Podcast #508: Break Out of Your Cage and Stop Being a Human Zoo Animal

The human body is capable of doing a wide variety of movements, in a variety of environments. But my guest today argues that most modern people only do a few movements each day, commonly find themselves stuck in sterile surroundings, and that these confinements are sapping our physical and psychological health. His name is Erwan Le Corre and he’s the founder of the MovNat physical fitness system and the author of the book The Practice of Natural Movement: Reclaim Power, Health, and Freedom. T...

The science of why human breasts are so big

Breasts are uniquely human — more than 5,000 mammals inhabit this planet, yet Homo sapiens are the only life forms with permanent breasts.  Every other mammal develops temporary breasts during ovulation or nursing in order to produce milk for their young.  Watch the video above to learn why humans evolved to have breasts and what they're actually made of.  Following is a transcript of the video. Breasts come in different shapes and sizes, but there's one thing they all have in common: They are...

Saturday Brunch, May 12, 2018

Hello, friends, and welcome to the weekend. How about some nice brunch? We even have a nice chocolate fountain: Our brunch has a theme today. I’ve been reading a little Chesterton this month, and reminded of how insanely gifted he was in expressing deep ideas with clarity, brevity, and wit. I mean, seriously, is there anyone of the last 200 years more quotable? So, our theme for the brunch is Chesterton quotes. Think of them as little hors d’oeuvres sprinkling throughout the lunch bar. Let’s st...

Why are human breasts so big?

Breasts come in different shapes and sizes. But there's one thing they all have in common. They are unique to humans. More than 5,000 mammalian species inhabit this planet. Yet, Homo sapiens are the only life forms with permanent breasts. Some may call this human anomaly sexy. But it also begs the question: Why are human breasts so big and were they an evolutionary mistake? Every other mammal develops temporary breasts during ovulation and/or nursing. Basically, their purpose is to produce mi...

Mass tourism is at a tipping point – but we’re all part of the problem | Martin Kettle

Unless we rethink our holiday choices, the damage and destruction to global beauty spots can only growNearly 30 years ago, researching for a Guardian series on global population pressures, I interviewed the zoologist Desmond Morris. During that interview, Morris said something that was hard to forget. “We have to recognise,” he said, “that human beings may be becoming an infestation on the planet.” Related: Only governments can stem the tide of tourism sweeping the globe | Elizabeth Becker Co...

Board Question #86587: Where did you get most of your sexual education from? ...

Q: Dear 100 Hour Board,Where did you get most of your sexual education from? Parents? Friends? Books? Did you feel like it was accurate or enough? (Did that change if/when you got married?)-Health class? A: Dear friend, I read a lot of newspaper advice columns growing up (don't ask why), and that filled me in on some of the social aspects of sex (what "cheating on someone" means, or the fact that "sleeping together" presumably means more than actual sleeping). In terms of the actual mecha...

Richard Dawkins wishes he'd named his "The Selfish Gene" book "The Immortal Gene" instead

Matt Ridley, author of The Red Queen and a Conservative member of the House of Lords, reflects on Richard Dawkins' groundbreaking book about evolution, The Selfish Gene, which was published 30 years ago. From Nature: The origin of The Selfish Gene is intriguing. Dawkins revealed in the first volume of his memoirs, An Appetite for Wonder, that the idea of selfish genes was born ten years before the book was published. In 1966, the Dutch biologist Niko Tinbergen asked Dawkins, then a research a...
