Well, they get stem cells from aborted fetuses right? Maybe they could make baby back ribs that really taste like baby.

Scotty made it clear that the scotch out of the replicators didn't taste the same as real scotch.

Have we learned nothing?

Just stay away from Quorn. The faux-chicken, chicken tasting chicken.

It's a fungus, grown in vats.

Then shaped into chicken.

I found out that 20% of the population has a very, very nasty reaction. As in, you want to die. I wouldn't wish the experience on my worst enemy.

Fark that stuff.

Did thy have replicators in the original series? In TNG, he rejected Synthehol.

It was those dopey Irish people that rejected replicated whiskey (though, Klingon Blood Wine was A-OK).

Dopey Irish people? Dopey? Irish people? Unpossible.

I don't think I can talk to you right now.

Not quite. He was rejecting the equivalent of Sweet'N Low in favor of real sugar. Synthehol is apparently very different than ethanol, and one can taste the difference you are a regular drinker of "real" alcohol. However, one can disregard the intoxicating effects of synthehol when needed, instantly sobering up with little effort. This is why it's preferred on ships.

Since when do the unwashed masses deserve to eat steak? We should be feeding these people nothing but Krusty Brand Imitation Gruel, make sure their spirit stays broken.

FTFA: "Those who love real meat ..."

It IS real meat.

The only question is the flavor: grass fed tastes different than grain fed beef. Feed has an impact on the taste of pigs and chickens, too.

More than that. Assuming they can get it to taste right, consider the possibilities. Steak that has NEVER exercised. Imagine how tender that's gonna be. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Oh yeah, I'm in no way against the idea. But it's the "get it to taste right" that concerns me. Maybe meat that is "pure" and hasn't been influenced by what the animal ate will taste delish! Maybe it just needs to be smoked. Dunno - just don't want it to wind up getting its "real" flavor from a weird chemical bath (yeah, I know, smoking it basically a chemical bath, but yanno what I mean).

TFA is pretty lame, as far as info goes. I mean, are we going to be able to send in a kit to famine areas with a stem cell "mother" that can be used to replicate meat and feed or suppliment the diets of the starving? No time soon, obviously, but it would be nice to get a better handle on the technology so we can see some of the possibilities.

Wonder if those who are vegetarians solely because of animal rights (as opposed to "and/or health") would be ok with eating meat made from stem cells.

I get the feeling it will have the consistency and texture of liver. They're gonna have to give it at least minimal exercise.

2012-11-01 10:22:32 PM
OK, so where are we supposed to get all the manure organic farming needs?

And the several times as much needed if we are going to convert to organic from synthetic fertilizers?

Anyway, it'll really confuse the animal rights activists when they can't tell any more if someone's coat was made from animals or mink fur from stem cells grown in a vat

Beat (the Hayflick limit) meat and pump it out.

Guess one could create jerky chips (not worry with creating supporting `natural structure' required to produce a synsteak). Irradiate the product with Cobalt 60 and get that shiat on the shelves.

/not joking - any species sporting a culture that promotes the eating of haggis deserves only the best that can be cultured
