Not so, even in jest. Check out Martha Crouch's web page at
http://www.bio.indiana.edu/people/terminator.html  It explains what
terminator technology is and how it works. In brief it is a genetic
manipulation of target crop plant species which prevents farmers from saving
seed for future planting. As such this technology has raised a hue and cry
from many quarters, especially areas where subsistence-level farming is
predominant and farmers rely on saving seed from one year's crop for the
next years planting.
