Snack yourself tan: how I went chameleon with caratenoids.

If you haven’t noticed by now, I like going Dexter’s Laboratory on my own person. And since drugs aren’t part’a that equation, I instead do things like ab challenges, my #30daysofnewthings challenge, and… now… the caratenoid diet. I actually started this back toward the end of January… and I figure now’s as good a time as any to record some conclusions. So here it goes: the chameleon caratenoid diet: BACKGROUND:.. Read More

#30daysofnewthings challenge: climb a tree

“Really? Is this the most creative thing you can come up with? Try a new fruit?” I mean, it’s on the list – but more of a last resort kinda thing.

And that’s what the standard foam roller would cost me to DIY style work out the kinks I’d caused myself with rotten posture. “Why bother?” I wondered, reasoning that “well if I.. Read More

You can thank this nice black lady that you don’t have polio.

This is kinda nuts. Mrs. Lacks was never lacking in the fertility department – she had a shiz ton of kids before she passed on. But I wonder if she knew that she’d give birth to something even bigger? Like the imminent precursor to polio vaccines and cloning capabilities? With her actual cervix, no less? She wasn’t some scientist or patient volunteer, either. She was a mother, hard worker at.. Read More
