Huh. I was poking around on the Incels.is forum today, looking to see what’s up in Incel-land, when I ran across this:
… Jordan Peterson? Is that you?
NOTE TO LITERAL-MINDED READERS: I AM JOKING; THIS IS A JOKE. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT SUPERSAIYANGYMCEL IS JORDAN PETERSON.
This is really just an excuse for me to make a joke about his literally all-meat diet (meat, salt and water only) and to post the video below, in which he reveals that the diet has done wonders for his mood. (It’s the second video; Twitter embeds things weirdly. But the first video is good, too.)

I have no medical advice to give to either Mr. SuperSaiyanGymcel or Mr. Peterson, not being a medical doctor myself, but I will say that two things that have improved my life immeasurably are ANTIDEPRESSANTS and METAMUCIL.

@ Katamount; @Robert:
Celebrity chef and humanitarian Alexis Soyer, hearing of the hardships of Balaclava, went to the Crimean to assist Florence Nightingale and establish nutritional standards in field hospitals; in the process, he invented a portable field stove that I believe the British Army uses to this day and pioneered recipes and techniques for cooking on an institutional scale.

Yeah. I’ve never understood why the “Paleo” diet is supposed to be a good thing. People who lived in the Paleolithic era all died of colon cancer by the time they were thirty.
