Looks as if he should have your screen name. That's the first thing I noticed also. He'd better watch out for lightning! Perhaps I should too...I'm a wicked girl to notice such things.

Or the black dude on the far right side of the "M"

Maybe the "M" doesn't stand for 'modified'...

These are Raelians -- nutjobs of the first order.

Based on this picture, however, they seem to be much better looking than your standard-issue nude lesbian protestors.

The very same. They're quite pro-technology and genetic-modification, hence this protest.

The GM brass in Detroit should be printing this photo out on posters.

Something to boost morale on the assembly line.

Protestors strip it in FAVOR of genetically modified food.
Now, what I don't get, people take it off in protest of things, yet no-one will sit still as a model for a drawing?
What is this?!

Sis, check this out and keep in mind two things: 1)I draw
And 2) I cannot find a model to draw from for certain ideas for sketches.

Then tell me what is wrong here.

Their "leaders" are, I think, Bo and Fa, the Christ and God the Father reincarnated in human bodies. I'm a serious Christian pastor, and even I was crackin' up reading their web site - so OUT THERE it's funny. (I do take blasphemy seriously, but come on folks, Bo and Fa? Oh ya, and BTW, Fa died before their whole plan was in place, and I don't remember how they explained that one: their "God the Father" died.)

I've heard that in CO there are fields of genetically engineered corn - old news - except that they're altered by using the AIDS virus?! (this was in newspapers - people were UPSET to say the least) Funny, this was reported AFTER they'd planted and grown the crops.

Here's one modified corn article:
Biotech corn gets state's approval , French company plans crop in Phillips County

Another one: 6-Regulation: Boulder, USA, rejected GE crop ban on county land
(excerpt from this collection of articles):
""We can't slam the door on biotechnology," said Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture Don Ament. Biotech promises foods that will fight blindness in malnourished children, improvements in the fight against diabetes, and more effective treatments and vaccines for diseases such as AIDS, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, Ament said. He said the county should trust the efforts of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration to ensure the safety of crops produced through biotechnology."

OKay, HTB suggested I start my own cult for this sort of thing associated with the article.
What should I call my new cult, and where should we be headquartered?
And who will be our spokesperson and 'image'?

Well, we could be headquartered in Darks domain
or Chylde's manor or something.
Are we the sock mongers?
The Mad Mongrels?
Oohhh, my personal fave, Wylde Chylde's groupies.
It could be a subdivision of The Dark Siblings inc.
I figure, we could end up with our own separate
cult followings.

Hmmm.... we (Darks & I) are kinda more
gothic than the Goths.
I refuse to be the spokesperson without
my rubber suit! Find someone else.

Can you include coffee breaks as part of our holy rites?

Companies would have to allow us to withdraw from the unholy masses three times a day so we could meditate on whatever we decide should be holy and sip the juice of the sacred bean.

Sure.
Coffee is a sacred right.
(Just, apparently, not my coffee. Hideously strong and vicious stuff.)

But admittedly, this group is mostly better looking than the anti-war groups...
