Still not convinced?

Witness your death:

I could not watch the video due to youtube restrictions regarding graphic videos, and because I always forget my login password. One commenter said the parasites were actually "Ascaris", which are found in contaminated soil. So the guy likely got infected when he ate raw vegetables, not raw meat!

Perhaps people who eat a traditional diet which includes grains and cooked food must limit their exposition to parasites because their immune system is weaker, and their body "dirtier". Worse is when their body never had the chance to develop a better immunity because of low exposition to them during childhood.

Anyways, as GoodSam says, parasites are everywhere. You get them by walking barefoot on soil, drinking spring water, swimming in a lake, breathing...
Nowhere is safe.

Science / Re: Out of africa myth debunked in key aspect

The point is that individual humans or even regimes may make mistakes or even  commit outright fraud here and there or even a lot of the time, but one should judge the scientific papers in their own individual right and not just dismiss them because they contain conclusions that we do not like.
Right, still we can be suspicious of scientific papers when we suspect them to contain flaws in their execution or in the conclusion they give, especially if we are somehow able to give a more reasonable alternative conclusion, or can explain why the researcher(s) may have made up such a conclusion in the first place (eg: an archeologist trying to promote tourism in its region, or a lab funded by some company with an axe to grind).

Not saying it's the case with what you posted. Frankly I didn't even read it yet.

Also, by "Science" with a capital "S"(!), I simply mean the general pursuit of knowledge.
That's what I thought.

I just found it funny because generally speaking the other fundamental concept people like to put a capital letter on is God :) And you often like to remind people: "when you take religion from men, they simply turn to another God".

Hey, you do get one to two hours of awake time in the middle of the night. That's something! :P

There's one thing you said that ticked me particularly.

"Science is Science, it's not racist, or anything else. It's just Science".

Now that is partly, if not mostly incorrect, since Sience (why the capital S? :)) is a concept designed by men who are fundamentally subjective, biased and conditioned by their socio-cultural environment. Isn't "Nazi Science" science after all? To them it sure was. Science is all about trusting the researchers to be as objective and unbiased in their observations, experiments, hypothesis etc as possible without being -too- influenced by their personal beliefs, which they sure have, or ulterior motives, which they sure have.

There is only so much science to Science.

Of course I'm not insinuating that "Science" cannot be trusted at all, which is absurd. Only that Science is not absolute in the strict execution of it's principles mostly because of the nature of its maker. So not all science is worth the same.

You guys heard of Biphasic sleep?

It was supposedly the natural sleeping pattern for humans before electricity, especially during winter for people living in Europe and other high latitudes. Biphasic sleep implies going to bed when it's dark outside (or early-ish, like 8 or 9PM) and spontaneously waking up in the middle of the night (some say in a sort of secondary state), then going back to sleep an hour or two afterwards till dawn, or till your alarm beeps.
I'm guessing people didn't necessarily experience biphasic sleep in Summer when there is longer light time.

Some more info on Biphasic sleeping pattern:

We have those, they are called humans, they are the most technogically advanced things on the planet and we have billions of them.
Ugh, but they're like, organic, and full of germs. And they're gonna ask for, like, a fair wage, which is gonna upset daddy for sure...

Technological advancement doesn't necessary mean it has to be destructive and keep us out of tune with our environment. There is a growing number of initiatives and projects surrounding the "eco" ideal out there (meaning eco-technology, eco-villages, eco-farming, eco-everything...). If we already tried Eden, then let's try Eden 2.0!

I hope we'll one day have permaculture machines capable of harvesting different plants at their optimal picking time, in squares of land with several species growing next to one another.

I think you guys all heard about the Seralini study. Here's their website. They also answer critics who claimed that the study was poorly conducted:

Keep in mind that they have little to gain from having their study declared valid or not, except the satisfaction of making others aware of the danger, or perhaps supporting the comparatively much less profitable organic agriculture industry, unlike GM companies who have a lot more to lose from having their own "studies" invalidated (and so does the US government).

