Any day? How about every day? What do you think those Chemtrails you see every day are?

Holy fuck, surely you're not serious?

Chemtrails are the main stay of government mind control; they weaken the frontal lobe's ability to reason, in-large part hindering abilities to draw links between consequence and action and future outcomes. This leaves us susceptible to more basal emotional responses such as fear and anger which the government under direction of the NWO uses to manipulate the populace. How else do you explain things like the Kardashians, the tides and why its so hard to tell sarcasm from what someone actually thinks on the internet? Grin

Well actually I was responding to Kxmode, but yeah, I hope he was being sarcastic.

Of course I was being sarcastic. Gees...

government mind control agents of course.

as for the mosquitoes, the only modification is a gene that proves fatal to their progeny. it's been tested for five years.

i think there's a little too much panic about GMOs in general. the current political climate - the exaggerated notion of "lets meet in the middle" - seems to make people think one man's ignorance is as valid as another man's knowledge. GMOs have already proven useful in food cultivation and they will prove increasingly necessary in our increasingly resource-strained world.

The sun would rise earlier, giving farmers an extra hour of daylight to work.

Umm, farmers don't work by the clock, they go to work when the sun comes up and quit when it goes down, no matter what time it is.


Yeah, that's not even close to being how it works. This is a crazy thing people believe that has its roots in history. Electricity has been invented, we are no longer beholden to the sun's whims. Join us in 2015 brother, behold the power of the wattage!

Hah! You win the internet today!


I'm all for ending the switching of clocks and sticking to one time. I like the extra hour of daylight during day light saving time, but I think we should keep standard time, where noon is the time when the sun is at its highest point and instead move "standard" business hours back one hour. One place I worked at I had worked from 7am to 3:30pm. I loved those hours because when I got off work there was plenty of daylight left to get shit done. At first I hated the shorter lunch break, but it didn't take long to get used to it and eventually grew to like it. I didn't need an hour to eat lunch and it meant getting off work half an hour earlier.

I've always hated hour lunches when I worked corporate. I'd much rather be getting out of work early. In hospitality you don't really have mandated breaks - regardless of what the law says - and just take a break when you can and go go go the rest of the time. You usually just take 5 minutes between the 6 and 8 seatings, scarf down whatever, take a leak, have a smoke, get back to it. I acutally prefer that because A) it makes the day fly by B) at least as far as restos are concerned it means you're making money and that's always good. Sitting around twiddling your thumbs in that industry is a bad thing.

The farms in my neck of the woods are in massive greenhouses that work 24/7. In the winter there are floodlights for the workers.

GM mosquitoes, sure nothing could go wrong with this. And I'm sure the average person will be left with the consequences.
