    If it works, tastes good, and doesn't cost a fortune, it's fine with me.

    But I do have my doubts about the taste, and not costing a fortune......

  5. In the link they say: by heating pre-mixed food packets containing animal muscle cells, oxygen, and nutrients.

    They also said "create 100 per cent pure meat without the need for animals to be killed and with no risk of contamination.

    So my question is where did the animal muscle cells come from and how did it get there with out amimals being killed? Maybe they don't kill the animal but just off one of the four legs or something like that.

    So there's the answer we have all been waiting for. Kill off all the domestic animals. ( for their own protection of course ) and then we'll grow all our food from their body parts. Their species will now be extinct of course but at least they arent being eaten by humans anymore. Peta has never explained what happens to the animals if we quit eating them. Do they seriously think farmers or anybody else would keep them alive if there were no point in raising them?

    You ask the Spouse , "what's for dinner tonight dear?" Reply "Its a nice cut of blob Honey, want some?" "No thanks I'm not hungry again tonight."

    Remember this movie... LOL

    Soylent Green is a 1973 dystopian science fiction movie depicting a future in which overpopulation leads to depleted resources, which in turn leads to widespread unemployment and poverty. Real fruit, vegetables and meat are rare, expensive commodities, and much of the population survives on processed food rations, including "soylent green" wafers.

    The results of this would be a loss of the meatcutting craft; it would become lore. Then, in the face of natural catastrophe, no one would have the skills necessary to survive if one had to rely on eating animal flesh for sustinance, should the power grid be sabatoged and the Cocoon Cookers of the world become inoperative. Makes me wanna resharpen my knives... they're not leading me down that path, nosirrie!
