I’d love to know more about this.
Thank you! I was already eating pretty healthy, but now I’m replacing milk yogurt with soy yogurt, and eating fewer eggs and more bread with nut butter. I already don’t eat a lot of meat, but I’m also replacing meat with tempeh in one more meal.
DF decreases estrogen (which could cause cancer)
There’s your negative effect: DF may be partly responsible for my low sex drive.
>The question is whether future humans will even bother trying to carry Earth animals with them or not?
Of course we will bring our pets! I don’t know about other animals though. If it’s up to me, mosquitoes will get left behind, for one.
This guy says it’s fructose, plus salt and MSG. “Nature puts a “survival switch” in our bodies to protect us from starvation. Stuck in the “on” position, it’s the hidden source of weight gain, heart disease, and many other common health struggles. But you can turn it off.” I think he’s on to something; since I’ve been following his recommendations, I’ve been able to lose weight again ( ~9 kg since the end of April).
Maybe you don’t have to stab the entity to death?
Same for me. I remember one dream from when I was little, before we even had a TV, let alone a color TV. It was in color.
Small nitpick about English: it’s “life expectancy”, not “live expectancy”.
As I’ve gotten older, my inner voice has been getting ever quieter, and now I often go long stretches without it. Like you, I sometimes feel like my inner critic has been saying something nasty, but mostly the thing has just shut up, which is very nice! At the same time I’ve gotten over my depression (never officially diagnosed, but I’m pretty sure I had it). Coincidence? I think not, but I don’t know which is cause and which effect, or just how it happened, so I don’t have any advice.
What does SCP mean?
I guess the thing to do would be to correct yourself right away, apologize to the person you told the lie to and tell the truth. Of course that will be embarrassing, but if you let S1 get away with lying, it will get rewarded for doing it and it won’t stop.
Please don’t ‘twist some wires together’, connect them with connector strips like these. Much safer!
I understand why there is niceness. I don’t understand why I should be nice if God doesn’t exist.
Because being nice feels nice. Humans are a social species. We can’t survive alone, and so we evolved gut feelings that make us behave nicely to each other (at least inside the in-group).
Many, I bet! Me, for one. I’m actually quite happy now, but if someone offered me the chance to live my life over the same way again, I’d refuse. And I haven’t even had a bad life, objectively.
No, I have no idea about how/whether it’s enforced.
The Netherlands allows dual nationality only for people from countries that don’t allow one to give up their nationality. If your country allows you to give up your nationality, you have to do that in order to become Dutch.
Yes, I think it was where he explained that you don’t really feel better when you smoke. What happens is that a smoker feels worse in the times they don’t smoke, and then a cigarette brings them up to normal again for a short while; so while you’re smoking you feel as good as a non-smoker feels all the time. But I don’t know if just reading that would have done the trick without the rest of the book.
I’m actually not quite sure. It’s not a whole program; you just read the book, and (if you’re anything like me) you’re sober, just like that. I’m not a ‘recovering alcoholic’ the way I see some people writing who have been sober for even longer than I have; I’m done with alcohol, for good, and I knew it right away. He basically talks about the negatives of drinking and the positives of sobriety, with stories and examples, in a way that just ‘clicked’ for me.
I’m Dutch, and not into homesteading or anything like that at all, but I also chose the cow going with the grass. Maybe it’s because I’m not a native speaker of English? Do you interpret ‘goes with’ as ‘is more like’? I’d have thought it means ‘belongs together’. (Of course the cow and the chicken also belong together, in the sense that both live on a farm, but ‘one eats the other’ seems like a more direct relationship.)
Make sure the names are written in big, bold letters, so they can be read from normal talking distance. Give people a thick marker to write with if you have them write their own names.
