(AsiaOne)   First they put the bar code on canned food and I said nothing because I don't use canned food. Then they put bar codes on pets and I said nothing because I don't have pets. Then they started putting bar codes on trees   (asiaone.com) divider line 24

I don't use trees.

Shouldn't that be bark code?

But the Maples want more sunlight, and the Oaks ignore their plea.

Am I doing it right?

Did the poster read past the first few lines? There is no bar code, it is a DNA test. Stupid that the writer even said bar code as it is a poor reference.

Stupid? Really?

Fark needs to offer a remedial course in appropriate tag selection.

Yup, that's a tree alright!

"Stupid" best describes the subby here.

leave the trees alone!

I want to slap you really hard, subby.

One upping that.
Old, or new trend?

I said nothing because I live in a condo.

It's DNA subby. And it's nothing new either. I worked at a large printing plant a while back and at least since 2003 with the Sustainable Forest Initiatives and other chain-of-custody programs, DNA has been used at paper mills to check the pulp as it's made into rolls. Why yes, it is rather entertaining to watch "paper cops" confiscate 1500# rolls in your plant because .0002% apparently contains some rare tree DNA from Brazil. Wish I could say it's bullshiat and an exaggeration but it's not. 3rd world pulp suppliers try to mash in anything thinking no one will notice.

Deoxribonucleic acid, otherwise known as DNA, is nature's barcode. It is inherent in nearly every cell in every organism, and could just be our answer to curbing illegal timber trade.

Did anybody else read this in Patrick Stewart's voice? It reminds me of the opening monologue of X-Men.

Not sure if they still do, but when I was there, all the trees on UK's campus had bar codes on them.

When they barcoded the trees I said nothing because I was too busy with ... figuring out how the language of ObamaCare which mandates you and I get a chip up our ass ... for their pleasure ...

Verbatim

Sunday March 21, 2010 the Senate Healthcare bill HR3200 was passed and signed into law the following Tuesday.

H.R. 3200 section 2521, Pg. 1001, paragraph 1.

The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the 'registry') to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that- ''is or has been used in or on a patient; ''and is- ''a class III device; or ''a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining."

A class II implantable device is an "implantable radio frequency transponder system for patient identification and health information." The purpose of a class II device is to collect data in medical patients such as "claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the Secretary."

Line 17, subparagraph B: "validating methods for analyzing patient safety and outcomes data from multiple sources and for linking such data with the information included in the registry as described in subparagraph (A)"

Going back to subparagraph A [right above subparagraph B], it says: "including in the registry, in a manner consistent with subsection (f), appropriate information to identify each device described in paragraph (1) by type, model, and serial number or other unique identifier;"

"The Secretary of the Health Human Services, acting through the head of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, shall adopt standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria for the electronic exchange and use in certified electronic health records of a unique device identifier for each device described in paragraph 1 (National Medical Device Registry), if such an identifier is required by section 519(f) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360i(f)) for the device."

Now on Page 503, section E Lines 13-17 and I quote: "encourage, as appropriate, the development and use of clinical registries and the development of clinical effectiveness research data networks from electronic health records, post marketing drug and medical device surveillance efforts".

Now lets look at section 163 of HR3200, which gives the government a direct electronic access to your bank account which will work in conjunction with an implanted chip.

Page 58 Lines 5 through 15 reads:

(D) enable the real-time (or near real time) determination of an individual's financial responsibility at the point of service and, to the extent possible, prior to service, including whether the individual is eligible for a specific service with a specific physician at a specific facility, which may include utilization of a machine-readable health plan beneficiary identity detection card; (E) enable, where feasible, near real-time adjudication of claims

"EFFECTIVE DATE.-The Secretary of Health and Human Services shall establish and begin implementation of the registry under section 519(g) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as added by paragraph (1), by not later than the date that is 36 months after the date of the enactment of this Act, without regard to whether or not final regulations to establish and operate the registry have been promulgated by such date."

Good Luck, ya'll

I want a bar code that gets me a free drink.

I won't say anything since I don't have trees.
