Around 1:00:00 they digress a bit into the evil legal battles that go on in big food business. While I don't doubt that goes on, it goes on in every industry, not just food. Software patents are just as evil and stupid as food patents. That part's a bit of a boring sidetrack and lasts around 25 minu...

Think about how many economists didn't see housing bubble coming... group-think is powerful and compounds minor levels of incompetence.

Well, I'm not quite so quick to ascribe malevolence to what could just as easily be the result of incompetence and group-think.

Most of these responses have devolved into "I'm rubber and you're glue" so responding is losing interest, but just to set the record straight: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid alone are 50.02% of the non-interest budget for 2011, according to the government itself at gpoaccess.gov. They don't ...

So, analogizing your examples, you think "Given that libertarian X believes a child becomes a legal person is prior to birth" is a logical fallacy? Ie, it's impossible for a libertarian to believe that an unborn child is a legal person?

I've been meaning to follow up on this one. When I started doing grip work I noticed that I could feel the failure point better without gloves. I've since incorporated more RDLs, which hit the grip quite a bit, especially done with a bit of explosiveness at the bottom. Anyway, the point is that I fe...

I thought there were good studies showing high enough doses of caffeine were a diuretic and a fat-burner?

Now I'm once again reminded of that cool bumper sticker I saw - "Don't believe everything you think"... :-)

Maybe those guys had an agenda, (I'm not sure I'd go that far) but certainly they did a poor job.

I've listened to the first ~40 minutes. Their main thesis seems to be that factory farming causes cost-cutting measures that can be dangerous - ie, that it increases calories, reduces nutrition, and allows for more/worse pathogens. Low-nutrition food is cheap, and high-nutrition food is expensive. I...

Your philosophy comment is completely incorrect. The point is it's not an opposing study. It's a misleadingly titled study.

Both of you seem to have a bad habit of assuming nefarious intent in discussions - it has an unfortunate impact. Anyway, I'm back to not knowing Ironman's answer to that... When I asked: Given that libertarian X believes a child becomes a legal person is prior to birth, should X allow one class of l...

1 - You're just nit-picking semantics. "Slightly socialist", whatever. The point is that the more socialist you are, the less you care about overall prosperity, and the more you care about overall equality of outcome. 2 - They did other things in addition to that, sure, but those things were bad. 3 ...

I've cycled Creatine Monohydrate a few times and never noticed anything. This might be slightly off-topic, but with regards to the idea of cycling and and mega-dosing, just earlier today I was reading about Creatine HCL. Supposedly it's more readily absorbed and effective. Anyone here used it? I was...

There's almost no nutrition in grains. Make every calorie count - eat high-nutrition foods.
