Comment of the Week
“‘gets a little nervous telling people how much meat they eat.’ Pfffft – not this fella. I’ll deride people for their ignorance, tell them to stop being a mindless herd animal and why, evolutionarilly (?) speaking: meat + fire + decreased plant chewing muscle necessity (therefore allowing outward brain expansion in the absence of constraining chewing muscles bound to the sagittal crests) … made us who we are today.”
