Sterile moths... this is just the government's way of putting mothball manufacturers out of business.

/hardest part about mothball manufacturing is getting their little legs apart.

Sterile bugs is an old pest control method. Nice to see the internet catching up to decades old farming techniques.

Well, the article is about the factory. Not the mode of action for the control method.

I had one that garnered over a dozen hits from TF'rs and then went red, but this one they greened.

I can never figure the mods out, I just thank them for helping me out when I am jonesing for green.

Here's a couple of recent reds I thought were interesting:

The smallest legal apartments in California might be 160 sq feet of "Smart space", with a cool video showing it's features and many of the mistakes they made in prototyping it

50 years ago today, John Glenn becomes the first US Astronaut to orbit the earth

Jew Lake, Jew Basin, Jew Eat are top contenders as residents of New Hampshire town seek to rename Jew Pond

A thoughtful, rational, respectful, easy to read, easy to follow, fairly sophisticated, explanation of the "two sides" of the global warming debate. You've clicked to foobies already, haven't you?

FTA: "Knipling realized that if the bugs couldn't breed, then their colonies would quickly weaken and die. His boss thought the idea was nuts, but Knipling kept on, using a cast-off X-ray machine to see if he could sterilize the bugs."

Ack, why did I read that? I was phobic of flying creatures even before I got to this line: "But before they're showered over the fields, they spend about 2.5 minutes in a radiation chamber"

Now I'll be having nightmares about being smothered by billions of irradiated moths.

let the cotton inustry go belly up. for years they have been fighting to keep hemp illegal to American farmers. Hemp doesn't require pesticides, cotton contribues 75% of the chemicals that go into our oceans from pesticides and fertilizer. Hemp requires neither. Hemp clothes feel like cotton and wear like iron.

Corn is driving up the price of beef because it is used to make ethanol. Hemp makes 100 times the amount of ethanol as corn per acre.

I'd be a lot more interested in the tiny apartments and Jew Lake basin, but then you're more interesting than moth factories anyway.

Keep trying.

The tiny apartment video is interesting if only because the guy who designed it is really honest about all the mistakes they made (mirrors that won't open because a light fixture is in the way) and stuff like that. And they made a lot of mistakes. But it's a pretty small and industrial looking apartment, I think I'd like something else.

I loved the Jew Lake headline.

Hemp doesn't require pesticides? Really? And by doesn't require presumably he means to get the best yield. I somehow doubt that.
