    He could sell the hell out of them.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Any idea how many oranges it takes to make enough rubber for one tire? I'm thinking its gonna take a crap load.

    Also, after they genetically alter the oranges for best rubber producton, will the juice made from them be any good or will they be fit to eat?

    Whatever happened to those 200 mpg carburators?

    Yeah, whenever you burnout, it smells spring fresh.

    You think NASCAR will buy off on these?

    And some buy into every scheme that comes down the pike. Only idiots accept everything without question.

    BTW, if someone claimed they had a cure for cancer I would question that also as the chances there will ever be a cure for cancer is somewhere between slim and none and slim left town.

    What difference does it make? It was crap to begin with. It's taking useless garbage and turning it into something useful. The more useless garbage they use to make something useful the better.

    ...Unless you have a better use for orange peels?

    Also, after they genetically alter the oranges for best rubber producton, will the juice made from them be any good or will they be fit to eat?
    Genetically alter oranges for best rubber production? Are you delirious? If we even get to the point of genetically engineering orange peels you think we'll still be getting those peels from orange juice factories?

    People like to eat oranges and their peels.
    It will almost assuredly take more fuel (OIL) and resources to produce one tire then it will to produce 10 current.

    Its an advancement in its field..its not a solution to anything.

    You eat orange peels?



    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.
