I think Ryan is right. Seeing a single frame makes it impossible to know what is actually happening. We'd need to see a video.

This is seriously the dumbest lawsuit I have ever seen. Vibrams is getting sued for misleading their customers: http://zero-drop.com/?p=3884 From the lawsuit: "Not only will transitioning to run in FiveFingers take significant time, it can be fraught with pain and injuries." Basically, this would be like suing a kettlebell manufacturer for being sore after you used one.

"It will never happen with LSD." Oh, there's very little that can't happen on LSD.

Stephanie, I also gathered that - his priority seemed to be on how good he looks. The fact that he was getting beaten by women should have made him re-evaluate his level of fitness. When I got beat by a fat woman on my second WOD ever, I realised that I had no idea what fitness was.

Never used duck fat before - I wonder if you can even buy duck anywhere in Atlanta to render the fat with.

After not having worn shoes for two weeks, I decided to go into my monthly one-mile race barefoot. I convinced three other guys to do so as well. My normal mile time is around 6:15. My best mile time is 5:52. I finished last night, in a barefoot sprint, in 6:01. The other three guys all chopped thirty seconds off their previous records. Anyone have similar experiences with running barefoot? And I don't mean with Vibrams - I mean barefoot.

I don't have the burden of proof (even though the evidence is stoutly stacked in my favour) - all of you low-fat promoters do. I think it's hilarious to post articles from experts that explain why it's essential to eat plenty of saturated meat fat and then have a nutrition page that encourages people to follow Gerald Ford's Dietary Guidelines. The burden of proof is on the adherents of the "Paleo" diet to demonstrate that low-fat meat (something no Paleolithic man ever ate) is to be preferred from eating normal, fat-laden meat (something that Paleolithic men ate almost daily). Why make a proscription to do something that isn't backed by any science, especially when said proscription has already been completely debunked? It's retarded. Michael Eades, Mark Sisson, Weston Price, Sally Fallon, Robert Atkinds, Gary Taubes, Robert Mercola, and Tom Naughton have all conducted and compiled massive amounts of studies and research that show that high-fat meat is essential to a good diet. In fact, we are well aware of these studies, many of us having quoted them ourselves. So why do we keep stuttering out "lean meat"? But since you ask, I'll humour you: "Can you point to a study that says fat meat (and not general fat) consumption improves athletic performance over lean meat?" First, go re-read Enter The Zone and see the numerous health benefits specific to fish oil. Second, you can research the many dangers of PUFA oils (canola, soybean, &c.) which have been documented highly as well. But none of this is really new information. Which is why it's all the more retarded to insist on "lean meat" when we all know better.

Wow! This is a new one. First they told us that fat made us fat. But now we know better. Then they told us that fat gave us heart disease. But now we know better. Now you're insinuating that fat impedes athletic performance? Wow. I've never even heard that from mainstream sources. Of course, Loren Cordain wasn't writing for athletic performance either, which is where the dogma of "lean meat" came from. As it turns out, Loren Cordain recommends lean meat because he believes two things that have been disproven: 1) Calories in equals calories out. 2) The lipid hypothesis. Unless you can point to an study that shows that fat consumption decreases athletic performance, I stand by my suggestion to remove the aforementioned retarded drivel. Finally, Dr. Barry Sears himself claimed in Enter The Zone that athletes should intake more fat than sedentary people. So where does that leave us? For some reason, we're still pretending that all our evidence points to lean meat. Some of you guys are hilarious.

A quote to live by (from Michael Eades's article above): "I mean, don’t try to be noble by eating boneless, skinless chicken breasts – instead insert some pats of butter under the skin of a chicken leg and thigh before cooking, and wolf them with your fingers while the fat drips down your arms. Do not trim the fat from your steaks – eat them from the fat side in. If you leave anything on your plate, make sure it’s the meat and not the fat. If you don’t already, learn to love bacon, and don’t cook it ‘til the fat is all gone: eat it wobbly. Wallow in Mangalitsa lardo." Can we have the above quote on the CFATL nutrition page and get rid of that retarded drivel about "lean meat"?

Yeah, I saw that earlier. I almost thought it was from the Onion. Then I remembered having seen the following: http://www.theonion.com/articles/scientists-trace-heat-wave-to-massive-star-at-cent,21088/

I would pay a lot of money to see Chris Spealler and Mikko Salo thumb wrestle. I agree that throwing a ball is silly, but the concept is fine. Why couldn't they just use the standard discus or shot put?

Most Kroger and Publix stores have a notary public. UPS stores and FedEx Kinko's usually have them as well.
