"Cargo ship Peak Pegasus became a bit player in the US-China trade drama on July 6 when it raced against the clock to deliver US soybeans to China before retaliatory tariffs kicked in. Users on the social media site Weibo cheered Pegasus and its cargo on, with one user writing, 'You are no ordinary soybean!'

Alas, the ship arrived 30 minutes too late to the port of Dalian, and has been sailing in circles ever since."

The cargo is said to be worth $20 million.

And in other news, the South Americans are unable to fill the orders from China...Looks like the Americans may be the only game in town...At our price.

You can build a semi-conductor anywhere on the planet, including Antarctica. You can't build farmland, especially as fertile as much of the Midwest and Mississippi Delta.

Combine AI and GMO, we'll be able to plant food crops on plastic trash circles in the South Pacific.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

Interesting factoid...Some of the best farmland in the world is covered with concrete. Cities tend to grow around navigable water and good farmland.
