    Link: DNA Testing Of Hot Dogs, Caviar & Other Stuff - Two students wanted to know: Is this stuff really what it`s supposed to be? The tested 66 foods and found the truth.

    Huzzah. Now I know how to mass produce beer. None the wiser about DNA food testing, though.

    I`m assuming this is the wrong video since the video attached is about brewing beer...?

    I got a video about brewing beer. While interesting, not what I was expecting, and the teenage-girl-voiceover was grating on my nerves.

    Wrong video - but interesting anyway.
    But, being from the UK as I am, I didn`t get the humour about the "bung hole" reference. Can you let me in on the joke?

    Mitochondrial DNA isn`t a single gene. In fact, the video seems to imply that mitochondria are genes, which is *completely* wrong.

    Kool!
    Catching the caviar company substituting paddlefish is a big one!
    It`s nice to know that SOMEONE`s looking into this sort of thing.

    "...One was `caviar` which returned `paddle fish...`"

    Later, somewhere in Russia...

    Reminds me of Egon in Ghostbusters 2 and his study of roosterroach breeding patterns in the nYC subways. Also, Science is now cool again!

    Yeah, `rosseterroach` - that`s what I meant to say, I-A-B. While I`m at it, I have an easier time finding past I-A-B content by GOOGLING it directly by name, than using the sorry excuse for a search engine that you (or buddy) provide(d), which apparently only selects portions of the content to be indexed, and therefore limits accessibility arbitrarily. By the way, there`s a fakeout site called Boredville.com that`s been ripping off your content for years. Thanks.
