    People seem to enjoy the idea of an all powerful government as long as it gives them free bread and circuses. People hate the idea of working for a living.

    Well people got a point. I've signed the useless ass petitions and sent letters to my senators. Got back some standard "we care and do our best to lube up before penetration..." bull shit. I guess I could secede from the union and declare my yard to be Petoria (like family guy... not Illinois ).

    All the more reason to pass laws banning guns and confiscating them

    I don't think guns should be banned at all.

    He doesn't look white at all, that's just your bias interfering with your perception.

    1) Your fitness is determined by your one rep maxes and how massive you are. Every other measure is for wussies or quitters.
    2) It is perfectly fine to vehemently argue VERY minute points of fitness or nutrition without any mention of cost or compliance. This is the "Eat 155g of Southwest Refried Panda Rectum to get ripped!" crowd. The fact that something is expensive, tastes terrible, or is miserable to do does not factor in. If it does, refer to number one.
    3) Unless someone is bigger than you or stronger than you, they are to be looked down upon as weaklings and bottom-feeders. Trample the weak, hurdle the dead. The fact that you may have a much better education, more happiness, more anything else, is not to be considered. I lift more = I am better than you, all the time.

    Ok, so perhaps those above are exaggerations....the sad part is that not by much
    Hah! This is exactly what "Bro-science" means. Sorry, I should have specified- it doesn't refer to male scientists or male paleos. Indeed, many a female on these forums fall prey to bro-scienceology! I posited this question because the one friend that I did convince to try paleo, eased her fibromyalgia, cured her post-partum depression, restored her energy, and she lost twenty pounds. HOWEVER, she lamented that she was soured by the Paleo/Primal forums by the aforementioned "bro-scientists".

    I think she could have gained extra support and insight from forums, like this one, but it turned her off. Hell, I don't even bother anymore, and I've been at this for four years. My other SAD and Vegetarian friends are pretty sensitive, and although I think they would fare way better on paleo, they wouldn't be able to withstand the rudeness here.

    Case in point, this became some sort of racism/gun-control, leftist vs. right wing, thread!?!

    The faux-bro-science bits were amusing, though, kudos on those.

    That's the interwebz. Every forum I've ever been in I've had to recommend with the caveat "if you can behave on the internet." Take the best, leave the rest, etc.

    Evolution of the human intellect is taking a very unfortunate turn if putting up with rude cretins needs to become a caveat, when interacting with other humans.
