Race To The Whitehouse 2016; Game of Thrones Version

Oligarchy:  a government in which a small group exercises control especially for corrupt and selfish purposes. Let’s get something out of the way right off the bat. Nobody should be president. It’s a ridiculous notion and given the cheap con that “democracy” always was—and is perhaps finally festering to a boil—I’d just prefer monarchy. At…Read More

Most Of The Dumb Stuff I Saw

Well, it got so dumb that Facebook blocked me from my account for one day earlier in the week, and then for a second time—this a three day suspension—just yesterday afternoon. Violating “community standards.” Oh really? And just whose “community” would that be, and whose standards? It certainly doesn’t violate my community standards. So it’s…Read More

Dangerous Faggot Milo Yiannopoulos Is At Once Gay Folks’ Best Friend, The Left’s Worst Enemy, and Our Next Christopher Hitchens

Well…Once Gay People Understand Their Allies and Enemies, Generally Speaking… I understand Milo on a level that I think is different from average. I’m a shit stirrer by nature. I embrace it. Iconoclasm is what I love most, but I have a spicy conservatism. Misanthropy is my cradle…though it’s focussed. My cynicism is what I…Read More

Type II Diabetes Reversal On 800 Calories Per Day

For Background, a post from early March: LOW-CARB & KETO DIETS ARE GOOD AT MANAGING DIABETES; BUT IS THERE A CURE? The TL;DR is that 800 kcal per day for 6-8 weeks solidly reverses type 2 diabetes in many people, and most people can go on to eating in a sane manner and remain reversed. They did an LC…Read More

Cooking In An Off Grid RV With Plated And Blue Apron

I have zero grid-electricity or water pressure (gravity feed from collection tanks). The Internet is via radio, solar, and batteries. I have to take tanks down to fill the gas; and a guy comes by to empty the shit tank every week. Still, I manage to cook, instead of do what people who live in mansions…Read More

The Whole Fat

Butter and coconut oil are becoming the new sugar. The pendulum swings from one extreme of processed food to another, to other sets of elements that are extracted from whole foods; they’re concentrated, and rendered unrecognizable to the body in terms of evolution where human biomes dealt with foods in whole forms. Am I undercutting…Read More

Just Another Chapter. They End. They Begin.

Living in the elements out of doors a lot can wear on you. Last May, I went to the very Land’s End tip of Baja and lived there until August, outside almost 24/7, even for sleeping (bugs an issue, too). Hot and humid. 90/90. Came back to San Jose, immediately adopted another off-grid living situation, and…Read More

Reconstructing Garlic As A Whole Food

There are a lot of opinions about garlic; I’ve learned. Probably lots of hype, too. It does seem clear that there’s a lot of medicinal value to the stuff, and its use as such appears to go all the way back to ancient Egypt. But what’s hip and what’s hype? What compounds are the ones…Read More

Some Musings on Poor Peasant Diets

Spending all last week at “the cabin,” I figured I’d keep my Rush and Led Zeppelin to my myself, this time. Perhaps I’ll have some food pics, though. But maybe I won’t post them, either. Too peasant. Since I began Potato Hacking recently, I stumbled from potato hack intermittently, to peasant hack most of the rest…Read More
