the baby boomer culture: how an entire generation literally will not shut up about young people doing things they enjoy

The Divorce Culture: how an entire generation couldn’t keep it together, and forgot how to not project their insecurities onto children.

The “I Am No Longer Young” Culture: How your generation will be doing this to the generations behind you in a mere 15 years.

I would rather spend one lifetime with you than face all the Ages of this world alone

Yeah, but you weren’t going to face all the Ages of this world alone. You were going to spend them with a bunch of your friends and family and, who knows, maybe some very nice, immortal Elf man.

shushgabby said: Although there's no evidence that there are risks to human health, there are still arguments against (some types of) GM crops. Some companies, Monsanto being a big one, modify their seeds so that the seeds of that crop cannot be collected and resown. This means that farmers have to return to the company each year to buy more seeds, and also means that a single (or a few) companies can 'own' our food sources. Is this a legitimate concern, or do most farms tend to buy new seeds each season anyway?

No company in the US is allowed to genetically modify a crop to produce non-viable seed. However, they can legally forbid farmers from collecting seed and planting from those seeds because farmers do not “own” the genes in the plant that they are planting. 

This is indeed really weird and questionable and I don’t think anyone 100% understands how that is affecting and might continue to affect food systems. So, yeah, I think there are issues with GM crops…they have to do with policy and government and law and economics. But the fight I end up fighting with anti-GM activists tends to be more alarmist “GM Food is Dangerous for Human Consumption” which is just not even a tiny bit true.

kuromikowaii said: Have there ever been any conclusive evidence that GMs are harmful? In terms of human health that is.

No. In fact there have been lots of studies that have indicated (as one would expect) that a plant that contains literally tens of thousands of proteins is not made dangerous by the addition of a few extra proteins.

stackedcrates said: I don't believe GM wheat is even commercially available right now. (Which is not to undermine the point that if it were, it would have been tested rigorously and found to be safe, but.)

Good lord, you’re right. I just assumed. Most of the GM crops in the US are corn, vegetable oil seed, cotton, tomatoes, sugar beets, potatoes, and soybeans.
