I like crab cakes, mint chocolate chip ice cream, raspberries and lasagna. So does that mean that nestle is going to create mint chocolate crab cakes and raspberry lasagna for me?

Ewwww.

Ewwww.


Raspberry lasagna, done as a dessert-type thing, could be DELICIOUS - replace the marinara with raspberry jam, the noodles become some pastry-thing, use whipped cream (or icing) for the ricotta, and chocolate chips/chunks/cake for "meat".

// when is lunch?

Um... This Pearl Gray tea isn't what I asked for at all.

It will just be a granulated sugar dispenser.

Nestlé? Isn't that the company that markets those bland, waxy candy bars as chocolate? Thanks but no.

I'd like to see a robot build a better one than I can.

I actually heard a woman from France say "Ooh, La, La!" while staring at one of mine in the case.

That's when you know you did it right.

Journey through life
With a plastic boy
Or Girl by your side
Let your pal be your guide
And when it breaks down
Or starts to annoy
Or grinds when it moves
And gives you no joy
Cos it's eaten your hat
Or had sex with your cat
Bled oil on your floor
Or ripped off your door
You get to the point
You can't stand any more
Bring it to us, we won't give a fig
We'll tell you, 'Go stick your head in a pig'.

I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take a butcher's word for it.

That kinda begs a question - Much like 3d printers require spools of meltable plastic thread, would a food replicator require spools or cans of every possible ingredient? And at that point, why not just bring back the automat?

You do know those were just vending machines before we could automate them right? A normal sized human still made the food in the back and it still expired long before it was purchased.

I think using some common goop that can be infused with flavor is the way to go.

They got flying cars and robot maids, but instruct their machines using punch cards.

And what kind of future has no porn?

They could maximize their profit potential by using something of a soylent variety.

You could make a similar case against having a local cable TV channel giving the weather....the window has already been invented.

If Nestle thought they could invent the Food-a-Rack-a-Cycle, they probably would, even if a Hanna-Barbera
cartoonist had done it in 1962.
