Let's just say her career won't have many bumps in the road and regardless of ability or effort, she'll land a cushy staff job in record time.

Or is this how the young-lings of a more conservative bent are doing things these days - signalling their buy in to the Trad-life package deal by publicly committing to implausibilities.

Some dude with obvious mental health issues asks PZ to remove an embarrassing post from years ago. Although it would cost him nothing and even give him a chance to engage in his passion for virtue signalling ("I'm a vegetarian, really I am!"), PZ says no. Even some of the horde realize PZ is being a dick.

https://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula ... 9/a-truce/

He assume the wretch has been seething for years. No self-awareness. It is PZ who has been seething for years over the fact that, in spite of his best efforts, he was not made a fifth horseman. And in spite of his incessant white-knight pandering ever since that realization, he apparently has still not gotten into RW's pants.

I once read - I wish I knew where - that if you do everything 'right' (as we understand it - don't smoke, drink moderately, exercise, watch your weight, eat whatever diet is considered correct, don't pick your nose, separate the coloureds from the whites in the laundry etc etc) you will, on average, increase your lifespan by two years. And have a 70% chance of spending your extra two years in a nursing home.

Indeed. However I’m restricted by a long standing hatred of salad and vegetables when faced by the challenge of satiating moderate kJ meals.

I am hoping the current ambiguity over HDL vs LDL and large / small LDL plays in my favour. Plus the argument that any correlation of CVD and meat
is driven by your “typical” meat eater being a boozing, smoking health maverick.

Ah yeah, I did forget that for you it's steak and other artisanal proteins all the way these days, Croseus. That certainly seems like an expensive way to eat, but at least it will save your limbs from the ravages of diabetes as you say. However, you can have eight arms and fourteen legs, but they won't be of much use if all that fat dams up your brain, and one night your motor centers sit choking for oxygen for an hour or two.

You probably don’t really need more than say 6700-7500 kJ a day. This can be comfortably delivered with two fairly substantial whole food meals and no snacks.

My lunch costs $7 for 2900 kJ with 5 foods and 25g of mayo. $2.50 of that is 45grams of smoked salmon. Dinner no more than $15. I spend what would otherwise be TV time prepping lunches on Sunday. No excuses. Protein, egg and salad based dinners take fuck all time to cook in you pre organise the ingredients.

If you are legitimately below $25 a day food allowance, you have more immediately existential problems than diet. Families need to embrace economies of scale. Yep. The job description includes “effective planning”.

At an individual level, the problem for any but the most feeble of people is the lack of education. And more importantly, a lack of self control, determination and above all, organisation. Given the processed food forces in play, not much you can do about the latter.

However the victim narrative around obesity is enablement.

It's probably polygenic, so it might be possible to have a milder or stronger tendency to insulin resistance, but there are enough fatties around with perfect blood sugars to show it's not inevitable. I think if you have the 'good' alleles of all the genes involved you won't get type 2 DM however hard you try. A few genes have been identified, and those can be tested for in a research setting if you want to do a full genotype. I'm not aware of any single gene tests available for clinical use, and given there are many genes not much point in testing for just one. But there are a few tricks - we know roughly where these genes live, given that they are often associated with genetic fellow travellers that ride just next door on the same chromosome. So we have some unrelated markers that if present mean you are much more likely to have the insulin-resistance genes. These include alcohol-related flushing (face goes red when you drink booze), acanthosis nigricans, necrobiosis lipoidica and excessive skin tag growth (may be part of acanthosis nigricans). If you have those you are very likely indeed to be carrying the genes for type 2 DM.

Ah. So the ‘narrative’ would be:

“maybe 60% or more of the population has the gun loaded on them. And the SAD / food desert / economic barrier / exercise paradigm eventually pulls the trigger on this large subset with increasing, near certain, frequency.”

And if so, it’s the specific causal weighing of the trigger events which brings on the apparent “we don’t know ...” confusion.

RIP Holden, eh Brivo?
It’s been a death of thousand cuts. I think Holden went GM in the 1930s. Then the bottom fell out of the big car market in the 2000s with the take-up of SUVs. Local production stopped in 2017 after an announcement a few years prior. Now the foreign badged ring-ins are disappearing.

Vale. Its been a while since Dad took us on driving summer holidays to Cooee Bay, Yeppoon in the Statesman. We had family in Rockhampton. Funny how a smaller population supported a successful local car industry before globalism brought its benefits.
