  2. Taken from an observatory in Tucson: http://i.imgur.com/XUvst3R.jpg

  3. One of these days when I’m tired of being employed I’ll get a giant neck tattoo.

  4. No one ever gets a neck tattoo that reads “3.9 Undergrad GPA from Harvard”.

  5. That’s more of a tramp-stamp thing, CA.

  6. It’s snowing in north Huntsville. W.T.F.

  7. 3 inches up here.

  8. No one ever gets a neck tattoo that reads “3.9 Undergrad GPA from Harvard”.

    “You went to Harvard? Get out of my office.”

  9. It is 65, cloudy and not unpleasant in NJ

  10. False, it’s still NJ.

  11. 52 degrees now
    94 degrees later

  12. I’d hire 3 guys from Larry Tech before hiring one guy from Harvard.

    LTU has less grade inflation.

  13. 53 in Bangor with a cold front and rain on the way. Wednesday morning there may be snow but not for long.

  14. Leon,
    Yesterday you said it is 75% about diet.
    I am pre diabetic and overweight. 5’10” and 220 lb.
    I understand that I need to cut carbs. Wife agrees but won’t let me eat more fat because…..
    What advice do you have for me? I don’t want to take up your time. Just a few pointers and book/website recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

  15. >>False, it’s still NJ.

    Fine, it is 64 and mildly uncomfortable, leaning towards annoying in NJ

  16. What advice are you seeking? How to construct a LCHF/ketogenic diet, or how to convince your wife that it’s safe?

  17. taxes filed. modest refund.

    First time in years I haven’t written a check.

  18. No one ever gets a neck tattoo that reads “3.9 Undergrad GPA from Harvard”.

    Or “Engage in thoughtful self-improvement by finding the meaning and dignity in work”

  19. Good job Cyn.

    * awards Cyn 104 pts *

  20. This guy is a Swede, so he’s a big gov type, but his science and recommendations are great.

    http://www.dietdoctor.com/

  21. Heh, my wife is anti-fat too. It’s hard to convince people of learned behaviors.

    Dave taught me that.

  22. I need some dignity at work.

    Nah, I need other people to find dignity in work. And perhaps do some of it, sometimes.

  23. Jay, she’s met me. Tell her that my diet most of the time is 60-80% fat by calorie, and literally every medical measurement of my health is excellent. Almost all of the fat comes from real butter, animal fat, olives, or coconut.

  24. And you’ve seen the pic of me in Paris, so don’t let her tell you it’s genetics.

  25. Tush, tell the wife that the “scientists” who screech about fat being bad for you are the same sort of “scientists” who screech about Global Warming.

    In other words, the ones who have been able to convince people in high places – especially those who never took a science class in college, but who will never admit that they aren’t smart enough to know better – that their theories are correct.

    The human body CANNOT store dietary fat (the stuff that you eat) in any way, shape, or form – it all gets burned up by our bodies. The stuff that builds up in your arteries all comes from inflammation; the stuff that builds up around your stomach and your thighs is caused by excess carbohydrates being stored as fat.

  26. I need to stop skimming and start reading for detail. All I saw in fast motion was Car in stating “3 inches up here”. Immediately thought, that is impressive in cold weather.

  27. The lipid hypothesis is basically global warming in nutrition, indeed.

    Absolutely no well-constructed study supports it, and basic biochemistry refutes it outright.

  28. Leon, I need advice on constructing that LSD keto-whatsis thingy.
    Convincing my wife will be an arduous task, but that battle is mine to fight.

  29. >> And you’ve seen the pic of me in Paris, so don’t let her tell you it’s genetics.

    We’ll always have Paris.

  30. There’s a cookbook/guidebook called Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon that preaches some of the same stuff about eating real food. She’s not afraid of good phats. See also Weston Price Foundation. Some of the stuff there goes off the rails but it’s all about eating real food.

  31. The human body CANNOT store dietary fat

    I’m sorry, but this is completely false. Dietary fat can be stored unchanged in fat cells under the correct circumstances. This is the reason man-made transfats are so dangerous, they can be shuttled directly into fatty tissue instead of the fats that are supposed to be there.

  32. >> And you’ve seen the pic of me in Paris

    Half the men in western world have been in Paris Hilton. Not all of them got pics.

  33. Tushar, read the site I linked, he has a “beginning” link that can get you started. Get your cholesterol numbers and triglycerides tested now, eat like he says exclusively for 30 days, then get them tested again and show your wife the data.

  34. *wonders whether it was my breath that turned off Paris*

  35. Leon, I will. Thanks.
    I am tired of being fat and lazy. I want to live!

  36. I should note that “correct circumstances” includes “my insulin level was higher than fasting because I also ate some carbs”.

  37. It takes longer for our body to process fat calories, which is why we feel fuller for so much longer after we eat a high-fat meal. It’s also why people who eat a low-fat diet are hungry all of the time.

    If you eat a low-fat diet, you tend to want to eat more, but the only things that you can eat that will make you feel full are things full of carbohydrates. Eat enough of those to feel full, and you will end up with a lot of excess fat on your body unless you exercise like a demon.

    Eat lots of fat, you feel full, you eat less, and you don’t need to exercise to lose weight. Like Leon said, it’s basic biochemistry.

  38. Tushar, maybe ask the missus to read the ‘South Beach’ diet book first. It doesn’t really recommend the hard animal fats, but it does explain very clearly about adding extra oils to food, and breaks the linkage between arterial plaques and fat consumption. Basically, you should be adding more oil to your foods in order to head off carb cravings and remain satisfied. His book directly addresses the issues inherent with diabetes.

