Why Does Karl Denninger Lie Like That?
The only real value of this post is to point out that the actions of the subject thingy motivated Tim Steele to put together some excellent information on sodium, potassium, and the balance thereof, vis-a-vis The Potato Diet. Otherwise, it’s just a damn chore that I ought just ignore. Here’s Tim’s post: Mr. Potatohacker: Thank You! Feel……...Read More
The Potato Diet Practicalities: Dropping Big Weight Fast With High Energy and Without Hunger
First things first. Here’s a search link to find all the potato diet posts and thousands of comments from a few years back. That’s for ‘potato hack,’ what we were usually calling it. Here’s one for ‘potato diet‘ too. Lottsa stuff. This post is the 3rd in the series that began with Can Eating Mashed Potatoes……...Read More
I’ve Dropped 13 Pounds In Four Days With No Hunger Or Cravings And I’m Going To Tell You Precisely How
I was in such disbelief when I weighed in on the same Balance Beam Scale I weighed in on Sunday at the gym that I stepped on and off it, checking everything three times, and made sure it balanced at 0. Yep, indeed. Thirteen pounds since this time Sunday, four days ago. Never have I……...Read More
The Yuge Explanation of the Uniquely American Trump Phenomenon
I’ve been burnt out lately on the current events stuff I was to be posting about, and so have re-focussed more on food stuff lately, which I’m enjoying far more, truth be told. Perhaps I’ll do some sort of current bullshit roundup post every Sunday or something, just to keep some ideas and analysis flowing……...Read More
Why Am I “Attacking” The Low-Carb and Paleo Diets?
I’ve most recently put up yet another couple of posts that many perceive as me attacking the Low-Carbohydrate Diet, The Ketogenic Diet, and The Paleo Diet. A Mild Critique of the Low-Carb-Diet Encouragement to Add Fat Can Eating Mashed Potatoes With Your Meals Cause You To Eat 30-40% Fewer Calories? I suppose you could say……...Read More
Can Eating Mashed Potatoes With Your Meals Cause You To Eat 30-40% Fewer Calories?
I’ve had renewed interest in “The Potato Hack“ lately, emerging here just over three years ago, producing a bunch of posts and comments once Tim “Tatertot” Steele brought it to my attention. He’ll soon have a book out, specifically on The Potato Diet, or “Hack,” as we like to call it. I’ve skimmed through his draft and offered a few suggestions….…...Read More
Apple Invented a New Kind of Shovel Where You Can Carry Around Your Buried Treasure
I’ve been thoroughly disappointed with all I’ve seen about Tim Cook, Apple CEO, defying a court order to code a workaround for the iPhone 5c left by our bro & sis native-immigant hybrid bombers in San Bernardino. Both ways. It frustrates me when people do not extract, identify, understand, and then argue from essentials. Like,……...Read More
The Elixa Probiotics Manufacturer Explains How You the Customer Created Version 2
It was about a year ago that Karl, through some miracle from heaven, chose me to help promote his burgeoning probiotics manufacturing business. It’s been a cool success, with well over 1,000 orders so far. The very, very important thing is that Karl Seddon is himself the manufacturer. The importance of this critical distinction cannot be overstated….…...Read More
A Mild Critique of the Low-Carb-Diet Encouragement to Add Fat
Please understand right off the bat that I am not an enemy of low-carbohydrate dieting as a lifestyle. And even for myself, on average, I’d put it in the moderate carbohydrate category. Even Atkins, the modern pioneer, allowed up to 120 grams of carbohydrate—if I recall my 1991 reading of The Revolution correctly. That’s right. If it works……...Read More
Michael Mann’s Man-Made Global Warming Hockey Stick Just Became More Important Than Ever
My best friend ever used that Hockey Stick in his second book, even featured the graph. This was in 2005. On the other hand, Michael Mann, inventor of the hockey stick, has very serious problems. Him, I don’t know. He’s easy to hate and loath. Wikipedia: Michael E. Mann (born 1965) is an American climatologist and geophysicist, currently director……...Read More
Democrat and Republican Elite Phone Lines On Fire
Before I give my own little pathetic blurb, please do consider reading Mark Steyn for your election coverage. If you have smatterings of hopes or well wishes for me and my well being, then it’s only because you’d probably like what and how Steyn writes, so check it out so you can know that. It’s……...Read More
Da Rections! Da Rections!
Cue midget in white suit, John Kerry similarly outfitted, presiding, to usher in your nightmares and lessons. The Iowa deal is rather hilarious. Bunch of cauc-us-es. What if they made iPhones instead of grew corn in order to get your money in order to make your car perform worse, and create higher corn prices for……...Read More
Short & Sweet Super Bowl Notes
I do like football, even though the 49ers suck because of woefully stupid owners who have ambitions such that they’re willing to fuck a team and its fans in order to give ultimate impressions that they have a clue as to what they’re doing in terms of being a winning football team. They make lots……...Read More
Muslim Menace: We’re All “Racists;” and, According To a Tunisian Politician, Muslim Culture is a Parasitic Blight
Just a couple of short videos amongst many things I read and watched over the week. The first is by Paul Weston, a British politician and blogger. Paul Martin Laurence Weston (born 1965) is a British politician, chairman of Liberty GB and parliamentary candidate. An activist and blogger, Weston joined the UK Independence Party (UKIP) in 2010 and stood as a……...Read More
Vegetable Oils and Obesity: Dr. Michael Eades Connects A Very Insightful Dot
Mike Eades’ latest post is: Will the new Dietary Guidelines make us even fatter? Read it. When I saw the feed notice of it, I figured oh, another food policy post. I’ll check it out later. After the years of saturated fat and cholesterol battles with various low-fat and vegetarian zealots, food policy is just one of……...Read More
Are Robb Wolf and Chris Kresser Dealing With Confounding Facts?
This won’t take long. That’s the beauty of confounding falsification in the Poperian tradition of science. Unfortunately, most people are suckers for an endless stream of confirmation of bias, and if the perpetrators never bring up confounders, ignore, or hide falsifications, then they get to ride a gravy train of adulation. So, I’m wondering. Let’s begin……...Read More
Will The Muslim Menace Wake Up Western Europe?
“I studied the Koran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though……...Read More
