bipedalhumanoid To assess the potential of herbicide-red with a weed that is resistant to herbicides? Pull it out by hand? I don't think so. A country like india should not have been involved in this industry in its infancy. That's bad economic management and not a good reason to ignore the potenti...

So, in your (GM?) mind, all scientists are good, moral people, i.e., normal human beings - and all politicians are bad? I am neither a scientist nor a politician, but I have enough humanity in me to know that that crazy woman scientist (on the Ch4 prog) was a clone, par exellence! I wonder what lab...
