Lies. Cross-breeding can result in poisonous plants [boingboing.net], and the random nature of it makes it harder to control than GMO.
That's a pretty strange statement, considering a lot of lab-conducted GMO research is way less "high tech" than most people think. Often, it just involves taking a sample and blasting it with some form of radiation, or some chemical bath, to cause it to mutate. That's about at random as it comes. And even intentional attempts to splice specific genes involves a lot of trial and error. Once you have something you think is good, though, you just breed like with like.

I was a fuck-up in high school. I took geometry three times. Later in life I picked it back up again, went through Algebra 2, trigonometry, and on to calculus, but I dropped out there because it all had become too time-consuming.
Ironically, I've never had any cause to use anything past geometry. Turns out geometry is pretty damn useful in real life
