Hell Is the Impossibility of Reason..

Operation Ranch Hand was a U.S. military operation during the Vietnam War, lasting from 1962 until 1971..Largely inspired by the British use of 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D (Agent Orange) during the Malayan Emergency in the 1950s, it was part of the overall herbicidal warfare program during the war called "Operation Trail Dust".. Ranch Hand involved spraying an estimated 20 million U.S. gallons (76,000 m3) of defoliants & herbicides over rural areas of South Vietnam in an attempt to deprive the Viet Cong of food & vegetation cover.. Areas of Laos & Cambodia were also sprayed to a lesser extent.. Nearly 20,000 sorties were flown between 1961 and 1971..The "Ranch Handers" motto was "Only you can prevent a forest"– a take on the popular U.S. Forest Service poster slogan of Smokey Bear..The herbicides were sprayed by the U.S. Air Force flying C-123s using the call sign Hades..A Ranch hand is a manual laborer on a ranch, such as a cowboy..

Herbicidal warfare is the use of substances primarily designed to destroy the plant-based ecosystem of an area..Although herbicidal warfare use chemical substances, its main purpose is to disrupt agricultural food production and/or to destroy plants which provide cover or concealment to the enemy, not to asphyxiate or poison humans and/or destroy human-made structures.. Herbicidal warfare has been forbidden by the Environmental Modification Convention since 1978, which bans "any technique for changing the composition or structure of the Earth's biota"..Texas A&M University notes that exposure to herbicides can produce mild symptoms, such as rashes, nausea and headaches; more dangerous symptoms, such as seizures and convulsions; and even death..Some herbicides can cause nervous system disorders, such as peripheral neuropathy..Animals that bring herbicides into the house may spread the chemicals around the home..Peripheral neuropathy is dam-age to or dis-ease affecting nerves, which may impair sensation, movement, gland or organ function, or other aspects of health, depending on the type of nerve affected - Genetic use restriction technology, colloquially known as "terminator technology", produces plants with sterile seeds - In September 2016 Monsanto agreed to accept Bayer's offer to purchase the company for $66 billion ($128/share), pending regulatory approval... am the world's first fully functioning homicidal artist..Haven't you ever heard of the healing power of s laughter?..New and improved Joker products!.With a new secret ingredient: Smylex...