    Plus Dr. Agatston was already a rock-solid cardiologist and scientist. http://www.webmd.com/arthur-agatston

    So even though it sounds like a trendy diet (great marketing) it is actually scientifically sound. His subjects do add a small amount of grain and tubers back into their diets but apparently it is not enough to harm their quantitative health scores with respect to diabetes and heart disease.

  39. You should still exercise, because you’re human. Load bearing stuff, though. Cardio is for fat people and skinny-fat people.

  40. FWIW, Tush, diabetes is an auto-immune disease, and genetics appear to play a much larger role than diet for most people. Also, there is at least one study out there – which took its data from a VERY large group of people being followed for heart disease – that found that drinking as little as one artificially sweetened drink per week raised the risk of developing diabetes by almost 67%. There was NO correlation found between diabetes and sugar-sweetened drinks (no matter how many they drank each week).

    Mr. TiFW’s family has diabetes in it; he quit drinking diet drinks and his blood sugar level dropped 13 points.

    There is NO diabetes on either side of my family; I drink Coke like it’s going out of style, and my blood sugar levels were never close to diabetic range.

    One month after I started on low-dose steroids (to slow the progression of the Myasthenia), my numbers hopped into pre-diabetic levels.

    Turns out there is a phenomenon well-known to doctors as “Steroid-induced diabetes”, which is brought about from the effects of steroids suppressing the body’s immune system.

  41. I got back on the program several weeks ago (got lazy during the holidays and stayed laze until I felt the weight creeping back up). I’m past the carb cravings and the weight’s coming off again.

    I don’t adhere strictly to the South Beach program but it’s pretty much the basis for what I do. I’m not as nitpicky about animal fats.

    When I do this my blood numbers all move to the optimal ranges. I take nothing for cholesterol. If I’m eating carbs it’ll be 280. When I’m not it’s 170-180.

  42. Yeah, I take 2-3 packets of Splenda everyday. With my coffee/tea. Will have to stop that

  43. Drinking calories is almost always a bad idea. But then, so is eating or drinking exclusively for entertainment.

  44. After too many bad experiences with spoiled creamer in my coffee I switched to black coffee. It took a while but now I prefer it to cream and sugar.

  45. My bitches (honeybees) make honey for my tea.

  46. And you’ve met me and Mr. TiFW, Tush. I had a heart “scare” a couple of years ago and had an arteriogram done – anyone who looks at me would immediately think, “There’s a heart attack waiting to happen”. My arteries are completely clear – not a speck of plaque on them.

    Mr. TiFW has plaque on one of his arteries (less than 50%); the rest of them are clear.

  47. Jimbro, I use a stick blender to pulse unsalted butter into my coffee sometimes.

    Dericious.

  48. I bet that would be good with chai tea too. How much butter do you add to how much coffee?

  49. Putting extra oil on food is such a bedrock family habit on my mother’s side. For years I thought it was terribly unhealthy. It felt really nice to get that practice back and know that it was actually a good thing to do. I drip it on everything again now.

    The last time my mother was in Italy (almost twenty years ago), she saw a commercial on TV for Philadelphia cream cheese, which was at the time a rather unknown American product there.

    In the commercial, they show a brick of cream cheese in an attractive presentation, with oil being slo-o-owly drizzled across the top of it, the way any food product would be made to appear immensely palatable to an Italian viewer. She said she had to laugh, knowing how that would go over so badly in the US.

  50. The cholesterol NUMBER by itself is useless as a metric. The only ratio that has ever been found to be “predictive” of heart disease is the Triglyceride/HDL ratio. Anything below 4 means your risk of heart disease is relatively low; closer to 2, and your risk is practically non-existent.

    Doesn’t matter how high either one of those numbers is; what matters is the ratio of one to the other. My “raw” numbers give my doctor conniptions; my ratios, though, are consistently between 2-3.

  51. 1-2 Tbls in a 12 ounce mug, about as much as I’d use of half-n-half. Get some grassfed butter like Kerrygold. Easiest thing is drop the butter in the bottom, then pour in about a quarter of the coffee/tea and blend that in, then fill the mug. Otherwise it can get splashy.

    The large Animosity Internationaltm mugs are perfect for this.

  52. Ok, alcohol: I am a rare drinker. Maybe one a month or every two months. But when I drink, I can drink. Half a bottle of scotch last friday. Now I will probably drink again in June.
    Si, is alcohol healthy? Unhealthy? A small drink a day? Red wine?

  53. FWIW, a cup of cream has the same number of carbs in it as 1/2 a cup of cooked carrots.

    So there, Mom!

  54. In moderate amounts, alcohol is fine, Tush. Spirits tend to be better than non-distilled alcohol (beer). There’s a reason for that, but it involves a word which I will not mention here….

  55. I wouldn’t drink for the first 30 days if you can help it. Also, if you’re in ketosis you will be a lightweight/cheap date, so when you do drink again, for the love of Heaven please pace yourself. I weigh ~180# and I get drunk on two shots. If you’re going to drink, clear liquor and spirits have the least number of carbs, or dry wines like claret. Beer is basically bread in a glass, so I’d skip it, certainly to start with.

  56. I aim for consistency myself Tushar. One drink per day about 4 to 5 times a week. I drink what I like which usually means beer or a bourbon/scotch.

  57. Mmmm….liquid bread.

  58. Don’t listen to Oso, she’s already drunk.

  59. Apologies if this has already been posted, but it is so full of awesome, I’m poating it again.

  60. Hahaha. I’m not, but I did already have my 1st Coke Zero for the day. HS that is the most awesome thing ever. I couldn’t stop laughing.

