Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Weekend Link Love

Looking for a way to add more sprinting to your kids’ (or your own) play? Reader Jamie found a cool toy called Hyper Dash, sort of a sprinting version of Simon. Check out the explanation video. Seems like you could play an extreme version of this game by setting the markers up atop trees, in crawl spaces, or on rickety bridges suspended high above crocodile infested waters.

Cows aren’t just for eating. You can draw on them too.

If you’re looking for Vibram alternatives (or footsies for the kids), Barefoot Ted suggests Soft Star Shoes. I haven’t tried them out yet, but they look peachy.

It’s time to cook some bacon. With a machine gun.

Patenting human genes? Sure you can! Or perhaps you can’t, according to a New York judge who ruled patents on several human cancer genes to be invalid. Via the NY Times.

Tired of walking on dirty ground? Try the treadmill bike. It wins prestigious awards.

I’ve got an App! If you own an Android phone, you can now travel with Mark’s Daily Apple in your pocket. Here’s a basic rundown of the app. And don’t fret, Apple users. I’ve got an iPhone app in the pipelines as well.

Also, if you haven’t visited the forum lately, take a peek. It’s been upgraded!

And finally, what do vegetarian zombies eat?

Treadmill bike had me going up until the guy tried to get on the bus with it.

Love the forum upgrades, too. Now all I need is to get myself an Android phone and I’ll be set. I’m kind of boycotting smart phones though in my quest to singletask my life.

interesting topic, but it is good to know that such cases occur everywhere, and is better than any prescription drug prescribed by a doctor if they want one can perform a search in findyourdrug where medicines are appropriate.

But can you roast VEGETABLES with the machine gun?? That’s the true test.

The shoes are really nnice but sizing for children can be challenging, I suggest that you outline your kid’s feet and send in the outline and have them take care of making the shoes. The complany is great to deal with though, very professional and quick to help out.

Want to end the war in the Middle East quickly? Just show the machine gun around and say its the new American super weapon…Al queda and the Taliban must lay down their weapons or face it. One way to beat a reigious zealot is to bring on the fear of death by bacon!

Bacon! Is there ANYTHING it cannot do?

Depends on the religious zealot. There’s a whole class of ’em who got special dispensation from Paul and don’t have to eschew pig meat anymore.

I love the fact that you came out with an app for android first versus the iphone!

The Soft Star Shoes are wonderful. I have two pair of the Suede Roo Moccasins and wear them all the time except for driving and rainy days. I’m fortunate to live locally (they are in Corvallis, Oregon) so I was able to go right to the shop and order my mocs. Both times they were done the very next day!

I have softstar shoes I got last year. I wear the same size as my normal shoes. I have the Ramblers that I ‘designed’ to be all black. I wear them at work most days (I change into them like Mr Rogers when I get in and take them off before I leave).

I really like them a lot. I’m sure I’ll get more in the future.

I’d like a pair with a more durable sole for running. I’m trying huaraches for running but I’d rather have softstars, I think.

LOL @ the vegetarian zombies. I see them all the time. Have become something of a Plants vs. Zombies addict. 😀

Why isn’t the app in the official Android Market? Sorry, but I won’t download apps that aren’t there… can you please submit it to the Android Marketplace? Thanks!
