Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

The Contest:

Have a topic, subject, or good idea for a blog post on MDA? Now’s your chance to suggest it. In the comments section below, leave a title for a future post on Mark’s Daily Apple.

Each title submitted counts as one contest entry. Five entries per person are allowed.

Eligibility:

Any U.S. resident. Sorry worldwide readers. Most countries prohibit import of meat products.

September 23, midnight, PDT.

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

I’ll pick a winner and will use submissions for future MDA article ideas.

I can assure you this: if a raccoon is in a tree and you climb after it, it will probably climb out along a branch hoping you won’t follow. You can then shake this branch, causing it to fall out of the tree. Raccoons are tough though so it might able to run away before you climb back down. And possums can be easily stomped to death. Well, it might take quite a few stomps, but eventually the skull will break. After that they can be kicked around like a football. I really should have eaten that possum.. and it… Read more »

I once stomped a squirrel’s head in on the street in front of a bunch of strangers. The first stomp shattered its skull and the second one kind of flattened its whole head. I had shoes on so it wasn’t that much of a.. mean feet. It was lying there mangled with its tail twitching, I suppose hit by a car, maybe it fell out of a tree onto the road. that was just a couple days after holding someone’s head and staring into his eyes with a caring expression on my face as he faded, after his girlfriend stabbed… Read more »
