Comment Re:"Police found Purinton 80 miles away at Applebe (Score 2) 683

Keep going. There's more:

a : a family, tribe, people, or nation belonging to the same stock

b : a class or kind of people unified by shared interests, habits, or characteristics

: any one of the groups that human beings can be divided into based on shared distinctive physical traits

2: a group of individuals who share a common culture or history

3: a major group of living things

These are all from the very same page you linked. If you're going to use a dictionary to slap someone down, make sure you understand every way the dictionary says the word can be used. Not just the one that suits you.

Comment Re:American fasting diet? (Score 3, Informative) 144

Hell.. 1000 calories is nothing like fasting.. you can easily live on that 365 days a year..

Baseline for zero activity adult patients is 1800 calories per day. This assumes a hospitalized patient in bed all day. 1000 calories is just over half of what you need so it IS "fasting" even if it's not "starvation". You can NOT survive 365 days a year on 1000 calories per day.

Hey, just because you think it's a long walk to the grocery store, doesn't make that any more of a absolute yardstick.

Tell that to a quadriplegic. The back yard may be closer than the grocery store but that still doesn't mean he's gonna get there any time soon. Without the wheelchair and a motor or someone to push, all distances greater than zero are out of reach.
