    I say "twenty-twelve." It makes logical sense considering that people said "nineteen-(whatever)." No one said "One thousand nine hundred ninety-nine." =P I've never heard anyone say "oh-12." That's...

    Science lab, for the win!
    I like modifying recipes, but also coming up with some of my own. Sometimes it turns out great, sometimes it turns out awful. For example, I tried this tandoori spice blend...

    Beer is probably the one truly non-primal thing that I consume on a regular basis (one wild night every couple weeks ... it's good for my mental state, haha).

    When you are comparing every single aspect of your everyday life to Grok, that's when it goes to far. We're not cavemen, and we never will be. To me, a "paleo lifestyle" is about optimizing...

    I don't think it's about being brainwashed, but about the social environment and what is typical of men and women for a given place. I'm a strong, successful female, but there's definitely truth in...

    I've found that doing CrossFit-style workouts -- i.e. ones that get my heartrate up to what it would be if I was running (not sprinting, running) seem to help, but YMMV. I had to take some time off...

    My cousin is gluten-intolerant, so the pie crusts and stuffing will all be gluten free. We did away with rolls a few years ago :)

    Probably true, and probably for the better. Mountaineers don't exactly make up a huge percentage of the population, and the paleo diet has gotten a fair amount of shunning from mainstream climbers...

    Depends on the sport, I'd argue. In rugby sometimes I would play hook -- so not many opportunities to run the ball, but still very important to the team and the game. Same for props and locks.

    Summer sausage. I took 14oz of it on a 3-day climb of Mt. Rainier and just kind of munched on it throughout the trip. It was great.

    I don't even care.

    Haters gonna hate, but you can't argue with results. I'm stronger, leaner, fitter, and more energized than I've ever been in my life. I must be doing something right.
