Corn Rules

I just watched Michael Pollan's TED talk on the relationship between humans and the plant world.  I've always been fascinated by the idea that perhaps we don't have the whole biological world totally under our control as we like to believe.  Perhaps everything is getting exactly what it wants out of our domineering programmes of domestication and agriculture.  Better yet, perhaps some of these 'subjugated' organisms are really driving us to build, farm and plant...  Worth a 17 minute work break.
