Sleep? I’ll sleep when I’m dead!

PaleoPathologist has some vivid memories from his seven years at Duke Medical School. One is the sound coming through the back wall of his apartment starting at 10 at night; the adjoining unit housed some fellow medical students. They claimed to start studying at 10 PM. Paleopathologist was studying the backs of his eyelids at 10PM on a weeknight.  The other little vignette was walking into the Seely G. Mudd Medical Library and seeing one of his classmates asleep, his head on an open medical text, and drool pooling on the page!sleep

PrimalProgrammer asks PaleoPathologist: What is this Paleo thing anyway?


PrimevalGeoPhysicist, PaleoPathologist, and PrimalProgrammer captured a few years back at Tribal Rite celebrating 50th Birthday of PrimevalGeoPhysicist. PrimalProgrammer  wrote recently with a question:

First I’d like to find out:  What is a “Paleo” Diet? 

     I haven’t really read up on it. Is it wandering through forests, picking up walnuts and strawberries off the bushes, hunting for food, and having a great time with the guys and fermented honey booze back at the caves? (I’m visualizing the starting part of 2001: A Space Odyssey here.)

    What’s new about the PaleoDiet, especially compared to Atkins / South Beach high protein, very low carb diets?
