Weekend Link Love

Update on the 30 Day Primal Challenge: The kickoff will officially be September 7, the day after Labor Day. This should give you a little time for some last minute weekend indulgences plus a chance to spread the word to relatives at the Labor Day barbecue. More info to come next week, but here’s a little teaser… I’m giving away a cow, courtesy of US Wellness.

Tawfunguy from the forum is counting down to the day he’ll be loin cloth ready. And he’s vlogging about it on YouTube.

Remember the Grok crawl? Ross Training dug up a few parkour strength training videos that involve some hardcore crawling.

The NY Times had a great article on palliative care this week. Don’t know what palliative care is? You’re not alone.

Shawn Gorrell is doing well. He’s 55 down in the ATL.

He remaps farming zones just by existing. He makes the lonely hearts club look like a block party. Chameleons weep with rage at the mere mentioning of his name. He is… <thunderclap>… the most isolated man in the world.

Also from Slate, squatting happens. Or at least it should.
