The 59th Minute
Whereby a famous geneticist explains the principle of exponential growth to Crabby

Imagine that you have one test tube that is full of food for bacteria for one hour. Every minute, the bacteria population will double. For example, the first minute, you have one bacterium in the test tube. At minute two, you have two bacteria, at minute three, you have four bacteria, at minute four you have eight, and so on. When will the test tube be half full?
At minute 59.

According to the extremely handsome famous geneticist, that's where our world is poised today. We are in the 59th minute of our test tube, and half our food is gone. We have one minute left to find a solution to our damaged environment and shrinking food supply.

Inspiring or terrifying?

I am CJ Craig
I just hosted my first media scrum and press conference. It was chaotic. It was invigorating. It was terrifying. I got to call out "last question please."

I only threw up once.
