    Would that raise be of the nature Wile E. got in “Sugar and Spies”?

    That only works until Billy Mack gets on the case.

    Profits? What are profits? That’s so old economy.

    Netflix, WeWork, Uber, dozens of other Wall Street darlings burn cash every day and have business plans published for their IPO’s which state they don’t know if they will ever make a profit.

    The system is broken and we’ve never seen this before – Oh, wait, we did see this, during the dotcom.

    The public are slow learners.

    I caught something about that. I believe they jailed the doctor.

    Editing out a known gene for something like cystic fibrosis and replacing it with a normal one from a consenting donor with a normal gene (which doesn’t get into the whole chimera issue) is something I don’t see as ethically questionable, but I don’t think what he did was of that nature.

    The main issue is how glyphosate (Roundup) is now everywhere, it’s even been found in breastmilk samples. The most prevalent GMO is “Roundup ready” which gets its resistance by producing a small amount of the compound.

    Also, GMO seems to remove some of the more beneficial traits.

    There is a difference between hybridization and genetic drift “modification” and using CRISPR to splice in traits from completely different orders or even fully synthetic ones.

    Oh. Oops.

    I didn’t say it was true, I said it was the closest to the truth. When dealing with bronze age humans, possibly even copper age or neolithic, that leaves a lot of room between the story and the truth.

    And the “clean” animals were seven breeding pair. You need to know your mythology if you want to refute it . . . you know, like socialism working?

    (sorry, I just couldn’t resist)

    I’ve spent enough time listening to long form interviews of her to know that declining to engage in “wasteful regime-change wars which don’t advance national security” does not equate to support.
