I know I'm going way off topic, but I enjoy Keith Olbermann, he's articulate, perceptive, and unlike most liberal democrats, seems to have the ability to actually get MAD at the shit that should be making people MAD.

Watch this, and tell me what in the hell is going on in America:

https://youtu.be/D7d2ayLb2lg

What makes me mad as a liberal, is liberals defending people and ideologies that aim to take away the liberal rights I'm defending.

Is Olbermann one of these left wing regressive s too? (I don't have time to listen to him right now)

The one thing that Trump has going for him (although for all the wrong reasons) is that he at least acknowledges the problem with a certain ideology.

Can you imagine a democrat running on a platform that "America sucks?" Rush Limbaugh would choke on his fistful of oxycontin. They'd run them out of town, other democrats would purge them from their party. It's usually arch-conservatives like O'Reilly and Coulter that say liberals love to "blame America first". Am I wrong? How does the Republican candidate get away with saying that America is shit?

As an outsider, I've always thought of America as a movie, not as a country.

So what you need my friend is candidate that will do a reboot America loves reboots.

People are reacting to Trump as if he was Mao, Hitler and Stalin all-in-one.

The guy is an orange faced simpleton, but common.... this is just ridiculous. He hasn't actually done anything, yet. I didn't follow politics back in day - but did Dubya Bush have such a negative public image too? Because he really screwed things up.

And lets face it, the fact that Trump has gotten this far is just a reflection of the population (a big portion of it anyway). So when you think about it, Trump is the least of your worries - the 100 million supporters he has are what you should be worried about.

Like SouthPark puts it - it doesn't matter if you're voting for douche or turd face.

Either way it's not going to be good. Vote some independent in instead.

I don't usually get motion sickness or anything like that, but watching a few minutes of Gears of War 4 with that FoV just made me feel really nausea.

Up yours game. I bet it doesn't even have an FoV slider.


Also it looks boring.

The HUD-less mode is nice but it would put you at a disadvantage.

I'd totally play that way if there was a server that enforced the setting for all players, as well as friendly fire penalties.

Then people wouldn't be so fast to pull the trigger as soon as a something moves. I think it would make for a more interesting experience.

The head cardiologist in the US, Dr. Kim Williams is vegan for health reasons.
Given that heart-attacks kill one person every 8 seconds in the US, I'd say he knows what causes it how to avoid it

So no you definitely don't need milk, or saturated fat etc. (The only fats you need are omega 3, omega 6 and in quite small amounts).
How did they first find out about this? Because some poor girl lost her stomach in a shooting, so they had to feed her ingredients in a very specific way to keep her alive. Interesting story actually.

Soda and sweets and chips should be taxed like tobacco.

Yes, because all the taxes we already pay are used so wisely. Stupid idea. Away with your nanny state bullshit. People can make their own decisions about what they put in their mouth.

I wouldn't have a problem with people making bad choices for themselves. But I live in a country where my taxes are raised in order to pay for their treatments, so now they're now putting a burden on me, which I do have a problem with.


I'm sure you could have some kind of legislation that confines the tax money from "disease generating foods" so that it can only be used for health care. This way they are then at least pre-paying for their statistically likely future health treatments.

At the same time I would heavily subsidized unprocessed foods, to encourage people to purchase to them.

This way you can still eat your candy bar if you feel like it, but it's not longer viable as a staple.


Of course this will never happen because governments are only elected for 4 year terms, and so they rarely look for long term savings.

Dr. Atkins was right all these years; the found pyramid=sugars=blah

Atkins was totally wrong. He had a history of heart-disease because of his low carbohydrate and high fat(high cholesterol) diet, which eventually killed him.

(On his wiki it says he fell over and died due to hitting his head - but the reason he fell was because he was having a heart attack).

People have taken legal action against Atkins Foundation for giving them heart-disease.

And of course the Aktins Foundationhas tried to silence people through the legal system as well.

It's all outlined on this website:

And cracked is wrong replacing dairy with water. Dairy is essential - at least for those of us of northern european descent who still live in northern climes. For people in the sun belt who get plenty of exposure to sun and fresh veg year round, not so much.

No diary is not essential for you.
The Milk-Industrial Complex: Why You Don't Need to Drink Milk
and
Even MORE Studies Confirm, Calcium Still Doesn't Prevent Fractures

No, it is - for certain ethnicities and depending on where you live. Vitamin D, casein and whey proteins, are majorly important for a great many body fuctions. That's well known and accepted everywhere, except for kooks on Youtube who tell you don't need dairy. Rolleyes

Plenty of "kooks" who eat strictly vegan, don't need dairy and have no deficiencies whatsoever then... Rolleyes You can easily get all of those from elsewhere. A glass of almond "milk", among plenty others of easily availlable vegan examples, has 45% of the daily recommended intake in Vit. D.


I'm one of those "kooks". I started purely for health reasons, so needless to say I researched the shit out of it before I started

I rarely eat anything fortified, simply because it means it's a processed food, which I try to avoid, unless I'm really in the mood for it.

I have my blood checked on a yearly basis, and so far so good (2 years). I actually have better vitamin D levels now, because I consciously go spend 5-10 minutes a day in the sun with my face, arms, and if it's warm enough full upper body exposed. Of course not so much that I get burnt.

Most people including those that drink cows milk are deficient in vitamin D, as was I.

Now, a bit of sun easily gets me into the average range of between 25-50nmol/L. Of course peaking in summer and lower in winter.

Plenty of good info here, if you find nutrition interesting:
http://nutritionfacts.org/?fwp_search=vitamin+d&fwp_content_type=video


What I really found interesting though, was that in countries where people drink milk, they have higher rates of osteoporosis(weak bones). There is a correlation between them, so they looked into it, and measured how much calcium is in a glass of milk. And then measured how much calcium comes out in urine. The weird thing is that you pee out more calcium than what goes in, due to cows milk being quite acidic, and your body leaches calcium from your bones to neutralize the blood.

The trailer piqued my interest, but it looks a bit contrived. I'll give it a go, but there is something off about it.

VR has now effectively turned into the Wii. Just a sea of gimmicky mini games. Not a single solid game for traditional gamers.

I just really hope they add in co-op for the campaign. Not for my first play through, but definitely for my second time around. Make some poor decisions and allow my friends to help me out.

It's always bothered me in all games when they give you a few side A.I. sidekicks, but don't allow them to be replaced with real players.

Researchers cautiously optimistic about new brain-clearing Alzheimer’s drug.

The problems with drugs is that they always address the symptoms by blocking another function in the body (and all of the body's functions are mandatory for good health). The only time drugs are useful is when the disease is worse than the side effects of the drugs. Not exactly a good trade.

The prevention route is soooooooo much better, and the only side effects are healthy ones all round.
