we should make a TV segment with FireCat then exploit it further by making a comedy hit with Morgan freeman as the god
I'd watch it for sure.

On-topic, Firecat is bad at debating, we all knew that already. However (s)he represents a point of view which shouldn't be disregarded just because Firecat is arguing for it.

Isn't there a decent amount of people against genetically modified food? I mean, genetically modified food has been a controversial issue for a long time now.

Personally, I don't worry about the possible side-effect. It's a very small risk that I take. I mean, we use a lot of man-made stuff these days. If I were to stop consuming man-made stuff and go all natural, I would have a very hard time. Things like medicine are also made by humans, and we're quick to take that when we're sick. Still, I don't feel like it's a stupid point of view.

There are enough things which can possibly kill you out there. I have stopped worrying about that and started doing whatever i feel like. Makes life much easier.
You think that packaging is toxic to you? Whatever dude, you are going to be killed by anything else regardless.
Tsunamies, nuclear power plants blowing up, terrorists, a car accident, the next crazy illness, a zombie apocalypse, choking on semen.

They probably dont look too appealing.

And to answer your question, i regularily buy something i dont even want to eat. Shoes, pants, chairs, computer parts, russian prostitutes, all kinds of stuff.

Its not about whether you want to eat it but more about whether you could potentially eat it without getting ill from it.

Haha It isn't an answer and be happy it isn't wrapped with some toxic thingy stuff. yet But still you can be forced to buy such things, if there isn't another option.

EDIBLE and FOOD are not the same thing. EDIBLE means you won't die if you eat it. FOOD you're supposed to eat. This is just saying you COULD eat it, not that you're supposed to. Therefore, his/her point of view is redundant; you don't have to eat it anymore than you have to eat the wrapper your candy bar came in (which is probably also edible, albeit not advisable and not really biodegradable). Either way I fail to see the issue; no one is forcing you to eat the wrapper. And if it's an issue he can go buy all the food wrapped in plastic because apparently that's much better. It's not like plastic ever has toxic chemicals in it.

Edit: NOT EDIBLE !

Anyway, I'm pretty sure many know the plastic are toxic in some way. hmm

"Plastic" isnt toxic on its own, just the majority of plastic in use. Because plastic is a vary broad term which describes a whole kind of product. There are biodegradeable and non-toxic plastics out there. But they are not in use too much.

FireCat takes the position, intentionally or otherwise, of the idiot who knows shit but still wants to join in conversations.

Don't worry camel, a bit of toxic plastic has never killed anyone yet.

And if you put some salt and ketchup on them it's actually quite nice.

    I have a GIF though

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
