Car built with scooter tires... Scooter built with car tires...
Just not seeing it.
When Java was first becoming popular, I recall emphasizing how important it was to use the standard, well-documented, well-tested java.lang.String, rather than a custom String class as had been done in C++. Application domain experts started asking about strings that didn't fit in RAM (documents).
A great, tested component in one domain may require a significant redesign in a domain with other requirements.
Coding is a conceptual art-form, it's not about building a car with scooter tires, it's about upgrading vehicles to get the end result in a workable fashion. Try using spark plugs and pistons to get somewhere!
GP response to a direct question doesn't seem unreasonable, especially given the prominence of fasting in many religious traditions (judeo-christian-islam, hindu/buddhist, ...)

...and then the bacteria reverts to previous within a few days of returning to the previous diet. Gut bacteria adapts really rapidly to whatever you're eating, whether you do a "reset" in between or not.
..by adding a correction to the more accurate buoy data, generating a combined dataset that does not match trends in the satellite data, gold-standard terrestrial data, balloon data, or oceanic temperature data.
It also reduces the long-term temperature trend to the pre-1950 trend (i.e., pre-anthropogenic trend).
This is a paper that requires a significant degree of corroboration rather than simple endorsement because of its publication.
1950 is generally accepted by both AGW skeptics and proponents as a time before which human influence on climate was not discernable. That is, the warming trend before 1950 was natural, not human-caused.
AGW skeptics assert this places a burden of proof on AGW proponents to show that warming since 1950 is beyond what could naturally occur.
