E coli are not from plants.
More likely: human feces.
Rhymes with “Mitt”.
With all of the North Africans fleeing mooselimb countries for Europe this was a done deal! Sadly not much different from here!
lol. you forgot tomatoes.
I think she needs help.

Of course, it’s not terrorism related. Don’t blame the muslims.

God, I hate it when FReepers go all retarded.
What if some farmer hired illegals all from the same area in N Africa for cheap, and they all had lived with the same N. African water source? Turkey is far more modernized than North Africa.
I hate it when fellow Freepers get all “panties in a wad” over microbiology that is far out of their intellectual zone and just want to “nay say”!
False pedantry alert!
Oh yeah, that could happen. LOL
Tune in for Her
Their Attempt !!

Never seen before, huh? Maybe it's really, really new and this is just a test drive? Even paranoids have enemies.....I've read Rainbow 6 too many times.
What is your point?
