Well, that’s the agribusiness racket…

Thing is, though, if you agreed to those terms, you agreed to those terms…

You could buy old used tractors without embedded software… Or animal-drawn ploughs like Old Order Anabaptists use…

I don’t want to stand up for agribusiness, because it really does seem like a big racket…

On the other hand, it’s a free country; nobody is forced to be a farmer, can always do other work instead…

 

Pig-monkey hybrids are born alive in China

Yeah.

Scientists in China have created pig-monkey ‘chimeras’, looking like baby pigs, but with some primate cells, in a world first.

Two piglet chimeras were born alive, but died within days, New Scientist reports.

The research could lead to scientists being able to grow human organs inside animals for transplants, supporters say – known as xenogeneic organogenesis.

But the research is highly controversial, with scientists opting to use cells from crab-eating macaques (Macaca fascicularis) rather than humans for ethical reasons.

And how long will they be deterred from using human cells?

After all, that’s already been done, even if not allowed to come to term thus far…

And Lord knows, the Chi-Coms don’t have Christian morals…
