Burgers grown in petri dishes?

This is so wrong. I don't even think the BGE could help this one.

    And it's **** like this that makes me want to do my best to eat and cook for my family as cleanly and paleo as I can...

    This gives me the willies and makes me think of the human batteries in the Matrix for some reason.

    At least it is a nicely formed patty...



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • How can you oppose something that's going to help control climate change?

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    @TexanOfTheNorth, only corn-fed beef from the industrial food system contributes to climate change in a negative way. Grass-fed beef from a sustainable farm doesn't. Know your farmer. Know your beef.  

    I feel compelled to recommend some reading on the subject. Check out The Omnivore's Dilemma, by Michael Pollan.  Please.

    Methane gas is methane gas whether it comes from a grass fed cow's ass or a corn fed cow's ass.

    and... regardless of how you feel about "climate change", the notion that growing beef in a petri dish will have any impact at all is complete ****!
