This was how I abandoned my dreadful meal at KFC. Never going back there again.

A well-articulated burn, U.N.-RegulatedLectern! I think I'm definitely going to hitch my wagon to your rising star, if you know what I mean. No, it's okay. You write down what you thought I meant, and I'll write down what I thought I meant, and then we'll compare notes.

I think it is something about hitching a ride and falling off the wagon.

Who doesn't love a plethora of cunts? flirt

I don't need context. I love this sentence.

Quite.  Conquered Concurred.  Also the prev-page bit where I got called "beloved". shifty  Presumably not the novel though.
That's what I was SAYING, context be damned!  Andbut I knew this newer poast reminded me of something!, - it looks like that is a bit of a running Theme going:

A plethora of holes is always a good thing. wink

Who doesn't love a plethora of holes? flirt

(It ran to the local meme-theme park)



I'm pretty sure that one of my old cats was a lesbian too. shifty



And finally, this really did cluck crack me up:

Girl, I say, girl, for a mite there I thoughts you wuz a chicken... (chickm?)

Sorry I haven't been on PEEL lately.

Life is not being kind to me right now. It seems like for every good thing, 5 bad things follow it. I am so stressed out right now, I've been having dizzy spells. Certain feelings have been overtaking me, consuming my thoughts, and distracting me. We just started exponents in math, and I have a worksheet on them due Tuesday. I haven't done anything. I can't concentrate, my family is driving me up the wall, and love is a very confusing thing.

Grade 9 is weird.

What happens when you multiply two exponents together?

xy * xz = ???

What is the value of a variable to the exponent of zero?

x0 = ???

What happens when you subtract variables with exponents attached?

x3 - xlog(e) = ???

What happens when the derivative of an exponent is greater than or equal to the value of potential utility you might gain from starting a romantic relationship with an individual you haven't met for 30 or greater years?

xdx/dy * 7 >= love(utility)/boy * 30+n = ???

The internet has bred a whole generation of hyper-critical cynics for whom nothing is good enough and wonder no longer exists. Opening the floodgates for the instant airing of nit-picks and lofty analyses by people who have never made a film, written a story, or done anything even remotely creative of their own has served to destroy what was once such an innocent and delightful diversion.

Internet killed the video star.

I'm of two minds about labeling GMOs and here is why: the primary crops in this country (the US) corn and soybeans, are essentially all GMOs at this point. Cotton might be included in that group, too. I believe wheat is one of the few staple crops that isn't because there was quite an uproar when GMO wheat appeared in fields 10 years after a "closed trial" which yielded the assessment that GMO wheat wasn't worth it. Now, corn and wheat are both wind-pollinated. That makes it extremely difficult to contain the genetic material that is GMO and presumably this is how GMO wheat was found in decidedly non-GMO growing conditions as GMO wheat is not available for sale. The problem I see with GMO labeling is that those growers producing what they believe to be non-GMO crops lose their cachet without any recourse. If you're growing non-GMO corn and have set up a buyer ahead of time as many farmers do (really the contract system for crops is a separate problem in and of itself) but your crop tests as GMO due to cross-pollination with GMO crops that could be miles away, you might lose your contract and be unable to collect a premium price for your product. Unless GMO labeling laws go beyond just "what's in this food?" the risk of GMO labeling could outweigh the benefits for growers.

So where does that leave us? Do we not label because of the high risk of cross-contamination via wind pollination or insect pollinators that don't discriminate between blossoms they visit? Do we label knowing it will screw over growers who in good faith have followed best practices? I really think it has to be an all-or-nothing approach: either GMOs need to be allowed and not labeled or forbidden outright at the federal level. The challenge is that genetic material remains viable for an extremely long time. Pollen grains can fertilize plant eggs even after an incredible amount of time has passed. If GMO wheat can appear 10 years after a closed trial that resulted in NO GMO wheat being offered, how long would US agriculture have to shut down to rid ourselves of GMO drift?

Even worse, I feel, than the concern about GMO labeling is patented and trademarked plant material. I work in research and I know how important intellectual property is to those who have conducted the research and want to commercialize their product, either through production themselves or through licensing to manufacturers. I think we as a country should be much more immediately concerned with the way plant patents are enforced in the US. If you know and care about GMOs, then you know that GMOs are also patented for their particular makeup. Growers who use patented seeds (ever seen those DeKalb signs out in a field of soybeans? Those tell you what variety is grown & you can look up the strain info) are prohibited through their use contracts from saving seed from one year to the next. Growers who save seed for re-use or even sale outside of their contract face incredibly stiff financial penalties, like lose-the-farm stiff, if they are found to have gone outside of the agreement terms. It keeps the farmers in a perpetual cycle of having to pay higher prices for seed varieties that may or may not perform well based on environmental factors. It doesn't matter how much Bt protection your corn has got if it doesn't rain until too late to set ears. Now imagine how compounded the problem would be if you've got GMO labeling on top of the patent enforcement: grower A buys patented GMO seed and grower B uses non-patented, non-GMO seed. The first season is great: grower A sells all of his crop. Grower B, however, has a contaminated crop. How can he prove in a patent dispute that he didn't, in fact, take patented seed, cross it with his own intentionally, and sow it this past season? How can grower B prove that he didn't illegally obtain starter seed from Grower A? Grower B gets screwed out of his non-GMO labeling deal and sued for patent infringement.

