Yeah, I guess I can get behind that. Just a bit of a shame it can't be better optimised  :sad:

The simple facts are food just fucking bores me. It's a lot of hassle having to decide on something to eat, go procure the ingredients and then spend hours mixing it all up into shit you can swallow. It's even more of a hassle when you really don't give a fuck about the whole process. Now and again I like a nice meal but, day to day, I can't be fucked even thinking about it.

Biology really gets on my tits sometimes  :argh!:

Play it safe - cover the gasmask in tinfoil - in case they beam commands in through your sinuses  :eek:

Having read it again, I'm sticking to my end.

The homophobes are not in a group which can be controlled by the SJWs, regardless of whether or not they understand what is being said.  The allie are, in many cases.

It has nothing to do with communication or understanding.  It has to do with Jim Jones and David Koresh and L R Hubbard.

Status games. Much more important instantly gratifying than some complex problem with no simple solution.

Variety is key to a really optimal diet, so forget about simplicity.

See, I've come across this a few times but I'm not convinced. Is there an explanation somewhere why we should eat a whole different bunch of different stuff. I'm not saying it's a bunch of crap but it doesn't make any sense to me. I'd rather it did.

Technically i could do this with a person's facebook wall, or with post history in a forum, but by fuck would i do it because of the difficulty in systematizing and formatting the text and doing the analysis itself. The ideal format is interviews, just mentioning what is possible.

The thought occurs that your skill-set is probably pretty close to what the NSA/GCHQ would look for in regards to certain roles.

It also occurs to me that if you ever wanted to do a hatchet job on someone it'd be a thing of beauty. I'd just like to take a moment to encourage that.

One problem with the soap theory - its the clyde. There's no detergent strong enough to survive in there. We've had fucking oil slicks disappear without a trace.

Good call on the nuts. I'm also hearing good things about berries. Isn't there something about too much beef = murder death kill or something? Also - environment. Can it be replaced with better, sustainable alternatives or are they all missing something?

Techmology and Scientism / Re: The Internet Takes Away Religion

The internet, to my mind is as big a leap in information transmission as the invention of the printing press was. The ramifications in terms of impact on the sharing of knowledge and ideas is of the same if not greater order of magnitude. The way we process ideas and subject them to examination and testing is accelerating the informing of the global consciousness. Ideas are much more rigorously tested, much quicker now than they used to be. Memetic evolution is selecting on an increasingly short timescale.

False ideas like many of the ones presented in religion are not strong enough to survive the ocean of critical analysis that is suddenly brought to bear on them and, because this analysis is now instantly made available to the whole world, these false ideas are falling pretty quickly, supplanted by replacement ideas that make much more coherent sense. It's still slow enough to disappoint some but at least most of those people would agree it's travelling in the right direction.

So yeah, I'd guess the internets has made a significant impact on religious affiliation. Hell, I can trace a massive decrease in my own - wooly mystical thinking - since I started using it. Much more effective, replacement concepts and descriptions have been made available to me. I purposefully bombard myself with new ones on a daily basis.

Blending is merely chewing with powertools, just make sure your chewing muscles don't atrophy.

I've heard there's more to it than that, enzimes in saliva that activate cascade effects in the digestive system and shit like that.

Calories are neither good nor bad since you are not gaining weight, so you shouldn't think about them at all.

A calorie is a unit of energy measurement. Absorbing energy in usable form is one of the main functions of eating. I'll have to think about them a bit but, like I said, I can scale up or down once I have a base proportion requirement.

Eat lots of various vegetables, raw vegetables usually retain more micronutrients than cooked but the difference isn't huge and cooked is easier to eat. Then again, if you blend it you won't need to cook it to make it easy to eat.

Nuts are always good but can be a hassle, eat them as occasional snacks or toss a handful of them in the blender with your meal.

Red meat is good for everything but your heart&arteries, eat it in moderation. I'd say go for 10-20% meat in your meal.
Keep the same percentage or less for fruit, too many bad sugars.

