    IANAL, but if he does not answer to all of our rants and raves, that't a clear violation of free speech!!!! And that's the exact point where someone(not I) could start a ... CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. Maybe Lodewijk could chime in?

    The researchers are now turning to improve tear strength and abrasion resistance by bio-based approaches.

    In the future money and work boots will grow literally on trees. And in the very far future radio archeologists will scratch their heads. (because they reconstructed the mighty mite and it escaped their labs)

    Maybe we should send the genetic sequences of STDs, etc. to attract the attention of the space aliens who never show up in our 4-dimensional window of perception.

    That is one very good question.
    Maybe people who are at least by magnitudes smarter than I am could solve this apparent contradiction.

    I don't post everything I read. And it's a good thing.

    The first place I saw the notice was on Phil's YT video. I know folks here hate Phil.
