Your -1 rating means that your arguments are not complete and incorrect. Moreover as you are clearly a Fox "News" watcher, you forgot the atrocities that christian religions have perpetrated on the planet. Had you kept those in mind, you perhaps would have been too embarrassed to post such idiotic drivel, at least you had a bit good sense and did not sign your name to it.
Otherwise. I'll probably be masturbating, drinking, eating turkey, and enjoying my family.
Did you realize how wrong this sounded (on so many levels) when you posted it and were going for the lolz? Or did you surprise yourself too?
hmm. Those guys were first and foremost rich, white, land and business-owning males, oh, and they owned people too. They were primarily in it to make sure that they had a government that would serve the interests of
The fact is most Americans are fat and a large number of those are obese, most on a 65-85% carb diet, so I'd rethink my idea about what works. I think you don't grasp the fact that even 100K years is not a lot of time evolutionarily speaking (for 90% of that 100K years grains were a very minor part of the diet). With grain eating comes tooth decay, heart disease, obesity, etc, and no wonder, grains are a sugar, nothing more, nothing less. They may come with a bit of fiber and some vitamins but grains are by no means essential. I am clearly not going to convince you since your mind is already made up. There is plenty of evidence about what our diet consisted of and by and large it didn't consist of grains, largely because they aren't a good source of calories. Much easier to get needed calories from the flesh of animals. Here's a link for you, read its contents and get back to me if you don't mind. Feel free to compose a web page arguing against it point by point if you feel up to it.
We absolutely know that insulin spikes are bad that is why the body has to work superhard to bring them down lest they kill us. Ketosis is a natural state, as I explained arrived at through millions of years of evolution. Grasses are primarily made up of leaf and they are not a high calorie food thus would not have formed the core of any diet. A gorilla gets most of its nutrition from leaves and it has to spend most of its waking hours eating, and look at the size of its stomach. We have no ruminant apparatus, we are not highly efficient grain eaters. Birds seem to do well on grains but I don't think any other animals do. In ketosis there is no cannibalization of resources that are costly to replenish, the body just thrives on dietary fat, there is no loss of muscle tissue and performance is generally much improved. Read the book I recommended, it is chock-full of facts not sponsored by agri-chemical companies.
Also, the agricultural revolution began 10,000 years ago. Before that (the 100K years you refer to) grains were not cultivated, they were eaten when found by chance. They also weren't the massively seeded products that we are now bombarded with. They were wild plants with a much smaller seed-head.
Americans (and others on Western diets) are getting fat by following precepts like your eatwell plate. You keep eating like that, I'll stick to vegetables, fat, and moderate amounts of meat. The eatwell plate looks like the wet dream of the USDA, an organization charged with promoting the interest of grain growers and the chemical companies that supply their products.
People ain't got time to read labels. Some people can't read due to having bad eyesight. Maybe let them eat the shit and maybe they'll take themselves out of the gene pool? Shit! That's me! Too late to take me out of the gene pool though, ha!
Is that why it is illegal in most states to sell raw milk despite it being an extremely healthy and natural product?
My mom can't read the labels, the writing is too small. She also doesn't remember to check labels and sometimes buys things like "Orange Juice drink" not realizing it wasn't orange juice. Garlic that comes from China, because the "from China" label is written in a tiny font. Bans would be good, otherwise a bold message in the front stating that the product contains unnatural additives known to cause heart disease etc. The messages should have the largest font of the package with a non-obscuring background, the font should be no smaller than the largest writing on the package including logos.
Read "The Art and Science Of Low Carbohydrate Living", in it you'll find out that the "proof" that is often rolled out about the safety and correctness of HC diets is anything but solid. High fat diets are what millions of years of evolution has conditioned our bodies for. Ten thousand years (a generous figure) of agricultural products (grain in appreciable quantity) is not a long enough period nor have they had the requisite evolutionary pressure to modify our physiology to optimally perform on them. Carbs are bad, they cause insulin spikes and those aren't good, are they? Fat is good, just the body needs a period of about 6 weeks to fully adapt to them. The carbs need to be 20% or less of the caloric intake for the body to enter a ketonic state.
I don't see why they couldn't import the needed parts. Computer stuff like that is commonplace, so are servomotors and gears. There's really not that much to it. I did call out for a well equiped machine shop, they could hob out custom gears if they needed to, but they shouldn't have to. Software? All available for free or for a price, it's not that hard to move disks around or set up a download server wherever.
Why does it matter whether they can develop their own stuff, in their own country, with their own technology? Shit! The USA can't do that either. Check where your computer was made, its internals, etc. The government doesn't have a magic source of domestic computers either. If China shut down their exports (don't argue that likelihood, cause I know it won't happen too), we'd be like Cuba for a couple of decades, continuing to patch up shit cause there wouldn't be new to be had. Not that Cuba is doing that badly, they have an awesome vermicomposting system for example.
Hmm, how about the thing that Ian Lamont (Jack Black) built for The Jackal (Bruce Willis) in "The Jackal"? Add some wheels to that bad boy, a little more software sophistication and you're most of the way there. So, I'd say that a well equipped machine shop with a McMaster catalog and an attached software geek could handily come up with a decent arduino based solution.
why isn't this modded up? Did the ultra-right wing idiots get control here too?
I always thought girlintraining was a guy working toward a sex change. Now I see that the nickname refers to this being a guy-not-angling-for-a-sex-change who is raising (training) his sister (girl), thus girlintraining. Aha!
No, the proposed solution still works. The shotgun approach would bite them that much harder as the patent office, now being an adversarial player would work hard to make revenue and would see these shotgun filings as a rich and easily minable source of revenue. It would force companies to actually do prior art searches to make sure that patent applications didn't end up costing more than they would ever be worth. Essentially it would cause a lot self-restraint even in the psychopathic individuals that corporations are, it would make them almost human. Excellent suggestion AC!
or more importantly and worse, early.
