At work.

Only sporadically been following this thread and its 'Walter'.

What I find interesting is the slow emergence of the tag line beggining to end each of Walters posts.

A habit of such mentalities surfacing?

Or an old banned mentalities habits resurfacing?

Consider

You often find yourself laughing at and/or talking to yourself, Walter?

And what dance are those one thousand and one yellow daffodils doing in front of you? (need this for diagnostic purposes, you know)

Why are we discussing nutrition studies from the 1970s? We didn't even know about mTOR, SIRT1, and AMPK until the 1990s, didn't map the human genome until 2003, and are only now learning how to epigenetically manipulate these genes to our advantage with nutrients. What nutritional study from the 1970s could possibly be relevant today? Any serious nturitionist today would be embarrassed to cite any study from the 1970s.

Why would I be pissed off? Technopharmacology has reversed the effects of my Type 2 diabetes, resulted in 90 lbs of weight loss, and given me the best life extension drug we know of. I'm not sure why that should piss me off. Being pissed at that would mean I'm an idiot.

My two sisters, one of which lost her husband to complications from Type 2, would never criticize or get pissed at the diabetes and heart associations, USDA, National Academy, American Medical, American Association for the Advancement of Whatever. Not in a million years.

Now, getting pissed at their anti-authoritarian brothers? You bet.

I think we can all be grateful for one thing. The source of that 60 year anecdote was the United States Congress and not the Roman Catholic Church.

The anecdote has been extended for another season.

Science fails when adopting a creed.

They are very closely related. I would share these three stories with my 6th grade science class as a way to convey the beauty and scope of science.

While setting up an analytical lab in a medical school, I was introduced to a cardiologist, a really nice fellow. I was later told that he taught a graduate level astrophysics course on the main campus. That was his PhD, but he always had a fascination with the human heart. So, on to medical school.

My grandfather considered medical training during his undergraduate years. He changed his mind and traveled from British Columbia to Yale for his Geology PhD, awarded in 1927.

From my brother, the offset pressman, I borrowed a physics course taught by Alex Filippenko of UCLA. He made a special effort to thank the backyard astronomers for their special contributions to his field of observational astrophysics. I am not even sure he described them as amateurs, but there was no comment on their lack of academic training. I thought it was really cool how he emphasized the importance of these people to his field. Think of all those people keeping the Filippenkos of the world honest.

I do this to convey to the class that science is all encompassing. One field cannot be separated or isolated from another. It cannot be done. They are all interrelated.

Well that certainly explains everything we need to know about your credibility as a poster, if nothing else.
