I dont know if the fact that the verse's lyrics are from a real advice book from the 60 make the song better or worse:

I'm Popular-Nada Surf

And flexing a new hosting site anonymizing youtube

I don't doubt that human sweat.

It seems a logical fallacy, and tell more about the theorist (those bloody hunter apologist) than the Hominid, to assume that sweat ability (and feet, gait, hairlessness, etc) came from persistence hunting (it could be anything, or a lot of various adaptation)

Where sweat came from? From Dancing

  To woo their mate, homo Erectus (like a lot of animal) had to dance for hours. Sweating help to court the mate longer, so is having arched foot, and gait, and a nice toupee. And so, only the most  persistent dancer could procreate Do I have proof? Lot of tribe nowadays still dance for hours to woo potential mate. And it's not only in Africa 

Do you want to start the Persistent dancer theory with me ? I need some well researched facts to write "Born to dance"

I was trying to be lighthearted.

The point is : Without agriculture no massive carbs source. Without carbs, long distance running is a loosing proposition (you cant replenish the carbs needed even when catching the prey). Agriculture is 10k years old

Persistent hunting is supposed to be the factor leading to homo... basically from Erectus 2 millions years ago, to sapiens , 1 millions years ago.

Once a Sapiens, with sweat, hairlessness, plantar stuff, gait, and all, you're already the result of millennia of selection gained through persistent hunting (allegedly).

But you are right , actually (while using agriculture) the Tarahumara can complement their diet with some antelope by running after them. It was not an option for Erectus (who had not access to such carbs source)

As the Aquatic ape (my other favorite theory), the Endurance hunter theory is sexy because it give one simple logical explanation for a lot of various traits. I guess Humans are addicted to simplification

The arguments for the persistent hunter, is one of accumulation based on a presupposition: We have hair, it protect from the sun while we run. We sweat, it help cooling for the run. We are bipedal, it's for running. We experience a runner's high with endorphin kicking in after 5 miles.. comon, of course we evolved to be persistent hunter

  The one argument again persistent hunter is the diet. 

Long Running need a lot of carbs. Even if you catch the prey, you get protein and some fat, but you cant replenish those carbs. And if you don't catch it, like it apparently happen a lot with the Tarahumara people (on a side note, the one and only primitive tribe using the persistent running technique) you're exhausted, with nothing to show for your effort, far from home, and you'll likely become the prey of the nasties around. Not very smart

Tarahumara live on a high carb diet75-80% of their diet are carbs.. not many protein( yeah they are bad at hunting prey). Such diet is only possible with agriculture

Basically we need agriculture to persistent hunt, which defeat the purpose

Are you saying I just need 40 windmills to blind inhabitants of every close planet around? So now: How many windmill do I need to exterminate them? Asking for a friend

After all, its a rational thing to do while I still have windmills and before they come with unknown intentions

On the other hand, Arthropods in 500m years never managed to create 4chan

Dinosaur in their 40m years span didn't get a radio wave out

Mammal in 200m years only managed to get some primate out, 100m years ago, any extinction event in that time frame, and Adios 4chan, Telescope, and bipedal walk

Not only the step from life to multi-cellular life took 4 billions years (1/4 of the universe life). But even after that the progression to intelligence life was long: In all the species around in the past 500m years, intelligence is a fluke.. we're still waiting for its 2nd coming. And Dolphins are more dumb than they look

Arrival grossed less than half of the other in the list. So the argument still hold: Sci fi now, mostly are without aliens

  Since I'm on Arrival, it's bit for bit taken from a short story from F.Herbert (beside the twist end). Remember the worst part of the movie?  The army guy trying to blow the alien.... Yeah me neither. It's a weak plot. It's also weak in F.Herbert story. But it's proof, they ripped the original material without elevating it much

Since I'm on F. Herbert. The "Whipping star" book is about weird alien : stars (sound like Solaris, but it's not). You might also enjoy reading his short stories with aliens

sci-fi is sometime spot on prediction; I'll wear that ugly t-shirt, as soon it's out

I rather have all the links to every article on the subject in one place. Plus, it seems future new article will also shown with that link

Just discovered

Zu ashe, Zu Staub

from the piano riff at the start, to the lyrics, to the change of rythm in the middle, it is hypnotizing

nice beat, and nice song, I wish it was longer

    Myth: Talking about suicide may give someone the idea.

    Fact: You don’t give a suicidal person morbid ideas by talking about suicide. The opposite is true—bringing up the subject of suicide and discussing it openly is one of the most helpful things you can do.

    Source: SAVE – Suicide Awareness Voices of Education

This is the most counter intuitive stuff I read about suicide prevention. So I wanted to share

You HAVE to use the word "suicide" .. "are you thinking about suicide?".. instead of belittling their pain with "you dont think about doing something silly?"
