David Avocado Wolfe is, well, I don’t know what he is. But essentially nothing that comes out of his mouth bears any resemblance to the truth. So occasionally when I’m feeling lazy on a Monday I’ll just go for the low-hanging fruit of (a) picking a topic and (b) seeing a few things Mr. Wolfe has to say about that topic. Today: Gravity.

Exhibit A: On why bats and possums don’t get arthritis.

“Arthritis has to do with gravity, which is a toxin, and as soon as you get upside down to take gravity a toxin and you turn it into a medicine. That’s yoga.” (@3:40ish)

Exhibit B: On why salt is more important than gravity.

“The reason why the oceans are salty, that’s what’s needed to hold the water onto the Earth. If that didn’t happen, the water would levitate right off the Earth, that’d be the end of it. The salt holds it on, in the same way it holds it into our body.”

People pay to see lectures given by this man, and not because he’s a walking, talking, drinking game.

Happy Monday, everyone.
