If we can't smell in our sleep, why can I smell things when I'm dreaming?

Pardon my ignorance, but what's the difference between hybridization and genetic modification in corn? Just less time involved?

Hybridization is when two or more existing types of corn are bred together to make a third type. That third type is then a Hybrid of the other two.

Genetic Modification requires that the genes of a corn plant are modified via scientific procedures so that the resulting corn is a unique and different plant than any of the species that are used for it's base. The resulting corn is genetically modified.

While on the subject of "gas" humans can't fart in their sleep either.

Maybe in your world, but in mine, they do it all the time. You're lucky not to have experienced it.
