  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    It was the sad realization that I was becoming diabetic, that forced me into doing something about my weight and eating patterns. After a couple years of failing by following the Usual Advice(c) of eating less and moving more, avoiding fats especially saturated ones, etc... I decided to learn human biochemistry directly, discovered a lot my doctor apparently didn't know about diabetes, glucose metabolism, and yet some more... I successfully replicated Tom Naughton's "improving your blood lipid panel while eating fast food for a month by applying one caveat" experiment in April 2007, and picked up low-carb paleo by winter that year as I kept reading more. This cured all the diabetic symptoms I had suffered for years in a matter of days. Interestingly, I also went down from size 12 to size 4 over the following 9 months without any calorie counting or sport, cured myself of a long-standing depression, a creeping arthritis in my left knee, gastric reflux, insomnia and bruxism, and I regained the running endurance I had in my teenage years - without training.

    Nowadays I only weigh myself from time to time to make sure it keeps working, and so far it does.

    It may not be against the law, but most times it IS fucking stupid.

In case of atomic attack, all work rules will be temporarily suspended.
