    Licensing is ok, as long as it is done by private businesses and it is not enforced by govt.. That would lead to higher quality licensing services, because they would be staking their business reputation on you by licensing you. For one thing, you are assuming that government licensing services prevent other people from doing hack work, but in your post you admit that you have seen it done. I don't think it would happen with any more frequency than it does now. People know that electricity is deadly and I've hired electricians unofficially, under the table in the past for legal (medical) MJ grow operations and even then we weren't trying to cut corners and hire someone who wasn't an electrician.. even though we were planning on removing all of the wiring before vacating and other than knowing the person knew what they were doing having the work done by someone licensed wasn't really important.

    They are ruining their metabolism, check back with them in 10-20 years, if they are really on a "high carb" diet, vegan or otherwise, they will eventually start having metabolic issues. I had a friend who got into weight lifting while I was getting into paleo. I told him about paleo, and that he should do low carb, high protein (since he was body building) and high fat (for energy). But he had all these crazy carbo loader powders, he was eating huge plates of brown rice before his workouts, then drinking carb powder during the workout then eating a big plate of white rice after. He ate small amounts of lean protein and some protein powder. Most of his diet was carbs. I told him he was going to get diabetes, and 2 years later I went over to his house and he had a piece of paper on his fridge that talked about pre-diabetes and what foods he needed to eat to avoid becoming diabetic.. I asked him about it, it was his from his doctor.

    If the decision gives the Fed Gov more power, it should be at least 6-3, if it gives the Fed Gov less power, then 5-4 is ok.

    Like I said, if you study the HISTORY of bitcoin, or if you were paying attention while it all happened, you would know that BTC did not EVER consistently go up in value like you are talking about. It stays relatively steady, then makes big moves, reaches new highs, goes parabolic 20x, goes back down 3x-4x, then stays steady for a while.. then it reaches new highs, goes 20x in a very short time, then goes back down 3x-4x.. that is the pattern. If you do the math on what BTC would be worth if it were used in the marketplace, you would have a much better idea of its potential value than doing those silly calculations that have no basis in history or reality.. I don't believe that is totally accurate, I know the electricity costs are less than 1/10th of the cost or less in some areas, but the question is always about the capability of the hardware and its costs.. I'll buy $3-$5k per btc in cost, but probably less.. and when BTC goes to 200k, the cost of mining a btc will be a bit less than 200k.. what's your point, Morty?

    Wrong. He later revised that figure to $1 million by the end of 2020... I don't know how long you have been paying attention, but BTC has had ridiculously huge upward movements several times now, and when it reaches new highs it tends to go 20x each time. That means $400k is the next stop next time it goes past $20k, if history is any indicator. Every time it explodes upwards 20x, the deep state writes a bunch of articles about how it is in a bubble when it goes down 3x-4x.. Go back 7 years, 5 years, and in the last year and you will find the same kind of articles saying BTC is in a bubble.. It was in a bubble when it was $2, it was in a bubble when it was $100, $1100, $20k... it could easily reach $1 - $20 mil. and possibly beyond that.

    His BTC prediction will come to fruition.. don't remember if there was a timeline on it, that might not be 100% accurate, but crypto will rule the day at some point, it is inevitable.

    I gotta give most of the credit to Rand since he delivered the idea and got it through, but you have to give Trump some credit for helping him out - he couldn't do it on his own. Does anybody here think that Hillary would have helped Rand pass this?

    It was the carbs that kept her overweight - starches, sugars, etc.. cause she is losing weight now and eating more dairy than she did before. If you eat oranges, apples, grapes, potatoes, rice and beans all day you will get fat too. If you replace most of the sugars and starches with non-starchy vegetables, seeds, nuts and oils then you will probably not gain weight.

    Uh, no my scenario HAS EVERYTHING to do with the studies you posted. I described PRECISELY how a study could come to the false conclusion that it came to, which is, a conclusion that is literally retarded.. I'm sorry, but anybody who says meat causes diabetes literally sounds retarded, it's like saying water is dry. This is basic logic: People are told foods in Section A are healthy and foods in Section B are unhealthy. People who want to be healthy eat foods out of Section A, people who are not concerned typically eat foods out of Section B. Section B has a lot of refined carbs and things that cause diabetes, and it also has red meat which does not cause diabetes. So people who eat food out of section B get diabetes, not because they are eating red meat, but because they are eating everything else in that category. People who try to eat healthy eat foods out of Section A, which has less meat and far less red meat, and also less refined carbs and starches. Meat doesn't cause diabetes, there are plenty of scientific studies that prove precisely what I am saying, you are insanely wrong. That doesn't mean you are going to get diabetes, because you don't eat a lot of refined carbs and sugar and starches. But what it does mean is that you are giving people really bad health advise.

    This can easily be explained by the fact that people are told that red meat is less healthy for you than white meat (which is not true at all, but people believe it). So people who attempt to eat healthy among the general public eat less sugar, less refined carbs, more vegetables and less red meat. People who DON'T put any effort into eating healthy among the general public will eat more sugar, more refined carbs, less vegetables and more red meat. That doesn't mean red meat causes people to eat less healthy, or that it in and of itself is less healthy.. it just means that people have been told certain foods are healthy and certain foods are not and so people will often eat foods out of one category or another based on whether they are more or less health conscious.

    That isn't how diabetes works. Those studies are flawed and anybody who has done any research into how diabetes works knows this. Let's say you are on a diet where you might commonly have a 4 oz piece of chicken, a little rice and a bunch of vegetables and water for dinner. You will not get diabetes on a diet like this. This is the "control group". Let's say you are on a diet where you have an 8 oz piece of chicken, a little rice and some vegetables and water for dinner. Your protein consumption has doubled, but you WILL STILL NOT GET DIABETES on this diet. Now let's say you are on a diet where you eat a double cheeseburger, fries, soda and a milkshake. Your protein has increased from the control, and you will likely get diabetes (because of the bun, fries, soda and milkshake, not the protein). That is how they were able to find an increase in protein consumption tied to diabetes - because the people they studied who ate more meat (especially red meat) also had more refined carbs and starches.

    I've been doing this for about 2 months, my wife has been doing keto, since the beginning of the year. At first, I had a hard time hitting my macro's without using a food logging app. Once I figured the proportions out, I stopped logging foods. I've lost about 10 pounds since I've started, but most of that has been in the past three weeks since I cut back on how much cheese I was eating. I've had to cut my hypertension medicine dosage in half, because my BP has dropped and with the full dose, I was getting some crazy low numbers, especially if I exercised that day. Speaking of exercising... Be sure to consume enough calories before you exercise. I "bonked out" on a 25 mile bike ride last week and everything after mile 19 was pretty miserable. Also, my sex drive seems to be improved. Maybe that's a side effect of less medication.
