Except of course that rainforest soils tend to actually be quite poor for growing crops, it's the constant layer of leaves etc. that give the nutrients. Once you slash and burn the trees, crops grow well for a couple of seasons and then start to die, necessitating more slashing and burning (I think, it was a long time since I did geography).
That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans. A European says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?" An American says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with him? - Sir Terry Pratchett

The great thing about Beaker is his ability to provoke while still being decorous, or at least within acceptable rules of conduct - Qwertyuiopasd

They were twenty minutes away, bringing extra boards and screaming for revenge.

Bayes Theorum:
............................P(X|A) * P(A)
P(A|X) = -----------------------------------
...............P(X|A) * P(A) + P(X|~A) * P(~A)

If I have learnt anything, it is that life forms no logical patterns. It is haphazard and full of beauties which I try to catch as they fly by, for who knows whether any of them will ever return?
