Mentioned this before, but as a response to those insisting our ancestors mainly lived on veggies,

might point them here.  Williamson did a lot of research for his new book, and it includes
However, it's obvious from the evidence that vegetarianism is just a modern ideal. No matter how many believers bleat about it being "natural," it not only wasn't natural then, it was a complete myth. There just aren't plants in the temperate or boreal latitudes that you can gather for enough protein, fat and calories to stay alive. Even if you could, you won't find them in December. This is a world nothing like our own. No domesticated grains, no herded animals. Even modern "wild" berries are usually contaminated, and sweeter, because of cross-pollination with domestic breeds. I've had vegetarians insist we were mostly vegetarian at the time, but they're unable to name the plant species we allegedly derived our calories from, especially fat. I'll save you time: There are almost none. Gathering non-fruit comestibles is a net calorie loss and a waste of time.

Most of the Paleo diet people won't be happy either. There was a lot of meat, but most of it was stringy and lean. Humans need fat for brain development and to maintain the skin, among other organs. When you can't get gorged, winter-ready animals with a layer of fat to eat, you wind up eating brains, livers and kidneys. They also provide salt, minerals and flavor. Hunter gatherers cherish the organ meats for nutrition. You'll want a lot of fatty fish, too.

After a week of this diet, I was ready to kill someone for some french fries or a peanut butter sandwich. That ought to set the vegan types howling.

After the murders in the Aurora, CO theater, the Brady clowns got with the family of one of the dead and decided to sue some people for not being mindreaders(at long distance, yet).  They lost, bigtime, and it's costing them.
A federal judge ordered the parents of a Aurora, Colorado, theater shooting victim to pay court costs and attorney fees as a result of a lawsuit filed last year, and the defendants in the case say the family owes around a quarter of a million dollars.
Miguel has this from the decision:
Even if the defendants did not have immunity under the federal or state statutes, the Phillipses never showed any of the online stores knew or reasonably should have known about Holmes’ potential criminal acts or misuse, the judge said.
Additionally, the plaintiffs never alleged any individual defendant had knowledge of Holmes’ other online purchases or the firearms he bought offline, the judge said.
“There can be no question that Holmes’s deliberate, premeditated criminal acts were the predominant cause of plaintiffs’ daughter’s death,” Judge Matsch wrote, but “[n]either the Web nor the face-to-face sales of ammunition and other products to Holmes can plausibly constitute a substantial factor causing the deaths and injuries in this theater shooting.”
Miguel also wonders if the Brady clowns gave these people any idea of the consequences if they lost?  And what they'll do now?

And the CSGV, of course, is having fits.  Because feels, and this takes a weapon out of their hands.

Explain canine teeth and tell me that we ate mainly vegetables.

Over on bookface Williamson went round & round with a couple of people who insisted the cutting & tearing teeth actually mean nothing, "We're meant to primarily eat plants", etc. Downright nasty about it at times, too.