This pretty much defines where I'm at in terms of fuel intake, right now. What I want is what is the best single thing from each of those groups which, when taken in combination, yields the most efficient delivery of what I require. I don't want to be doing chicken one day and beef the next, if I can avoid it. What I want is an either/or or a percentage content of each which I can replicate every day. I want to concentrate on bang for my buck. So if one nut is the best source of something, I can ignore all the other types of nut and just eat that type.

Alcohol(Think of alcohol like this: It is sugar that dehydrates you for 72 hours)

I'll think of alcohol however I damn well please, thanks very much. It so happens I think of it as a psychic utopia realisation system, in accordance with popular Scottish theology :argh!:

Techmology and Scientism / Optimal Fuel Mix for Biological Vehicles
« on: April 06, 2014, 07:52:22 am »
I treat my body like a machine. Not like a "temple" as I've heard some people say. It's not something I revere and/or worship. It's a tool. It gets me from A-B and allows me to X, Y and Z when I get there. Some time ago, perhaps unconsciously, I decided I needed mine to be a touch more high-performance than the mean average. Compared to an Olympic athlete, my body is a heap of shit but, compared to the average joe, the difference is probably about the same.

Inhabiting a machine that's that's tuned to this level of performance has it's advantages. If you have a fast car, you get from A-B faster. For a given subset of human activity, a given X, Y and Z, being significantly stronger, more agile and with a greater stamina, the activity becomes easier, quicker, more efficient or even more enjoyable. One other area that requires very little attention to maintain machine performance is fuel. I'll stuff it full of carbs and proteins and fat for whatever the fuck it is that it does with that shit. Keep the water topped up. Essentially diet is not something I have to think about. One of the benefits of a performance metabolism is that, within reason, you can chuck most anything at it and it'll burn up what it needs and shit the rest.

So why am I thinking about this shit now? Quite simply my machine is out of warranty. Another couple of decades and most folks get rid of theirs by then, they just break down. They're programmed to break down. We (by this I mean people other than me) Haven't quite been able to either halt or reverse this process as of yet but we are able to slow it down and/or mitigate it's effects. We replace dying organs, we inject potions and elixirs and we zap shit with magical beams of energy. One thing that we (by this I mean me included) can do to help is to optimise fuel intake.

So here's my plan.

I've never given much of a fuck about variety (I can take it or leave it) I have actually lived whole years of my life on staple diets of convenience that never varied much. I'd eat the same shit for breakfast, lunch and dinner, every day. Never bothered me. I want to replicate the same scenario, as far as possible, reducing my day to day fuel consumption to one highly optimised training day diet and one highly optimised rest day intake.

I want to try and lob some science at this bitch, stay away from calories for the time being and concentrate on proportions and the best possible ingredients to give all the best kinds of nutrients. One diet to rule them all. Ideally it should consist of easy to procure ingredients which I can buy in bulk. I'll favour cheaper stuff but not to the detriment of health benefits. If a couple of spoons of lentils gave the same nutrients as caviar, I'll go lentils is what I mean.

Prep is another thing I'd like to simplify. I know it's not healthy to whizz everything up in a blender and skull the lot. I'm sure I've heard tell of reasons you ought to chew and fibres being destroyed or turned into sugar or some shit but, maybe some of it could be whizzed up and other stuff lobbed in a bowl and guzzled down? My fuel will be yanked from the fridge and stuffed in with the minimum time and effort applied.

Problem - I'm Scottish - I know fuck all about food. So, Peedee, I challenge you to help me invent the perfect formula top-fuel for running this machine on.

Site has my new age bullshit sense tingling but the bullet points are solid if I can back them up or replace them with research

That's either brilliant, or irretrievably brain damaged.   :lulz:

I wasn't aware the two were mutually exclusive  :lulz:

I, for one, would like to welcome our new beach-based overlords  :fap:

I wasn't even aware that all mammals didn't do it much the same way :eek:

It suggests to me that it'd make for a tough little bastard of an organism, tho. Compared to the other method.
