As you know, I have an extremely violent temper.
I recall it from my earliest days as a little boy and adolescent, when it was mostly invective.
But as I grew taller and fitter it was perceived as physical threat, which looking back it probably was. As a bigger chap with greater verbal dexterity, over the years, as you can imagine, I've landed myself into some trouble with the authorities because of it.
I prefer force and violence over polite debate. Violence, after all, works.
Why am I telling you this? In the last few months I've noticed a marked increase in the strength of my anger. Very fast, very hard. It's surprised even me.
But I note, with some amusement, that the violent reactions have almost perfectly coincided with my increased protein intake and weight-lifting regimen. The anger has grown in intensity just as my physique has grown in size.
My tolerance level is at zero.
