    Yes, green meat is healthy.

    An Egg Plant is where synthetic eggs are made.

    (If you have ever lived on; iron rations/survival packs, you will know what I mean)

    – But Mommy, this salad is green!
    – Don’t worry, honey, it’s because of plutonium.

  9. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:51 am |

    The pollution eggplants are purple because they’re made of Milka cows!

    Grown in only the finest filth.

    It’s animal, vegetable and mineral!

    @72rd 0411.

    Plutonium is used in anti-tank shells.

    1. It is cheap. (spent fuel rods from reactors)

    2. It is 1.7 times heavier than lead. (more effective)

    Mode de emploi: Shell hits tank; Hardened steel bolt in shell punches hole in tank hull; Closely followed by mass of molten plutonium; Plutonium rockets around inside the tank, turning occupants to slurry.

    The boss at this place has some guts putting that stuff out.

  17. Geo | 9:12 am |

    I’m not surprised, considering that China is an incredibly polluted region of Earth.

  18. Geo | 9:19 am |

    Well, at least Pollution Eggplant is relatively safe to eat. Although the leachate and bits of trash pose a problem, it’s better than the radioactive Green Eggplant and Onions, as Seventy2rd so clearly put out.

  19. UCity | 9:44 am |

    Of course the eggplant pollutes, just like a coal-fired or oil-fired plant.

  20. Seventy2rd o clock | 12:03 pm |

    @ Marum: Also, Plutonium-244’s half-life is 80.8 million years, so let’s Radioactive In Peace!

  21. Big Fat Cat | 12:06 pm |

    At least they didn’t spell Eggplant as Elephant!

    @72rd 0003. After the first Gulf War, kids in Iraq were playing with those steel bolts. They were lying by the side of the roads everywhere.

    Thanks to good ol boy George Jr., and his weapons of mass distraction.

    I do wonder, how many of those poor kids are still extant

  27. Marum | 7:05 am |

    IMHO. The dead ones were probably the lucky ones.
    There are worse things than dieing.
    Living with severe radiation poisoning, would be one of ’em.

  28. Marum | 7:35 am |

    We thank with brief thanksgiving
    whatever gods may be:
    that no man lives forever,
    That dead men rise up never
    that even the weariest river
    winds somewhere safe to sea. ( Rememberence – Swinburn)

    As a citizen of a nation which backed that madman. Sorry kids.
    If my tears could make your graves softer – then I cry for thee.

    Vale ninos.

  29. Marum | 8:02 am |

    @72rd I think you will find that it is U239 – Half-life 24,100 years. There were also heaps of it burning by the sies of roads, which forms U235 or 234. Which, when breathed in, is a known carcinogen.
    238 – 239 are used because they are cheaper. The shorter haf-life, helps not at all.

  30. Marum | 8:07 am |

    BTW. If you wish to read of another (cluster of f–ks). Read the story of the Bikini Atoll nuclear tests. For the second time in history, the whiteys wiped out a shipload (p = t) of Polynesian people.

  31. Myself | 2:26 pm |

    Political polarization reaches new extremes: even at the supermarket these days, you have to choose between green and pollution.

  32. Long Tom | 4:37 pm |

    I*f you’re referring to depleted uranium shells as tank ammunition, guess what? They’re no more harmful than any other ammunition, and they are not causing cancer. (I asked about this on a military forum, where they also talked about Agent Orange, which is harmful.)

  33. Garst | 6:58 pm |

    Could I get a lower price? I don’t think I could justify paying that much.

  34. Marum | 5:25 am |

    @Long Tom. I imagine after one had been reduced to molecules by a mass of molten (depleted fuel rods), one’s chance of developing cancer, would be less than nil.

  35. Marum | 5:29 am |

    The miltary denies that any thing is harmful, until sufficient people die, to make the proof self evident.

    But I guess Iraqui kids don’t matter….ALL THOSE CAMEL JOCKEYS ARENT QUITE HIUMAN ANYHOW. Are they?

  36. Marum | 6:05 am |

    Bullets, shells and missiles tipped with radioactive depleted uranium made every weapon in Iraq’s arsenal obsolete. The higher weight of DU shells allows American tanks to shoot twice as far, giving them a range of two miles.
    During the [1991] Desert Storm terror campaign at least 944,000 rounds of DU ammo were fired from American A-10 Warthogs all over Iraq and Kuwait. The A-10 is an aircraft built around a 30mm, 7-barrel gattling gun that can spew 3900 rounds per minute.

