From one of the sites

I refute the claims of the biotechnology companies that their engineered crops yield more, that they require less pesticide applications, that they have no impact on the environment and of course that they are safe to eat.

That's nice he ought to let the farmers know they can buy cheaper seeds and still do as well.

If it seems like I am laughing at these people and the Euros who seem to think it's in their interest to pay more for food, I am.

I googled for "GMO Hazards"

https://www.google.com/search?...

and out of the top 10 sites not one had actual problems that were caused by GMO foods

Lot of might and could be, but no actually. No "Killer corn ate my baby "

So How bout labeling foods that are produced from selective breeding genetically engineered as well ?

The word cut doesn't mean what you think it does.

Would you like to try for more name calling ? Maybe you can shout Bushhitler a few thousand times, or just go around yelling winger winger, or something equally persuasive.

I'll take what you are saying as your experience but you can't design a 555 timer without being able to do the exact same math for a resistor capacitor circuit. I also can't see how you could design much of anything without having the understanding that components are not actually "IDEAL Components" we draw on schematics, and what the effects of inherent resistance, inductance and capacitance are.

I certainly couldn't see anyone using differential forms, when the impedance/steady state math is incredibly easier to work with, but just the same if you try to use that without being aware of the transient response, it can go badly.

That's like saying being able to put a radio next to your computer and tell how busy it is and maybe what it is doing by listening to the signal on an open channel is part of the Windows UI.

" I wouldn't want to be dependent on an internal combustion engine I couldn't hear operating."

Well in this case you aren't hearing an engine operate, you are hearing are sound effects that may or may not reflect what the engine is doing.