Both issues would have to be addressed at once for a GMO-labeling measure to be taken seriously. There would have to be a determination of what threshold there is for potential GMO presence to trigger a patent dispute. If GMO material is present in, say, 10% of your harvested crop, that would be a level to show the intent to incorporate GMO was absent; even though it does mean you can't market it as non-GMO, at least you wouldn't get patent-f*cked for it.

One weakness I see in the GMO-labeling movement is that the strongest supporters are anti-GMO, not necessarily people who want more information about their food. I get the USDA's bimonthly research publication and the work being conducted on rice strains that have higher vitamin content to combat global malnutrition isn't something that deserves immediate condescension. If you have a product that can reduce the likelihood of blindness from Vitamin A deficiencies, does that make it an evil product? It's the golden rice research project in case you're curious. When the public thinks of GMOs, thoughts immediately go to something "unnatural," like inserting genes from one animal into another so that you've got a rooster giving milk. Selective breeding is in its own way genetic modification, and I'd hardly say that careful animal husbandry is a bad thing. Some of the discoveries in animal science, like particular genetic markers responsible for the higher beta carotene content in both the tissues and milk of Channel Islands cattle (Guernseys and Jerseys), can be put to work through selective breeding so that certain strains of crossbred cattle feature better nutritional content or even how to deactivate it for better carcass sales of unneeded male offspring. Jersey bulls and steers will earn a much lower price at market than a similar-sized Holstein just because buyers don't like the yellow tint to the fat. Even backyard gardeners practice genetic modification through outcrossing prevention, else we'd have no delightful "heirloom" seed strains that give us purple tomatoes or snap beans that can manage to make sizable beans without the pod turning into a stringy mess.

tl;dr: I don't think GMO labeling is the independent solution to our food quality concerns.

I had a dream last night I was on tour at the 20th Century Fox studios and I slipped away from the crowd and found an original copy of LATGS.  But it was called "Fry and the Genestalk". It was the same premise but it was Fry who got the tentacles.  And Leela sold the PE Ship and got tricked by the Magic Beans salesman who was voiced by Jon Hamm.

Then everyone berates Leela for messing up as the stalk grows.  Then a giant comes down and takes Fry away.  Leela vows to save him.  Bender wants to come, but Leela wants to do it alone.   She's about to go up the stalk and the Magic Beans salesman finds her and gives her back the PE Ship because he felt bad for swindling her.  She goes into the spaceship, flies to Momsanto, beats up the giant, Mom's sons, saves Fry (who was bound and gagged), calls the cops and has Mom arrested for her crimes.   Leela then blows up the castle.   It was like the ending to Police Story 2.

Matt and David saw what I did.  They told me it was that version of the episode they wanted to show, but they were stopped by the John Birch society who blackmailed them to make it about Leela getting tentacles and captured.   Because the John Birch society wanted Fry to be the hero.   So, I negotatied with Matt and David and they threw out the version that was shown, and replaced it with the one I found.  Then they made me an honorary writer for the comics.

I can no longer suspend my disbelief that Kurt is not a fake account, but maaan, this post is gold.

Lookit Jemima, I'm gonna give you some examples of things I'd rather see than you offering up your oh-ho-ho-ho so relevant opinion of I compare to a fictional character on a defunct television sitcom:

Eat a light bulb,
Cut out my own lung and then eat that as well,
Sit through an entire episode of The View,
Make out with my own grandfather,
Experience the wonderful miracle of menstruation,
Jam a balloon into my urethra and then inflate it.

Am I getting through there, doll?

People are nominated for much more than a single post. They are nominated for the quality of their posts, how enjoyable they have been, and simply how outstanding they'd been throughout the month. This is simply a thread that showcases people's best or funniest posts, that people can use to get an idea of a certain user.
Edit: I love how pissed off this simple post made tnuk. That's the kind of thing that reminds me that I'm on an online forum.

People are nominated for much more than a single post.

Sometimes people get POTM nominations on the strength of a single late-in-the-month post that's of truly outstanding quality. Occasionally, people win POTM by making a single epic-level post that is the best thing PEEL has seen in that particular month.

Perhaps the pair of you ought to spend a little more time learning how PEEL actually works before abusing your keyboards.

Oh, and this thread isn't actually meant to contain anything apart from nominating posts. Any further responses, or quibbling on other topics related to POTM should probably be done in this thread. Or else you risk the displeasure of  futurefreak, ~FazeShift~, Xanfor and the fearsome ShepherdofShark (who will delete your posts, and any whining about it that you might engage in as a result).

Consider this a little friendly advice, both of you (and anybody else who was tempted to choke this thread up with further unnecessary bollocks).

Actually we did have a Post of the Month for a short while.  I believe it was called Quote of the Month though.  Also, I think people don't generally have the attention span for that, and personally I'm not super happy with the magically status POTM has attained.  I probably argued for it to be moved onto its own board though, so fuck me, right?

Honestly I've always viewed this thread as really having nothing to do with POTM. To me it's just a place for people to share really funny posts with people on this board who may not have been reading the thread it was posted in, and to congratulate the poster who wrote it for being funny. I would be surprised if this thread really has that much effect on who nominates who for POTM.

Good point, Josh. Many is the time I've linked to a thread I don't usually read because of a quote placed here.

Whether it has any bearing on nominations I couldn't say. I know I have used this thread in the past to basically remind myself of who I intend to nominate, by doing something about. You know like when you write down the time of an appointment not because you are going to refer to the note later but because the mere action of writing it down will make you remember.

We won't know for sure until we get the test back.

Now excuse me while I delete the post above me (dang! you beat me to it, Xan).
