^ Wow. And here I thought I just made up the phrase on the spot.

Maybe I read that a while back and it rooted itself in my subconscious.

All it means is the busted made somebody higher up the food chain angry.

Read about Bill Strizich, Federal Marshall. High school classmate of my second husband.

That's what happens when you get too big for your britches.

You mean this??

No, not the Mayans; the best estimate of a date of domestication for bananas that I've heard is 30,000BCE, and they're from the Old World.  New Guinea and Southeast Asia are the homes of the two species of seeded bananas that contributed genes to the modern triploids, and many varieties have genes from both places.  (That's what the AAB or ABB mean in banana genetics)

trip·loid  (trploid)
adj.
Having three times the haploid number of chromosomes in the cell nucleus: triploid somatic cells.
n.
A triploid organism or cell.


Modern bananas cannot reproduce any way other than by division, and have required human intervention from the start.  Getting lucky and finding ONE naturally occurring triploid is far fetched enough, but 400 of them?  That's just too much for even me to believe.

Modified Quote from not terribly distant past . . .

Tea-Baggers are a serious symptom of social collapse in that many of them will cheerily wish you dead, to your face, with a smirk....as though they're doing you a favor. It's really something when you see it and is proof that many in their leadership suffer from Privileged Rage Syndrome in that their disillusionment with their lives should in some way become somebody else’s problem . . . (http://www.salon.com/2014/05/27/white_guy_killer_syndrome_elliot_rodgers_deadly_privileged_rage/).

Glyphosate is a plant hormone.  Roundup is so much more.....

I'm starting to suspect that all the triploid (and seedless) bananas that exist are the result of ancient genetic engineering.

All kinds of plants--natural or otherwise can be toxic. Glyphosate can be toxic too all by itself. The fact that you just roundly dismiss it so easily is more than intellectually lazy.

I suspect you haven't really looked into this much at all and you don't know what the hell you are talking about.

Yeah right.....like the Myans were into creating GMO crops. Genetic engineering IS NOT plant breeding. Creating GMOs is an INDUSTRIAL process. It is completely different from plant breeding. This you completely fail to grasp. And the outcomes are very unpredictable when people are literally shooting genes into the genome of an animal or plant. It is the height of hubris for them to think they actually know what the hell they are doing.  And, few longitudinal independent safety studies have been done on the outcomes of consuming such plants--how they may impact our health.

And, like I said--it is obvious you do not bother to even READ the links or the threads posted. Instead you spout out your beliefs on it as if that is gospel. And you provide no links to anything to support your POV.

Nice try but NO CIGAR.

Trouble with our beloved technology is that people are so "smart" they end up being idiots.

My on the ground experience with GMOs starts with all those papayas that grow all over lower Puna.  Before the scientists working for the University of Hawai'i  (not Monsatan) developed a ringspot resistant variety of papaya, farmers were spraying broad spectrum insecticides on everything in reach in an attempt to kill all the aphids.

As I stated back on August 9th on this thread, that WAVE 2 was not contained. IF wave 3 started(which started about 10 days ago) was large it means that all chances of containing this in West Africa has failed and that wave 3 would end with between 10 and 20 thousand infected and likely 10 thousand dead. 

Well here we are.. They are saying officially around 2500 dead as of a few days ago.. BUT, almost everyone in the hot zone is saying that only 25% or so are being verified and counted in the official tally.. This means we are RIGHT NOW at likely 10,000 dead already, and likely 20,000 infected.. RIGHT NOW....  And Wave 3 is still raging.. This is where I said that they will no longer be able to push this under the rug.

Over the next 10 days(end of wave 3) you will see Ebola on every single news story, every news paper, every talk show.. Everyone will be talking about Ebola...

So we are already baked in for at least 100k dead and 200k infected going into Wave 4 and the chances of up to 4 to 5 more countries getting clusters in the region are all but guaranteed.  Plus at least a few countries outside of Africa are all but guaranteed to have a cluster spark up.

I can feel this moving closer to me, but still feel very safe from it for now. I am using all spare time on the weekends and dedicating it to prepping. I spent all sunday putting away lots of tomatoes and pickles.. Upcoming weekend is going to be apple sauce and apple cider.. Last week was corn and some meat from the butcher.

This week will be more propane and gasoline.....  Slow but steady.. I know others will think I am nuts, others will think it makes sense and do nothing anyways. I hope everyone is taking this serious and finally see that this isn't Bird Flu or some other scare that got blown out of proportions.

This disease has expanded consistantly at the worst case scenario rate since it popped up on our radar back in March of this year.
