There's a big difference between artificially-fixed nitrogen and "artificial nitrogen." Not sure what an artificial element would actually be. Artificially-sustained life might be a better term.

commented on How Will Local Cannabis Businesses Manage Their Banking?
@2 That's what I am wondering: aren't there state-level banks? Or are they all national now. Or am I just dumb for wondering that and it doesn't make any difference.
And if there is nearly as much money in this new industry as thought, won't some big banks be willing to devote the lawyer-hours to get in on that? It seems crazy that tobacco will send their doctors and lawyers to lobby anyone anywhere but big businesses are going to roll over and let little cash-only shops take the whole industry.

"...people who ride the bus in Seattle = half students/ half people going to/from work/ half insane smelly people..."
Three halves! That's how great the buses are - we can fit three halves on them!
