Before Grok was Grok, he was Li’l Grok. Head over to Psychology Today to find out how early hunter-gatherer children learned to hunt and gather.

Smell the bacon candle. But don’t eat it.

Damien Walters is okay at acrobatics. You know, decent, not too bad. He made a mix-video. It’s okay.

Cows don’t just taste great, they may also be the ecological solution to revivifying wastelands. Read Fast Company‘s expose on the man who won the Buckminster Fuller Challenge for finding a gee-whiz solution to a major environmental problem.

Do not give in to the dark side. Noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

  • An odd little hors d’oeuvre; give Healthbent‘s mini pizza meatloaf a whirl for the Sunday night Jenga party.
  • And if you want to go a shade odder, whip up The Wilderness Childe‘s knotweed cobbler for dessert.

Comment of the Week

I wonder how many people suffering from severe digestive ailments go to their doctor’s office, and they just get some pills. “Here take this expensive chemo rat poison for your chrohn’s, but don’t worry about having pizza hut for dinner.” It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

  1. I love Methuselah’s Primal in a Nutshell series! Thanks for the links Mark.

  2. Interesting reading the Psychology Today article, especially as a parent and an autonomous home educator. So now I can say we home educate primally as well LOL
    Thanks for posting the link Mark.

  3. “Those livestock in turn till the soil with their hooves and fertilize it with their dung–thus preparing the land for new vegetation in a cycle that was evolved over millions of years.”

    It’s the Ciiircle of Liiiiife…

  4. Love these weekend links. About the personal products, I still use shampoo & conditioner yet I did an experiment w/ raw honey & water to soften my hair. It worked & left it silky smooth. I did 2 tbsp of raw honey to less than 1/2 cup of water. It came out creamy based & put it all over my hair, left it for about a coup of mins. Then rinsed it out. Left it silkly smooth. Now that I read about personal products info (Thanks!) I have some ideas on what to look for. The bacon candle is just pure torchure lol. (By the way, I used Really Raw Honey brand; its creamy & delicious too lol).

  5. Thanks for the link love for the Damien Walters video.

    Yeah, that guy totally sucks! hahaha.

    I could sit and watch it over and over and over.

    Thanks again and anything I can do to help, let me know.

  6. I want that bacon candle… I don’t see where I can buy it. But, I honestly want it. I have become almost obsessed with candles over the past 2-3 weeks. A bacon one would be nice! Its cholesterol free though!

  7. I have been lurking here for quite awhile and like most of the info and find it helpful but the comment by “Zach” about crohns assumes that perhaps most people with crohns or other chronic illness dont care about their diets—bad assumption and as the mother of kid with HUGE crohns problems I found it hugely offensive. I wish to heaven my kid COULD eat at Pizza Hut. With all the other problems my kid faces the last place we need offensive comments from is from the place where help might actually be found. It doenst make people want to to follow Zachs advice when he is so callous toward those with life threatning illnesses with his comments.

    1. You might want to read it again Janice.

      Zach wasn’t having a go at the patient’s at all – just the CW doctor’s who would rather write a prescription and say “NEXT” than actually doing a bit of research & explanation to help their patients.

      He’s on YOUR side.

      1. Chemo is a pretty serious step for crohns patients-we’ve been there. I have met numerous doctors and have yet to have a discussion with one that doesnt take chemo seriously. If this is Zachs experience he really needs to look around and seek out better medical care. I have yet to personally meet a doctor who treats patients with crohns who didnt speak to the value of diet-and we have seen/met/ talked to many. I think he is taking a cheap shot, whether at patients or doctors and doesnt show a really clear understanding of what he is talking about.

  8. So what IS a good safe water proof sunscreen? Snorkeling season is almost upon us here in Southern California and my very white backside has not seen much sun over the winter. It’s 45 minutes to the beach where the good snorkeling is located and at least another 15 minutes to find parking and walk the many blocks. When I finally touch the water, I plan to snorkel until I forget how to walk. And no, I am not wearing a bunch of clothes into the water! I actually tried wearing a shirt once but it floats up in the water and still let me get a nasty burn on the lower part of my back. I don’t see any reasonable way around sunscreen for that one.

    1. Look in a dive shop for s swim shirt. A standard shirt will have the problems you mention, but they make shirts for swimming that work just fine. I too have the white skin problems you do, but with a good swim shirt I had no problems.

  9. Janice, I suspect Zach was trying to be insulting to some (not all) doctors and their tendency of too much bad advice, not to patients who are then forced to try to work out their problems on their own because the doctors aren’t helping them. But I think you are right that oversimplification and insulting comments can sometimes end up backfiring and distracting from more important points.
