Q: How can I tell if a plant given to me is patented?

J. MusserSometimes, I receive an unlabeled plant start from a friend, and they do not know if it is patented. If I want to grow and sell a plant in question, is it okay to just take the chance, or is there a way to find patents?

^People can't seem to tell that this is a theoretical question.
@lostsock really?
 
wow 30 minutes and still there
 
@Frank the answer, not the question
 
finally gone
jan won't be happy when he gets back
 
1:31 AM
@lostsock Heh
Be sure to cringe appropriately when he does.
 
is there a lot of flags in mod SO queue?
 
@lostsock Yup.
 
1:58 AM
@Frank inb4: people will get patented
 
@Braiam :)
 
@Frank i upvoted
 
@lostsock Ah. I didn't.
 
maybe you could ask on patents.SE , that site is really struggling
 
@lostsock You don't have an account on GL.
 
2:03 AM
@Frank I upvoted, and it said "Thanks for your feedback"
 
Ah, anonymous vote
 
@lostsock Seems it did well on GL.
@lostsock It's still at +18, so it didn't register. It doesn't let you vote unless you are logged in and have enough rep.
 
But it is registered in SE. I remember I can see it on SEDE
 
@AndrewT. Well, it doesn't do anything on the site.
 
2:14 AM
@AndrewT. It says:
> Expected value of QuestionId to be a int!
 
@Frank whoops, use 3808 for the question ID
 
@lostsock wow, only 8 accounts.
 
I'm a newb
 
@AndrewT. OOPs. Thanks. Looks like +57 -6
@lostsock Funny, you have 68 rep on diy, and I have 65. :)
 
@Frank :( I started a bounty to get like two badges :(
 
2:20 AM
@lostsock I did a bounty too. That's the only site where I have less than 101.
 
they have cool wood badges
they probably had to kill at least 1 tree for all my badges on there

@lostsock 10 months isn't that new.
@lostsock Hey, be nice. :(

Hyperion is the name of a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) in Northern California that was measured at 379.3 feet (115.61 m), which ranks it as the world's tallest known living tree. Despite its great height, Hyperion is not the largest known coast redwood; that distinction belongs to the Lost Monarch tree (based on trunk volume). == Overview == Hyperion was discovered August 25, 2006, by naturalists Chris Atkins and Michael Taylor. The tree was verified as standing 379.1 feet (115.55 m) tall by Stephen Sillett. The tree was found in a remote area of Redwood National and State Parks purchased...
 
@lostsock Yup. And here's the world's biggest (volume)
The General Sherman is a giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) tree located in the Giant Forest of Sequoia National Park in Tulare County, in the U.S. state of California. By volume, it is the largest known living single stem tree on earth. The General Sherman Tree is neither the tallest known living tree on Earth (that distinction belongs to the Hyperion tree, a Coast redwood), nor is it the widest (both the largest cypress and largest baobab have a greater diameter), nor is it the oldest known living tree on Earth (that distinction belongs to a Great Basin bristlecone pine). With a height...

@InfiniteRecursion It's tagged as , but smells like for people to comment after downvote.
I think it has beeeeeen discussed so many times, however I couldn't find a good dupe.
 
@AndrewT. yes, and strongly resembles a rant
 
that one too duplicate.
 
Is it right to edit an answer from being wrong to being right? Or is this "fundamentally changing the intent"? stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/5990453
 
according to the link there should be '+' instead of '-'
 
Right - so this edit is OK because the original intent was to match the link eh?
Thx

6:10 AM
But in the link they do +Math.abs()
 
user259867
The value is negative. Subtracting a negative value is the same as adding its absolute value.
 
This is where it gets into troublesome territory: now we're assessing whether the edit is technically correct or not.
 
even in answer user do - Math.abs()
 
user259867
I think the edit makes the post worse. As originally written, it's more or less clear: you subtract signalLevel because higher level corresponds to smaller distances.
 
That says to me "if there's a doubt that this edit maintains technical integrity then reject it"
(In this case I just skipped over, but I'm curious about what's right)
 
6:12 AM
I did the math by hand, it should be minus
wait...
 
waiting mode activated
 
I think the question here trascends whether it should be +or - ;)
 
user259867
When correctness is unclear, an option may be to reject but keep the contents of the edit, posting as a comment to the author (with attribution).
 
I like that one, M. Bear.
 
Actually, the edit suggestion was correct; it should be +. But it's quite dangerous to suggest an edit without commenting/clarifying it first, so rejection would be suitable. Otherwise, just use your skip.

ChrisMy cubicle neighbor belches, farts, chews his food with his mouth wide open and makes moaning noises when he eats as if he was having some private time with himself.

Answer to question in title: Yes, but it's stupid. Look at a cat's teeth, they are not the teeth of a herbivore. They are the teeth of a carnivore.

thinks Uni's ants and his mouse will get him review banned again
 
That happens in LQP sometimes too. Fortunately all of those answers are link-only in the queue when I go reviewing, so me clicking recommend deletion with too long of a click actually recommends deletion twice.
