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

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

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

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,[1] currently director...…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

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
