Re: Coronavirus

With those numbers I can imagine that Netherlands is testing only dead people posthumously (or people in extremely bad condition). If we assume the real ratio across countries to be similar, then Netherlands probably has similar number of cases as Germany. According to the tv news, things are alread...

Re: Coronavirus

I wonder if one could make reasonably accurate predictions on how good or bad things will go in countries and the world in aggregate based on these statistics plus information on lockdown duration and such. Probably wallstreet is doing calculations like this to "beat" the markets.

Re: Coronavirus

Thanks for clarifying RRM, those are very good points I didn't consider at all. The lockdowns cannot go on forever so it's not clear how this will continue developing. Possibly for years we'll be stuck with masks, controlled shopping in the stores, minimal tourism, disinfecting everything, anxiety w...

Re: Coronavirus

It definitely affects way of life around here. I've reduced going to the supermarket like once in 1-2 weeks, canceled appointments and trips, work is now full remote (although it already was 90% remote before as well). Basically we're trying to stay home as much as it's possible and go out only when...

Re: Coronavirus

I think trying to do any analysis based on the reported statistics is futile and cannot be trusted. Each country is testing in varying ways and has different capacities for testing, and probably counting deaths by non-standard criteria. I doubt there's a standardized method followed internationally....

Re: Wai baby

I joined this club as well now with a 3 month old at home :)
Don't think my wife will *ever* allow me to give him raw egg yolks though.
I myself have been off the wai diet since many years, although I generally eat healthy paleoish foods - not that far off wai, but generally cooked.

Re: Misunderstood milk

> Growth hormones are digested in the body anyway is there any evidence for this? The most troubling stuff in milk is perhaps casomorphins and other opioid proteins. I have a small baby now and as I've observed, whenever he drinks milk he's in a bliss for some minutes (very similar to how people tha...

Re: Sleep Debt | Hours of Sleep per Night

1) 7-8 hours 2) 8 3) the lower than 8 the worse 4) I just try to go to sleep earlier. My debt doesn't come from not sleeping on purpose, I never use an alarm either. Usually it's from going to bed later, but still waking up the same usual time I'm used to (e.g. 6:00), even though I didn't put any al...

Re: Farmed salmon feed

A week ago I watched this really good documentary, showing just how toxic farmed salmon is.

I'm really wary of eating any sort of salmon any more. I think mackerel should be fine, as long as it's not from the Baltic sea.

Re: Alternative to 100% Wai

I use such a sous-vide machine that can be precisely controlled to 1C resolution. They are cheaper now, I got mine for ~100 eur.
But I just do normal slow cooking, I don't care about the fancy effects of the vacuum sealed plastic method.

Re: RRM: Your work out plan?

Two questions, how do you get the vein of the arm that crosses the shoulder? Have you always had it, before wai diet? It may seem crazy but I love this vein, i love vein. I do not have the vain on the shoulder yet, I have on the biceps, easy, forearm of course also and down the abs when I'm on wai ...

Re: Emeira's Diary

Stomach biopsy results showed that stomach lining inflammation is caused by h.pylori, but I refused to take triple antibiotics therapy, I want to treat it natural way. Is it possible through a diet? There is very little info on "what to eat" if you have h.pylori. Some says that high carb diet is ba...

Re: Emeira's Diary

For me adding baking soda worked a lot better than drinking straight orange juice. Just add as much as needed til it stops reacting. If you leave it a bit when you add the soda, the salts collect on the bottom eventually, so then you can pour the orange juice without the salts. See here some analysi...

He doesn't keep it but makes it on the spot (I assume). There are many supermarkets that have these machines with bottles next to them, so you just take a bottle, push the button and the machine starts squeezing the oranges.

Re: RRM: Your work out plan?

Exercising the middle shoulder muscle (deltoideus lateral) is most tricky, as you need to avoid using your neck muscle (you dont want a bull-neck). I made a video to clarify: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0m-kfeLSiI That's a great idea with the bike tire! It's probably really easy to adjust resi...
