Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Who intentionally eats bugs?
« on: June 18, 2017, 06:54:47 am »
Meat doesn't usually go rotten in one day except when it's hot out.

I've never had any issue with bugs, been eating them since I was a child.

I remember my cousin offered to pay me 5 bucks for a cicada I had just snatched out of the air. Little did he know I had caught it with the intention of eating it.

They don't include the organs or marrow, even with a "whole" carcass. Maybe if they did sell the organs or had more choices I would be willing to make the drive, but they only have big packs that come with cuts I don't like and they trim off pretty much all the fat.

If they are selling halves and quarters basically they are selling you the animal and you are hiring the butcher. Ask the butcher.

They raise dexter cattle in nearby countryside New Jersey or NY is not far from rural areas really. Also there are buying clubs in NYC. If I still lived in NY I would sell you grass fed lamb organs.

Support your local farmer, Dexters are hardy like bison and are popular throughout the country.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: fatty wild meat, which sources?
« on: June 04, 2017, 01:20:31 am »
Domesticated pigs are fatter not just because they are fed more but also because they were bred to be, same as cows.
I read the aborigines had a custom where they knew when all their favorite fat sources were available at different times of the year, pine nut harvest, fattiest kangaroos, fattiest clams, etc. When the kangaroos were at their fattiest they hunted them to excess to extract the limited amount of fat from their bodies, sacrificing large amounts of meat in order to enrich their diet with fat.

My favorites are chuck steak, shanks and short ribs.

Hot Topics / Selenium yeast

Does anyone take this? It is of grave importance we have this available for our livestock as sodium selenium is not the healthy source we want.

I mostly agree however not entirely as it is totally possible for even soaked nuts to be disease forming in high concentrations or to particular individuals. Milk gets bashed on this forum all the time but by my account it is a much more healing and nourishing food than soaked nuts.

I would say exactly the opposite, that illness is a case by case basis. Illness is a condition inflicted upon us by our badly programmed minds. I believe there are no bad people, only bad ideas. We believe we control our beliefs but really the opposite is true. Simply eating 4 tablespoons of coconut oil a day is enough for most people to kill most of the pathogens in our body. Healing is taking place constantly in our body, when we get sick is when our body isn't functioning due to a deficiency.

When Native Americans were exposed to western diseases there were three main genotypes of humans in North America, compared to over 50 in Europe. None of these three had any resistance to the European diseases and over 90% perished, the main survivors were probably those living in optimal to sub-optimal conditions, often ones those people had adapted to over thousands of years. Most of this happened hundreds of years before European settlers had set foot on the same land their diseases had ravaged.

North America is in many ways the harshest environment in the world to live in, due to the extreme variation in heat and cold as well as the natural dependence on migration this continent as well a couple others naturally rewarded those who could keep up with the herds and punished those who lived in static settlements who had to rely on starvation quality foods for much of the year.

Starvation foods are high starch foods such as tubers, grains and nuts which are the mainstay diet of mankind however they should make up the smallest percentage of the diet of all the foods, as they are the main cause of disease in humanity and should only be eaten when no other food is available.

This is how we save the earth and save ourselves

I think that's mostly because of the power of placebo and the need for people's brains to find out what really works for them. A lot of people don't feel good and have been made to not feel good by certain foods.

For example I have had a lifelong aversion to eggs, because when I grew up, the quality of the eggs was all terrible and wreaked of the sulfur from the manure of the chickens and caused me to have to hold down my meal every time I ate chicken eggs, so that now although I enjoy raw eggs, I have a natural aversion to them and if that's all I have to eat it is not likely to make me feel at ease.

I hold the belief that some foods are more healing than others within the same type of food, for instance one piece of beef may be more healing than another, depending on how the cow was raised. Both the natural forage available to the cattle and the supplements the are provided with are of great importance. Simply the inclusion of supplemental magnesium I was told had a great improvement in the flavor and quality of the farmer's beef.

I think a lot of the reason for many people's failure with a raw animal foods diet is that they actually never got to eat any actually high quality meat, we are generally only reaching 50-75% of what is possible or perhaps less.

Cattle raised on high-energy natural diets are high energy animals, with larger fat stores, healthier organs, shinier coats and higher yields of better flavored beef. I choose bison over beef when I can as I generally find the quality better however some beef I believe is as good or better than the best bison I have tried, I am certain it is more a factor of how and where the animal is raised more than anything else.