  61. I’d hire 3 guys from Larry Tech before hiring one guy from Harvard.

    Heh. My dad, back when he was still VP of a software company, refused to hire ivy League and Michigan grads. He found them to be insufferable dicks who over-estimated their value and skills and who were resistant to established policies and procedures. Basically, they were negative disruptors.

  62. I’m a Michigan grad with an inferiority complex. I must be doing something wrong.

  63. HotBride is a peach. We sat down to watch Game of Thrones last night, and she did not divulge the spoiler she had heard about at work yesterday.

  64. High intensity cardio is good for you, I don’t care what Leon says.

    Low intensity/ gym rat machines not so much.

    Running will help you lose weight, period. which is why bodybuilders don’t do it.

    I can wipe the floor of most people half my age (whether it’s endurance at work/physical job or working out) , and I’d say it’s the cross training I do.

  65. Just had the yummiest salad. Spinach and romaine, turkey, a variety of nuts and just a few raisins for variety. Balsamic and olive oil.

    STAY ON TARGET

  66. HAHAHAHA that reaction from the Phillies fans is priceless.

  67. Cardio — if you must — should be long and light (walking) or short and very hard (HIIT). Long and hard (SYWM) is a recipe for high cortisol, and short and light isn’t worth doing.

  68. I don’t even eat lettuce any more, Carin. I use spinach for all my salads and in place of lettuce on my burgers. I also bought a 4# box of dried cherries at Meijer’s a few weeks ago – man, they sure help out salads a LOT. I keep a big bag of walnuts and a container of crumbled bleu cheese around, too, for variety. Because I do karate in the evening and go to bed relatively early (usually), I can’t eat a big meal later in the day – it either spoils my workout if I eat before karate or I end up going to bed on a full stomach, which just sucks; so, I tend to eat salads and the like at night and a fuller meal at lunch.

    What about Super High Intensity Training (SHIT) ?

  71. This guy is a Swede, so he’s a big gov type, but his science and recommendations are great.

    Did you see the movie short he wants people to watch? From the makers of ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ – Laurie David – Clinton makes a cameo.

    The comments weren’t so impressed.

  72. I love spinach, but I do use a mix. All spinach, all the time … it too much.

  73. After too many bad experiences with spoiled creamer in my coffee I switched to black coffee. It took a while but now I prefer it to cream and sugar.

    I LOVE coffee, but the acid makes my stomach really, really sour. I’ve had to switch to tea. It’s not the same, but I do enjoy going to the tea shops and experimenting with different kinds of tea. The flavor of loose teas is sooo far superior to the bagged stuff, the difference is quite stark once one commits to putting the effort into finding the good stuff.

  74. His commentariate is largely American, and he’s a European upper-class type, so that’s common. He’ll say “we should ban soda!” and the comments will be mostly “WTF? I’d settle for just not subsidizing it, banning things is for fascists and assholes”.

  75. Crossfit is usually short and (very) hard. the long runs are mostly for fun.

    Bootcamps usually adhere to the short and hard philosophy. That alone does NOT get it done, but then I’m of the opinion that one strategy alone doesn’t get it done anyway.

    Weightlifting alone – you’ll see big guys who I doubt could walk up a steep hill. Cardio (biking especially) alone? I bet I could break those folk’s legs with an easy kick. And of course, there is the reality that many, if not most, cardio people aren’t getting their heart rate up high enough anyway. If you can hold a conversation, you’re not working hard enough

    It just depends what you’re going for.

  76. The guy leading the spin class on Saturday was complaining that the chainsaw he bought was kinda heavy.

    My point.

  77. Since we’re speaking diet….I must have intestinal spring pollen disorder. Throughout most of fall and all of winter, I have to do salads every night, along with the veggies to keep things working. (..since I can’t enjoy butter or coconut, drizzled with olive oil)
    Soon as spring gets here, BLAM, cramps/bloating. Something is not meshing with something. Every. Spring.
    I was tested for basic food allergies/gluten last summer. Nada.

  78. Weird. There is NOTHING different you do, I’m assuming. Nothing else. I wonder if it could be that the veggies are coming from a different location come spring?

    Only one way to know for sure……………..

  80. No way can I do crackfat, I’m so out of shape. I’ve probably gained 20 pounds since last year. So I try to do 20 minutes on the elliptical or a 2-3 mile walk 4 – 5x week. If the husband goes with me, I’m sucking air like my lungs are going to come up. (his legs are a lot longer)

  81. I wonder if it could be that the veggies are coming from a different location come spring?

    I’ve been wondering the same thing. I rinse everything thoroughly before eating/cooking. It is very annoying.

  82. I don’t think washing would make a difference, because it may be something that grows IN it, from the soil.

  83. You don’t have to do crackfat. Any bit of crosstraining. Throw in some pushups and pullups. try to do a bit of sprinting during that walk .

  84. That, or the pollen gets swallowed and that is irritating the gut. Or maybe I do have a sensitivity to some foods and the pollens are bringing me past my tolerance level faster.
    I remember Dr. Weil talking about such things.
    *makes note to search the bookcase to see if I still have his book*

  85. Don’t tempt me pepe.

    The folks at spin are nice. But they do NOT cross train. Their calves … like chickens.

  86. Ok, did both my boy’s taxes and neither owe, so don’t need to file today.

    One didn’t make enough. The other overpaid. I just wanted to double check.

    Reejis on a pony, though, who the fuck writes the instructions for the forms? Are we outsourcing that job to Indian as well?

    ENGLISH MOTHERFOCKER? DO YOU SPEAK IT?

  87. Pushups, yes. Pullups, no way in hell. Even when I was in shape, I could never do a pullup.
    I try to plank…*snort*…and I have a few weights.

