Another Way To Outlive Morons

Ignore all of their advice.

About everything. It's always wrong.

They don't even know what they don't know. What little they think they know is all wrong. The accepted wisdom is not wise. It's consensus stupidity.

The best weathervane is to have a good hard look at the opposite of what they are advocating, whatever it is. That's how stupid people in the modern world are. If our ancestors believed the opposite was true and upon examining the counter-arguments of the modern herd you realize they don't actually have any arguments to speak of ... then go with the time-tested wisdom of our ancestors and ignore everything else you hear from modern people. It's all the opposite of true.

I had a recent blood test (at age 47) and got the results back. According to the physician's desk reference I am a perfectly healthy newborn infant between the age of 18 and 24 months. My triglycerides are like those of a baby still in the womb. The people at the lab originally thought the whole thing was a joke and refused to believe the blood they were looking at was of a man nearly a half-century old. This despite being overweight and even having high blood pressure, at least at the time the blood was taken. My doctor was of the opinion that I was biologically a five year old with some premature gray hair who needed to lose some weight. He said he didn't see any of the conventional signs of aging present in me. In fact, he commented on my quick wit and agile conversation and said I didn't seem like a 47 year old man at all even in my speech and response time. He told me he had treated men of my age who were ready to be fitted for Ziff frames and who were already so senile they were doddering. More than anything else he said, I gave the impression of being a large big-headed infant in the bloom of life.

I have gone in a different direction from everybody else in life, in all things. Needless to say, I am a contrarian and it is starting to show the older we all get. For example, I have been eating ridiculous amounts of protein my entire life. It does not appear to have affected me in the way that the other 6 billion people on the planet told me it would. This turned out to be yet another thing they were completely spaced out about. They got it wrong. They got it wrong, for fifty years, it would seem.

Just remember, 99% of everything in this world is bullshit from absolute morons. In fact, this statement is one of the few things you can say out loud that is not rubbish. I'm just the messenger, so don't blame me. It's not like I had anything to do with it. That's simply the way the world is, at least at the moment. Don't ask me why everything is topsy-turvy or why people seem like they have a homing instinct for gibberish and an aversion to reality. I would not have been able to make up a dystopian nightmare like this as a science fiction story even if I tried to make it as outlandish as possible. You couldn't make this stuff up.

Funny you should mention that, I've been on a mostly paleo diet since the start of the year. It does force me to go to the supermarket two or three times a week, but at least it gives me time to think. The advantages to the diet are far too long to list here, but I'd recommend all vault-co readers research into it.

I'm flying to Australia next week so I may not be commenting for a while.

Can you give us a detailed rundown of your diet for a typical day tex?

I once followed a low-carb Atkins diet a few years ago. I went from 213 lbs to 170.

I briefly looked at the paleo diet ( ), and a few things stuck out at me:

"Eliminate gluten grains. Limit grains like corn and rice, which are nutritionally poor."

Aren't you an advocate for PACK YOUR RICE? ;)

"Try intermittent fasting or infrequent meals (2 meals a day is best). Don't graze like a herbivore."

This actually works. A couple of years ago, I only consumed about 1000 calories daily over a 3 day period. After which, I resumed normal eating and I kept losing weight over 3 months.

I don't follow a strict low carb diet anymore. I have regained all of my weight, but it's more muscle than fat. Low-carb is extremely difficult to follow especially considering that restaurants, convenience stores do not cater to this type of eating.

I went from 96 kilo down to 77 in 3 months. I hadn't felt better for YEARS. However after 9/11 I went back to "eat what you store and store what you eat" and put it back on. Carbs store better than fat & protein. Anyone got the answer to that? Pleeeeze!

No, it's a real problem.

Carbs can last hundreds of years properly stored, whereas food that is good and healthy goes off in weeks or less.

As always the answer is Spam. Lots and lots of spam. Shelf Life ... shudder ... "indefinite."

Of course, it's loaded with nitrates which make it complete crap for your body if that is all you are eating.

I tried storing a couple hundred bags of freeze-dried hamburger granules to get around this problem. As far as I know, they are nothing but burger.

P.S. Also, sardines. Stored in olive oil if possible.

Jerky, pemmeican, dried egg & lard is all I could think of. Ok maybe a sprouting kit and a mushroom kit but It might be a bit hum-drum.