Goji berries are also another so-called "superfood" as is bee pollen etc. I do not know why you are so enthusiastic at the ability of big corporations to brainwash people into buying their useless products.
I was being sarcastic.

I didn't know coconuts were now labeled as "superfoods". I salute the ingenuity of agribusinesses for turning slightly unusual fruits and vegetables into extra profit. Same as low-fat (high-sugar) yogurt, and gluten-free vegetable soup.

Saber didn't even suggest going on a mono-diet of coconut in the first place.

Not just compost. In thailand, they use coconut fiber to make mattresses, and I'm pretty sure there's a hundred application for coconut by-products, in housing and such.

I will still be selfishly happy if the rest of the world stopped buying coconuts because us locals are getting hit by high coconut prices the past recent years when the first worlders suddenly had an appetite for coconuts.
Looks like it's not going to happen any time soon, with all this coconut oil trend. I recently found out they now sell VCO in Belgian supermarkets, when some time ago you could only find them in Asian and organic shops.

I went to Thailand a couple of times with my family as an early teen, and witnessed the coconut-picking with monkeys. I guess the process is a bit slower, but safer for the producers than to climb there themselves.

Agreed. Meat will not become illegal, and probably never will. DM often likes to post shocking and unusual stuff, cause people find it entertaining.

No one takes these idiots seriously. Relax. We'll have top-quality vat-grown meat before veganism ever gets any real traction in the Western world.

... or we'll just stick to our top quality regularly-grown animals.

I met a Belgian bow-hunting teacher and signed up for his bow-shooting club. Apparently bow-hunting is illegal in Belgium, so I'm feeling less and less inclined to pay for any kind of hunting license, even a French one. I'll just keep a low profile on the field ;)

Admit it, this is what most of us would like to have done in life, well, all except for the last few years in a nursing home.
Not too late for everyone!  ;) He left at age 24, I'm 20...just saying

Not too late for any of us, really. If you're already sporty, or if you accept that you might need the company of other fit and skillful people to make it. The man could've stayed in his jungle if he had an equally wild family to look after him and chew his crocodile steak.

I kinda believe in life missions, and perhaps his mission was to remind us through his awesome life story that keeping in touch with our wild side is essential.

kind of irresponsible (and selfish) though as the planet is already overpopulated.  what if everyone did this?
Well, if everyone left on its own for a crocodile infested hostile wilderness, hunted barehanded, and had sex with the occasional passerby, I could assure you there would be no overpopulation problem. In the wilderness it makes sens to have plenty of baby-making sex, since a part of these children will not survive long enough to reproduce: because of predators, lack of resources, and other threats. The birth/death ratio is usually balanced, so there is just enough individuals to reproduce and keep the population at a steady viable number. Of course the more food, the safer the environment etc, the greater the population, and vice versa.

In our modern world, our super-safe, super-plentiful world, it does not make as much sens to conceive so many babies, since the chances our children will survive to adult age are much much greater. So you can either populate the world to the point where there's an actual food shortage, or take a global decision to restrict the number of children per women to 2-3 (probably enough for the world population to regenerate), and maybe allow people to make more children in times following major crisis, such as natural disasters and wars. The matter might be more complex than that, but that's how I see things atm.

...And reading the comment section, it looks like the cultural conditioning has made them clearly hostile to the concept!

Talking about archery, I'm going to join a hunting-oriented archery club quite soon. I don't know yet if I'm going to sign up for a hunting license or not, since it means I'm going to pay money to hunt for only two-three months, when I intend to hunt occasionally, all year round.

Off Topic / London man goes to court for killing its own food ("illegaly")
« on: September 10, 2015, 12:13:48 am »

I'd like to know what you guys think about this.

I've got a problem with several aspects of this story.

First of all, they say the man "stole" the animal, when he clearly found it or captured it in the wilderness, meaning it didn't really belong to anybody in the first place (except the state?). It's not like he actually stole it from someone's ranch or something.

