    -When you contemplate asking the other people at the table for the fat they are cutting off their ribeye steaks.
    -When all that's left on your plate after eating chicken is a pile of bone splinters.
    -When your friends all think you're full of abstruse knowledge of food and cooking, which seems like "common knowledge" to you because you've been hanging out at primal blogs and forums too much.

    I love running and hiking barefoot as much as the next guy. But as someone that spends a lot of time in airplanes, I would seriously advise against this, at least for the first and last 20 minutes of your flight. Sturdy leather shoes will be your friend if you need to quickly egress from an accident. There are many more survivable accidents than you'd believe. And they are much more survivable if you're not trying to run barefoot through sharp metal and burning jet fuel.

    Of course, I'm weird like that. I also always wear wool pants or cotten jeans along with other natural fibers for the same reason. Had a friend that balled up a plane years ago and suffered severe burns over every exposed piece of flesh. He lived, but had he worn a t-shirt he may have not had a life vest melt into his chest.


    On a cheery note, you post a picture of shredded pork, eggs over easy, fajita steak and pico de gallo for breakfast in Mexico, and have friends make heart attack comments. Friends that have gained 60 pounds sine you first met, while you've dropped 50...

    Point taken and your right. Should have thought, I went through ARFF (Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting) training over 20 years go. And I only wear natural fibers all the time for the reasons you stated. I did it as much as anything else to see if I would have any problems from airport personnel which I didn't.

    And you are dead on about wearing leather shoes. Anything else will melt to your feet. Thanks for pointing this out.

    When a coworker says he's off to the Cal. (calibration) lab and you hear "Cow Lab" and wonder where that is, how much meat it might have, and how did you miss it all this time? <Just happened to me like 5 minutes ago.
