~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Side effects of Genetically Altered Food

1) Your hot dog just fetched its own ketchup and relish.

2) You spot the tell-tale signs of a primitive central nervous system in your Jell-O.

3) Chocchini: looks like zucchini, tastes like a Ding Dong.

4) The black-eyed peas on your fork just winked at you.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

"How many people would populate this country [USA] if we were as densely populated as Hongkong?" --B Cook, Burke VA

If the US were as densely populated as Hongkong, which has about 7 million people packed into 422 square miles, we would have about 63 billion Americans covering every square inch of our 3,787,319 square miles, including the bottom of the Grand Canon and our share of the Great Lakes. (Our population is currently about 275 million.)
