The weed it produces will probably be good but no better than many common polyhybrids, the real value in a variety like this is its genetic stability--the seed it produces. Growing only one is essentially a waste of what's there.

Yeah, that isn't the contradiction it may seem.

No the SensiStar I grew was fine weed. Good solid commercial line, but no more potent or better than a random farmer's cultivar smuggled out as seed from Afghanistan. And the farmer's cultivar bred true across multiple generations whereas I doubt the SS would do likewise. Which for me is a huge advantage--let a male or two live in one patch and you have perfectly good free seed for the next several years that you can count on to perform. F1s and polyhybrids are really inferior genetics from the buyer's perspective, even if the potency is there for now.

Isn't this amazing.. beyond belief who can write these stories?

The U.S sends troops to a war to kill people who attacked us and we get some troops coming back and some more stock to consider.

no polyticks aloud.

we speaking only the good that comes from chaos and destruction not the bad things.

pulls out tinker toy kit. makes a deck for a tank to sit on. OOPs not enought tinker toys for a ramp to get the tank on and off the deck.
I mean how stupid is that?

"Hand me that cannonball will you please? "
"ok thanks. up.. this is going to take a long time. uh. we are going to need a lot more people doing it this way."

forms assembly line
Just because I can't spell misanthrope doesn't mean I'm completely stupid.
