Bomag: When Sonnenburg put these second-generation mice on a fiber-rich diet, their microbes failed to recover. Maybe in the lab. I suspect that in the world at large, they would eventually recover those microbes. How about Eskimos? Or Inuit, whatever. They subsist on very little fiber and seem to do okay.
Bomag: Haidt documents here the left/liberal lean of academia and calls for a diversity of viewpoints. Ha! Fat chance. This is a victory dance by the Left, and they aren’t going to let their opponents anywhere close to their turf. What we are getting now is a “holier than thou death spiral” of the activists maneuvering to be even more oppressed; claiming even more victim cred. Performance enhancing drugs will soon be needed to keep the process afloat.
Bomag: Swashbuckling stuff. Where do I sign up? …the ubiquitous Toyota pick-up trucks… Built and commercialized by cultures far from Islam. As is the internet and other tech that lets ISIS do its current thing. These really are just gross parasites.
Isegoria: Europeans (Whites) have shorter limbs than Africans (Blacks) and longer torsos. Applied Anatomy and Biomechancis in Sport discusses this (on page 98.)
A Boy and His Dog: Stepping over snow banks? Just a guess. But it seems like torso length is relatively the same globally, while Europeans tend to have long legs.
Cornelius: Fifty-eight minutes of the security footage from a nearby Burger King have been erased. Cops took the tape, returned, and the footage is now missing.
Johann Theron: I am no expert in this, but my experience tells me that the cop kept on firing because he was under severe stress and was in fact releasing his emotional bucket, so to speak. Other people do that differently. You have no idea what it takes to confront a berserk (not crazy) person until you have done it and no idea how you will react regardless of a “good shoot” training. My view on this is that the cop was absolutely forced to lower his standards to become berserk himself, and...
Slovenian Guest: Essentially MythBusters did the so called Tueller Drill: A self-defense training exercise to prepare against a short-range knife attack when armed only with a holstered handgun. Sergeant Dennis Tueller, of the Salt Lake City, Utah Police Department wondered how quickly an attacker with a knife could cover 21 feet (6.4 m), so he timed volunteers as they raced to stab the target. He determined that it could be done in 1.5 seconds. These results were first published as an article in SWAT...
Slovenian Guest: People really think of shootings as some sort of Olympic discipline and how anything not resembling a duel between respectable gentlemen is somehow unfair. It’s almost seen as an offense against sportsmanship when the police puts someone “only” holding a knife down, the troopers didn’t even count to ten, sacrebleu! Which reminds me of Mythbusters: Never Bring a Knife to a Gun Fight. The myth is that it is foolish to bring a knife to a gunfight, but, if you were standing in...
Lucklucky: Once again they fail to understand what these kids are. They do not notice the elephant in the room. The students are not coddled, they are not afraid of anything, and they don’t care about safe spaces. Those are only Orwellian newspeak tools as a way to get power. They are tyrants and Marxist ones at that. They are revolutionary guards.
