Before, we used natural means of crossing plants, and it worked. Now their motivations and methods are different. Do you get it?
I'm not sure where you got that information from. According to all the court rulings I've read, even if the courts allowed for the patenting of genetic material, said patent would only apply to new products a company produced, excluding naturally occurring DNA. They couldn't genetically modify say corn seed in some way and then take a patent out on all corn. So some evil multinational is not going to be able hold your food supply to ransom.

Come to Florida instead:

Lions, no tigers (except at the zoo), but bears -- oh, my!
Pythons (escaped pets that now lay 200 eggs per year) and 'gators and crocs -- they're sly!
Sharks in the ocean, jellyfish in the seas:
Melaleuca from Australia that will make you sneeze!
Diamondback rattlers with venom to end you --
Florida is a more interesting venue.
It's still the best place a doctor could send you:
No smog, and the Democrats all on the menu!

No thanks, The only thing Florida has that Oz does not is a Space Centre and Big Time Drug Dealers.

I watched a movie recently set in Canberra or Geelong (as they are both the same to my American eyes) and they showed a lot of drug dealers all over the town , and don't ask me what movie since it was an Australian export it was easily forgettable

Well, it's more complicated than I can explain, but among other things, they're modified to be resistant to bugs and so forth, and the yield is higher. That's why farmers in America use them, although they're effectively chained to one supplier

But in the EU, and possibly elsewhere, they are not allowed, because they don't know if the modifications are harmful. Something about long-term studies being needed, if I understood right. I do trust the EU on food quality & standards, but it's also convenient for protecting markets -- I didn't miss that

Here's the last real huge one,
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Yasi

They happen every year here, They are more often and powerful in the Atlantic but the ones down here can be just as bad,

Look up Cyclone Tracy that destroyed Darwin at Christmas 1974

And if palo can say there are no Gays in Russia, then I can say
There are no drug addicts in Geelong, unless they are in the suburbs of Whittington, Moolap, Corio, North Shore, Newcomb or Norlane and maybe Belmont.

Fortunately not where E and I live. What we get are five nice days a year and the rest of the time it's either too hot or too cold.

Cool

Kevin here. Well maybe the best way to live in Australia is to live in an un-inhabited area of the outback and then build a gigantic underground mansion which would have all the amenities and I would have to have flown in all my food and drink.


Hiram Big to the rescue!
