Odds and Ends 04

I have a theory about cravings. You know that body fat is deposited in layers, built up based on whatever was happening in our bodies at the time that wasn’t balanced out. Some of the garbage in our systems at that time is stored in the fat. When you start to lose weight, that garbage comes back out. If you find yourself hit with sudden cravings, it’s because your body is releasing from the fat certain markers that register in the brain as a craving for whatever you ate that helped build that lard at the time.

Anyway, I can tell when fat is being burned in my system by the odd flashes of craving for things I ate in the past, and refuse to eat now.

At least once every week in the past couple of months, I’ve ridden my bike out to Draper Lake. It’s not as if there has been no progress at all the bikeway, but darned little of it. You can see the evidence of work alright, but nothing like the first few months when the project started. There were easily 50 workers running all that equipment then; now I see evidence of about a dozen. It will certainly not make the window of completion at the first of the year.

I tested OpenSUSE on my Inspiron laptop, and it simply could not handle the task of hibernation. I also tested PCLinuxOS, but it has way too little software. Lots of stuff I depend on was not included, nor was there any access to the build libraries so I could compile the stuff I wanted. For now, this laptop is running Mint 19.1 Beta.

I want to develop a curriculum without actually writing a book. The objective is to counter some bad theology that is common among Western evangelicals. I’ve done it sort of piecemeal here on the blog, but I think we need to consider a more cohesive approach. I’d rather not do it alone, so if you are interested in helping, just point out theology issues that should be included. I’m not going to write a new theology; part of the problem is trying to herd everyone into one set of ideas. In this case, all we need to do is counter some bad attempts to do that.

    Interesting take on the cravings thing. If it is true, I think it’s a least a factor in what’s causing the “current” craving. As in, there are other things going on in your body, and environment too, that combine and roll up into that desire. It’s really hard to pin down because there are so many factors. The body really leads a heart-led existence, if you think about it 🙂
