Beautiful, subtle game that still hasn't been "solved" by high-speed computers. It suffers a terrible rep because its main enthusiasts are Asperger's types like myself, but like Deadheads (who I abhor) used to say, "If you have to ask, you're never gonna get it". Say it clear, say it loud, I'm a chess geek and I'm proud!
Genetically modified crops, done so for the purpose of increasing overall yield, resistance to pests, and other reasons. Been around for awhile, yet nobody has grown an extra head or suffered cancers associated with it.
Frankenfood is a scare term used by European agricultural interests trying to take trade share from US growers; and also used by ignorant folks using it as a lame excuse for yet more yankbashing.
Q: What's the difference between a drunk and an alcoholic?
A: Alcoholics have to go to those STUPID meetings!
Alcoholism is not a disease, it is a condition. You don't 'catch' alcoholism; it is voluntarily self-inflicted though admittedly hard to stop. Calling it a disease implies a passivity to the situation that absolves one of personal responsibility, when it is up to the drunk him/herself to take care of the matter.
Also, there is no such thing as a 'recovering alcoholic'. Either you're drinking or you're not.
