Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

I still can't stop thinking about "paleo-diets"
This article (already noted here) is still on my mind. It's just so wonderfully ridiculous. What I noticed on re-reading it, however, is this passage:
"The one thing that Mr. Durant worries might spook a female guest is his most recent purchase: a three-foot-tall refrigerated meat locker that sits in a corner of his living room. That is where he keeps his organ meat and deer ribs."
1. Why the bulk purchasing and separate meat locker? What are the evolutionary benefits of not just purchasing a normal amount of meat and keeping it in your normal fridge?
2. More fundamentally, what's with the fucking fridge, Captain Caveman? Surely he should be eating his meat like they did on the veldt - warm and more than slightly gamey.
Mr. Le Corre, 38, who once made soap for a living, promotes what he calls "mouvement naturel" at exercise retreats in West Virginia and elsewhere. His workouts include scooting around the underbrush on all fours, leaping between boulders, playing catch with stones, and other activities at which he believes early man excelled. These are the "primal, essential skills that I believe everyone should have," he said in an interview.
