If you aren’t able to make it to PrimalCon  for the Barefoot Ted Experience (that should totally be a band), check out his latest Luna Sandal offering – the Equus . Bloggers interested in becoming an affiliate should sign up here . These are high performance minimalist sandals with Vibram (they really get around, huh?) soles.
This isn’t exactly new, but it’s still incredibly cool: the story of US food industrialization from 1850 to 2000, told by putting workforce occupation records into flare chart form .
Ever wish you could chew Tylenol and like it? Scientists have come up with a new “bitterness blocker ” that masks bitter flavors. They foresee this will make taking your medicine and drinking diet soda palatable, if not downright pleasurable. Because, you know, industrial food isn’t already sweet enough.
Argentines sure do love their beef. They recently broke the record for world’s largest barbecue , and they had to call in the military to complete the weigh-in. The final tally was 948 full beef ribs at 30,231.9 pounds. I bet a week’s worth of MDA commenters could handle that no problem.
It turns out that humans can learn far more from bonobos than how to safely orchestrate orgies in trees; they’re also big on play, using it for problem solving, social cohesion, and learning about how the world works. Watch primatologist Isabel Behncke expound in this TED talk . Now, who’s up for a game of “grab the testes”?
“What is the number one thing one can do to improve his or her health and fitness?” Logan from Wild Movement asked me, and I answered  (along with ten others). Hint: it’s not “eat more fruits and vegetables.”
Holy cats! Paleo Brands superstars Robb Wolf, Paleo Joe, and John Welbourn have unleashed their biggest PaleoGourmet entree sale  yet. This is the perfect chance for you to swap out Mom’s Lean Cuisines for actual food.
And finally, the Lipitor Paradox . It’s hilarious (and sad) because it’s true.
One year ago (March 28 – April 3)
“I shambled after as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’”
