... and millions of people have died and become gravely ill because of it.

I've had one friend die from lung complications and another deal with lifelong diabetes and a skin condition due to exposure to chemicals Monsanto and Dow were contracted to develop.

Who are these friends and what are these chemicals?

I agree with you for the most part in that we should not blindly trust a company that is so in bed with the government, but you've got to back up your claims with some evidence.

Very well seen. If the 20th century taught us anything, then it was this: any innocent-looking, peaceful society can almost without prior notice degenerate into a self-destructing monster, ruled by a tyrant. Which is a terrible and sad thing to say, but - alas - a true one.

Killer bees were going to kill us all.

Hello! I mean they have the word killer right there in the name! Of course they're going to kill us all. No one makes a name just for the sake of sensationalism.

The killer bees are just taking their sweet time to kill us. They'll wait until the right moment and *sting*, there you go. They should be called killer nefarious bees.

You *are* aware that the internet isn't just for facebook and youtube, right? In fact many people (heck, most people on Slashdot) use it as a *tool* to get work done. I just ssh'ed into the server at my lab so that I could check on a bioinformatics project that I have going on. For me, the internet is a tool that I use to be more productive, check Slashdot and to keep up on news without my TV

TV is pretty much only about entertainment and wasting time.

It's funny that you would use a British-ish phrase to let them know that they're not welcome here.
