Social Notes

I appeared on the Onnit Podcast with
Kyle Kingsbury
to talk about my mission.

Everything Else

Belarusian man beats
muscle-up world record
with 26 in a row.

American man
unofficially beats
a world record by running 10 marathons in 10
days, averaging under 3 hours for each.

Another American man
trounces them all
, finishing the 2,181 mile-long Appalachian
Trail in 45.5 days while carrying a 25 pound pack and completely
supporting himself (no team following along with food and shelter).
For a great film about the previous record holder, watch this.

I wonder if
they still say
“namaste.”

Things I’m Up to and Interested In

Good advice for those who need it: How
Jocko Willink recommends
you get yourself to get out of bed
when you don’t feel like it.

Finding I found interesting: Psychology’s research replication
crisis
just got worse
.

I’m totally unsurprised: High-fat diet (that’s actually also
high-carb and also the fat comes from soybean oil)
destroys microbial diversity
in the gut. “Move away from
high-fat diets,” indeed.

A film project I’m supporting because it’s that important:
Diana Rodger’s
Sacred Cow
, a film (actually, now a docuseries) about meat and
environmental sustainability that promises to counter the
overwhelming barrage of vegan anti-meat propaganda. We need
this.

This is jarring: Gymnastics
in the 1950s alongside gymnastics in 2016
. Bonus: Banned skills in
gymnastics
.

Question I’m Asking

What’s your mission?

Comment of the Week

“Increase ferritin with an iron man and an iron pan. That’s
Mark’s iron plan.”

– Pretty catchy,
Clank
