I largely view America, now, especially including stupid-shit-flag-waving, nationalist displays like Memorial Day. That capital—earned in WWI and WWII—against no-shit geopolitical crises, was spent a long time ago and people ignorant of history are just pretending like they know something when all they’re doing is (see above photo). I’ll get to how I took in a long weekend…Read More

Roundup: Paleo Magazine Interview; Gut Flora Presentation; No Soap or Shampoo – “Washing with Bacteria”

~ Tim Steel and I did yet another podcast, this time with Tony Federico of Paleo Magazine. In this two-part special episode of paleo Magazine Radio, we’re going to be addressing the subject of resistant starch with Richard Nikoley and Tim Steele. The idea that starch is a beneficial component of our ancestral-focused diet is not new – it’s a concept popularized by Paul Jaminet in his book, The Perfect Health Diet. But the idea…Read More

An Amusing Tale of a Starving Dog and a Mentally Disturbed Neighbor. Rescued, Marvelous, and Loved. But Which One?

What if you just rescued a starving puppy, found in a field? You accepted, took him in, and then three weeks later, the very same people from whom you got him send you a letter threatening to take him away because, after getting over his fear of literally everything, he barks now—finally—and it has irritated a mentally disturbed neighbor? Here’s his mugshot; his booking into the San Jose Animal Care & Services Division, a couple…Read More

The ABC Australia Pulls Catalyst Show On Cholesterol & Statins. So See It While You Still Can.

When I was alerted to this last week my reaction was “it’s a good thing.” It’s always a good thing when the government (no typo) censors something they don’t want you to see. I make no meaningless distinctions between the State, Media, and Mega Business—particularly when it comes to the food and drug multinationals. One in the same, pretending to be different. Hell, there’s isn’t even investigative journalism, anymore. Whether right or wrong, deep investigative…Read More

Charles Richardson Smears a Reddish Tint of Orange on Your Face. A Resistant Starch N=1 With Bloodwork

Oh the hater howls last mid-February, here and everywhere. Gotcha! See, I dared to publish Charles Richardson’s facial before and after, because having seen many of the same over the years, I knew exactly what I was seeing; no shadow of a doubt, and in an instant. Visceral. Hugely reduced inflammation, and where that always seems most remarkable is in the face. Mr. Charles Richardson, 62. See the Original Post Here. Instead of caving to…Read More

Bitcoin Puts the Guy in a Mud Hut in Zimbabwe on Equal Monetary Policy Footing With the Most Coiffed & Suited Zurich Banker

This will perhaps be my last entry on Bitcoin for a while, but as I alluded to in my last post, my chief motivation in this is to get some of my readers—just like Resistant Starch—to say ‘wait, someone who’s given me good advice in the past is onto something, and so I want to know more about that.’ Get it? I’m a “,” but I’m only saying: check it out. Here’s the last two posts:…Read More

Dispensing with Ayn Rand Statism—with its Concrete Bound Mentalities—and Typical Ignorance Regarding Bitcoin

I’m not going to go all bitcoin crazy geek on you, but yesterday, I posted something that only some of my eclectic collection (colleclectiction?) of readers are interested in. However, as is my way, I’m principally interested in engendering particular interests among those who, at any particular time, aren’t particularly interested in the slightest. I’m a persuader, more than I am a dissuader—just because I blog my interests more than my dissinterests. I can see the…Read More

A Quick Primer on Bitcoin

Some time ago I wrote that I would write about it. Unfortunately that hasn’t come to pass and I don’t have the time to delve very deeply into it, but for a few observations. Instead, Jeffrey Tucker (also, his FB) and a few others just did an appearance on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze and basically gave Glenn himself a newbie intro. Both parts are a total of about 15 minutes and well worth watching. Part 1:…Read More

Friday Randomness. Something For Everyone. From AHS14 to Farts, Potty Mouths, Beautiful Anarchy, Doggies and Beyond

While I continue the process with Tim and Dr. Grace Liu (link removed) to create a book that the very most people will want to read worldwide, I’ve had to pull back a bit on blogging, source good commenter and contributor material, and do stuff like this: just a random dump. But, you’re getting maybe the best 5% of everything of the hundreds of things I see daily. ~ Farts are healthy for you. Farting Is…Read More

Oh, Puhleeze Dr. Cordain. Aren’t There Better Things To Do Than Advance Shiite Paleo?

As if there isn’t already enough Devil’s Spawn out there that you can’t touch lest you face judgment and damnation, add marijuana to the list, courtesy of the most notable Shiite Paleo Doctrinal Authority. HABITUAL MARIJUANA USE AND THE PALEO DIET: WHAT A LONG STRANGE TRIP IT’S BEEN I participated on various athletic teams that required regular aerobic workouts, almost year round. Consequently, smoking anything (tobacco or dope) was completely out of the question for…Read More

Outcompete God and Country

 Here’s how you could better grow your one and only life, in my view. Outside the Busybody Box Since 1991, I’ve had this metaphor in my head: outcompete god. On levels, it’s hilarious to me that people pray to a skygod for so many of the things man routinely manages and fixes. To state it another way, while I was intrigued by the New Atheists and read many of the books that came out, I never put…Read More

Random Gut Biome, Resistant Starch, Vivid Dreams and Diabetes Roundup

Shortly, I’m headed out camping for the weekend in the Sacramento River Delta with family, so thought I’d pop up some random things for you to check out over the next couple of days. Let’s begin with notable books. I’ve not read these cover-cover, but skimmed and poked around in them enough to know that 1) they’re worthy reads, and 2) it’s a whole new beginning in terms of books on the gut biome and…Read More

NuSI Founder Dr. Peter Attia and Dr. Oz on Saturated Fat. Oz Admits He’s Been Wrong

I don’t know how you can get any better than this. And Peter was absolutely the best possible spokesman. Dr. Peter Attia and Dr. Oz I know Peter. We’ve chatted on the phone and emailed many times, and when we shared a dinner sometime back in Palo Alto, Peter’s soft spoken communication skills had the husband and wife at the next table so intrigued they were literally bent over to eavesdrop. Eventually, unable to contain…Read More

How Resistant Starch + Dirt Can Fix Problems from Too-Low-Carb Paleo and Know-It-All-Dunning-Kruger Ignorance

An email from a reader this morning. It was very timely because I’d just browsed through these 11 charts again, about everything that’s wrong with modern diets. When I posted it on my Facebook profile, I wrote: A paleo or Primal Diet Completely corrects 11 of 11 of these. Even caloric intake normalizes for most people. This is why it’s the hot diet. It works. Just include your starches please, at a reasonable 30% ish…Read More

The Resistant Starch Revolution in the Swedish LCHF Community

Some years back, everyone following the goings on in the U.S. Low Carb community was made aware of the goings on in Sweden, surrounding the institutional trials and tribulations of Dr. Annika Dahlqvist, reminiscent of what Dr. Robert Atkins encountered in the early 1970s here. Since being vindicated, a rather substantial LC Community has burgeoned in Sweden. One of my readers and commenters is Swedish low carb blogger Per Wikholm, and I asked him to fill…Read More
