- Low salt didn't impact hydration better than water.
- The concoction led to more urination than base-lined.
- Absolute weight loss proportional to the amount of salt after a minimum threshold. Defiantly a tool for dehydration.

Recently while I was watching Life of Pi, I got curious why drinking ocean salt water dehydrates you, while drinks with saline like Gatorade are marketed as having the ability to hydrate you better than plain old fresh water. According to Wikipedia, The original Gatorade is based on oral re-hydration therapy and I endeavoured to find out more. According to more literature, the quantity of salt is the deciding factor of re-hydration or dehydration.
From a scientific method perspective most of my experiments defiantly would not pass peer scrutiny. This experiment is part of a larger experiment towards understanding my personal motivational levers. Pi, UFC, celery salt plus other memes coming together into ideas. crossroads. The many senses. Beyond the 5 major senses. Synesthesia. Undiscovered senses like the 6th sense. Also tools to exercise other parts of the body, the way "fight or flight" reflex shuts down non-essential systems like digestion and immune system.
UFC fighters in particularly, fudge their weights prior to a fight to gain an advantage over the competition. Dehydrating before a weigh-in and re-hydrating after one. Possibly discover a new tool towards that effect.
Bloody Mary, the cocktail is a favourite drink of mine, and have to mention the place where I discovered celery salt.
I ran some tests on my own choosing to drink "water + ice + lemon juice + lemon slices + celery salt" on a regular basis while tying to keep a consistent lifestyle that minimizes multi variable effects of diet + water, exercise, sleep and humidity. The amount of celery salt, the theoretical variable that would change.
Lemon juice actual overlap with another experiment.
Celery salt another favourite of mine, a though back from a similar past experiment but with nitrates. Curiously, a few days ago while walking the halls of Toronto General Hospital, I saw a billboard asking for volunteers, for a study towards impact of nitrates on bone density.
Control variables measurements of weight, BMI, Bone Density, fat percent, and water volumes in vs. urine volumes out where loosely collected to gauge the effects including the extra attention I would pay to my mind and body.
The internal attention for me is the only real measurement I valued. A skill I perpetually want to hone and develop.
Not so interestingly while dehydrated, I experienced typical dehydration effects of headaches and a general feeling of lousiness. More interestingly I could taste saltiness after a bowel movement in my anus. Not a burning sensation but a salty one. Similar to the effect of the hot burning sensation one gets from eating very hot spices, at both ends. gives more meaning to tasting with your body.
"And you don’t just have taste buds on your tongue—they’re everywhere, from the roof of your mouth to your throat and stomach.

Trying to maximize the effects of Intermittent fasting (IF) or calorie restriction (CR) but minimising the time on either dieting protocol. I've tried protein restriction at the end of a fast. This seemed to personally increase the effects of fasting.
Methionine restriction a kind of indirect protein restriction that seems to show the same progress of calorie restriction (CR) according to some research papers.
Restricting the amino acid methionine, hinders the body's ability to synthesize protein (that of course is my understanding). Any missing amino acid involved in protein synthesis should have a similar effect.
Eating lots of asparagus, or drinking lots of asparagus juice causes your unine to smell like maple syrup. Maple syrup disease has similar effects but points to the bodies inability to metabolise key amino acids.
I imagine drinking asparagus juice after a fast of at least 16 hours would allow one to break the fast with a bit of protein and yet stretch the effect toward a longer fast.
I'm planing to put my hunch to the test by following the new protocol.
Wondering about slow growing cancers like chondrosarcoma and how chemotherapy is generally not a viable treatment.
Would it be possible to change the phenotype of the cancer and actually speed up their growth so that chemotherapy becomes effective.
In theory human growth factor or anabolic like steroids might do the trick.

love or like, get psyched, think, unzipped
if i were him or he was me
if i were her or she was me
some help, just a hint, an out of print
this or that, for a Glimpse
that and this, for a kiss

look and see, only me
A lullaby is a soothing song, usually sung to young children before they go to sleep, as a result they are often simple and repetitive.
I endeavor to follow the template of a lullaby but design with additional goals.
1. Priming for English sound recognition.
1. Popular syllables as word starts or word ends
2. All syllable sounds
2. Seeding with popular words
1. Top 10 words
2. Top 100 words
3. Positive primal story line.
1. Eat, sleep, play, try many times, and learning from failure
4. hand action or movement combined with singing
1. finger play
5. leveraging rhymes and tempo

I've been saving my homemade black garlic for the perfect recipe. For me the perfect recipe is a la minute. It just pops into my head. Lot's of inspiration, but for all intents and purposes, a very eureka moment. Today, I used it in my pistachio butter and it gave it a very special flavor. Like always I try to keep it in the paleo framework.
- 1/4 cup of pistachios
- 1/8 cup black garlic
- 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
- 1/2 cup cashews
- 2 tea spoons of celery salt
- Hemp oil
In a blender, puree the nuts, garlic and celery salt, to a fine powder. slowly poor in the hemp oil until the mixture turns into a butter like consistency.
Great on crackers, substitute for peanut butter, substitute for mayonnaise.

This paragraph is created by using popular English syllables from web. Focus is put on word start or word end syllables. The brain plays closer attention to these word parts in pattern recognition.
This paragraph is part of my early research in creating a next generation "Lullaby" that leverages cutting edge information technology from linguistics, neuroscience, and other scientific domains.
One goal of "Lullaby 2.0" is too have all the possible English syllables.
