Italian Chef Trying to Pronounce Worcestershire Sauce

billpayer says...

@A10anis is nearly right. Correct pronunciation is "Wus - ta - shir" sauce

I once walked past the factory where they make it.
The entire neighborhood stank of Twiglets.
One breath was like a lung full of the stuff.

Hello Zawash,
How do you get your video to be open full when it's a featured video ?
I also promoted a video but it's just a thumbnail on main page, your video is expanded...
Thanks !

Neil deGrasse Tyson on genetically modified food

billpayer says...

Hello Chaos Engine.
It's not 'either or...'
It's not inevitable either.
Nor is it too useful or too profitable. (quite the opposite. Non GMO supermarkets are raking it in on both sides of the Atlantic)
It's an agenda than has been allowed to flourish, or massively sponsored by corporate interest (the huge campaign against GMO labels for example).

It can also be stopped.

ChaosEngine said:

Make up your fucking mind. Do you want it regulated or not?

Because I can tell you what's not going to happen and that's getting it banned. It's too useful and too profitable. I think you're the one living in lala-land

Wow... So many great points here.
And lots missed by others.

@ChaosEngine I like you too. But the next posts after yours explains my point better. @Eukelek got the point correctly.
(The fact you don't eat it, or your local farm doesn't grow GM is telling and hypocritical)

There is a massive difference between selection using natural processes and GENETIC ENGINEERING.
One will only produce offspring that are genetically compatible.
The other is a crap shoot producing mixes of different taxonomy.
For fucks sake when could A FARMER BREED A MOUSE WITH A JELLYFISH, or mix SPIDER GENES WITH GOATS.
That shit is fucked up and only the tip of the iceberg.

You really want MONSANTO creating NEW SPECIES OF PLANT THAT ARE STRONGER THAN THEIR NATURAL COUNTERPARTS AND LACED WITH TOXINS AND PESTICIDES ????
It was Monsanto that developed AGENT ORANGE, and PCB's which THEY ALSO DENIED WAS HARMFUL EVEN THOUGH IT IS MASSIVELY CANCER CAUSING. They buried every study showing it was carcinogenic.


@nock . Yes I'm sure the medical profession has even crazier biology going on. But I would only use that shit IF I WAS GOING TO DIE.
NOBODY NEEDS GMO.
Now the medi-corps are using super viruses as vectors for 'custom' dna treatments.
Considering that the U.S. CDC was just admonished for improper practices contains viruses. How long before there is an incident that is completely synthetic (man-made) and completely irreversible.

@RedSky Sure Africa should grow whatever it needs to survive. But don't expect an export market for gmo.

I love Tyson. But totally disagree with him on this...
Yes farm animals are 'engineered' but they are engineered via NATURE and NATURAL SELECTION over THOUSANDS OF YEARS.

Putting Jellyfish glow dna into mice is fucked up and would NEVER happen in NATURE.
INSERTING PESTICIDE PRODUCING GENES INTO FOOD IS SOO FUCKED UP FOR ALL OF NATURE.

Bee's anyone ?

Human's, Animals, Plants, we all share essentially the same cells.
So something that is designed to kill insects, if ingested by us, may fuck us up.

Also, WHY DO IT ? GM yields are not that astronomic.

Most of the food we grown is WASTED. Let's fix that first.

Dude I seriously recommend you redact that last comment.
Do not lower yourself to that level.
It also does you NO GOOD AT ALL in any kind of an argument and does not help any point you are trying to make.

TED: Jamie Oliver's TED Prize talk

billpayer says...

Bid Mac's SHOULD cost $18. Then poor people would not eat them. We cannot afford the cost of meat = deforestation + Global warming. School kids woudl be much better of with less calories and heathier options, plus think of all the jobs in catering for the economy both in school/work and high street. Reverse the strife that the corporations have caused. Local markets and laocal resteraunts.

This is you
