Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Your tips on eating raw hazelnuts?
« on: June 23, 2015, 06:00:22 pm »
Soaking and sprouting nuts increases their enzymes. At the same time enzyme inhibitors are broken down. Un soaked nuts deplete enzymes while soaked or better sprouted ones increase them. I don't care for the flavor of unsoaked nuts at all while soaked nuts are delicious.

Japanese and Korean people probably have little need for a raw paleontologists website. Actually the best part about dining with vs is gets down with the whole no water thing which  I am personally all about.

What color was the chicken you started with? White meat is a modern invention. Chicken should be yellow fat (although some breeds are white fatted) and have pretty red colored meat.

I agree with you Eric.  I try to get my raw vegetables through juicing at times when I feel like it.  Even dried and ground malunggay helps. 

GS we are growing malunggay! Do you eat katuk as well? We grow that too.

Jeune Koq, you mention jogging and feeling cold at -5 celsius and being fine above freezing, even when it's raining. What climate do you live in? I am having trouble finding this information on the internet, but in my personal experience the weather that plays between freezing and not freezing is actually much more uncomfortable than the weather that just stays way bellow freezing all the time. This is largely because in the former case there is much more humidity in the air.

One winter I lived in a heated cabin in Southern Ohio. It was a very rainy winter, it felt very cold, i shivered a lot and even developed a slight case of walking pneumonia which is one of two times I ever suffered from pneumonia symptoms. Two winters later, the winter before last, I lived in Northern Michigan. I lived in a insulated loft in a closed barn without heat for 2/3 - 3/4 of that winter after I became disgusted with the smoke that would sometimes waft out of the wood stove. The temperature went above freezing on two occasions that winter for a few hours. I shit you not 17 degrees felt warm, almost like spring time. I would walk 6 miles at 4 in the morning when it was -20 to -30 fahrenheit (that's -29 to -34 celsius) with the wind howling at 20-30 miles per hour. I wore jeans with cotton long underwear, a shirt and a couple wool sweaters with a coat, a hat and gloves. I had a -30 degree rated sleeping bag I used as a blanket and slept with two long hair cats. Never did I feel acutely cold. Never did I shiver. Not until the spring rains came lol. Never did I get sick that winter.

Tyler Durden I think you still keep saying that smaller people are more adapted to the cold and have less surface area to body mass. Albeit I can't find where you said it but I think you said it. Smaller people have more surface area to body mass.'s_rule

I feel like smaller size in arctic regions has more to do with limited food supply than it does with smaller bodies being more suited to the cold.

The hieroglyph is pretty compelling however the big problem I see with the theory is how did they move that much water? Was that small vessel pictured really enough to saturate the sand to move the stone boat more than a few feet? How much water would have to be moved and with what apparatus? How far were the stones transported? And how are they all so near perfect and fit together nearly perfectly, better than they say could be achieved by modern man. It should also be noted that the great pyramids are quite a bit older than this particular image.

I mean really how much water does it take to saturate all the sand in the stones path? Let them demonstrate it in practice before you are taken away by this "proof".

People who are sickened or die from amoebas are though to have an immunity deficiency. Harmful amoebas are extremely common in bodies of water in hot, humid climates, however infection is rare. Children are the most susceptible. Also it is not the amoebas natural function, it is humans to the amoeba are what is known as an aberrant host.

I was writing a lengthy response to this topic about aberrant hosts, but it was very difficult for me to do so. But I have encountered them in agriculture and they caused extremely significant losses.

As far as humans go there are three I am aware of. There is a parasite in some seafoods that may cause vomiting for a few days and then die. There is a worm that in a certain life stage, when it is found in human and swine feces, can travel into human muscles or brain tissue, form cysts and die. And then there is this amoeba. From what I understand parasites of aberrant hosts are dangerous because they find their natural host is in some way similar to the aberrant host, but has not developed a natural immunity to it, because these are truly symbiotic organisms. It's like a glitch in the system. In the case of the amoeba there is a chemical in brain tissue that is apparently similar to what is found in some kinds of plankton.

Sheep eat closer to the ground or as close as a horse or donkey which are all closer than anything else. Horses and donkeys have upper teeth, sheep do not so they don't shear as well. I would think this would be more likely the case in pastures without rotations and especially where grass was recently planted. In the case of pastures without rotations the grass will grow super short. Whenever grass is clipped it sheds an equal proportion of roots so really short grass has little roots to hold it in the earth and yes then a sheep or a goat can pull it up out of the ground by the roots. This is a very unhealthy situation for the animal however and generally these animals will require grain supplement to remain in good thrift not to mention worm medication for the heavy parasite load they will receive from eating around their own excrement in grass that is very close to the ground. Sheep without quality grass to eat will bit the grass into the ground and actually eat part of the root. These sheep are starving nutritionally. They may be able to hold on long enough for fresh growth but will do incredible damage to their landscape. This is how bad animal management can create deserts.

