What's Causing the Rise In Obesity? Everything.

entmike Re:People who can't stop (926 comments)

Except none of the factors you mention have anything to do with childhood obesity.

So while these factors fit your case, we need to remember the scope of the problem. Not refuting anything you've added, just keeping perspective.

What's Causing the Rise In Obesity? Everything.

Look up dietary ketosis, please.

I've lost 60 lbs in 6 months doing LCHF diet. This was while still consuming the same caloric volume that I was prior to avoiding carbohydrates.

So by increasing fat consumption, and decreasing carbohydrates, yes I lost 60 lbs.

FAT alone does NOT make you fat. Elevated insulin levels + Fat/Sugar/Anything makes you fat. Control the insulin (via fasting, low carb, whatever), and cease storing fat.

Not true. It's not how much you consume, it's what you consume. If you do not understand this, you miss the entire point. LC diets change how your body gets its energy. Do some actual reading, as this DOES have hard scientific evidence to substantiate it. It is not simply calories in vs. calories out.

Could GPS Keep Tabs On Your Pets?

entmike Re:Get a leash! (218 comments)

I agree that owners should be responsible, however nobody is perfect and accidents can happen, as even perfect owners such as yourself can be prone to the unpredictability of animals. Especially for new owners, who even armed with basic common sense, might not be able to figure out that Fido is burrowing an escape tunnel under the fence, etc. I think it's an absolutely sound option to be able to find your loved pet in the event that it does get into mischief! Which is better? Finding your mischievous animal before he freezes to death scared or finding him, bringing him back home, learning from the mistake, and saving its life? It's just another way to bring piece of mind to the owner, keep dogs from becoming strays, and reducing road kill. Nobody is saying this is a magic bullet in pet ownership and care!!!

Is JavaScript Ready For Creating Quality Games?

entmike Re:Why not stick with flash? (165 comments)

Other than the "haha, I did X on a platform that isn't really meant for it" factor, why would any serious game developer choose the javascript-in-a-browser platform?

Probably the same reason that half of the stuff that you see on the web works. Because they "can".

What do your comments have to do with the technology at all except offer the already abundant rhetoric about the company itself? Oh wait, nothing.
