What is your philosophy of paleo based upon? It seems that many people try to figure out what cave men ate and eat the same things, or as close to it as they can. I see the cave man philosophy as a good theory that provides a base of how to... (more)

Grok [grok] "Do you feel like nobody groks you? Don't worry, Robert A. Heinlein does. In his 1961 best-selling science fiction novel, Stranger in a Strange Land, Heinlein coined the term to mean an understanding so thorough that "the observer... (more)

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.
