EvilEgg: Which I hear is coming soon, so no worries the class of 2050 will not be fat and stupid.
EvilEgg: Get over it, RoundUp ain't going away until it becomes ineffective.Which I hear is coming soon, so no worries the class of 2050 will not be fat and stupid.
DubyaHater: Surprise, surprise. A chemical that can cause a weed to wilt in two hours is toxic to humans. I still won't stop using it though. Stuff is awesome.
pag1107: Oh wow, a sensational claim, let's have a look at the source. Hmm, published in an open access "journal" by authors describing themselves as an "independent scientist" and a computer programmer. Yeah I'm gonna call BS on this. Exposing ourselves to all these chemicals probably isn't a very good idea, but this is not solid research against it.
Ker_Thwap: First, I hate "scientific" claims that don't provide citations. Second, I hate perfectly manicured green lawns.
Mr Guy: bacteria in your stomach.
Magorn: because Monsanto has genetically engineered plants that can produce it all on their own!
utah dude: Mr Guy: bacteria in your stomach.stomach. bacteria? helicobacter? what? are u good at teh science?
Mr Guy: Not when I'm typing quickly, reading a journal on one screen, and mocking it on the other while waiting for a compiler...
IdBeCrazyIf: EvilEgg: Which I hear is coming soon, so no worries the class of 2050 will not be fat and stupid.Thanks
big pig peaches: I'm gonna say bullshiat. This is about as legitimate as saying vaccinations cause autism.I'm not saying the stuff is harmless, I would just like to see an actual scientific study done by actual scientists./besides, I ain't weeded by hand.// still don't use it on the veggie garden
HypnozombieX: I thought it was odd that my Botany professor who otherwise seemed like kind of a hippy told us that these pesticides were basicly harmless because all they did was interfere with plant hormones.
blatz514: I thought all of those were blamed on binge drinking and red meat.
Kibbler: Because the replacement product will really be, this time we mean it, no joke, clean, cheap and safe./honest//hint: It's Agent Orange
Rootus: DubyaHater: Surprise, surprise. A chemical that can cause a weed to wilt in two hours is toxic to humans. I still won't stop using it though. Stuff is awesome.Two hours? I've never had roundup work that fast. It's reliable, but it takes a couple days to really see any noticeable wilting, and a week or two before the weeds are completely dead.
MacWizard: blatz514: I thought all of those were blamed on binge drinking and red meat.That was last year. This year, the veggies are poison so binge drinking and red meat are the way to go.
SpectroBoy: Thanks MonsantoObama!
SithLord: Monsanto is above the law thanks to Obama. Suck it haters!
This text is now purple: Kibbler: Because the replacement product will really be, this time we mean it, no joke, clean, cheap and safe./honest//hint: It's Agent Orange2-4-D, which is one of the active ingredients in Agent Orange, and is the competitor to Round-Up, works differently. Some weeds which are immune to Round-Up are slaughtered by 2-4-D (horseweed, poke). On the other hand, some grasses which Round-Up murders shrug off 2-4-D like nothing happened.
Edge.bot: Roundup immune weeds are spreading quietly all over the states currently, and there a barley contained panic about what to do.
