I was idly surfing around the web today, and came across a pic of an old, 1920’s ad for a bogus weight loss product: La-Mar’s Reducing Soap. Here’s the spiel:
I have kids, so naturally, I’ve seen a lot of kids’ movies. These have varied in quality…most have been in the forgettable-to-annoying range, although there were also a few I’ve actually enjoyed (Toy Story and Shrek come to mind, here). I’d include “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” in the latter group: not perfect, but it had its moments of inspired insanity and […]
Coming from the word “motivate”, meaning, to provide with a MOTIVE. Strangely, I’ve never looked at this word from that particular perspective before. And that leads me to realize that I’ve never truly understood what motivation really is.
Ran across this during my travels across the blogosphere. I have a tough time as it is with gender-specific marketing for ordinary products…so it was amusing to see these particularly lame yogurt ads get skewered by comedian Sarah Haskins.

I get questions on this all the time on the forums I moderate, so I figured this was worth discussing…it seems like a common point of confusion. Simply put, foods change in volume/weight during cooking. Certain foods, like meat or fish, shrink. Others, like pasta or oatmeal, expand. But what’s important to remember, is that […]
Someone over on the “Bodybuilding Revealed” forum asked me about bee pollen today. This was a blast from the past…bee pollen and royal jelly were popular supps when I was a teenager. But these things never really go away, so I shrugged it off and replied that it was a nutritious, concentrated food, but, personally, […]
