I suspect that it the EU wanted it badly enough, they would find a way to get it to Europe, even if they had to put it in those one litre cans from the hardware store that you put in your patio grill or your shop torch.

Ahh! Sorry. I yield to a superior sense of treachery. A fine idea. While we're at it, be sure to use a condom and then put a little habanero salsa in with the sand.

By what ratiocination have you decided that John Ransom's column is or would be a venue to explain to YOU how to 'fix problems'. Are you not a rational human being? Are you so wussy-whipped that you have no idea where to look for the sources of the problem? To divine how the statement of the problem might, just MIGHT suggest a route to a solution? Every engineer knows that a perceptive statement of any problem nearly always suggests a solution to that same problem. Mr. Ransom is not here, I gather, to address you directly and explain to you what's what in this old world. One would also expect that any *rational* adult would not be asking a total stranger for advice. . . . but that's just me.

You could probably get along after chewing one arm off to get away, but would you want to do it TWICE?
Worse yet, can you imagine being her husband and looking down at that mayonnaise mousse hairdo in moments of intimacy? I'd bet he doesn't do it often.
Perhaps the Onion junior staffers who did not understand the editorial focus, the metier, the raison d'etre of The Onion were quickly let go and subsequently picked up as writers for Rolling Stone. That explains the situation as well as anything else.
A concreted earthy mass perennially rotating across it's lateral or horizontal axis will always fail to accrete excesses of bryophitic materials.
