Ah, but if we were based on right-handed amino acids would we have built merry-go-rounds that turn the other way?

What does the bacterium currently think about life, and how does it anticipate a no-phosphorous diet will change its thinking?



 
Sources say they not very happy about government interference in their diet, but are essentially quite happy with a nice uncomplicated lifestyle. However, now that they have been noticed, they fear for their future, being non-conformists, and have actively started a research programme to investigate moving to a new planet. They acknowledge this presents a few hurdles, but anticipate a few million years of evolution will allow them to achieve their goal. As long as they don't have to listen to too many U2 tracks. Asked if they require any assistance with their plan, they replied that since they'd seen WIkileaks they'd rather get on with it themselves.

Why does our government keep doing stuff like this?

Countercurrents.org

On Wednesday, September 15, the United States Department of Energy conducted a subcritical nuclear explosive experiment under the NNSS (Nevada National Security Site) facility in Nevada formerly known as the Nevada Test Site. The subcritical test dubbed 'Bacchus' is the 24th such controversial 'almost' nuclear test whereby plutonium is bombarded by conventional explosives, short of blowing it up. The first subcritical test was conducted by the U.S. in 1997 and the most recent was 2006. The DOE is expected to give a 48 hour notice to the world community in advance of any full-scale subcritical test but it does not appear that this precedent was followed, and rather was completely disregarded. One Nevada activist group has indicated that they were on a list to get 48-hour notices but never received one. ...

The whole article...  http://www.countercurrents.org/kishner200910.htm

The US is all over everyone else for stuff like this and here they go, setting the example again. I just don't get it.

Orionid Meteor Shower  peaks on thursday, the 21st but will be hard to see due to near full moon

Try to view them around 5:00 am CST on Wednesday night between moon set and day break.

Look towards Orion's redish star, they appear to be coming from there as they pass thru the debris from Halley's comet tail

Well, I am sure it is nothing that your DoD haven't already done. Just this will be put into the public domain.
