I imagine he says NaCl is explosive because in excess it causes swelling and bursting of cells.

You know Africa is connected to Europe by land, right?

You also know that, in the out of africa theory, homo heidelbergensis split in two - sapiens and neanderthalensis, and Neanderthalensis was already in europe before sapiens got there?

You also know that Australophithecus Afarensis, the precursor to homo in the out of Africa theory, was white?

"Especially when is is 100% grass fed and grass finished."


I don't see any spell/typo there..

Although.. If the game included the social side of life one wouldn't feel the need to advance nearly as much. But it's not social people who make the technological advancements  :)

...Play Minecraft in Survival mode.


When you start out you spawn in a random place in a sandbox(humungous and where everything is interactive) world made up of blocks of different stuff - grass, dirt, wood/leaves(trees), water, lava, cobble, sand, ores, etc... You have no weapons, no home, no tools, no food, no map, no clock... You have to hunt for your food or you get hungry and your health doesn't regenerate, and every night there's a load of shit that wants to kill you. If you die you lose all of your stuff and respawn in the same place as before.

The more you advance, the less you die and the more interesting stuff there is to do.

a) Evidence of cooking is non-existent past 300,000 years or so. Past that point, evidence is extremely rare and seen as being inconclusive. So, cooking is highly unlikely to have influenced human evolution re bigger brains.

c) For someone to claim that humans are fully adapted to cooked foods they would have to prove that we are all somehow immune to the heat-created toxins in cooked foods or that we needed to eat some of those toxins in order to stay alive. A scientific impossibility, and one that Wrangham can't get round.

a) Homo Sapiens are only estimated to have been around for 200,000 years

c) Why would we have to be fully adapted? We could just have become more adapted to cooked than to raw..

Iguana, WOW... Did you have bad results before you got this nice yeast? Like some growth that tasted bad? Or was it just nothing and then this yeast?

Does your fridge have a fan or anything special?

I thought fruitarian meant you could eat anything that doesn't cost something its life. So a fruitarian could eat fruits, seeds, milk, honey, nuts etc as long as they weren't killing what they got it from. They could even eat carrion.

But if they caused the death of the animal, took so much honey or milk they they hurt the bees/babies, or took so much fruit from a tree without giving back that they damaged it then it wouldn't be fruitarianism. So a fruitarian couldn't buy meat, but if they found some lying around or as waste then they could eat it.

What ever people use it to mean now, I think that's the original definition of fruitarianism... Like how vegetarian originally means eating for fast digestive transit.

If you don't heat your house it will get damp and fall apart, and there'll be lots of fungus. People have always heated their homes.

I have tried buckwheat(similar to Quinoa afaik), but I reacted to it in the same way as I react to legumes(Broad beans most recently) - my body desperately trying to get rid of something in it - super intense diuretic(so much that my kidneys would hurt if I don't keep drinking) lasting for days(though decreasing in intensity over that time) and also cyst/pimple causing. I got a similar thing from steamed beetroot as well. All these things I followed the given instructions on preparing... Though when I looked up the traditional preparation all of them demanded very thorough preparation - The beetroot required soaking for a day and replacing the water over 3 days, and then boiling 3 times and replacing the water each time.. Only recently people stopped preparing stuff properly for whatever reason.. Guide was to steam broad beans in the pod for 8mins for fuck sake(so I did 30mins), yet the traditional method was to remove the pods,soak for days and boil several times... Why the fuck did people in the last 50 years suddenly think they can just forget how things have been done for millenia and make up their own shit? Damn crazy...

Sourdough bread is a traditional method of preparing wheat and I have no problem with it..

How well does the meat last in your shed? Do you get anything growing on the outside of the meat? What parts are you hanging and how? What's the environment like inside your shed?

Lung is muscle, which has some cartilage mixed in. This cartilage is easily chewable, digestible and a pleasure to eat. There is also some really nice fat that comes with the lungs too, and other bits of meat attached to it which are nice. It's a very refreshing food. Tyler is the only tasteless cartilage.

Everyone here said they like lungs except Tyler, actually... I like lungs.

If you keep diced meat in jars won't there also be pockets unexposed to air, even if you air the jar? And many people here would've suggested that it would be fine to eat a rotting animal carcass you found lying around 'because humans are scavengers' etc... Also, though the majority of botulinum excreting bacteria may die from exposure to air, the botulinum toxin will still be on the meat, and as well as poisoning you directly will also support the growth of the botulinum producing bacteria in your gut. I am glad Josh posted this article.

The food I eat is mainly from within ~20miles, and I walk to the shop which is less than a mile away. The abattoir of the butcher is also within 20 miles and the farms the animals are from too. The wild game is less than 15miles away.

I do, and I don't look for anything in particular. There's a good range of stuff in the organic store in my town which varies seasonally and I just choose what I want from that. I get my meat from local farms through a local butcher.

If they're going to eat grains and legumes and stuff you should learn to prepare it in a traditional way, such as making sourdough bread.

Of course early HUmans knew about fats and carbs.. They just didn't call them 'fats and carbs'... I guess the earliest didn't call them anything, but they would still recognise them.

Through trial an error over generations, if early HUman found he could improve coconut by processing it to a butter he would. He could also store it for lean times then, like bees with their honey. What's early though? They wouldn't have been able to come of with anything like that before the language-explosion.

Processing food is natural, but... when it is bad is when the way things are processed has no functional purpose. When it is only to increase profit by reducing labour; to make it easier pack; to make up for poor health of produce or damage done by previous pointless processing; to comply with regulations or cultural norms etc... In this case the effect on health is overlooked for profit. Processing to make something better is another matter.

I eat some sourdough bread as well but from a bakery.. How do you make yours? Do you use a starter?
