If it is number one, what is number two? (besides email and your primary news source)
I used to, but frankly am disappointed with the quality of some of the Q&A's here. I don't understand how some questions - what is our favorite Paleo comic strip, what is our favorite Paleo song or favorite Paleo quote, whether smoking pot is Paleo - have to do with figuring out how to eat and live well and avoid the traps of industrial foods and industrial ways of living. I also find some of the health claims here wild, at least when written with such confidence and surety - telling people with absolute confidence that if they eat a certain way they will surely live a long and healthy life, that every malady from eye pressure to baldness and many others will be cured. Paleo does not heal every ailment.
To me, Paleo is about eating and living in such a way so as to not damage our bodies with industrial food and other hazards. It's true that when we stop putting damaging crap into our bodies they often do amazing things to heal themselves. If I drink arsenic and then stop drinking arsenic, my health will improve. But that doesn't mean if I start drinking Kool-Aid instead of arsenic the Kool-Aid will "heal" me from anything. It means that stopping drinking dangerous crap was bad for me, and now I will improve. Industrial food is, to a lesser extent, poison to our bodies.
I know I will get blasted and downoted for sharing these thoughts, but it just seems to me some of this is veering into downright silliness.
Yes (!) and it's kind of come on strong and fast like a bad spring flu. There's a lot of stuff to be learned here and I'm a bit of an information junkie, particularly when it comes to "personal experience testimony" - because i very much prefer to connect my own dots.
I also dig Pinterest, which is purely visual and largely design oriented, also with a random element that I enjoy.
I'm also spying on Seattle's weather through the Space Needles webcam, because we're planning on moving there, and because spying on a city through a webcam makes me feel a bit like a supervillain (my cat never leaves my lap, so why not?)
I have been on here a lot lately. PH is my most visited site on my Chrome homepage, which perpetuates things because I open it up again every time I sit down with my computer before getting to what was actually intended in the first place.
It's getting so bad, that when I'm on other forums I move my mouse to the left of a post looking for a vote button. I think I subconsciously did that on my iTunes yesterday too.
If I start dreaming about PaleoHacks, I'll give myself an intervention.
On a slow day, it's Paleo Hacks for sure, then Television Without Pity.
On a busy day, it's gmail because I have to at least check my email or it drives me crazy.
I'm also on Livestrong a lot, but not actively, it's always open but once I put in my food I'm done for the day.
No, not really.
Most of my time is spent in my RSS aggregator - Google Reader (where I have feeds for TONS of other health/paleo blogs). Surprisingly, I don't have PH's RSS feed in my reader. Maybe it's because I don't feel I'd get as much out of PH unless I were at the site. And I follow PH on twitter, so I'm apprised of new questions as they happen ;-)
PaleoHacks is probably #2 for me :)
That's somethin! I used to spend alot of time reading and commenting on Gizmodo, but then Gawker changed over to their awful new format, and I rarely look at it anymore. What a mistake.