The way they describe how the capturing and killing took place is also revealing of the underneath hypocrisy of our time and culture: eating packaged meat is fine, lions ripping gazelles apart is "natural". But when a man captures and kills it's own food , it's called "disgusting", "cruel", "inhumane" etc... Of course, filming the whole scene is somehow disrespectful, even if it comes from pride of having found and taken down the animal by himself, but I bet the person would've been criticized the same nonetheless.

The way this man got sanctioned also demonstrates how our right to live as sovereign humans is being suppressed, through moral judgment or actual penal sanctions.

I haven't used body gel in at least two years, except that one day I realized I was spraying Roundup -while wearing summer clothes- when volunteering in Israeli "Eco Lodges". I usually just rinse my body and use natural deo afterwards.
I went three months without using anything on my hair (shampoo or "no-poo" baking soda and vinegar) after I was inspired by the blog of some girl who managed to keep her hair naturally clean without washing it. I started in Spain surrounded by hippy-ish people who didn't really mind, but afterwards my family were always complaining that my hair looked greasy, or dull, and that sometimes dandruff was visible. Please take note that I was on a S€Diet at that time (and still am, although I have been more active in researching raw or open-minded communities in my region, and have been planning a transitioning program that I feel I am ready to follow. Isolation from following a raw diet has been my main concern, but I realize that if I don't try it I'll never know for sure).

My hair got noticeably less greasy at the end of these three months, but the results were not satisfying enough for me to pursue past this point. I'm sure you guys following a raw diet will have much better results. My dog who eats a raw balanced diet has perfect, shiny, non-stinky hair, unlike the other dogs I meet who are fed on kibble and who's hair are greasy and have that typical dog smell which impregnates the whole house.

Nummi, your stance on this matter is quite hard to catch: do you believe being gay is an illness?

I see why some people would think so, but the fact is that even animals who live in a pristine, pollution-free environment, eating the most optimal diet, will still display homosexual behavior, partially or totally.

I think the number of "totally" gay animals may have to do with the size of the group they live in. The more individuals there is, the less breeders are needed, the more gays there will be. If a previously gay animal ends up being the last one of his sex among different-sex beings, chances are he will become heterosexual through some sort of hormonal shift for the sake of the survival of his specie.

In a wolf pack, all non-alpha members are gay, and in a state of hormonal numbness, until the Alpha can be challenged. At that point they start producing hormones such as testosterone in higher levels again, and if one wolf (usually the beta) succeeds in taking the place of the alpha male, it becomes heterosexual. That's how they keep from spending all their time killing each other over leadership.

When two young lions who recently left their old pack stumble upon one another, they will form a couple and take part in homosexual acts to strengthen their bond and ensure better protection of one another, until the day they find an old lion to challenge for its lionesses.

Homosexuality is as much a disorder as being left-handed. It's a survival strategy for the individual, the group, and the specie.

Again that anti-gay bullshit.

Because the American SCOTUS and their propagandist President has prioritized the promotion of homosexuality around the world... given the audacity to have appointed an ambassador solely for the promotion of homosexuality... 
The US government (and some other governments of this world) are not asking people to become gay. They are asking people to be tolerant of gays.

There are still people in America and Europe who are being verbally abused, cast out, assaulted or killed for the only reason of being gay. It happened not so long ago in Belgium. Promoting the acceptance of gays is therefor legitimate, and imperative if one's objective is to prevent hate crimes from happening some more.

As I've explained many times now, homosexuality, total or partial (bi), is natural, and is practiced by many animals. Especially the ones with great social intelligence like us.

Also, you don't become full-on gay because somebody tells you "being gay is great!". It just doesn't work like that.

Yes, they may squat better, but I am sure they still sometimes have issues with balance, such as if something big is exiting the body like a large turd etc.
Damn, how heavy are YOUR turds?!  l)

If you have nothing to hold on, another way is to rock your body a bit to the front and balance with one or both hands on the ground. With practice, pooping without holding on to anything should be manageable.
