The stupid advice to load up on carbs happens despite the fact that vast numbers of carb groceries are processed and contain poisons that mess with human metabolism and have in one generation turned us into the fattest people on the planet.

This is so true. Years of eating "poor", having to fill up on carbs (they're good for you! HA), made me diabetic. I'm still struggling to get healthy again, because carbs are so bad for me. But, I like them. :(

The "food pyramid" is propaganda pushed by the people who make loads of money selling us cheap "food" and by the health care industry who make loads of money treating us when we get sick for eating all that crap.

Add on all the chemicals involved with our food -- from pesticides to preservatives, coloring and flavor enhancements -- and you've got a recipe for disaster.

I usually have cauliflower rice on hand so when I'm serving pasta I just have that.  I'm just short old and female and I don't need those calories. I like my bread just fine though. I adjusted to it no problem but it's not for everyone. For what it's worth I think the meatless days started during WW II when it really was about sending food to the troops.  They pushed cottage cheese a lot as a protein substitute during the war.

Yes, that's true, but there has been a real push toward carbs in the last couple of decades. Somebody is always touting carbs to me. Sorry, folks. I know my body and I feel best on a high protein diet.

I was never into the whole "progressive rock" thing, but I still appreciate the man's talent.  RIP, Mr. Peart.

And since no one else has posted any vids yet--y'all are really slackin' here--I guess I will.  ;)

As far as stupid official dietary ideas are concerned, I curse the day the U.S. government promulgated the idea that we should eat pasta--and have a meatless meal--at least one day a week. Until that time, pasta had never been anything I thought about. My mother occasionally served some spaghetti with our heavily meat-oriented meals, and even more occasionally made a cheese sauce for it. I never thought about it, and I seldom bought or ate it. She even more occasionally served canned spaghetti in sauce from a can; I detested it.

Along comes the government telling us we should eat this stuff, and I spent some time learning how to make my own marinara sauce from scratch (huge waste of time) and we began eating pasta. Now I'm hooked on the stuff; I think about it the way most people think about pizza: guilty pleasure. It's white poison, and I can buy an entire pound for 77 cents. (I've tried the whole wheat kind; it's gritty and gross.) Pasta, like rice, is for me merely an excuse to load up with butter and throw myself into a carb coma. I don't even keep rice in the house, for that reason. I occasionally buy some pasta with the same guilty feelings I have when I buy ice cream. (I buy a pizza maybe once or twice a year. I like it, but it's not on my craving horizon.)

Bottom line, by following the government's dietary advice, I added a new food addiction into my diet. I certainly did not need it. This is why today I will not listen to anything the government says about diet.

I listen even less to doctors, who are so blind and who follow medical fashion so blindly it is ridiculous. There is plenty of historical evidence that a high-protein and high-fat diet is healthier and keeps weight in control and keeps sugar in control, and so on, but the fat-shaming in our culture continues apace--much of it by doctors. The stupid advice to load up on carbs happens despite the fact that vast numbers of carb groceries are processed and contain poisons that mess with human metabolism and have in one generation turned us into the fattest people on the planet.       

Tl;dr: Yeah, this qualifies as a rant.

Never even heard of the vented before, but I don't think they'd be useful in my situation. I'm not swimming; I'm doing noisy things and trying to avoid the noise of them. I'll talk to someone about their efficacy.
My sister uses vented with filters all day every day. She even sleeps in them. The non vented she uses for anything past day to day noises like movies, malls, lawn mowers any thing loud which she usually ends up stacking headphones with.

I can't even describe it but he played the drums like it was a violin. In his hands it was truly an instrument, not just rhythm.

You guys want a funny story?  One of my best friends, when he and his best friend heard Working Man for the first time (on the radio) after it played the DJ said "Lord God," then went onto the next song. They hopped on their bikes and went down to the record store to buy the new Lord God record.  They were flipping through the L's in the stacks. We told the kids it was Lord God when they were still interested enough to ask who it was when we heard it on the radio.

A phenomenal drummer. Very sad, but his music lives on.
