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.

" 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.

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.

But nitrogen fixation through the Haber-Bosch process has had disastrous affects on the environment, let alone the natural nitrogen cycle.

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 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:

He used an apostrophe. The spelling was valid.

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?
