the vast majority of GMO are not tailored to resist specific natural pests, leading to a decrease use of pesticides, it's exactly the opposite... GMO are usually engineered to be highly resistant to a specific type of pesiticide (round up anyone) so that we can flood the crops to our heart content with it... no thanks. "Over 99% of GMO acreage is engineered by chemical companies to tolerate heavy herbicide (glyphosate) use and/or produce insecticide (Bt) in every cell of every plant over the entire growing season.

Comment Simplify and conquer: X*0 or X/0 equal X (Score 1) 1067 1067

I propose this solution, in the castle of math it just means switching a couple of different special cases, nothing more. But it certainly makes more sense. You are multiplying or dividing by a non quantity, thus you are not performing the operation and your X remains the same. Simple as pie. Another example of math confusion is including 2 in the prime number sequence. It's a mistake performed only to abide to preexisting dogmas. 2 is clearly an even number, the correct sequence is 1,2,3,5... etc. /end rant