  88. Reading the insturctions on the IRS forms makes me want to go choke a bitch lawyer.

  89. Pullups are very, very hard. I don’t mean to do them like a Marine. There are many assisted pull ups you can do that will give you benefits. You can use, basically, a giant rubber band. Or, you could use a chair to give you a bit of a leg-up. At crackfat, we do jumping pullups – you can use the “jump” to get you up there.

    You work your way up that way.

  91. Reejis on a pony, though, who the fuck writes the instructions for the forms? Are we outsourcing that job to Indian as well?

    Looks like your sons outsourced it to their mom.

  92. I could probably do a pullup if I jump. Never thought that was an option.

    Here, leon and carin, look at his pyramid. Discuss. His recommended servings a day is way more than I eat. And I don’t see beef/pork. Granted he’s pushing it ‘anti-inflammatory’.

  93. Hotpsur, I am going to teach them how to do it. It’s hard, though, when I’m at work when they’re at home. Matt was gone all week in florida. Just bad planning on my part.

  94. I would love to eat more wild salmon, but the store doesn’t carry it or when they do, it’s very very expensive. Guess I’ll have to move to Alaska.

  95. Of course it’s an option. There are lots of ways you can assist a pullup and get benefits. You can just hang from the bar to start – just back sure you are engaging your shoulders, and now hanging with your shoulders out of alignment.

  96. My sister and her friends are having fits over common core math. (my nephew is 8). Even her teacher friend is in knots.

  97. >>Reejis on a pony, though, who the fuck writes the instructions for the forms? Are we outsourcing that job to Indian as well?

    >>ENGLISH MOTHERFOCKER? DO YOU SPEAK IT?

    For countries where English is not a native language, is is not easy to find better English speakers than India. Maybe Netherlands, but they are not clamoring for outsourced jobs.

    But the lowest bidders generally don’t employ the best English speakers.

  98. Obviously his periods as way too much grains/pasta/legums. It’s almost the bottom of the pyramid . Also, too much fruit.

    Yea, I don’t agree with his pyramid at all. No red meat – it’s under “other sources of protein”, but it says “lean” meats.

  99. Tushar, I’m more apt to blame it on lawyer-ese than Indians.

  100. periods= pyramids.

  101. Just pulling your chain, Car in. You’re a great mom.

  102. Guess! Guess who has skin thinner than rice paper!

    Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year.
    * * *
    “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him. I said that I did not think that he was offended and that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”

    Chief posted on FB that he had no idea why his hip hurt so much. I responded that we have no idea either. Maybe it’s prostate cancer.

    It freaked out one on his friends.

  104. Private Pyle, do you mean to tell me you can’t do ONE pullup?

    A man is facing charges after deputies say he was flying a video camera-equipped drone that hindered the landing of a medical helicopter at an accident scene.

    Kele Stanley, of Springfield, said he’s been unfairly charged and would have landed it immediately if he knew the medical helicopter was en route.

    “I’m not an idiot,” he said.

    A new Citizens United Political Victory Fund poll shows that Republican Arizona voters have had it with Sen. John McCain, even though the senator has signaled his intentions to run for a sixth term in 2016.
    According to the poll, 64.2 percent of likely GOP primary voters said that they are ready for someone new to take the job and only 29.3 percent signaled a willingness to re-elect McCain.

  113. Hey, Hotspur – any word on the Mystery Pooper yet? Did the stakeout yield any results?

  114. Just try it:

    A Florida high school wants to set a dress code for parents….

    “We have dads showing up in sagging pants,” Osgood said, according to the Sun Sentinel. “It’s hard for me to tell a child not to show up for school with hair curlers, pajamas or short shorts if they see parents wearing them. Parents need to lead by example.”

    I’d LOVE to see the board try this.

  115. No word on the Poopmeister yet.

  116. Klavan gets it:

    A fascinating article by Francis Wilkinson appeared in Bloomberg View last week (h/t Instapundit). Wilkinson detailed the fact that income inequality between whites and blacks is worse in leftist cities…

    In his article Bloomberg View, Wilkinson wrote:

    Mathew Kahn, an economist at UCLA, e-mailed, “Educated liberals are tolerant people who are willing to live in racially integrated areas even if the minority neighbors are poor. Such liberals are more willing to vote for redistributionist policies and this may attract poor people to collect such transfers.”

    Yeah, that must be it. You lefties are just so tolerant, you move right in next to poor black people and then they flock to be around you because of your vast generosity! Of course! Why didn’t I think of that?

    I’m not gonna totally rip him off. More at the link.

  117. His recommended servings a day is way more than I eat. And I don’t see beef/pork. Granted he’s pushing it ‘anti-inflammatory’.

    Beef is about the least inflammatory food there is, so I call BS. If someone were worried about food sensitivities, red meat (preferably from grass-fed and grass-finished cattle) and water is the starting point for an elimination diet.

  120. The EPA has a problem:

    In a stunning admission, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy revealed to House Science, Space and Technology Committee chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) that the agency neither possesses, nor can produce, all of the scientific data used to justify the rules and regulations they have imposed on Americans via the Clean Air Act. In short, science has been trumped by the radical environmentalist agenda.

  121. Beasn, have you tried getting veggies somewhere else, like an organic place?

    I am thinking that your spring vegetables might come from a country that uses a pesticide that doesn’t agree with you.

  122. Scott, I don’t buy it if it is labeled from another country. All of what I buy and consume is marked ‘USA’. Sometimes I might get tomatoes marked ‘Mexico’ but it’s been awhile.

  123. God, Sociology is such a bullshit field of study. I hate that the university is making me pay for being subjected to this pointless and irritating crap.

