  1. What's new in this club
  2. https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/01/22/us/mr-peanut-dead-brand-tweet-trnd/index.html R.I.P.
  3. Ha-ha!! I just learned that people who live in much colder climates live longer! Cold exposure is good for the survival system!! So there!! P.s..I'm freezing by the way but that means i'm going to live much longer than you!!!! Oh, what I'd give for warmth!! What the friggin' sense in living to 100 when you're always freezing! Lol I call bullshit. Lol Now on to finding out tomorrow about eating plant based Vagan or eating meat. Or pizza. Or french fries. Or ice-cream.
  4. Margee: I do have a religion. I'm a napist. Sorry about the back, though. Back pain is among the worst. Get thee to a good physical therapist and do the exercises he or she gives you religiously. (Well, perhaps not religiously, but regularly!) (BTW, how's the weather in Halifax? It was t-shirt weather here in California today.... 61°F - 16°C )
  5. Lmao! You are well on your way to living to a great old age!!! P.S I had a nap today. Just started since I turned 65.I had a lot of physical trauma (Lower back and sciatica that crippled me) from a 2nd rear end car accident over the last year and as soon as I feel it hurting, I go and lay down now for a few minutes. I never, EVER took naps in my life. But don't they say that's good for you? It's part of my pain management now.
  6. OK, Margee: Re. sitting on our fat asses 1. Moving our bodies: Today I loaded and unloaded office furniture into a U-Haul truck. 2. Skipping a meal a day: Missed lunch because we had to get the job done. 3. Need for stress: Was stressed because we had to get the job done by 2 p.m. And I missed my nap. Does that count?
  7. @older These things I am about to mention can start at a very young age. So this is not just for older people. OK. Here's the first 3 things that I am learning. And of course everyone knows these things but when they are actually explained to you from an evolutionary/survival point of view, you look at it different ...like ''yeah, now that makes sense.'' 1. For instance I just listened to why it is so important for us to 'move' our bodies and not sit on our fat asses. When the body is not moving (sitting around all day) it thinks it is dying and it will tell the brain that the body is now now atrophying. So the brain starts to create the dying process. If the body is in motion during the day, the brain is now trying to help the body to live because the body is busy and the brain helps the body to keep going and living. It's makes sense to me? Thoughts? 2. Skipping a meal a day. Apparently we do not need all the food we put in our bodies. So all the organs are constantly overburdened. The digestive system has to work constantly to digest all this food and it is the highest energy system of the body. So we need to leave room for other systems to work. If the digestive system does not have to work overtime and use all the bodies energy for digesting food, it can now use the extra energy to attack sickness in the body. Makes sense to me. 3 Third, I am learning that the body needs some stress. We humans are always trying to get rid of stress. But without any stress and problem solving, we get completely bored and that's where we sit back down on our ass and do nothing. So we need some stress. But we have to keep the stress in order. When the stress is coming from a source of not being able to do anything like fix your kids problems or help someone if they don't want the help) we have to learn how to accept this and let it go. If the stress causes us to have more stress, then we must find solutions to fix problems that can be fixed. And this is where we humans tend to procrastinate and puts things off and our brains register this and we feel bad. So to actually feel happy, we must accept the responsibilities of life. Everyday. It's a fact of survival. And this helps to keep us alive. so now, I'll go and find out what we should eat.....Lmao!! So those are 3 things tonight. I'll be back.....to save your life....
  8. I would say that people eat what is available. Indigenous peoples ate what they could get. Plains Indians ate buffalo. Arctic peoples ate whale and seal meat. Central Americans probably ate lots of corn. Native Hawaiians ate a combination of fruits and meats. As to myself, I'm on the see food diet. I see food, I eat it.
  9. I'll be waiting. But please don't take too much time to figure it out. I don't have that much time left!
  10. @older....I just seriously burst out laughing loudly in my living room! Too funny! Thanks for the laugh! I had the same experience a few years ago and did the same thing! I said, ''Get me the frig out of this healthy, boring shit restaurant!'' I love this topic and will eventually contribute to it (when I get some time) because it's got so many good points I would love to address. I am studying how to reverse aging right now with food so I'll be back to let you all you old people (like me) know the diet!
  11. You're not wrong. They are all about suppressing natural urges. Actually, I saw one vegan bragging about not ejaculating for over three years. Not just not masturbating, watching porn, or having sex. He was bragging about being so sexually (and possibly nutritionally) repressed that he hasn't even had a wet-dream. Many years ago, we were part of a conversation where carnivores and vegans "debated" about the merits of their diet. It quickly became apparent that we were arguing with wildly different measures of success. Their arguments were essentially moral. Our arguments were about health and wellness. They insisted on sticking to proving it was immoral to eat meat. And we insisted on proving it was healthy to eat meat. It's pointless, because we weren't debating about the same thing. We refuse/refused to consider it morally wrong for an animal to eat is natural diet (which, we argue is a predominantly carnivorous diet for humans). Several of them flat out admitted that, if veganism was proven to be unhealthy, they would still do it because it was morally better for them to suffer from their diet than it was to hurt/kill animals.
  12. Vegan activism resembles Christianity. One group wants us to suppress our carnivorous urges, the other wants us to suppress the sexual ones.
  13. Just today I ended up at some vegetarian place for lunch — not by choice but by expediency. I could't figure out anything on the menu as the items all had weird names and strange ingredients. But everything was supposed to be pure, organic, gluten-free, allergy-free, and totally without any nutritional value whatsoever. So I ordered the first item on the menu and for $9 I got a tube-shaped thing wrapped in a lettuce leaf and containing some unidentifiable assortment of green and red rabbit food and which oozed out some sort of yellow goo when bitten into. Bah. As soon as I got home I grabbed a glass of milk and an extra-large chocolate chip cookie.

  15. It's mind-boggling how barbaric some people are. It's so sad to see what the victims had to endure. Oh, haven't you heard? The Christians who do heinous things aren't really Christians; they're atheists pretending to be Christians. We know that because atheists are all liars and only atheists behave so callously. Christians would never do that. (....Yeah, right....)
  16. Oh man, I think I remember him from way back in the day. It sucks that he fell back into Christianity.
  17. I was vegetarian for years, until the combination of that diet and my regular blood donations led to being turned away for low iron. It was then that I learned that I had trouble absorbing non-heme iron. Then I went back to a mixed diet, for a while. Now I have been on the opposite end of the spectrum for several years. I just find it hard to believe that it is wrong to eat the diet we evolved to eat.
  18. What concerns me is that many Trump supports will fail to see the complete hypocrisy between what he kept saying about Obama (Obama will start a war with Iran) and Trumps actions. The downing of that plane is at least partially because of the increased tension over there now IMO.
  19. https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/americas/118893339/cult-anointed-by-god-kills-7-in-panama-jungle I've still yet to read an article that reads "Atheists appointed by Darwin kills x people" (To contrast what the religious often say about the morals of atheists and their 'religion' of atheism.)
