There's a good paper on how a lot more DNA is used than we think, in the next issue of Cell.
But stop using fossil fuels
Do you know what most fertilizer is made of? Its not shit. Its oil.
I worked at Tek Cominco, idiot.
I know way more about it than you do.
So, at most, this would help ameliorate 10 percent total of the increase in temps just this decade, which would still result in 25 to 50 percent crop failures?
Great. But stop using fossil fuels. We have cheaper technology already.
See, the problem is many of you don't get that what you think of as "noise" in the DNA is actually code. Shifted code. The internal mechanisms use cis regulation and miRNA, mRNA, cRNA to adapt to things going on in the environment.
It's not noise code, or broken code.
It's designed to do that.
If anyone had taken assembler and machine coding back in the old days of computing, they'd get it. You only have so much to code with, so you make it do multiple things.
Now excuse me while I start up the TARDIS
Technically it's an aerostat.
It carries gas.
Ever read Boneshaker?
But remember that I see a lot of B.Sc. grads with Computing Science degrees and zero experience in IT.
Get into an intern position in IT, and get a GPA of 3.8 or more.
Masters degrees cost a lot more.
Doctorates cost even more.
At least you can write and RTFM.
I should point out that citizens of Washington State have a State Constitution which specifically gives us stronger privacy rights than most Americans.
You can't even use GPS trackers on our cars without a specific court order, even though you can do this in most states.
Same goes for our cell phone data.
Same goes for our front yards.
Now turn off your cop cam you're recording my lawn illegally, copper!
The first rule is that nobody talks about Bird Fight Club
A map by territory shows places that are pretty empty but have a common language.
A map by population has problems handling multiple languages in use in one location.
A map by language density using vertical bars or color shading to imply pop density might work, if dithered properly.
From the most common hacked password (password) to the second most common password (death)
Or using their cat's name, found in all their FB pics, instead of their dog's name (same thing).
Yeah, that will do it.
