Am I the only idiot on the open message boards

Wow...quite difficult out there on the message boards. Lots of bro science, and they travel in packs. They attack you in packs, too. I fight back asking for peer reviewed evidence...and that's where they trip and fall on their face...and it just gets them angrier. Anyone else experience this?

    I can honestly say I only come to this board, but I've heard what you're saying from a few people.
    It's too bad that it's like.

    Apparently, the facile concept that people's metabolisms are not identical is not universally acknowledged.

    Yeah...when will the CICO framework finally die...seriously.

    Btw...Mel tome? Omg....heaven.

    I sometimes wonder onto the fun boards and every now and then if I see a keto post under new, I will advice them to come here for more info.

    This is a good thing.....That's how I found the board, so it's definitely good to get it out there once in awhile for the people that are looking for a place to get info and resources.

    Since you're a Mel Torme fan, you may already know this. A year or so ago, I ran across what I think was Mel's only movie appearance: "Good News" with June Allyson, Peter Lawford and a terrific cast singing and dancing DaSilva/Brown/Henderson songs. Mel wasn't required to do much in the way of acting in this musical romp but he was very much a plus to the film.

    Haven't seen that one. Thanks for the tip!

    He made quite a few cameo appearances on TV, but I believe he also had several movie credits. His recordings stand up amazingly well, especially the tracks with Marty Paich's killer bands.

    Great nickname, too. No one would ever be tempted to call me "Velvet"; "Fog" on the other hand....

    This is the only board that makes sense to me. I stay away from the " Would you date the above post " sites.

    Haha I blocked the chitchat section, my eyes were starting to hurt from all the rolling i was doing. I would rather not see those ridiculous posts.
