Hi, a friend of mine asked me to research why humans shouldn't eat meat. So I've been reading and reading different stuff on the internet and I still can't understand why. I can't seem to find any good reason. So I want to understand so if someone... (more)

I'm blond-haired, blue-eyed and fair-skinned (with freckles--ugh). I've noticed that over the years, while I find men with similar features attractive, I'm also very attracted to men with pale skin, dark (almost black) hair and brown or blue eyes.... (more)

I'm definitely attracted to people that look different from me, but I feel like this was in part a learned response to who I myself attract! So who knows. I'm blue-eyed and blonde, and I disproportionately attract for whatever reason non-native... (more)

So I think Paleo has ruined me. I mean, I was annoying before (I've always been a cynical, skeptical SOB), but my friends and family may disown me at this point. And it's not just because of Paleo topics. I don't talk about that much anymore... (more)

What's normal? Eating tons of high fructose corn syrup? Taking a cab, or driving for anything further away than 3 blocks? Fooling yourself into thinking that a bowl of cheerios and a can of diet soda is a healthy breakfast, so as to enrich... (more)

While thinking along the lines of the human species as a whole, doesn't it make sense that death of a person after say... 30-35 years of age (after raising offspring) would be optimal? That a shorter lifespan would be optimal for our species as a... (more)
