Politics and Current Events / Re: Tom Ashbrook
That may just be the most disappointing one so far.

I'm not even sure how this is even sexual harassment.

"Creepy" sex talk, hugs and back or neck rubs after a dressing down. That's the pattern of alleged abuse described by 11 mostly young women and men who filed a multi-page document outlining their complaints ...

Yeah, repeated by 11 people (so far) who have come forward.  And he admits it.

I rechecked vitamin A... Yeah I'm at 80% USRDA with a half gallon per day.

 also at 2000 mg per day of both calcium and phosphorus. 
Not much good if you're vitamin D deficient.
Here's his skin exposure calculation.


Add that to the small amount from "unfortified" goat milk.

Mind you, if he eats his Wendy's burger with fortified bun then that should tip him over the top.

You're also at 52g of saturated fats, which is 260% of your RDA.

Have any of these millions of people generated any type of dental records?

Dave,
How many people on the earth today would you say are surviving on a "Price Diet"?
No idea
Is ANYONE surviving on a Price Diet today?

Looks like a lone wolf, or in this case a lone guinea pig.  We'll hear more whether the bomb was a fizzle or if it was just a kludge job.

If it was a fizzle of something more powerful then maybe he had some help.

If this happened in a red gun toting state would he be dead now from armed citizens shooting him after he blew himself up?

I'm always looking for concise ways to say things so how about this?

NUTRITION IS A MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE "BUTTON" WE CAN PUSH THAN ANY OTHER TO CONTROL CARIES.

In fact, no other "buttons" are necessary if we push that one.
Dave,
Imagine I'm eating a "Price diet" that enriches my saliva minerals.
If I used an antiseptic mouthwash (like Listerine) numerous times a day would you say I'm helping, harming or keeping neutral my teeth health?

Remember that a mouthwash would rinse out all the mineral rich saliva and replace it with a mouthwash system at a mouthwash pH.
"Harming" would be my guess because you are killing bacteria.  Also, those indigenous groups never used Listerine and their teeth were near perfect.
[citation needed]

So all these doctors reports, scientific studies and many many many many many anecdotal accounts from people that say that a mouthwash (alchohol, salt bath, hydrogen peroxide, etc; all antiseptic in strength to kill bacteria) is a GOOD CONTRIBUTOR to oral hygiene; they are all lying?

Why is that Dave?
11
Yes Dave, the "ancients" knew where to source their minerals and vitamins.

Modern diets include a number of reinforced constituents that are both harmless and necessary to your health.
Iodized Salt
Enriched Bread/Flour/Noodles/etc. (iron, B-Vitamins, folic acid, etc.)
Milk (Vitamin D, Vitamin A for skim/low-fat)

So if you include these items in your diet you will attain most of your RDA of vitamins and minerals without having to eat pig eyes or trade for dried kelp.

Mike, I'm not convinced Dave knows what 'antiseptic' even means.
I wanted to distinguish it from a "Flouridated" mouthwash like Scope (or, even, another type of Listerine).

For Dave's sake, just pretend that antiseptic means I'm rinsing my mouth with 20% ethanol (mint flavored of course) with some Hydrogen Peroxide added for good measure.

Mafia / Re: Omelas: Day 4
Good game raven.  I was trying to read some flavor, and I think I hit upon the dual role thingy finally, although that was the only flavor hint really.

I think everyone should treat me as a contrarian; whatever I feel, people should do the opposite.  Although lynching testy day 3 was more to save my butt than any type of scum read.

diva/nostrum/Y.B. - you guys hid well, although I thought I sensed some coaching of Y.B. on Day 2.  Another case of town eating itself I guess.  You've got to be really disciplined and a bit more open/trustworthy to put a town group together and maybe not lynch anyone without some clear reads.

Mafia / Re: Omelas: Day 4
flavor is still bothering me.  We have two Horse Riders.
We started with 14 players, so seven pairs of roles (or seven pairs of "compatible" roles like the diva/bor roles)
I also know of another twin group out there.

I still wonder if, in this Utopia, we are eating ourselves by killing one part of the "pair" thus turning the other part against everyone if only for a night.

You didn't like my swoop vote at day end to turn the tables on Testy?

He at least lolled when he realized the pickle he was in.

Mafia / Re: Omelas: Day 4
please tell me I've been confused and that some of the flips have actually been scum and we haven't figured it out yet

mike, can you please post a list of your reads?

LD, ksen, Y.B ... at least one of these is scum. diva/bor

OK nesb's night action confirmed, but can he be scum and also hand out flowers? anyone? anyone? Bueller?
Here's my reads yesterday evening, Day 3 top of page 5.

Quote from: nostrum
happy for testy to go, think LD is town, I think diva is scummy but I mostly do, mike looks town to me
I agree except for diva, I'm leaning bor or nothing for scum from that duet.

testy and ksen are in my scummy pile at the moment, along with Y.B. being coached.
teeth is town so far,
Nostrum, you lean town for me but there's a lot of fos cast out by others.

I think a spreadsheet is a good idea tomorrow if I survive.

we were mistaken about testy, but I still lean ksen as scum and Y.B. as coached scum.

I didn't mention nesb but I lean town on him.

Soooo ...

1. ksen - scum
2. borealis - lean scum
4. Y.B - lean scum
5. Nostrum - lean town
7. divagreen - lean town EXCEPT if bor flips town
12. laughingdog - lean town
13. nesb - lean town
