    E: in all seriousness though, are we finding a genetic marker for something, or attributing a genetic marker to something that is caused by socio-economic conditioning?
    Top bants, although I get the impression it has more of an impact on behaviour in immeadiate social situations rather than steamrolling Poland.

    There seems to be a decent amount of :science: behind the effect this particular gene has on brain chemistry. It would be interesting to see (for example) what % of violent offenders are carriers compared to the rest of the population.
    I have a friend who studies this actually. Like species memory stuff. She studies meerkats and why the babies instinctively hide from shadows, even if they've never been taught. How instinct gets imprinted. It clearly does, by some mechanism we don't understand, and, if it works over many examples in the animal kingdom, why can't it work with humans?
    It does but we are predators not prey. Our triggers are darkness and unfamiliarity, loud noises, movement, unexpected differences.
    Wrong. We were prey. And that still influences our behavior to this day. That's why we imagine/"recognize" faces everywhere. Our brain is trained to spot those predators hiding in the bushes of the savanna.

    One of the most prominent examples of our evolutionary programed faces recognition is the "Face on Mars" from a Viking 1 picture.
    We are both. We are prey that evolved to use the strength of the group to become super-predators.

    Our instincts are a mashup of prey fear, herd mentality, pack loyalty and predator aggression, all being ridden by a screaming monkey just about intelligent enough (on a good day) to plan for tomorrow.

    Good thing Trump is slashing it's budget then. If it's the US department of agriculture, the proposal cut is 21%. So, more healthy food soon, comrades? =D

    Wasn't it rather that the low resolution of the first image really did look a bit like a face because of the blurriness?

    A sharper image from a different craft was released years later btw; nobody saw a face in that one.
    And that's exactly it. We humans identified the first picture as a face, although there was just a red rock with three spots of black shadows. That's enough for us to recognize something as a "face". And that was a helpful trait back when we crawled the savannas, but is mostly irrelevant nowadays. But we still see "faces" everywhere.

    People who know these things (early hominid archaeologists) from the Sterkfontein caves suppose that at least one of the specimens fell in running away from a sabre tooth cat, based on some injuries on the thighbone. Not the kind of cave people would have lived in, but rather a deep vertical chasm they may have buried their dead in, which is another theory why the fossil record there is so rich.

    But the USDA does inspect & grade quite a lot of the food, instead of the FDA.

    My understanding of it is that there is a division of duty depending on what stage the food stuffs are

    The USDA is the one who inspects/grades & sets regulations for raw food stuffs; eg. grading grain & beef and setting regulations for what constitutes grade A beef, Prime Choice, or stuff like what size an egg is to be considered medium, large or jumbo etc. I also believe they are responsible for fishers & fishing quotas as well, but I may be wrong

    Whereas the FDA is responsible for consumer food products; EG setting what percentage of meat is necessary for the product to be called Meat sauce, Sauce with Meat, or Meat flavored sauce. As well as inspect & regulating canneries and such. Nutritional info, product safety and some other stuff as well.

    I guess the way to look at is that the USDA is for things that will eventually become food; and the FDA is for things being sold as food. So to Smuggo's point about sugar being in everything, that would be at levied as the FDA, not the USDA.

    Actually it was because Iirc the USDA is also responsible for food education. Either way, you have a big problem with your food industry lobby.

    Its very interesting to see statistics of how many bullets actually hit the enemy, for instance:

    US forces have fired so many bullets in Iraq and Afghanistan - an estimated 250,000 for every insurgent killed - that American ammunition-makers cannot keep up with demand. As a result the US is having to import supplies from Israel.

    Import from Israel is actually from the USA stockpile there. I remember from the last shooting war Isr/arab intifada the IDF needed extra ammo from the USA (when was that 2006?) and they got it literally from around the corner.

    I also remember the USA had a insanly high bullet count back in Vietnam.

    You know this but for the benefit of anyone reading who might not: There are reasons to fire bullets in war that aren't killing people. sometimes suppression is just as good if not better

    If you can keep a group of insurgents suppressed with small arms until someone can drop a bomb on them you still win even if nobody ever hits them
