Cant eat cotton...well unless of course someone perfects the 'chocolate covered cotton' they were trying to peddle in Catch-22.

when the government's gettin' overthrown
you can't pick very much cotton
Self fullfilling prophacy?
Dollars are made from cotton, the more dollars that are printed the higher the price of cotton goes....
Or something like that?
You're not going to believe this...and I mean that !
Implies that Illuminati = NSA ...at least backwards!
Shut the fuck up.
AND I'm not going to read it! OR click it!
"I wish I was in the land of cotton,old times there are not forgotten,Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.In Dixie land where I was born in, early on a frosty mornin',Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land. "
I was thinking more Leadbelly
Good thing I just got a new set of sheets for the bed!
And I just stocked enough cotton swabs that will last me for a couple of years ;)
Some bought Ammo
Some bought Food
I BOUGHT COTTON SWABS!!!
WHO'S THE FOOL NOW BITCHEZ!!!
Cotton seed oil, one of those cheap fillers they degrade the food supply with.
cottonseed oil = toxic crap
If it's an ingredient in something, you don't want to eat that thing.
Remember it isn't the oil that is toxic. It's just that they spray a lot of chemicals on the cotton that (supposedly) get into the oil.
You should be able to do some GC to determine whether there really are any pesticides left.
There's no subject you're not an expert on.
It's hard for a layperson not to know anything about cotton in Lubbock. It's impossible for a chemist. My group has collaborated with the International Textile Center, and I have long standing friendships with a number of food chemists.
So yeah, I know a lot of stuff. Unlike you, with your head full of shit.
tmoseley - "Take it Easy"
Ok. If anyone needs me, I'll be "Takin' It Easy".
If it's easy, take it twice.
I am so old that I actually picked cotton during the 40's. Yep, one of those people out in the field pulling a sack. I liked the job because workers were paid by the pound. Rates when I was active were $2-$3 dollars/ hundred. My max was about 250 lbs. per day. People today will think that was pretty sad but the dimes quarters, halves and dollars were made out of or backed by 90% silver. (We have had inflation.)
Some boys started at around age 12 (There was a war on; child labor was useful.) I gave it up at about age 16. I could make more money in construction.
Cotton grown for oil extraction is one of the big four genetically modified crops grown around the world, next to soy, corn, and rapeseed (canola), mostly Monsanto products.
This from Wikipedia:
"The cottonseed has a similar structure to other oilseeds such as sunflower seed, having an oil bearing kernel surrounded by a hard outer hull; in processing, the oil is extracted from the kernel. Cottonseed oil is used for salad oil, mayonnaise, salad dressing, and similar products because of its flavor stability. The cottonseed oil undergoes intensive treatment after extraction to reduce the level of gossypol found in untreated cottonseed oil, the consumption of which may produce undesirable side-effects."
Time for a li'l racist field trip.
THAT was fucking hilarious.
That was awesome.
Modern cotton plants have been modified such that there is no longer any gossypol in the seeds.
Gossypol is sort of interesting. It is being investigated as a method to increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy on cancer patients.
You belong on a bar stool next to Norm Peterson.
Let's see, a chemist discussing the effect of spraying chemicals on a plant. Yep. Seems like a stretch to me.
wtf is gc? gas chromatography?
Cotton candy- Spun melted sugar.
Carpet beetles eat cotton......
(Bed Bugs & Beyond)
Time to hoard the Q-tips!
So once again, Hairy Wanker, the question is:
What is 17...... er ..... 23% ANNUALIZED???
Brilliant! Why didn't Weimar think of that.
HarryWanQer? How many of you are there?
YOU ARE A JACKWAGON!
Observer: How would you classify higher taxes?
Harry: Government wealth creation.
Does this mean I'm going to be paying more for my shitty socks and underwear from Walmart?
Nah, they will just make them smaller and thinner but charge you the same :) it works on food for the sheeple so why not clothes? Maybe they will charge by size - the only real hope Americans would fight obesity.
Unless you are prone to shartz, go commando.
And the next bubble is....
Why is the Bernank not hanging from a lamp post?
What does he have to do, tread on your grannies face in front of your eyes for the docile masses to take action?
Makes you seriously ponder WTF does a guy have to do in this country to get swingin from a rope! Demoralized States of Amerika, ah I hardly knew ye.
Another reason the crime continues unabated...
Makes you seriously ponder WTF does a guy have to do in this country to get swingin from a rope
A little more, today, for a cotton rope I guess.
When you pay people to say nice things about you and the bought and paid for media run with it, the masses believe the bullshit.
