nealzebub: Throw the switch, Igor

"It's pronounced eye-gor"


You're putting me on.

No, it's pronounced "Fronkensteen."

Do you also say "Froderick"?

No. . ."Frederick."

Well, why isn't it "Froderick Fronkensteen"?

It isn't; it's "Frederick Fronkensteen."

Werewolf?

There.

What?

There, wolf. There, castle.

Why are you talking that way?

I thought you wanted to.

No, I don't want to.

Suit yourself. I'm easy.

crabsno termites: old_toole: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says genetically modified salmon eggs from P.E.I. are unlikely to harm the environment, opening the door for a scientifically engineered salmon that grows twice as fast as normal.


What could go wrong?

Absolutely nothing. FTA: "In its report the FDA said the facilities in P.E.I. and Panama are secure."

And you doubt?

Amos Quito: mgshamster: whither_apophis: Selective breeding != gene splicing

Don't think so, huh? What's the difference, biochemically?


There's a reason that crossbreeding moose with penguins is illegal.

I only eat salmon from a can, cooked in patties in large amounts of CRISCO.

Now I know what it feels like to be God!

But, really, in all seriousness, don't let those salmon bite you; because if you do, you will change on the next full moon.

you have pee hands: It's sort of weird to ban genetically modified food when most calories that go into our bodies come from a source that looks nothing like the original wild plant or animal before human tinkering.


Or to look at it another way, genetic modifications of food-organisms isn't actually banned. You can hapazardly throw species and species-hybrids together repeatedly for years in hopes of getting the combination of traits you want without the traits you don't want with little or no understanding of the underlying mechanisms that form those traits, and it's perfectly fine. It's only banned if you know precisely what trait you want and how to get it directly.

Or put yet another way: Genetic modifications of food is perfectly fine if you are sufficiently clumsy at it.
