Did you know that that pales in comparison to the movie 2012?

And I'm sure some food does have DNA.

Depends what you classify as 'food'.

Did you know that it's surprising how many things that aren't food actually are edible? According to my favorite comic dog, Satchel, anyway.

I'm pretty sure that, generally, people aren't classed as food.

It depends on how finely you can grind wheat but you could probably make DNA-free bread. Sugars, starches and fats should be relatively easy. That's about it though, everything else I can think of is a direct result of plant, animal or fungal cells.

True, but really the DNA is not going to be doing anything anymore except sitting in the nucleus and tasting starchy.

And you cannot rearrange Hydrogen and Oxygen to create a moving baked chicken with its DNA mutated to make it protect the FLDSMDFR! :furious:

Aw well... it was a cute funny movie in any case.

Yeah, dead DNA isn't going anywhere. But it is inaccurate to say that, as a blanket statement, food doesn't have DNA.

So if a wizard magically creates food, does that means creating life isn't that far off?

Did you know that the soap holder in a shower is usually the right size to support a beer can?

Did you also know I had a very pleasant hot shower this morning? :smile:

Did you know I'm pretty sure beer in the shower would be fairly gross?

Warm water + Beer =/= deliciousness.

Did you know you're wrong? :moon:

Hot water makes you feel all warm and relaxed. Beer tastes nice and makes you relaxed. Plus the beer makes the water seem hotter and the water makes the beer seem colder :smile:

And with a can there's minimal contamination by shower water :scientist:

Beer baths are also quite nice but there is an unfortunate choice between sitting up and drinking or continuing to lie back and running the risk of pouring beer over your face :idiot:
