Comment of the Week

You know what makes me angry? Conventional Wisdom. But I’ll follow your tips and not get too angry about it. Because that’ll give me high blood pressure (aka poorer health) and CW would still be sticking it to me! Hahaha.

– It’s a vicious cycle indeed.

I frequently eat soup for breakfast, particularly in the wintertime. Very nutritious and comforting. I usually have homemade beef or chicken stock on hand. It’s pretty easy to heat the stock (or broth) and add a variety of veggies, fresh herbs, sliced mushrooms, or leftover meat. You can also add raw, shaved beef and let it cook in the hot broth, pho-style.

It warms my heart to know that coffee continues to reap benefits. I’ll drink to that!

AlphaBrain is an excellent supplement; I’ve been taking it close to three years now. I’m glad to see that more and more studies and validating this product, because I can sure tell the difference!

Why is it so hard for humans to believe other animals experience emotions? Why wouldn’t they? Just because they don’t buy Hallmark cards and write love songs does not mean other animals don’t have that capacity.

As far as the study on the origins of love is concerned: I find it interesting that they discuss a lot about Primates and Chimps in relation to infanticide, but make no mention of Bonobos. Considering that Bonobos rarely, if at all, commit infanticide, It kind of throws a monkey wrench (pun intended) in their overall theory. Interesting read though…

The article had this to say about bonobos:

“Other species found different solutions, which is why not all primates are monogamous. For instance, chimps and bonobos minimise the risk of infanticide by being highly promiscuous. The males do not kill babies because they do not know which are theirs.”

Thanks, I didn’t even catch that the first go around. It looks like they included the Monkey Wrench 🙂

Indeed, I too would like to think I would help a drowning companion instead of going for the chocolate. A very close call…

I’d also have to opt for saving the drowning friend first – it’d be too hard for me to have to try to swim with my mouth stuffed full of chocolate———

Breakfast soup? And the first one listed was summer squash soup with canned salmon and asparagus. Uh, I think I’ll stick with eggs, thanks.

“A mix of interval and traditional endurance training boosts strength and size gains from strength training.”
So what you’re saying is that mixing up the kinds of movement you do is more beneficial than just sticking to one type?
Well who’d have thought? Oh wait yeah right.

While I love the idea of babies learning by observing and being allowed to attempt tasks that people typically think they’re too young to do… watching that baby walk around with that giant knife made me super nervous!!!

I’ve been eating at least 12 eggs a day (sometimes up to 18) for a few years now and my health is great. It’s always funny when people tell me I’m basically killing myself, even though I’m in better shape than they are… I wonder if the rats in that study face the same levels of peer pressure and criticism…