  124. Have you been tested for other allergens, Beasn? Not sure if an allergy test would catch every pollen out there, but perhaps something blooms in spring that disagrees with your system, and breathing it in is what sets off your GI issues.

    Not sure what you could do to remedy that, other than allergy shots.

  125. Paula had to take a music appreciation class last summer as part of her requirements. This, in the last year of a nursing degree. It made her cranky. It was online so we all had to listen to classical music examples for hours on end.

  126. God, Sociology is such a bullshit field of study.

    I have a degree in mathematics, and my mother had a MSW. I’ve hurt her feelings severely on many occasions with my lack of respect and harsh criticism for social studies. Social sciences are not areas of study that I hold in high esteem.

  127. Teresa, I was tested years ago and am allergic to many pollens/molds.
    I’m not losing weight over it and I figure if most of what I eat stays in long enough to absorb some nutrients, I’m good. It’s just very annoying.

  128. I hate that the university is making me pay for being subjected to this pointless and irritating crap.

    Seriously. It’s a flipping scam as in it’s a real scam as opposed to H2 scam humor.

  129. The daughter just phoned to tell me that her scholarship money ends with her undergraduate degree. Rats. She looked into available grad school scholarship and it seems she can get her tuition paid for if she can get a grad asst. position. Problem is, if she got one, she can’t keep her other campus job because of………….obamacare.

    She always gives me shit for bringing up ‘politics’ and I always tell her she better pay attention to it because it will affect her. Guess she is learning some more, that she better listen to her momma. (she should know this by her not being able to get more hours at her summer job)

  130. I was tested too and I am allergic to Sociology and all grievance studies.

    Wait, I may have confused two topics of conversation.

  131. Sociology is not science.

  132. >> God, Sociology is such a bullshit field of study.

    I don’t know how you stand it. I went back to school at 27, got all the liberal arts nonsense done years earlier. I think I had to take one music appreciation class.

    Because all computer science graduates better fucking appreciate music.

  133. When my son was in college, he had the option of taking sociology crap or a science fiction class, for an elective. He went sci. fi.

  134. -ologies based on subjective interpretation are not science.

  135. Except for Western classical and sone esoteric Indian classical music, the only thing about music I appreciate is the mute button.

  136. If a subject’s name has the word Science in it, it ain’t science.

  139. From the “I hate me for my skin color” files:

    A school-wide questionnaire at Western Washington University (WWU) asked the community “How do we make sure that in future years ‘we are not as white as we are today?’”

    The question, released through the communications and marketing department’s daily newsletter Western Today, comes on the heels of admonishments given in multiple convocation addresses by WWU President Bruce Shepard for the university’s “failure” to be less white.

    “In the decades ahead, should we be as white as we are today, we will be relentlessly driven toward mediocrity; or, become a sad shadow of our current self.”

    “Every year, from this stage and at this time, you have heard me say that, if in decades ahead, we are as white as we are today, we will have failed as university,” Shepard said in the 2012 speech.

  140. Hah, Beasn, your comment made me remember a sci-fi course I took in college. It was a night class and I got to read some classic books in the genre although all I remember now is “Stranger in a Strange Land” by Heinlein and some Margaret Atwood book…Handmaid’s Tale maybe.

  141. I think that solves my garlic mystery.

  142. Thanks scott. I bookmarked that. That is what Dr. Weil talked about. He said to avoid eating …say…apples during birch pollination season. If I followed all of it, I wouldn’t have anything to eat. I’ll just have to write down what I’m eating and compare it to pollen counts.

  143. And now a word from my good friend, international film and television star, Nick Searcy.

    “OK, I put my ass on the line for this movie. Let’s get some donations rolling in. That way, not only will we get the movie made — It will make me look REALLY POWERFUL. Get on it, people!”

    Help us by donating what you can to get the movie about serial baby killer, Kermit Gosnell, made, since the media refuses to touch it.

  144. Great read, Scott.

  145. An antihistamine might help too.

    Much better article, it explains my garlic reaction.

  146. It also explains why bananas make my throat scratchy.

  147. UGH…can someone take the #t=19 off my link.

    If you can’t, this starts at the beginning.

  148. I can’t take antihistamines.

  149. Only thing I take away from Scott’s Mayo clinic link is the correlation between eating certain fruits and vegetables and exercising. *Vows to never exercise. Cuts back on fruits and veggies. Later, taters. Gotta go to work.

  150. I’ve never heard about that pollen-food allergy connection. They may have mentioned it briefly back in med school but that was a long time ago and I might have been napping in the class. I’ve always shrugged my shoulders with food allergies listed on history forms. That actually puts in better context.

  151. I had a basic food panel done last summer. It seems, by themselves, that I’m not allergic to them….apples, bananas, peaches, peanuts, etc.

    When I had the broad one of pollens done years ago, the biggest reaction I had was from ash, grass, ragweed, mold. Those welts took days to go down.

  152. oso, my sister has exercise induced asthma. Nothing to do with veggies.

  153. Ragweed, oak, grass and mold were my worst, but I am pretty much allergic to all pollen.

    So happy to have finally figured this out.

    Teresa, thank you for bringing that up and putting me on the right path.

  154. Aw shucks, Scott – I was just tossing stuff out there. Thanks for the link to that article!

    No shit. When I was taking the mandated sociology course, the prof spent 30 minutes extolling the virtues of “The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King”. When it came time to read the I Have a Dream speech, who did he pick? The one black guy in the class. Evidently he had missed the whole point of the speech………….

