Pork. The other white FISH.

By Andrew Pollack on 03/27/2006 at 02:33 PM EDT

Speaking of transgenic food, some scientists are playing at intelligent design. They've spliced a gene for making oils of the kind fish make -- so called "Omega 3 fatty acids" -- into pigs. Two of the three pigs in the picture below have it. That could be a good thing for humans if it works out to be safe and easy to breed.Picture of pigglets

These Omega 3 fatty acids are what make fish so good for you. Its also the only supplement I take on a regular basis. I can say personally that it prevents me from having muscle cramps and even back spasms as long as I take it once or twice a week. Its also supposed to be good for inflammation and general mood. Its been documented to reduce aggression and anger in addition to aiding memory and focus. I can't speak to those things personally, but I can say without question that its an important part of my diet that I don't get. How cool would it be if your pork chops had this in it. Of course, who would want to eat fishy tasting pork chops?

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything. Not just killing people and breaking things, but ......

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