If I am looking for one thing in particular it is too feel refreshed, I feel this way by eating the purest raw foods, grown in the best high energy, electric energy means I know to raise animals. Some raw foods do it for me and others do not as much... it seems like it's becoming harder not easier to get high quality foods here in U.S.

Demand for grass fed beef is very high but lack of producers creates high market demand and lack of quality producers creates lack of quality product.

I haven't even seen a single ranch in my life that wasn't severely overgrazed, bout time I visited some.

China is a good example of overpopulation being a myth. They aren't fucked cause there are too many of them, they are fucked because they are trying to adopt western lifestyle since their government attempted to abandon theirs in the cultural revolution. They have fractions the water and land resources of America yet support way more people. The idea that we have a higher quality of life is partly true and partly myth.

I read that the chinese had been finding dinosaur bones for thousands of years, sometimes using them as fence posts for their farms and was considered a possible origin of their belief in dragons.

Also it's painfully obvious that birds are down scaled versions of dinosaurs and worthy of note that they are still basically the dominant life form on the planet, neck and neck with humans. 

Fuck swimming pools, urine is a way nicer substance than chlorine. I hear they do have that purple stuff in Florida!

What if America is the promised land but has been lain to wasteland? What if we are not waiting for the apocalypse but rather the apocalypse is upon us?

Some mild climates are ideal grazing regions because they have long growing seasons and plenty of water, however these climates to not boast the mineral density of strong grass from low rainfall areas. They also do not boast severe winters and rarely snow melt irrigated spring pastures. What if the promised land is not in one particular place but in the splendor of a vast continent of migration? Why not follow the spring with a vast herd and a pack of dogs to defend it? The Canadian outback awaits!

My hope is that the aliens have a library of keystone species in the hole in the Earth in Antarctica. Part of the whole genetic science dogma may be that dinosaurs and mammoths indeed do exist in modern times and they are just waiting for the moment when it's time to restart earth again.

Where is the tropical paleo farm going to be?

My papayas did well though half of them got taken out in storms but they ate over 40 papayas and more rotted. Very much success very little effort. I want to extend much more effort and make the place produce cash and much more delicious fruit!

Hoping to visit Philippines, where should I move to farm tropical? Ecuador?

Fedco is the best, out of Maine they offer as far as I know the most economical and superior heirloom products, few hybrids and NOTHING from Monsanto. Seedsavers has the most variety, it's insane it's like 100 bucks to join the club or something and the catalog is probably bigger than the bible.

99% of GMO crops are corn, soy, cotton, and canola.  I don't eat none of it even if it is organic.  That makes all other green produce basically the same in both countries.
You are like that kid who keeps telling himself Santa is real.

Russia has banned and also has less money for modern pesticides which are much more harmful and persistent than DDT which launched the whole environmental movement to counter it.

Even organic food in USA is generally of low quality, this is typical of America, produce food at a high cost lacking in nutrition, flavor and quality.

I know of many farmers in America who are nearly organic by default because they don't have extra money to buy chemicals. Chemicals aren't cheap and you said Russia is broke, sounds like a good place to move to whether I'm interested in building a home or business.

Off Topic / American Filipino coral reef aquarium and scuba website
« on: February 15, 2017, 02:09:10 pm »
I was always fond of aquariums as a child and got pretty advanced into the hobby before I left my moms at 18. I still follow the hobby literature from time to time and have great interest in pursuing advancing these projects as well as aquaculture and agriculture. Anyways this guy has some really cool info about the reef environment and has made an attempt to recreate it in aquarium systems that have multiple aquariums that house multiple environments mimicking nature and also hosts affordable dives and diving instruction to the actual enviornments he bases his aquariums off of and collects his specimens. Pretty rad stuff if you ask me.

I am interested in expanding the hobby to include edible salt water aquariums using live ocean water collected far from shore.
Also interested in visiting those reefs in the Philippines!

We have a mid size kobelco track hoe and a smaller yanmar and an even smaller yanmar as well as some sort of bulldozer. The kobelco runs but needs servo replacements or adjustments. The larger yanmar won't start though turns over. There is also a yanmar trak dump. All machines in need of service.

Difficult to find knowledgeable help. Accomidations and provisions and pay for international laborers possible.
