Catholic watermelons against seeds

[-] elliot_crane@lemmy.world 108 points 2 days ago

I like how the watermelons have a whole 10K more likes. Let’s go watermelons!

66% more likes!

[-] samus12345@lemmy.world 48 points 2 days ago

Every seed is sacred

Every seed is great

If a seed is wasted

God gets quite irate!

[-] iiGxC@slrpnk.net 13 points 2 days ago

soo... cum in seedless watermelons?

[-] bmsok@lemmy.world 6 points 2 days ago* (last edited 2 days ago)

Yes. American Pie - Summer Edition. Just as warm, but a little bit wetter.

I too will be joining the seedless watermelons against Catholics.

Who do they think they are?

[-] hexabs@lemmy.world 5 points 1 day ago

Seedy folk, that's for sure

[-] emergencyfood@sh.itjust.works 33 points 2 days ago

What's wrong with seedless watermelons? Are GMOs forbidden by Christian law?

[-] niucllos@lemm.ee 15 points 2 days ago

Funny thing is they aren't even GMOs, they're hybrids between tetraploid and diploid watermelon cultivars. You could do it yourself in your backyard if you can find tetraploid seed for sale, or make it yourself with colchicine

[-] basxto@discuss.tchncs.de 1 points 22 hours ago

I wonder if they are also against pepper mint.

[-] Dudewitbow@lemmy.zip 25 points 2 days ago

probably same reason why some are anti birth control. kinda playing against gods role by manipulating the natural result.

[-] MentalEdge@sopuli.xyz 33 points 2 days ago* (last edited 2 days ago)

Should someone tell them why watermelons are so big and delicious in the first place?

[-] rickyrigatoni@lemm.ee 2 points 13 hours ago

Because god put them there as a tasty treat for his most faithful hippopotamuses :)

[-] Neato@ttrpg.network 18 points 2 days ago

They need to learn about bananas.

Also like, 100% of all agriculture and livestock. Fuck. Look at what we did to wolves. If god didn't want us to fuck around with genetics they wouldn't have made them malleable.

[-] JasonDJ@lemmy.zip 6 points 2 days ago

Obviously agriculture is a lie. Cows and sheep and donkeys and chickens and dogs always existed exactly as they do now since that's how God made them and they never changed.

Or something.

[-] Aceticon@lemmy.world 1 points 1 day ago* (last edited 1 day ago)

Well, the universe was create 6000 years ago so obviously domesticated animals have always been as they are. /s

[-] JasonDJ@lemmy.zip 1 points 1 day ago

You know the saying, "it didn't happen if it isn't in writing"?

That must apply to all of prehistory then, right?

[-] Deconceptualist@lemm.ee 14 points 2 days ago

🎼 Every seed is sacred / every seed is good... 🎶

[-] IWantToFuckSpez@kbin.social 16 points 2 days ago

It makes priest horny for castrated choir boys.

[-] PenisWenisGenius@lemmynsfw.com 10 points 2 days ago

My parents hate GMO everything because it contains liberal mind control chemicals that turn people trans.

[-] basxto@discuss.tchncs.de 1 points 22 hours ago

My deepest condolences.

Seeded Catholic altar boys against Catholicism

Where's the group for being against Catholics and watermelons?

Seeds Against Watermellons and Catholics?

[-] smuuthbrane@sh.itjust.works 23 points 2 days ago

I dunno, while I support everyone's right to their own beliefs, some of their past actions and even current doctrine do not sit well with me.

The Catholics aren't much better.

[-] lugal@lemmy.ml 12 points 2 days ago

Exactly. How long will watermelons keep silent about the genocide?

[-] smuuthbrane@sh.itjust.works 12 points 2 days ago

The genoseed hasn't been talked about enough.

[-] CareHare@sh.itjust.works 6 points 2 days ago

Tensions between the watermelons and the cavaillons have always been high, but now we're just at a pitting point.

To be fair seedless watermelons suck

[-] The_v@lemmy.world 32 points 2 days ago

Now why seedless watermelons suck is an interesting story.

The first intentional creation of a seedless watermelon was done in 1939 in Japan. University breeding programs in the southern U.S. after WWII began using the technology to create the first hybrids. In the early '50's and '60's multiple tetraploids were created by the university programs and released to private companies to produce seed with.

These tetraploid lines were "greys". "Greys" were selected to have a thick hard rind for long distance shipping. They were barely red on the inside and tasted slightly bitter. They all sucked for flavor.

A seedless watermelon hybrid is made by crossing a tetraploid female by a diploid male. The resulting hybrid (triploid) has 3 copies of every chromosome and is sterile.

Fertile stable tetraploids take a long time to create - around 15 generations of you are lucky. Seedless watermelons also took a long time to gain popularity in the market. So nobody put significant money or time into creating more tetraploid inbreds for over 40 years.

From the 1980's when seedless watermelons were introduced until around 2010, everyone used those shitty old tetraploids as 2/3rds of the hybrid. Since 2010 companies have created new tetraploid to use, but a significant portion still use 70 year old shitty ones.

Is it bad that I scrolled to make sure it wasn't a shittymorph before I decided to read the rest?

If God doesn't want us fucking with their creations, they're more than welcome to hold a press conference.

Until then, I'll keep assuming they're emotionally crippled howard Hughes style in the Heaven Penthouse drinking their own divine urine and shouting random conspiracies about which Angel is gonna pull a Lucifer next.

"If that is okay, please give me absolutely no sign."

I'm pretty sure there aren't any eunuchs around anymore. Otherwise there would still be castrati.
