Genetically Modified Berry compared to Organic Berry:

Note that the modified specimen is bloated to about 3 times the mass of the common berry. Advanced rot has set in prior to maturity and tests revealed 78% more lactic acid in the modified organism.

Upon contact with the modified berry, the picker’s hands exhibited a rash which is clearly visible on the fingers and should not be mistaken for juice stains acquired during picking. While the common berry, of course, has no ill effects on the skin, the modified organism had an effect similar to poison oak and swelling set in shortly after the photo was taken.  The discoloration and pain lasted approximately 12 hours with treatment including Neosporin and Syrup of Ipecac.

At 16 hours the specimen went missing and could not be monitored for decay rates.  While the common berry remained, the modified berry was spotted the next Tuesday at the corner of Wallace and 12th St. Having grown another meter and a half, the genetically modified berry murdered two prostitutes and became the target of a cross country manhunt. It was last seen on February 20th in Boulder, CO where it has joined with several bananas from the Monsanto corporation and stolen at least two shotguns from the Boulder Police Department.

A manifesto was released online suggesting that the berries intend to strike at our nurseries, killing our young and replacing them with further modified organisms which we will raise as our own. They also intend to “free their enslaved brothers” by treating common fruits and possibly vegetables with mutagens.

The head of the FDA could not be reached for comment as he has gone missing. Only a glass of unidentified red fluid was found in his office, labeled “Extra Pulp”.

Sure, ethically, locally sourced, artisan foods are good for you, no questions, but not everyone has the luxury of time and money to lovingly create mango, daikon, and avocado spring rolls with ume lime dip for their kids while also struggling to make ends meet and balance multiple busy jobs.

Sometimes good enough is good enough.

(Yes, I know this is from The Onion, but the message is entirely valid.)

Very true, but fast food may cost more than cheap foods you can prepare when you are buying for more than 2 people. Also you get left overs usually. Fast food meal for 4 is going to be $20. You can make a lot of food for that price, or semi prepared. Roasted chicken plus bread and vege will be well under $20.

The time solution!

Basic Information
Other names
Web Developer, General Technologist, Silly Biscuit

I'm passionate about technology and how it wields the unending potential to enrich our lives. I envision a future in which advances in mobile and ambient tech become a seamless, transparent part of our daily lives.

Professionally, I'm an ASP.NET and occasional PHP developer with a focus on backend development. I love to tinker, I code for fun and stress-relief, and am of the philosophy that if a tool does not exist to get a job done, then we make our own tools.

Personally, I'm a strong advocate of critical thought, social justice and equality. I consider myself fortunate to live in one of the most forward-thinking and free countries in the world, eh? I enjoy abstract, surrealist, and sarcastic humour, and try to see the silliness and absurdity in most everything.