  169. Obama makes a bet with Putin:

  170. Last year, Mr. RFH hired a company that, in theory, specializes in moving the elderly along with a consignment shop. The idea is that when Mom and Dad move into assisted living, they do the moving and sell the furniture ‘n shit no one wants. First clue that these people were stupid was after Mr. RFH walked with the lady through the house, noting things to be sold on consignment. None of that was kept, it ALL went in the dumpster except for a few pieces of furniture. Cameras, printer, kitchen items, collectables, all of it is in a landfill somewhere. If we had known, we would have eBayed them, but we understood that was their job. Every now and then, they do sell a piece of furniture, and Mr. RFH gets a check.

    Fast forward a year. We get an email saying that the most recent consignment check came back and would we please send them a new address. THEY FUCKING MAILED IT TO THE HOUSE THEY CLEANED OUT TO THE WALLS.

    Boo-fucking-hoo.

    Even dual-income professional couples are being priced out of the walkable urban-core neighborhoods where many of them want to live.

    Well I guess you better settle for something less perfect, eh? Kind of like how I’m being priced out of the supermodel blowjobs that I want every day. I guess you won’t get to live your urban-chic fantasy like the douchbags you see on television sitcoms. I guess you have to settle out in the hinterlands with the rest of the proles.

    Arturo Breton, a 37-year-old waiter in Miami Beach, said that after years living on his own, he was joining forces with a roommate who works as a manager at J. C. Penney. “I’ve come down to the conclusion that in this country, it’s easier for two people to pay the rent than for one person,” he said.

    If you’re a 37-year-old waiter in Miami Beach, you made bad life decisions long before you reached this point. And yes, it is easier for two people to pay the rent than just one person. It’s why young adults traditionally marry and settle down. Well, that and the fact that they were mature adults, something that this dipshit has failed to achieve.

    reading the main story504Comments
    But a seemingly insatiable demand for luxury condos in Miami, created in part by wealthy Latin Americans, has caused land prices to soar, making affordable housing projects harder to build anywhere close to downtown. Moving farther out is cheaper, but the cost savings on housing can be quickly wiped out by transportation costs. A 2012 study by the Center for Housing Policy found that Miami was the most expensive metropolitan area in the country when housing and transportation costs were combined.

    Gee, which party continually pushes to raise gasoline taxes and taxes on other fuels? Which party supported “cash for clunkers” wiping out the used car market?

  173. Are you sure they aren’t a front for a government operation Roamy?

  174. I argued my way out of an Asian studies requirement.

    The LA department wasn’t sure that a history course on India qualified as Asian.

  178. Even dual-income professional couples are being priced out of the walkable urban-core neighborhoods where many of them want to live.

    Here’s a heads-up for these whiny crybabies – if you want to be able to afford to live in one of these “walkable, urban-core neighborhoods”, YOU have to be the urban pioneers.

    That means buying a property in a less-than-ideal neighborhood, convincing like-minded people to move there also, then taking steps to improve the neighborhood year by year.

    We sure as heck couldn’t live in the neighborhood we’re in now if we were purchasing a home right now – we bought a house that we loved when nobody wanted to live here and worked our tails off to get the riff-raff out.

    Now all of the effete urbanites are moving in and casting a condescending eye on all of us old-timers.

    Newsflash, sweeties: we were tough enough to start out here; lightweights like you don’t scare us…..

    In the same vein as not hiring Harvard, I would never hire an MIT grad. I’ve worked with three of them. One was decent but full of himself. The other two were quota queens and crappy engineers.

    Sounds like these fags need to be abandoned by folks representing the real deal. Or the protestant work ethic. Whatever.

    Glad the radio gig is still kicking. Are they paying you yet?

  254. There was one female client who prosecutors decided not to charge

    from leon’s link:

    “There was one female client who prosecutors decided not to charge”

    #WaronWomen

  255. Never approach Pupster from the wrong end.

  256. Also from leon’s link:

    “The former single mother….”

    ????

  257. Ya know, wiser, this now frees you up to teach a Zumba class.

  258. “There was one female client who prosecutors decided not to charge”

    Yeah – that got edited. It originally read, “There was one female client who prosecutors decided not to charge because the recorded encounter was so, so fucking hot.”

  259. Glad the radio gig is still kicking. Are they paying you yet?

    Interesting that you ask.

    I made about $1k from the station last year.

    Got a 1099 and filed it with my taxes, as any good, law-abiding citizen should do.

    As I was completing my taxes on-line, I was asked what I did to earn that money and then if I planned to earn money doing the same thing this year.

    I answered “Yes.”

    Which means I was not only taxed on the money, but I was also hit with a $75 “self-owned business” fee over and above the taxes I owed.

  260. Also from leon’s link:
    “The former single mother….”
    ????

    She not a mother anymore. They call her ‘Susan Smith.’

  261. Ya know, wiser, this now frees you up to teach a Zumba class.

    *searches Pink Floyd discography for good workout tunes…..

  262. Which means I was not only taxed on the money, but I was also hit with a $75 “self-owned business” fee over and above the taxes I owed.

    Careful With That Axe, Eugene…..

  276. WYWH is my favorite PF album, although Animals plays really nicely, too.

  277. Take all the time you need honey

  279. Hola, glitches.

    Dinner was good. Cuz I cooked it.

    Welcome to the Machine.

  282. I wish I wasn’t such a pig…

  283. Could’ve been worse.

    Could be Q of the SA.

    ANd shit.

  284. Nah, PG, we didn’t have a cat to drown to imitate the noise.

  285. Welcome to the Machine.

    http://is.gd/7HjqWN

  286. I wish I wasn’t such a pig

    I simply love that song. It’s sublime.

  287. This version is my new favorite, Jazz:

  288. Cyn, you’re not diggin me tonight.

    I understand. Chicks do that.

    Whew.. school nite gang. Peace out.

