So I Considered a Paleodiet...

I considered adopting a paleodiet, but I have been having problems finding trilobites in any of the local grocery stores.

Post inspired by a great post by Smut Clyde, concerning the fact that Ben Carson is a shill for a dubious "supplements" pyramid scam.

In a hilarious bit of ratfuckery, the article lambasting Carson for his grifting appeared in National Review- clearly, the establishment Republicans want to kneecap Carson before the 2016 GOP primary season.

Here: this guy is sensible. Likes to back up his opinions with research and actually change his mind if he's wrong.

Uh... this post is a joke, conflating "Paleolithic" with "Paleozoic".

You should check out "Riddled" for the bit about the "Mannatech" pyramid scheme.

Mannatech appeals to religion as part of the scam, so it's a Ziggurat scheme.

Ah, what's another goat in the rodeo?

I about laughed my ass off (now THERE is an exercise plan!) at a "paleo' recipe I just saw -- it was for chocolate chip cookies made with almond flour instead of grain, of course. But hey, that "evaporated cane juice" (SUGAR, to us normal, non-semantically challenged sorts) was AOK! Not to mention the chocolate chips, cause man you know Wilma Flintstone picked those, ready to eat, off the bush in her back yard.

Do not buy those 'TriloBites' from Walmart as they are just the Devonian equivalent of 'chicken nuggets', miscellaneous oceanic arthropods ground up and pasted together again, NOT THE REAL THING.
