Norman Borlaug

Norman Borlaug was a scientist.
His work on selective breeding and crossbreeding has so far saved
more than one billion people from starvation.
Most were a different race from him.
He didn' t want praise, or money. He didn' t want to be worshipped. His
only motives were human compassion and scientific progress.
And you' probably never heard of him.

Kim Kardashian was a slut.
Her works on dicks were well known
She even did some that were a different race than her
She wanted praise, money and to be wroshipped.
She was a bitch.
And you have probably heard of her.

I've never heard of him because I don't know what he does. And this post does not say what he does. I will never know ._.

He is a scientist. He worked on some kind of something, but so have other people. I would like to know exactly what he did so I can praise him for his brilliant work.......
User avatar #97 to #69 - Loopholes (12/31/2012) [-]
He worked on crossbreeding plants and genetically modifying food using different plan DNA, to create plants that can grow in harsher weather and develop I higher yield per acre.
Doing so has meant that he could feed millions of people in third world countries.

Here's some of Penn and Tellers: BS about him:

And you are disrupting his wish of not getting fame and praise
User avatar #1 - deerbeer (12/30/2012) [-]
Well, he didn't want praise, and he didn't want to be worshiped.
User avatar #2 to #1 - mefuckingusta (12/30/2012) [-]
He should still be recognized.

" Borlaug was one of six people to have won the Nobel Peace Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal. He was awarded the Padma Vibhushan, India's second highest civilian honor". Just because you don't know who he is, doesn't mean he wasn't recognized.

He used an apostrophe. The spelling was valid.

11th century grammar. I am the king. I desire ******* beans
#168 to #160 - traelos (12/31/2012) [-]
The first known usage of the word ******* occured sometime around 1500 A.D. Why the **** would someone from the 1000's demand usage of a word that doesn't exist to them?
#170 to #168 - Macbeth (12/31/2012) [-]
Why am I on the internet without my 11th century grammar.

Hipster OP, this guy is like wicked cool, but you've probably never heard of him.

Everyone who has ever taken a class that taught evolution has heard of this guy, they just don't remember his name.

Fritz Haber was a Scientist.
His work on Nitrogen Fixing has so far saved more than 5 billion lives from starvation.
Most were a different race from him.
He wanted praise and money. He wanted to kill all of Germany's enemies. His only motives were creating better bombs.
And you've probably never heard of him.

> Haber
> Bacteria master race reporting in
#59 to #58 - anon (12/30/2012) [-]
But nitrogen fixation through the Haber-Bosch process has had disastrous affects on the environment, let alone the natural nitrogen cycle.
User avatar #126 - shinobidesu (12/31/2012) [-]
Maybe it's because he didn't want any praise, worship, or money.

We have never heard of him because he didn't want praise... If he wanted it, we would have.
User avatar #68 to #53 - heartlessrobot ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Actually, probably not. Most scientists who actually make advances in scientific fields are usually too busy working to be interviewed or their boss takes all the credit. The plus side is no one blames you if what you made kills someone.

"he didnt want any praise"

I've probably never heard of him because he didn't give a **** if anybody knew, OP.
#134 to #125 - kippa (12/31/2012) [-]
Exactly.
Exactly.
#194 - anon (12/31/2012) [-]
He also is partly responsible for rapid over population

Learned about him in bio class

Thanks OP, for making me feel like it's my fault I haven't heard of this man.
