Re: How to make the next 5 years of hardcore accumulation really good ones?

brute recommends Olaz develop 2 separate personalities: serious, professional Olaz at work, and whatever else in private. the two should not mix.

Re: Neighborhood blockchain energy grid

brute is similarly skeptical. the problem blockchains (not "Blockchain") solve is not about smarter redistribution, it's a distributed trusted ledger. while both mesh grids (telco or electrical) and blockchains are decentralized, brute doesn't see how using them together would add any value over sim...

Re: 2016 Hottest Year on Record (Third Record Year in a Row)

what will campaign finance reform fix? the masses will just be pulled into another direction, that's not necessarily better.

brute thinks a)it's never going to be reformed and b)it wouldn't make anything better, unless by accident.

Re: Quitting Sugar?

@Brute. Totally fair. No one knows what works for you except you. I'm just pointing out that it's odd to rage against the medical establishment but confidently cite dubious characters like Taubes, Teicholz, and the Fiber Menace Guy. brute doesn't rely on the magical authority of these humans, but h...

Re: Can one control one's thoughts?

brute has a similar thing with code. he doesn't consciously "think" about how it works, it's a bit like feeling legos, and knowing how they fit together or why they won't. maybe these types of intuitions develop in any field where enough time is spent. brute also remembers having "spidey sense" for ...

@Smashter brute is not interested in "takedowns" or "debunkings". scientists have proven so untrustworthy in this field that brute only trusts things he tried out himself. there are thousands of "debunkings" and "research" on the dangers of saturated fat and the benefits of complex carbs out there, ...

Re: Steps to detoxify from toxic chemicals?

Neither is replacing a plastic bottle with a metal one. Why take the chance if alternatives already exist? brute knows humans that refuse to drink out of aluminum bottles because they say it leaches into their water. steel rusts. most other metals tarnish. maybe Olaz could look into gold or titaniu...

Not really, it's full of fibre which slows the digestion and hence lowers the glycemic impact.
fiber is bad too. lowering GI is the only good thing about it.

as for meeting in a safe place: the standard first date for a person you meet online is either coffee or a drink.

Re: Being misunderstood while trying to be ERE/ Finding a partner

brute, I've always been curious about what it is you do for fun? How are you able to cut yourself off from the rest of society? mostly hedonism. it's not that brute "is able" to cut himself off, he just seems to not have a very strong desire to be social. he's slowly learned to accept this fact abo...

@Smashter. I'm not demonizing carbs. I'm demonizing too much of any one thing. Notice I said "lots." "lots" isn't that much for the majority of humans that aren't physical laborers. if humans are pre-diabetic or fat, it's highly likely caused by chronically overeating carbs vs. their own personal t...

Re: "What the Health"

Once one concerns themselves not to eat crap, the gains plateau. while a popular sentiment, brute's experience is contrary to this idea. the whole idea of "clean eating", "non-processed food" or "eating real food" is a red herring, a bit like veganism. while it's certainly possible to eat a healthy...
