But you can't eat corn. Oh wait.
The rice however, is questionable.
The real question is How will this affect corn subsidies in the U.S. Will the U.S. still be producing Ethanol when the cost outweighs the benefits?
The cost has outweighed the benefits from day one. The current ethanol subsidy is just north of 50 cents per gallon.
Do you think well ever go back to not using ethanol?
Good thing we're spending our tax dollars (and borrowing more from the Chinese) for those corn subsidies. Otherwise, who would grow the stuff?
Exactly. Even Brazilian sugarcane ethanol is marginal. Dem cornbelt votes is 'spensive.
But it's not socialism when it's requested by a congressman in a Red State.
I think by "Dem", he meant "them".
I know, but I beat farmer socialism horse all the time.
Sorry I butted in. My bad.
It's ok when they do it.
But you can make ethanol out of it and either drink it or mix it with your gasoline.
WAIT WAIT WAIT!!!!!
I ACTUALLY THINK MY MORNING CORNFLAKES MAY ACTUALLY CONTAIN CORN!!
WHAT'S NEXT???!!! THE PRICE OF THE LITTLE TOYS ALSO GOES UP??!!
The price of the little toys? That depends on the price of lead, my friend.
Funny, when you think about it. We barter corn to China in exchange for lead...toys.
Great, there goes my morning corn flake fix.
Tyler, you were spot ON!!! Long Jiffy Pot
you mean Jiffy "Pop"? ;-)
Maybe he smokes his corn instead of eating it. Of course this means a bottle of my favorite whiskey is about to rise in price...damn it!
You really should consider the malted barley variety...price has nothing to do with it.
ever wonder why it's still illegal?
- these are legal to grow.
screw your whiskey, whats gonna happen to the price of my corn kernel cat littler?
aint america great, we have cat litter others would eat. Hell, we could eat it.
"corn kernel cat littler"
Ummm, don't you mean Corn COB cat litter?
It is also very handy in the tumbler for cleaning up brass picked up at the local outdoor range - with a shot of Flit or Lyman polish, of course!
Ground corn cob has been used for years in many different applications, including animal feed. Don't know of many humans that have developed a taste for it though.
use to eat dog biscuits, growing up. i didn't tell any one though†
I know people who eat dog biscuits as adults. I know people who bake dog biscuits and taste test them.
as much fun to make as it is to eat, bitches
I'd really appreciate it if you could cook up a rally in the bean pit, too, if you get my drift...
there's great foresight to be found here at ZH.
Shhh. that's our secret.
Too bad because when the SHTF, only a select few will know what is going on.. like this "stuff"
The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted Feb. 2-7, 2011 among 1,385 adults, finds that nearly half (48%) say they have heard a lot about the anti-government protests in Egypt; about the same proportion (52%) reports hearing little or nothing.
They'd rather watch Dancing with the Stars than to bother with "stuff" like this..
The Keynesian won 2008 with 52% of the vote ... coincidence. I think not.
Correlation and causation merge yet again in wedded bliss.
That 52% is what we're going to be eating to survive, since big agra will fold when the oil stops being refined. That's the end of corn for a while.But we might not need them all for food, I remember reading that the Aztecs got by eating only about 11% of their population. We could possibly take the surplus and harness them to plows and cultivators, to grow non hybrid corn. Kick start the corn market all over again.
You are so sick... sick, sick, sick..................................
um. pass me a breast will ya.

So, are vegetarians considered free-range humans?
i some times eat my own skin. not much.
Duplicate... I have now exorcised the foul spirit from my laptop with the blessed refridgerator magnet.
Fly lice and colin dogs
Its all the evil speculators Tyler...how much longer will we have to wait for a House or Senate AG committee hearing...its like oil before the 08 crash. Maybe someone will ask Ben about this today
How high can they push the price of corn before people bail and start eating dirt instead?
Corn opens up limit up, and CSC takes a kick in the balls.
...as governments panic and begin to hoard worried about future uprisings.
am planting corn this year. Better buy another 50 lb bag of flour soon too.
Keep me informed how the planting of that flour went :)
After two years of growing corn, I vowed never to plant the weed in my garden again. It's a heavy feeder, pests love it, and it provides less nutrition per square foot than many other veggies. I'll have to try planting sack of flour this spring. Thanks for the idea.
Corn provides more bushels/acre than any other grain. Beats wheat about 3 to 2. But, it does require a lot of fertilizer.
