I do not even know where to begin with how horrifyingly stupid this is. This is why we will not survive this century (at this rate if we make it through this decade it will be a miracle). And for the idiots who make claims that it is about feeding the world, that has already been proven to be BS, organic farming does not that no frankenfood and all of those third world countries have rejected GMO's, even the farmers in Haiti refused it saying it would be worse than what they had just went through. GMO's is a recipe for disaster, it's suicidal, and make no mistakes about it, it is about absolutely nothing but money. And someone needs to put a stop to it NOW.

"Organic"* farming is for self-aggrandizing liberal trash who can afford to waste 30% of the crop to pests. If it worked so well, Africa wouldn't be in a constant state of famine. Corn has been "genetically modified" for 10,000 years, yet you eat it. All the cereal grains, identically sized fruits that ripen at the same time, chickens with oversized breasts, are all "genetically modified." We just have better science now rather than trial and error. The grapefruit, banana, corn and broccoli were created by humans from inedible precursors. And Haiti? Seriously? They manage to be poorer than Cuba while being friends with the US. They're the last people to take advice from on any subject.

*All food is "organic." We can't digest inorganic material. The theft of this word for new age pseudo-scientific BS is one of the things that actually will lead to our end.

That said:  EWwwwwwww

I can see it being useful for kids, but it's rather icky from an adult POV.  Also, most of the immunities are passed from mother to child.  The milk is only a carrier, not the cause.

Physics, Bitches!

http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=36226 "Miracle or Scam?" That you even need to ASK that question is proof that Creationist and Greenie fucktardery are both anathema to education and should be eliminated using as much violence as necessary. And then some.

http://www.aardvark.co.nz/hho.shtml Damn. Not some actual science. That's not good for business.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water-fuelled_car What, it's really a hoax? Are you sure?

http://www.mikebrownsolutions.com/fish3.htm Remember that 100mpg carburetor? And the conspiracy to suppress it? Turns out it did exist, sort of, and worked, sort of, for a while, except when it would sometimes...explode.



If they actually taught science in school, these assclowns would get laughed at.

False Advertising!

Tony Stewart Racing is sponsoring the cheetah exhibit at the Indianapolis Zoo. Handsome creatures. All the ads feature a cheetah in a racing helmet.

Well, we went to the zoo today, and NONE OF THE CHEETAHS WERE WEARING THEIR HELMETS! Foul!

I figured it was just a promotional thing, so I went to the souvenir shop. They, did, in fact, have little stuffed cheetahs, but none of them were wearing racing helmets, either.

This is just totally unfair and has bummed me totally.

I think they're also missing a huge marketing opportunity, for both the zoo and TSR. I know a lot of car geeks who'd be on that if they did it.

Anyone know anyone at Tony Stewart Racing or the Indpls Zoo? Because I want my cheetah in a racing helmet, dammit.

Some very interesting genome research
