GUEST, Ebbie BS: not so fast... (16) RE: BS: not so fast... 09 May 07


Well, MMario, that's an easy one- just import some flavoring. The licorice plant comes to mind. :)

No, it wasn't kudzu that I was reading about. (By the way, the word I wanted was 'scrubby', not 'shrubby'.) The US has reservations about this plant but part(s) of the world see great hope in it.

Incidentally, if corn became the biodiesel of the future, why should its price go UP? Surely farmers would then have a cash crop that would bring them prosperity for the first time in decades.

Old joke:

Old farmer gives up and quits farming. Decides to go into business. He orders a boxcar load of hammers. Each hammer cost him $2.00 and he sells each one for $1.00 so his sales are brisk.

Man takes him to task, saying, Hey, man, you can't sell those hammers for $1.00- they cost you $2.00!

Farmer shrugs. Beats farming, he said.