  289. Here’s where it’s at. It all starts here.

  290. Can you feel the burn??

    LET ME HEAR IT, PEOPLE!!!!!

  291. Can’t we go back to gardening, and workout, and pollen?

  292. *resists clicking each and every one of all your links*

    Arctic Monkeys are ruling my roost at the moment.

  293. Peace out, Davo

  294. Can’t we go back to gardening, and workout, and pollen?

    Kicks xbrad square in the inflatable.

  295. Wow, #42 sure had a good day at the ballpark, didn’t he?

  296. Heh- J’Ames, I had “Echoes” queued. Not that version, but great minds and all…. ;-)

  297. Come on, everybody! No slacking allowed!!!

    HEY! YOU!!! OUT THERE IN THE COLD!!! GETTING LONELY? GETTING OLD? CAN YOU FEEL ME???

  298. LET ME HEAR IT, PEOPLE!!!!!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAydj4OJnwQ

    Ok, dammit, this one is tolerable, but ONLY because she has such a magnificent voice. BUT THAT’S ALL.

  299. I wouldn’t admit this anywhre but with you fags but……..I’ve got tickets to see Brit Floyd on 5/21 at the local opry house. It’s on the fucking calendar. Ya gotta keep something on the calendar to keep yourselfe sane in this world.

  300. You ever watch “Live at Pompeii,” J’Ames? I thoroughly enjoy that footage. The outtakes are freakin’ great. I love watching Gilmour fool around with the tunes.

  301. COME ON, PEOPLE!!! MAKE SOME NOISE!!!!!

    I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!!!!

    SERIOUSLY, IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE???

  302. I’ve watched parts of it, Jazz.

    I’d watch that, PG.

  303. Ok, dammit, this one is tolerable, but ONLY because she has such a magnificent voice. BUT THAT’S ALL.

    Homegirl goes by the name of something Detroit. Not her real name but she went by it cause she was from Detroit. Can’t seem to find the info on g.string and shit. But I’ll agree. She’s got a fabulous set of pipes.

  304. I wouldn’t admit this anywhre but with you fags but……..I’ve got tickets to see Brit Floyd on 5/21 at the local opry house.

    PG, they put on an amazing show.

    I saw them with wiserson last year.

    took this video:

    and this:

  305. Homegirl goes by the name of something Detroit.

    Claire Torrey.

    Took her about 30 years to get credit for that piece.

  306. David Gilmour can really play and writes great songs that just happen to suck.

    Am I right?

  307. You ever watch “Live at Pompeii,”

    love. that. flick.

    Took me a few years to fully appreciate it, but now it is one of my all-time favorite “concert” flicks.

  308. I might have dreamed that shit. I can’t find anything on it. Either that or she pissed off the democrats and dissapeared.

  309. Am I right?

    Well… yeah….

    His solo stuff sucks.

  310. Rick Wright was just a badass.

  311. BTW, sad music news. Malcom Young has health issues, so AC/DC is hanging it up.

  312. Rick Wright was just a badass.

    Loved that guy. He always seemed to just enjoy himself. No pretensions and incredibly talented.

  313. Claire wondered after the session if she did ok.

    The guys were too whammed to say “uh.. yeah.”

    Nite for realz. Hey wiser, if I wind up in a fountain in five minutes I’m gonna be pissed again.

  314. love. that. flick.
    Took me a few years to fully appreciate it, but now it is one of my all-time favorite “concert” flicks.

    Yeah, me, too, wiser. It’s captivating – every time.

  315. Wiser, your vids make me look forward to this show even more than I was. Thanks. And shit.

  316. BTW, sad music news. Malcom Young has health issues, so AC/DC is hanging it up.

    Great comment by Angus:

    “I get really pissed when people say we put out 11 albums of the exact same song. We put out 12 albums of the same song!”

    (from memory. may not be the exact quote.)

  317. I was hoping to see AC/DC too. Damn.

  318. Hey wiser, if I wind up in a fountain in five minutes I’m gonna be pissed again.

    repetitive dreams of a similar nature are diagnostically consistent with dementia.

    Sleep well, buddy!

  319. Thanks. And shit.

    Do not yell “FREEBIRD!!!”

    Trust me.

  320. wiser, J’Ames, PG – if you haven’t watched this, it’s AWESOME.

    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xnain7_classic-albums-pink-floyd-the-making-of-the-dark-side-of-the-moon-dvb-xvid-mp3-mvgroup-forum_music

    Some really great Rick Wright footage in there, too. It’s a really, really, really good show.

  321. Great comment by Angus:
    “I get really pissed when people say we put out 11 albums of the exact same song. We put out 12 albums of the same song!”

    I was watching a retrospective on AC/DC. HILARIOUS; All the footage around their first album? Every one of those guys had terrible, terrible, terrible teeth, like Eastern Euromouth. FF about two years – perfect dental work, all of’m. Fame buys teeth!

  322. AC/DC is awesome in concert. My ears are still ringing.

  323. Some really great Rick Wright footage in there, too. It’s a really, really, really good show.

    dude… it’s like we are of one mind.

    I have that doc on DVD. Watch it every now and again.

    fascinating.

    Especially watching Roger continuously come across as a douche.

  324. I’ve got that one somewhere around here, jazz. Thanks!

  325. Oh, and Bon Scott was a tiny dude. I don’t know where that voice came from. He may have been channeling the undead or something. By looking at him, I’d never have imagined that voice coming out.

  326. Especially watching Roger continuously come across as a douche.

    Yeah, what a dickbag. I was blown away at his dickitude.

  327. They’ve done making of vids about The Wall, DSotM and WYWH.

    They never seem to be able to get Gilmour and Waters in the same room at the same time for them.

    And Rick just seems amused by it all.

