WhiskeyBoy: Genetically modified foods are a good thing. A VERY VERY good thing. If you think otherwise, and campaign to force the world to adhere to your belief, you're helping to contribute to the global starvation problem. Yeah I said it.

Also if you use the term "frankenfood" I will not take your argument seriously.


Genetically modified food, like nearly all technologies is an entirely neutral thing, what is good or bad is how it is used. And right now it is used, mostly (there are notable exceptions), to line rich corporation's coffers with more money. Damn the consequences to public health, the environment, sustainability, nutritional value, farmers, livestock, and whatever else removes so much as a penny from the bottom line.

For the record I don't much like the word either, as it is designed to elicit an emotional reaction to sway public opinion, when there are much, much better reasons to call into question the current use of GMOs.

The proper way to eat a Goldfish cracker is similar to the technique to eat a sunflower seed. Turn the Goldfish on it's site in your mouth and crack it along the hemispherical axis into two identical pieces. Then crunch in silent pleasure

Its a meaningless marketing term. People who can't figure that out deserve to be fleeced.

HAMMERTOE: Hate to burst your bubble, but everything in existence is "natural". That is, it exists in nature. The only thing that is not "natural":

Religion.

That's right. The most toxic radioactive sludge in existence is every bit as "natural" as rabbit poop. Why? Because it is a byproduct of a living organism or a group of organisms. It is made of elements found in nature, and undergoes natural processes.


HOLY FARK, seriously? You're gonna be THAT guy?
