Sissons is cool and all, but I fucking hate Grok. I guess this kinda lets him off the hook though, and I can start blaming a shit sci-fi author instead.

I think hacks is a good forum, but limited. I am wondering what is a quality high traffic site to promote new paleo projects? If it can make an impact in the paleo-sphere you should be able to discuss the ideas not JUST answer questions directly. (more)

Instead of living in a master plan community that surrounded a golf course, how about a farm instead? You could walk and get your raw dairy and fresh eggs. It sounds like a good idea to me.