Also it should be mentioned that the bulk of vitamins and nutrients in pasture occurs in the spring in most parts of the world. Also generally in us a sheep is much cheaper than a lamb so that's a plus. If you can get cheap small lambs I would buy them in two months and slaughter in late spring early summer as this will yield the most flesh and be the most nutritious and delicious possible.

From what I read, never. According to studies I read the fat ratio never became the correct ratio in a grass fed animal of any animal raised on grains. Unless you have very good grass or a very hardy animal suited to the task they may not even do well and be of poor thrift. It would likely take a year to simply transition to that kind of a lifestyle. Although it completely depends on the quality of your grass and where the animal came from. Say the animal was eating mostly poor quality grass and some grain and you have really good grass, likely this would be a nutrient increase in the diet of the animal and the animal would do really really well. It also depends on how much grass you have. You could start out with really good grass but in one month suddenly most of the grass is gone and the animal will go into nutritional decline.

Really complicated question, you need to put more variables into the equation to get a halfway good answer. I think your best bet would be to get lambs that were recently weaned and on pasture. They may have had little to no grain in their lives and the same with their mothers. Most beef herds eat little to no grain and their calves generally don't eat grain until they are moved to a feedlot on another farm.

Make sure you bring a portable fishing pole and tackle! If you can find a squid lure they are really easy to catch at night, especially if there is a light near the water attracting them. Or you could order one of these luminous squid lures that will bring them in like a magnet.

Squid are pretty common near the surface at night in the open ocean, i would go for it! Be careful though, a small squid might put up a surprising fight. They say 40 pound humbolts on the west coast fight like a 300 pound fish! Squids on this side are generally much smaller than that though.

Off Topic / Re: Jerky question
« on: June 03, 2015, 02:19:00 am »
In my experience it seems like you need to limit your jerky ingestion and allow it to digest because you can eat a lot more jerky by dry matter than you would normally eat meat. If it starts to grow mold which it often does if you try to keep it very long, I just eat it and never have I experienced adverse effects.

You can actually make pretty dang good jerky from lungs if you happen to have any of those.

What kind of water were you drinking? When I am healthy it is hard to force down tap water. When I am sick I would dehydrate before I drank it. One time I was really sick and the only water where I was was tap water. It tasted like chemicals from under the sink, after being filtered by a new brita filter. I tried to drink and puked it back up 3-5 times. Finally i drove myself up to where my animals were and drank the water there. It tasted positively awful, (normally it tasted really good). But I was able to hold it down. I drank it again a little while later, still tasted bad but better and on the third time drinking about an hour after the first it tasted pretty much like mountain spring water.

I'm one of those real crazies who thinks water isn't an ideal beverage. If you must drink water, especially water of not very pure quality, lemon juice or apple cider vinegar and perhaps raw honey help a lot.

I'm a cynical optimist. You should strive to find the positive things in life. I don't know how your brain can handle it. I had to stop learning about politics because it causes me to be depressed and yell. Focusing on negative things causes my consciousness to shut down and I go into a vegetative state.

I'm sorry I do think Darwin was close to right, however there is another pre darwin evolutionary theory i think is actually more on track. See Lemarck.

5 minutes in he tried to debunk radioactive dating from whence uranium breaking down into lead which breaks down into helium, if the world is 4 billion years old based on that data, there should be much more helium in the atmosphere. He fails to mention that helium escapes the earth's atmosphere because it is lighter than the bulk of the gasses that make up the atmosphere. When he talks about the order that evolution took place he glazes over it and does not give an accurate description. I don't think darwin was very close to right but i don't think this guy is either.

He keeps saying billions and billions and billions of years for evolution to take place, but by all accounts scientists believe multicellular life started around a billion years ago. Besides just because a small detail is incorrect doesn't mean it disproves the theory. This guy is reaching pretty far and being a sensationalist, in my opinion he is just trying to sell a book.

It comes down again to this contraception depopulation talk.  And from what I see here, it is most successful at contraceptivizing many of our members here to extinction.  I would have thought all our paleo talk would make our members more hungry to survive, not just personally, but multi-generationally as well.

What country should I move to? Who am I kidding, I don't have enough money.

From what I understood they took dogs with them. Were dingos domesticated or were they at one time?

It said few people have the necessary gut biome for this.

I didn't read it quite  that way, from what I understood few people were healthy enough.

Native Americans kept dogs and not much in the way of livestock (at least in north america) until the arrival of white man.
