Journal Barbara, not Barbie's Journal: Wow - I have BAD karma ... 2

I guess some people have no sense of humour. How two people thought this was "flamebait" is beyond me ...

Well, I thought it was funny at the time, but as another poster pointed out, under the new rules someone could actually patent cooking, even with the existence of "prior art". And that's definitely NOT funny.

Oh, well, just goes to show just how dumb these patent wars really are.
