Researchers have assured us for decades that vegetarians are hEaLtHiEr than carnivores...

But in 1926, the British government investigated the differences between the Masai tribe of Kenya and the nearby Akikuyu.

The key variable was dietary.
The carnivorous Masai consumed mostly milk, meat, and blood. Their men were 5 inches taller and 23 pounds heavier than their neighbors, with narrower waists and broader shoulders. Dynamometer tests showed them to be 50% physically stronger.
Meanwhile, Akikuyu men ate a mostly vegetarian diet and were more likely to suffer from bone deformities, dental cavities, anemia, lung disease, ulcers, and blood disorders. They were rejected on medical grounds from service in the British army reserve at rates of 65%.

St Francis & the Wolf of Gubbio

Thread--
In the early 13th century, the Italian town of Gubbio was terrorized by a wolf. Not only had it killed livestock, but it started devouring humans as well! Anybody who went out beyond the city walls alone was not likely to make it back alive.
St. Francis felt much pity for the townspeople, and he was known to have a special connection to animals, so he decided to go find the wolf. Against the advice of nearly everyone, Francis made the sign of the cross and went forth from the city.

After the Crusaders conquered Jaffa, Saladin retreated to Jerusalem and contented himself with harassing Richard’s foraging parties.

In one case, a foraging party found itself outnumbered and Richard rode out with a party to aid them. Image
As they came upon the apparently hopeless scene, Richard’s men urged him not to join the fighting.

They said, “You will not succeed in rescuing them. It is better that they die alone than that you risk death in this attack, and so endanger the whole crusade.”
Richard could appreciate the argument, but he wasn’t made to sit on the sidelines while his men fought and died.

“I sent those men there,” he said. "If they die without me, may I never again be called a king.”

So he charged--and he and some of his men lived to tell about it.

I’d rather not even acknowledge this rumor, but the prevalence of it, even among based people, requires a response.

It has to do with Richard The Lionheart’s supposed orientation.

Thread--
There are a few reasons why this accusation has gained acceptance, and all of them are pretty easily answered.
1) Richard did not have an heir.

His marriage to Berengaria of Navarre appears to have been strained. Some suggest that Berengaria was barren, especially since Richard did acknowledge at least one illegitimate son.

I’ve been thinking about one of Faramir’s lines from The Two Towers.

He tells Frodo, “I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”
There’s a lot to unpack here. At first blush, this sentiment seems beautiful and utterly reasonable. A real warrior doesn’t love fighting more than he loves what he fights for. It also makes perfect sense coming from Faramir, whose brother loved glory a bit too much.
Something about it, however, doesn’t sit right.

A man must first love the things that he fights for. But Faramir says that he only loves those things.

To deny that there’s something beautiful in the glory of the warrior about whom they tell stories is strangely clinical.

As the world becomes increasingly grumpy, the courteous gentleman has the opportunity not only to make a difference in the lives of others, but also to distinguish himself.

Here are some thoughts (notes-to-self, really) on being that kind of man.
On greeting others with enthusiasm, like you're actually happy to see them--

On treating your conversations like they matter--
