Comment Re:Eat Fat, Get Thin -- Refined carbs makes you fa (Score 2) 242

Trying to boil diet down to some kind of simplistic equation, this=good, that = bad, doesn't work
My personal anecdote, my grandmother, of eastern European descent, ate potatoes, in some form, with nearly every meal (EWWW CARBS), and nearly every day would eat sausage or low grade, hi fat cuts of pork or beef (jowls etc...), for lunch and dinner... Also lots of cabbage, turnips, and vegetables of that type...

lived to be 98, and was physically and cognitively intact all but the last 5 years or so.

There is no simple equation, except maybe, don't be a fatass, and try to not eat food that comes off an assembly line.

"He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother."

Well, you're just a big bowl of sunshine aren't you? I think you need to include more "fucks" and "shits" in your comments so we know you have thoroughly considered things

If a car is parked on a road, you can call it a road, or you can call it a parking spot. That's a choice I leave up to you.
Regardless, it's not like we need another Manhattan project to figure out how to get electric power to places where people park their cars.

I can build a new house with a garage on the roof and an electromagnetic car lift to let me use it, but that also isn't going to happen in the foreseeable future;

Right, because that's exactly like installing a simplified parking-meter style apparatus to a parking spot to allow the charging of an electric car. I mean, that's really Arthur C. Clarke stuff right there... We can only dream.
