"Oh, there is a brain all right. It's just that the brain is made out of meat!"
"So... what does the thinking?"
"You're not understanding, are you? The brain does the thinking. The meat."
"Thinking meat! You're asking me to believe in thinking meat!"
"Yes, thinking meat! Conscious meat! Loving meat. Dreaming meat. The meat is the whole deal! Are you getting the picture?"
Secret Life of Gravy: Unfortunately, notsnot, public pools are actually shutting down due to a combination of drought and city/state revenue loss.
I know! We can combine the dying Post Office with the need for walking! Every citizen carries some mail! It's a win-win.
Rustic Etruscan: I'm picturing Oddjob from Goldfinger as its enforcer. Maybe it's the Wagyu beef reference.

Nevertheless, dietary CHO does not generally increase an individual’s fat storage by de novo lipogenesis, even after ingestion of CHO-rich diet for 3 days,38 and fat deposited in the adipose tissue comes mainly from ingested lipids. Only after 7 days CHO overfeeding, body glycogen stores increase by ∼500 g, and appreciable de novo lipogenesis begins.38 After 7 days on high-CHO low-fat diet (CHO 77%, lipid 5%, and protein 18% kcal), about 50% of the CHO intake (∼500 g) is oxidized and the remaining 50% is used for de novo lipogenesis.39 Nevertheless, such large amounts of CHO are usually not spontaneously eaten, because such bulky food with its great satiating effect reduces desire for overconsumption and limits the energy intake. Thus, the human body can easily accommodate the daily ingestion of relatively large amounts of CHO without having a need to convert CHO to fat.
In contrast to the high CHO diet that stimulates CHO oxidation, high-fat diet does not stimulate fat oxidation. A supplement of 50 g margarine (containing 40 g fat) to a breakfast providing 75 g CHO and 20 g protein fails to promote the use of fat as a metabolic fuel.40 Fat utilization does not appear to be regulated acutely, and fat added to a relatively normal meal is largely stored.
