    chanarchive.org | Convict Conditioning Thing | archived from 4chan /fit/ - Health & Fitness
    I was finding a image about convict conditioning, and I came across this archived thread about some 'primal' person in Finland who thought that primal meant running after deer naked and fighting them with your bare hands.
    I wish this chan thread was still going so I could remind him that we have used rocks, spears, even bows, for a very long time, and even before that at least we were hunting in packs.
    It's kind of an embarrassment having people paint such a picture of primal people as being some sort of Randian ‹bermenschen, taking on animals much bigger than they.
    Anyway, apart from the negative side, I just thought it was amusing.

    Randian? The ‹bermensch has nothing to do with the Rand Corporation. It's a term from Friedrich Nietzsche a 19th Century German philosopher. And it isn't about hunting. For Nietzsche—despite his rather lurid imagination, a rather pallid, sickly and solitary gentleman, as it happens—see here:
