Your dog wants a book on microbiology.

Just wait until they figure out how to mass-produce it.

So if you clone your own flesh and make burgers out of it would it be nutritionally balanced.

What kind of stem cells exactly?

Wow, and I bet there is no way to make that cheaper over time.

Could vegetarians eat this?

Getting closer. Taco Bell and McDonald's are waiting with bated breath. No one will notice vat-grown meat in their Dorito Crunch Supreme Mexi-Melt™ or Double NuBaycon™ Whopper.

Step one. Find cows.

Step two. Use cows to make more cows.

I'm okay with it. It eliminates two of my major concerns over eating meat:

1. It's much more environmentally friendly. Meat is a horrible inefficient way to get calories.

2. It doesn't involve the death of a conscious being.

Ditto, you perfectly tanned shiatbird.

Getting meat production off the farms and into factories will reduce CO2 emissions a shiat ton (literally).

I'm cool with it as long as I can still get my Hot Fun and Bouncy Bubble Beverage.

I have to agree. I'd love to see Amazon or Netflix do another season or two of Better off Ted.

Veridian Dynamics. Friendship. Stealing.

Expensive...now. 3 years from now, dirt cheap. Like any new tech, once it gets going the price plummets. And everyone eats.

Don't pity the mighty cow. If given a chance, a cow would eat you and your family in a heartbeat. We do what we must, otherwise there would be herds of these beasts hunting us down.

It's us or them and the war has barely begun.

Do any of y'all remember when the book 1984 was a cautionary tale and was required reading in high school?

yeah.. those were the days

The in-Vitro burger was designed as a proof-of-concept to address the problem of a growing global population with a rapidly dwindling food supply.

Um....what?  The US could feed the entire world all by ourselves, with lots left over, if we ever felt like doing it instead of using the majority of our crops for biofules, paying our farmers not to farm, and then still letting massive supplies rot in storage towers.  Global food production increases have outpaced population growth for decades.  Starvation is an artificial problem created by economic imbalance, nothing more.

Dwindling my ass.

i was thinking about the bit in 1984 when the lead character is hanging with his buddy in the cafe.. the linguist guy, when linguist guy goes off about the synthetic meat, looking like meat, tasting like meat, but it wasn't meat, and how doubleplusgood it was.
