Because replacing sugar with fat is brilliant![/QUOTE]
Oh man, the comments section is like some beautiful, enchanted otherworld, though. Never in my life would I have expected so many wonderful, and [I]CORRECT[/I] comments on a mainstream website. It almost brings a tear to my eye. <3 Is this a vision of the future?
Haha I didn't even look at them, for fear of more awful tips! Nice, someone even linked to Balanced Bites and WAPF.
I must print out this XKCD. I love all their stuff, but this one just hits home.

It's really the mouseover text that nails it for me, though.
Yep. Almost makes me wonder if he's gone primal or paleo.

His wife has been dealing with breast cancer, so its possible hes stumbled across some nutrition stuff that leads him this-a-way. But I can also testify that there are a lot of hardcore nerds (here in Silicon Valley at least) who wear vibrams because they simply like being weird and different but are in no other way paleo/primal (for example, they eat crap and stay up all night coding, and think that the fact that theyre skinny means theyre healthy), so its possible hes been exposed to them through this crowd.
Yeah, but I was referring to the mouse over comment. Prob wishful thinking on my end.
My CW moment today is more of a helicopter parent moment. I was at a playground with my niece a few nights ago, watching her while I swung on a swing. A little kid started climbing onto the swing next to me. I stopped swinging and turned to help him out and offer him a push (his legs didn't quite reach the ground.) His mom (I'm assuming) came sprinting across the playground and scooped him out of the swing. "Why were you on the swing? I've told you, you could fall out of the swing and crack your skull or someone could take you." (Mind you, this is a semi modern one with the soft rubber padding for ground, not gravel.)
She turned to me, probably to chew me out, and I smiled and said "I fell out of several swings myself growing up. Worst that happened is I gave myself a bruise."
"Yes, but little Juvie is special and shouldn't get bruises or cuts."
"Oh, he has a clotting disorder. I'm sorry. I had no idea. I'll watch out for him then."
"No, he doesn't. He's a little kid, Little kids shouldn't get bruises or cuts ever."
I mistakenly thought this was a troll post - OMG so funny, so very very funny...
