Who would you most like to see at AHS, aka the PANTS Party?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 22, 2011 at 10:05 PM

EDIT Aug 2, 2011 - Does anyone know if you are locked into the room for the day or if you can switch rooms from session to session? I definitely hope we can go mobile. Also, why on Earth would they schedule Stephan Guyenet and Emily Deans in the same timeslot....ah yes, because God and/or Darwin (you can choose) hate me.


Here is the speaker schedule for AHS (to clarify for pervs like Meredith - Ancestral Health Symposium) - http://ancestryfoundation.org/Schedule.html

I???m really bummed Kurt Harris bailed, but there will still be a lot of great presenters. Even more importantly many of y???all will be there, so I can finally put a name to the face (particularly Kamal, though he will always be a hot French chick to me).

QUESTION - Regardless of whether you???re attending, which presenter would you be most eager to see and why? Write-ins are welcome but I am referring to scheduled presenters

As much as I totally have a man crush on Stephan Guyenet (hey, I thought we were in the trust tree!), I don???t think I need a ???whole ???nother??? primer on Food Reward after thoroughly reading parts 1 through???lost count. I???m going to force myself to attend the sessions with presenters who I do not routinely follow/read so I get a different perspective and maybe even learn something new. Crazy talk!

Being a contrarian like many of us Paleo folk, I actually am looking forward to Don Matesz???s presentation. I foresee 4 possibilities

1) He pulls a Mission Impossible and turns out to be Dean Ornish - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOmNYE9Hhhg

2) He???s really a male version of a Fembot working for the USDA. To wit, a Manbot - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ONo_cA6qAU

3) He provides substantive and thoughtful commentary that helps me understand his radical about-face

4) He is a let down and I've lost 45 minutes of my life that I can never recover

Ok, I know, I know. The likely answer is clear???.he is a Manbot. Yeah baby!


Also, not that anyone asked for my opinion, I think next year they should reconsider the name to be the P.A.N.T.S. Party ??? People Against Neolithic Toxic Substances - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKgurjb8TCs

If nothing else, you are all invited to my pants party anytime you would like.

BTW ??? I don???t think there is anything more Paleo than a little levity. Life is serious enough. Laugh for (insert Omniscient being of choice here)???s sake! Then we can all go back to debating politics, religion, etc. concurrently with reading the latest PubMed article about leptin resistance, dopamine receptors, NAFLD, and the tweaking of macronutrient ratios to 0.0001% accuracy. Or at least that's what I will be doing.

Peace out, Aravind (aka GW)

I really, really doubt we're locked into one room all day. In my experience conferences don't really work that way. If we are instructed to do this I will just ignore them.

It would be hilarious if she started heckling him during his presentation. "What do you mean don't add fat to your meal? And you call yourself a Frenchman!? We should start calling you Stevie G or something!"

Glad to be of service and am looking forward to all the (in)appropriate moments that you use it. As it's late and I'm feeling generous, and dry eyed twitchy waiting for The Orange Envelope.. I give you "Fanny Pack" out of my arsenal. You know.. I'm really going to have to put my glass of water down before I read your posts as my laptop is going to blow up one of these times.

@J - that was an ancillary and unintended benefit of the post. I would love to take credit for my "cunning linguist" skills, but I'm afraid I cannot do so in this instance. Rest assured that now I am armed with this knowledge of the meaning of "pants", I will DEFINITELY find an (in)appropriate moment to use it

So.. umm.. am I the only one that keeps having giggle fits off the title of this post? Pants = vagina in the UK. And as the artist formerly known as Aravind wrote it.. I suspect that he intended this double entendre and well.. I salute you GWA.

Okay, we're getting away from paleo here, but I need to say this. There is NO SUCH THING as naan in America. I am talking about TERROIR. Unless you have a sweaty man in an undershirt shoving that dough into a flaming hole of dirt, while performing a sustained hack squat, you do not have a naan.

Since we're going out on a theoretical limb here, I'm going to take it one branch further. I'd like to see Charles Darwin present. It would be so cool to see the perspective of the OG paleo mack (even if he didn't recognize it himself).

Other than that, and Kurt Harris, darn near everyone is presenting. (including many paleohackers! chris master-j, melissa, richard nikoley, etc etc). Is Paul Jaminet going to be there? That might be one possibility.

A lot of that looks great. I would most of all want to see Emily Deans and Jaime Scott on diet, lifestyle, and resiliency. They're both extremely interesting and the topic is one that I'm interested in. Nora G, Seth Roberts and anything else on the mind would be my bias.

Also Melissa on butts and poo is a must.

Darnit there are so many great wants. head esplode
