Some more hints about what's going on in this page. For those without the science background some readers seem to have, scientists have been engineering things into plants for years. There's a project I linked awhile back called Golden Rice, where the gene(s) to produce Vitamin A (which is a yellow color) were inserted into rice. Vitamin A deficiency in children leads to blindness. So the thought was, in countries where Vit A deficiency + high rice diets were the norm (Bangladesh, etc), this rice should be distributed.
However, I think due to GMO concerns, the distribution hasn't happened yet. No matter, Peter has apparently done the same thing but with cauliflower. For some reason.
And deadlines. Yeah. Who likes them? Especially when they might be literal?
$10 more in the Chip-in at LEFT gets everyone a monday update, the last one available for October.
Here's how this fund works:
1)No matter what, updates will occur on Wednesdays and Fridays. This is guaranteed as the default update schedule for this comic. This fund is for EXTRA updates only.
2)Every $30 raised via the Chip In widget (at LEFT) means an update will go up on Monday. The meter is public and instantly updated, so you can all see how much has been raised. The Chip-in uses paypal, and if you don't have that, it should take just about any debit card, still mediated through paypal.
3)Proceeds from buying books or extras do NOT go toward extra updates.
If more than the goal is raised it goes toward making a public wallpaper for everyone featuring Colbey and/or Peter.
See you Wednesday!
