Use an axe to split the base of the stump like a pizza, then just work on removing the slices. It helps if the stumps are dried out, otherwise they won't split.

I dug 4 out of my backyard in 10th grade.

ps: google is your friend

what bothers me about bio fuel and corn ethanol is that tons of farmers switched to corn production because it's a money maker, then paired with drought and

there is currently a rice shortage, for the first time rice is being rationed at wholesalers to 4 bags per customer.


rice is the main staple for people from cultures all over the world. It's an essential carbohydrate that when paired with beans is an excellent source of protein.

Some of you are misinterpreting what is going on.

They have blank cells, they inject a synthesized DNA strand, created from scratch, and then boot up an organism with no prior DNA or sex sequence. Every aspect of this is man-made from chemicals.

They aren't "finding" these bacteria, they're creating them from chemicals, programming the DNA precisely how they want and bringing their creatures to life.

Literally creating life.

Some really incredible pieces of info I heard that he passed so nonchalantly are :

1) life does exist in outer space, it actively searches for an aqueous solution and NASA has shown this to be true.
2) the DNA strands have the capability to repair themselves after being obliterated given 12-24 hours time
3) they're able to synthesize strands 500 characters long

The face of modern science and biology has changed.
