You're absolutely within your rights to rip him a new one, in my opinion, and I'd think you're 100% qualified to do just that. But if you want it to be bloodless, you could try some of the things that deter burglars, like "Beware of the dog" signs. Maybe even "tresspassers will be shot" or something similiar. People like these tend to take the path of least resistance. Sadly, this means they will just look for another target, but in todays world sometimes thats the best option we get.

What BigKhanz said about fighting is completely true. A lot of what you learn in the dojo isn't practical. I did Brazillian Jiu Jitsu which is pretty highly regarded, and only found a few good techniques to "take home" out of the multitude we learnt, for example the mighty "Guillotine". BigKhanz, that's an impressive list of qualifications.

Yeah, sounds about right. Emotions are some of the most addictive drugs in the world.

The strawberries we get these days in supermarkets have absolutely no taste. They look nice and big and red, but you might as well be eating cardboard.

Calm down, Wheeler. On this board we're all friends and try to keep it civil.

OMG,  I was only kidding,   no offence meant

Sorry, I thought you were serious.
Anyway, I think that men biologically want to have sex with multiple women, while it makes more sense for a woman to want one man, so he can stick around and raise the children and provide. We don't actually stray that far away from biology in a way, women are still drawn to the alpha males who have much more sex than average men.

I'm not necessarily closed to the idea that a higher being created  life, I just don't think it handed out rule books to earthly representatives (if it exists).

People say everything in moderation, but I really believe some things really shouldn't be consumed in any quantity. For example your margarines, aka hydrogenated oil or "plastic" fats. There are some things that don't serve any purpose at all in the diet.

Ah good, I'm not alone then.

Hey there Wheeler, welcome to the board. I also quite like the carbs, my favourite meal beef stroganoff having pasta as the base, and my second favourite meal pizza having a base made of white flour. But the energy you get from fat fuels is far superior to these fake foods.

I recently found out that whenever I oversleep, it is because of carbohydrates the day/night before. On carbs I need 10-12 hours sleep after a normal 16 hour day. But on fat fuel, I can be up 20, 22 hours and only need 7 hours sleep - and have PLENTY more energy.

He also touches on plastic chemicals mimicking estrogen and wreaking havoc on our body, from memory. But yeah, he has a bunch of different topics he's covered so make sure to check out the ones that interest you.

I've thought about this again, and it may have a point. I keep forgetting that not everyone has access to healthy meat. What's very likely is that it studied average meat-eaters, probably Americans, whose beef is contaminated with dioxin, DDT, given growth hormones, estrogens, fed on grain etc... In New Zealand we're lucky to have pasture raised grass-fed beef.

In my opinion you don't have to be a 100% purist, when you're starting out anyway. Maybe if you're hungry for sweet things, you could keep them til the end of the large evening meal - thus limiting how much you can eat of them. On top of that I would keep it to healthier options like fruit and yoghurt.

Interesting. I'd only ever thought of eating bugs as a survival route, not as a main course.

I have this radio show on RSS feed (as I do this site) so every wednesday I can hear what Ori Hofmekler (author of the warrior diet) has to say on a lot of issues not touched at all by mainstream media.
This particular show is fascinating. Explains the effects of estrogen, grains, etc on our body. And here's what you all wanted to hear - high fat is the best fuel for testosterone! Give it a listen.

General Discussion / The Global Food Crisis
« on: May 29, 2008, 11:57:22 AM »
I have the BBC giving my browser updates via an RSS feed, as I do this site, and I can't help but notice the amount of food crisis articles.

No doubt you guys have been noticing the price hikes? I don't think the issues behind this (peak oil and "Industrial Agriculture") are likely to be resolved any time soon.

Goddamn. What kind of nutcase shoots somebody in the leg for stealing a tin of food?

800 languages? Wow. I guess you'll have to persuade who you can not to sell their land. A significant number of people from the "developed world" wish they could return to hunting and gathering.

I feel pretty lucky finding out about this stuff that you don't see on the news.

Philosophy / "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" by Dr. Price

I've found this available to read online for free at

Of note so far:
On the subject of dental cavities - "These data reveal an average increase in susceptibility of thirty-five fold." The average man in the 1930s, who was a hell of a lot healthier than the average man in the 2000s, was 35 times more likely to have dental cavities.

On fertility - "Almost everyone who studies the matter will be surprised that such clear-cut evidence of a decline in modern reproductive efficiency could be all about us and not have been previously noted and reviewed."
Back in the 30s,  they were worried about their reproductive success relative to the primitives. Our sperm count has dropped 50% since the fifties. Food for thought.

The Eskimos never had doctors, and "healthy" people over here come down with a cold every few weeks.

The Weston A Price Foundation is a favourite website of mine. Excellent article.
It reminds me of a thing I tell my friends when they're sick but consider themselves generally healthy people. "Healthy people don't get sick."

"Bear in mind that a lot of these men set weightlifting records nearly a hundred years ago, which are unbeaten to this day, as well as being champion wrestlers, boxers and gymnasts. (This was in the days before protein shakes, supplements, steppers, gyms filled with machines, sweatbands and all the rest of the modern paraphernalia that we are all constantly told we “need”).

One of the best things I've ever read^
The article by the way, was "Kettlebells: An Antidote to the Hype"

Read the wikipedia entry, googled it, found an article invalidating it.