    When a depleted uranium tipped shell strikes a tank or armored personnel carrier it easily penetrates the armor and burns the crew alive. The impact also vaporizes the depleted uranium, creating an aerosol of radioactive heavy-metal particles which can spread as far as 190 miles on the wind.

    When inhaled or ingested, the depleted uranium particles cause chemical and radioactive damage to the bronchial tree, kidneys, liver and bones. Cancer often results, and the effects can even include genetic damage.

    The Dutch Laka Foundation estimates that the United States terror campaign left behind 300-800 tons of radioactive waste from this [depleted uranium] ammunition all over Kuwait and Iraq — poisoning the air, the land, the water and the people everywhere.

    Afterwards, wherever the depleted uranium firing had been concentrated, there were cancer epidemics among Iraqi civilians living nearby. In the ten years since then, sanctions, polluted water and depleted uranium together have killed somewhere between 1,000,000 and 2,000,000 Iraqi civilian people. At least 600,000 of the dead are children. Cancer rates have quadrupled in areas of southern Iraq bombed by the American and British state terrorists.

  37. Long Tom | 1:05 pm |

    Marum: Yes, the government can lie. So can, and do, anti-American propagandists.

    There are people who say that there was a vast CIA conspiracy to kill President Kennedy too, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. There’s also the Bermuda Triangle, Bigfoot, Elvis Presley being alive, etc.

    Unless I see real scientific evidence about cancer being caused by depleted uranium shell, I’ll take what you said as pinko propaganda. You’ll have to come up with something more convincing.

  38. Long Tom | 1:53 pm |

    And BTW, I get MY information from veterans who were actually in Vietnam and the Gulf. These people are brutally honest about the government and the military, so if they say that depleted uranium shells don’t cause cancer, I’ll believe them before anybody else.

  39. Marum | 4:58 am |

    Pinko me? Mein gott! I have had my own busines, and generations of my family have been self-employed. Keynesian maybe. I consider myself insulted by an expert. 😀

  40. Marum | 5:15 am |

    Info from ex military personnel! They are so limited in their thinking,so non-versatile, theey think that because of their military training, tthey are experts in eveything. I have one of the nongs living in my house at present. (used to be a friend) Anything you tell him that is outside his tiny imagination, is wrong or doesn’t exist, and the default state is that he is correct.

    eg. I mentioned removable shotgun chokes. He screamed and ranted that they did not exist, couldn’t work, and no one used them. He especially belives he knows everything about firearms. However, militaria, is but one small branch of the shooting disciplines. (I am a licenced shooter and hunter) I would not trust any advice from ex military people.

  41. Marum | 5:42 am |

    Another one from him.

    resolve the equation:

    P=EI
    E=IR
    therefore P =IsqR.

    He sreamed and ranted that theat was incorrect – for one cannot resolve an equation that way.
    Hmm. I worked in electronics 30 years. It also worked for me, and my Physics lecturer.

  42. Marum | 6:03 am |

    Basic Ohms law.

    E = voltage (PD)(volts)

    I = Current (amps)

    R = resistance (ohms)

    P = power (watts)

  43. Long Tom | 3:40 pm |

    @Marum: I’ve got my own idiot Vietnam War veteran, namely a man who used to work at my place. I tried to explain how an X-ray machine worked to him, but he was having trouble following what I said. Finally a coworker came up to me and told me he was an idiot. Eventually I got the engineer to help me.

    But he was smart enough to know (when it came up) that selling stock short is a great way to lose money. Maybe he saw the movie “Kind Hearts And Coronets”.

  44. Long Tom | 3:42 pm |

    But you might want to check out this science fiction website, which you have to be a member to view:

    bar.baen.com

    If you do, go to the “Kratskeller” section which features author Tom Kratman. You might read his books as well. I read “Caliphate”.

  45. Long Tom | 1:08 pm |

    @Marum: I forgot to mention Jesse Ventura, governor of Miinesota.

  46. Marum | 2:09 pm |

    @Long Tom. He would have no problems – wrestling – with the gubernatorial duties and responsibilities.

    THERE! iI have had my lexicogaphical fix for the next year or so.

  47. Michael Evans | 3:44 pm |

    I have good news and bad news. Good news is I’ve invented creative new way to clean up Yangtze River. Bad news is guess what’s for dinner?!

  48. Peter | 3:45 pm |

    At less than half price of the green version, at least they’re honest.
