    Bob, currently altering genes manually (in a lab) tends to end up creating carcinogenic chemicals in the foods, at least when it comes to fruits and veggies.

    UK Police Arrest Teen Over Call of Duty Hacking

    Why is this always what the media says about stuff that's newly illegal? "...often a precursor to more serious computer-related offenses" If you take out the word "computer" and insert the names of other currently illegal things you get the "reasoning" for making things illegal. I'm not...

    The Prince in the games was white. End of story Ang, The Last Airbender was white. End of story. Ang's friends were Inuit so rant on their live-action actors all you like.
