Re: "Why Growth Can't be Green" -- Article

The mindset of saving humans over the earth means its always unsustainable. We have the capacity to create waste that will outlive us a species. So no matter our reduction it will pile upon us until we suffocate.

Re: Entering Ketosis

This is my first week (month?) trying keto. Since I crockpot suet, lard and bacon by the lb some of it is liquid fat and the rest solid tallow. This makes my main meal highly varible in fat content, all saturated. If I eat too much my stomach churns a half hour later. The dead simple way to prevent ...

Everything Salt

We talk about the macro nutrients, fasting, probiotics, vitiamins ect. This thread is for salt. Many of you do HITT or endurance exercises. How do you know your body needs salt? What do you use to add to your diet? Do you add to excess and let the body flush out the unnecessary salt?

Re: Entering Ketosis

For those that are keeping track. What is your fat intake profile? Saturated, mono and poly. I'd estimate mine is 80-85/5-10/5-10. I feel like I shoud ditch coconut oil (I take a small swig if my meal seems light in fat) for another oil. This is considering that I crockpot 8oz suet or 24 oz bacon wi...

A card game for 2-5 players.

Dominion. Since you can have many combinations of the initial cards game play is greatly extended. It took me about 50 games to give people who owned it for two years a challenge.

Re: Pet Ownership

If humans are marrying less, there are more households and thus less people per household. Thus we can conclude there has been an increase of pets per person yet have pets per househild remain steady.

Re: Pet Ownership

So the percentage hasnt changed but costs have? I would venture that pet care has risen, pets are treated more like childern by empty nesters and food cost went au natureâl aka costlier. Not to mention Paris Hilton tea cup dogs (specialty dogs) will command a premium. If I ever get a dog it will be ...

Re: Backpacing/hitchhiking in South-East Europe

I used a Coleman Dual fuel for 45 days straight. The only fuel in 90% of my town stops was gasoline. I have a Nalogene (spelling?) spare tank, using both lasted 8-10 meals. I had a map so I always ended up 1km from water or ate my main meal there and reloaded 3L of water. I was up to 60 hours betwee...

Re: I hate birthdays

Its a celebration of "just because*". This does not appeal to INTXs, we get satisfaction from real achievements. Real achievements dont come on a regular schedule (or at all :p) which makes it seem like life has been muted to others. Birthdays , in the modern world, is a compromise between nothing a...

Re: Entering Ketosis

Always pour acid into water. Never the other way around. Now why is that since it's technically the same molecules meeting? Combining the two creates heat. Acid ( a viscous liquid ) sinks into water and that heat is readily absorbed by the water above. The other way around the water will sit on top...

Re: How much will you pay for college/have paid for you?

I received a half ride from college + $2000 state test scholarship. I dropped out after the third year ME. I got a one-way 180 mile ride from my brother using my parents vehicle. I resent the disparity of what my siblings got and I did. It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't the long term repercussions...

Re: Impacts of sex-robots / VR sex on society

If 20 years is close it will be 21 years before the robot is having more sex than it's "owner".


I see it tho. I see the same as 7wb5, people choosing to be single and creating a deficit on the other side. Another observation 7wb5 made was the dearth of ERE dating thread. We built our castle for one.

Re: Canada’s ‘Great Trail’ Is Finally Connected

I was on this trail between Muskoka and Gravenhurst. That part was completed around 95-98. When I was there in 2008-9 it was hardly there. My one of my best memory was two 2x6s laid across the swamp grass mounds. Another was an unusable park bench facing a frozen lake. I plan to go back. I might do ...
