The Tweet, on an account called s**tkrusesays (expletive partially deleted), stated:"security confiscated dynamite. talk won't be as explosive as one at PaleoFx. still have vial of Legionnaires for epic biohack. #lccruise12."
(The reference is to a fake stick of dynamite Kruse used as a prop in his talk at the recent Paleo FX conference.)
In an NBC News interview (see video and story here), Dr. Kruse compared the experience to an episode of the television drama series "24", saying they searched all of his belongings every nook and crevice of his room aboard the cruise ship. Carnival offered to fly Dr. Kruse to the next port, but he elected not to take them up on it (possibly because two of our conference days, including the one for Dr. Kruse's scheduled talk, were Monday and Tuesday).
According to news media, the FBI is making progress on the case.
That excitement aside, soon I'll be bringing you lots of details about the cruise, including capsules of each of the talks, and some of my fascinating conversations with fellow low-carb cruisers. I've met so many interesting people, hearing of the great grassroots work being done to promote low-carb eating, and the many, many lives which have been changed, and probably even saved, by turning their backs on the carb-based diet we've been encouraged to follow.
