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

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

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,[1] 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

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
