    When scientists responsible for our continued survival as a species get as much recognition and public acclaim as a drugged- out, bleached kiddy diddler, then maybe your contrariety will have some merit, HoG.

    Until then, yeah, we're putting him up on a pedestal. One with which, if you continue to assail the legacy of this man, I will personally lift from the ground and bludgeon you.

    I don't wanna take away from the guy, cause he is truly great, and truly deserving of every accolade gets.

    But Phrost, you put him up here because you ride Penn&Teller's nuts. And P&T invented this whole "great genius not appreciated because the evil environmentalists are keeping him down" schtick as part of their unbelievably shitty episode on genetic engineering (which he didn't even do).

    So I'll leave it there. Bludgeon away.

    Edit: Actually Phrost, if you want to trollshido my stuff, that's fine. I just really wish you hadn't put the P&T vid there.

    The problem is the lives and accomplishments of scientists that do a lot for the world are celebrated almost exclusively in scientific circles with little herald outside, where as if you sell a bunch of cheap crap on TV you're going to get world recognition when you kick the bucket even though you really didn't do anything to aid mankind. Yes he was celebrated as much as any scientist, but scientists that accomplish amazing things are generally not celebrated enough by the rest of the world.

    I'll be the first to admit that I wouldn't have heard of him if it hadn't been for P&T. However, that's not remotely germane to offsetting the injustice of having this man's name fade into obscurity.

    To my knowledge he isn't even mentioned in any primary school text books.

    Of course scientists aren't celebrated. Haven't you guys read the theories of Intelligent Design? SCIENCE IS NOW DEBATABLE AS A WHOLE!

    On the topic of dead scientists, the UK government finally made an official apology for driving Alan Turing to suicide

    Nice writeup on a great and talented person I also only heard of from the news after his death.

    Now, how about the ratio of evil people within the 1 billion he saved? *evil provocative smile*

    I can't say that everything he's touched is gold, the arguments about becoming dependent on monoculture and the whole industrial agricultural system have merit. Still, can't fault a guy for feeding the world. Pretty badass.

    Good choice. He is under-appreciated and mostly unknown in the U.S. There have been more stories about Patrick Swayze, an actor, than about Dr. Borlaug, who saved hundreds of millions of people.

    Check out the article in the Wall Street Journal.
