Re Diet, BMI, and metabolic disease. Yes, it sure is a complicated topic. I've been doing a review of scientific literature on chronic illnesses, and there are sufficient connections to this topic that I can appreciate the various narratives here. Much of this area is under constant revision , so I'...

Re: The Democrats have to impeach him....

I skimmed through this quickly, so if its been said, I think it still bears repeating. Its about the process, not the outcome. How was the Clinton impeachment? It wasn't a victory at the end. Its about WHAT HASN'T HAPPENED. Because the GOP controlled House and Senate there were not open hearings. Un...

It wasn't just a graphic on a misleading tweet from Trump.

And... Yes. This may deserve its own thread.

I think the "Handmaid Tale" analogy is bogus. Disney characters were created by Disney for Disney's use as the essence of their image. The movie adaptation is just that.

Re: Issues 2020: Electoral College

I'll put in a counter-point--- and not just to take the Devil's Advocate opinion for discussion purposes. There are several reasons to retain the system (and yet fix the problem) and really only one to ditch the electoral system. The one reason to change it is "sour grapes" that the Democratic candi...

Re: GEDmatch, DNA, genealogy. Help me Obi-wan Slarti

Yes, we are essentially at the point of inferred genetic data using Slartibartfast tools.
But it isn't a database commonly accessible and will certainly get more accurate with time.

I'm in the process of learning the basics of causality and data analysis and am impressed by its utility.