    Although, this kicks ass!

    Guess they’re mellowing in their later years.

    I actually prefer Waters post-PF stuff to Gilmours. Even if he is an anti-semetic douche.

  328. I saw Waters’ The Wall show in KC. I was impressed with the intermission, which was a montage of fallen soldiers, done very tastefully.

    I was expecting the worst, but got the best.

    Plus the show was AWESOME! Only thing better would have been to see Gilmour in the show. That happened later in the tour.

  329. I was expecting the worst, but got the best.

    He does seem to dislike war……

  330. G’night boys

  331. Waters was such an incredible dick to Wright. I think Gilmour felt not just his own friction with Waters, but was also truly offended at how Waters was treating Wright (especially) and Mason.

  332. G’nite, Cyn. Didn’t mean to drive you off. :-(

  333. Night Cynnabuns!

  334. G’night boys

    Sorry.

    We’ll get right back to the exercise, weight-loss and gardening advice first thing in the morning.

    Promise.

  335. Waters was such an incredible dick to Wright.

    Gee… ya think he felt…. inferior to Rick?

  336. I love this.

  337. Seriously, wiser – you’re walking through my head.

  338. Sorry,
    Non-Floyd comment:
    This is pretty damn cool:

    http://themellowjihadi.com/2014/04/15/13-year-old-eagle-huntress/

    Totally different way of life.
    Folks living in a modern, connected, electronic world would not imagine things like this…

  339. I love the way he discusses how he suddenly remembered just the right chord.

  340. Didja ever see that clip of Gilmour saying that there’s music he would never play again after Rick Wright’s death? It’s quite something.

  341. Chispy…

    viola is getting shipped tomorrow.

    But if that one doesn’t satisfy your bride, perhaps this might:

    http://bit.ly/1p8HgNX

  342. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58KjyQWKr80

    That might be my favorite Wright clip ever, wiser.

  343. It’s quite something.

    wow. I’m amazed he was able to get through that, considering how close it was to Rick’s passing.

    There was an obvious love between the two of them.

    Heartbreaking,.

  344. That might be my favorite Wright clip ever, wiser.

    Considering you linked it originally, I can’t say I’m suprised.

    There’s not many artists deaths that have really hurt. The only two I can think of that ever really affected me are Wright’s and Harry Chapin’s.

  345. Wiserbabe,
    You’re shipping the Stradivari viola tomorrow?
    May God bless you, my friend.
    Be assured, we will take great care of it…

  346. Gilmour paid lovely tribute, and his struggle to get through was apparent. It’s a heartbreaking view, and it’s such a rare glimpse of the humanity of the people made these iconic works.

    My mind wanders, then, to think, “And, then there’s Waters….”

  347. May God bless you, my friend.

    You may want to check your credit score soon…..

  348. Wiser,
    Okay, now, I’m scared…

  349. My mind wanders, then, to think, “And, then there’s Waters….”

    heh.

    They did make some amazing music together.

    I’m sure the conflict had a lot to do with that.

    This has been fun, my friend.

    Catch up with you all again, when I can.

  350. Okay, now, I’m scared…

    Oh, no worries. I was just kidding…

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! WHAT CREDIT SCORE??!??!?!?

    BWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!!!!!!

  351. I’m gonna try to go to sleep. I may be back in a bit, but I hope not. Hope to see y’all tomorrow. Thanks for the fun, Floyd-ians. I’d love to spend an afternoon with y’all, a Floyd catalog, and a killer sound system (and a copy of “Live at Pompeii,” too).

  352. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    I hope I’m the first to bring this up….

    “If you’re going to follow a paleo diet, you ought to be eating bugs”

  353. How many points do you get for mealworms? hahahahah

  354. okay. to bed, for realz now

  355. Is AC/DC done….what the fuuuuuuuuuuuck?

    Despite all their drinking, drug use and sex with Mare they were supposed to live forever.

    * shakes fist at satan *

  356. I ate bugs during AF survival school. Grasshoppers were nasty.

    The only good tasting way to get protein out of insects is to scoop up a bunch of black ants, throw them in hot water, strain them out and then drink the ‘ant tea’.

    Tasted kinda lemony.

  357. I don’t like grubs or the freaking “Worm” in nasty tequila.

  358. Phat, those of us that are awake are chatting with Peej on facechimpdouche.

  359. Happy Birthday, Puppeh!

  360. You can see I’m single-minded, I know what I could be
    How’d you feel about it, come and take a derp with me?
    I’m looking for a partner, regardless of expense
    Think about it seriously, you know, it makes sense

  361. Why doesn’t Peej ever come around here? Did we run her off? Is she Pajama non Grata?

  362. http://instantrimshot.com/

  363. “rimshot” makes me clench.

  364. Peej is busy with life.

  365. Turn volume to eleventy

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5CgdTtGv8o#t=205

  366. Morning, children.

  367. Happy birthday, Pupster! unless facedouche is lying, then never mind.

  368. I found that video on 1/26/14 and emailed a link to Rosetta because I knew he would like it.

    He responded last night.

    E-mail….2.5 months…How can he do that?

  369. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_SHOE_THROWER_HILLARY_CLINTON?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2014-04-15-20-12-32

    Now they will offer her a deal. Confess to being a racist extreme reichwinger teabagger, and we would let you go lightly. Then we will use this for propaganda.

  370. Happy birthday Pupster! How many dog years and how many people years?

  371. Gimme a few minutes, and I’ll have HHD up.

  372. Wakey.

  373. Loved wiser’s workout last night. Ha ha ha.

  374. Pupster got old(er) again? Seems like that just happened…

    …maybe about a year ago.

  375. HHD is here!
