Is the coffee variety GMO? The article doesn't actually say that.
The article doesn't say specifically, but it does reference the related coffee genome sequencing research--so it appears that these beans are genetically engineered somehow.
Australia is basically an entire continent of Omak residents.
Yes. As far as Australia is concerned, a 6/10 idiocy rate is something to _aim_ for. Australia is a country modelled on English prisoners and wardens beating the shit out of dark-skinned natives and forcing them out to the desert in tin shacks, then having the audacity to tell others not to "invade" "our country". On the whole, Australia is even dumber than America.
Let's not be too hard on the Aussies. First, it seems a bit hypocritical for Americans to criticize the way another country has treated its dark skinned residents. Also, they did recently get rid of their Bush toady Prime Minister and elect someone who opposes the Iraq war and is committed to the Kyoto Protocol on greenhouse gas. Maybe someday we'll do the same.
Australians: Gee, so a little propaganda by the tobacco companies produces serious denial by the local population; never knew *cough cough* global climate change denial *cough cough* that could EVER happen !
Yeah, the Ozzies also pretty much rule the known world when it comes to harm reduction programs...they've got something like 6 times the number of syringe exchange as the US, with a fraction of the population.

10 out of 10 smokers, no matter the continent, are dolts.
Once Australians reached the New Guinean highlands (pretty much the only inhabitable part of the island) in the 1930s, they begged off conquering and colonizing the area. It would seem that they finally learned their lesson in that regard, too bad for Australian Aborigines that they didn't learn it soon enough.
