Re: The Weight-Management Thread

I feel like the calorie deficit thing is both obvious and insufficient? Like death is when the brain ceases, but that's not the CAUSE. We don't say "just keep your brain on!" Anyway, in the spirit of cooperation :blink: I will say that I like the mediterranean diet approach for my house, and thinkin...

Re: The Weight-Management Thread

Honestly, if you take your wife and two kids to McDonald's and you all get sandwiches or burgers, fries and a drink, you just spent $30 to $40. Ask me how I know (I don't eat McDonald's food). And if you give me $30 and turn me loose in a supermarket, I am going to cook a fabulous meal for four peo...

Re: Newtown Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory

This still baffles me. "My face-to-face interactions with Mr. Pozner have led me to believe that Mr. Pozner is telling the truth about the death of his son," Dave Gahary, the principal officer at publisher Moon Rock Books, said Monday. "I extend my most heartfelt and sincere apology to the Pozner fa...

Oh. So the guy who gives his experience which seems to confirm your simplistic view of the world knows what he's talking about. But the rest of the people giving their experience don't know what they're talking about.

Re: Hijack this thread

Everyone has genuine medical conditions, many of which contribute to all sorts of things, including obesity. Obesity is beyond complex and not anything close to understood* yet. A LOT of stuff that seems behavioral ain't. That's not denial. *Including the consequences of obesity! To say there's disa...

Re: Another Shooting

Yes, there are very fine people on this board on both sides of this issue. Your remark is at best ill-considered, at worst hostile and accusatory. I'm not a bad person or wrong just because you feel strongly about this. How dare you lump people on this board in with "fine people"? I hope you clarify.

That set aside isn't minor.

Also, 2000 came.

Also, I really believe we are in unprecedented circumstances.

So. My opinion differs, to a large extent. :mrgreen:

It kind of feels like if we impeach Trump, he wins. And if we don't impeach Trump, he wins.

Wasn't it like one poster once who said there was envy involved?

What do we need to do to make this stop being so painful? Could I start an open letter, and those of us who decry the "envy" remark could be signatories? Would that help?

Gosh.

My first thought on seeing the story was the Sandra Bullock movie The Net .

Hmmm... that also happened in Independence Day . ...
