Default Eating In The Future?


From The New Yorker Magazine: "The End of Food - Has a tech entrepreneur come up with a product to replace our meals?"

This is about a possible solution to the devastation that has already been done to the Earth and more, actually I think that this guy is brilliant:

"Rhinehart compiled a list of thirty-five nutrients required for survival. Then, instead of heading to the grocery store, he ordered them off the Internet—mostly in powder or pill form—and poured everything into a blender, with some water. The result, a slurry of chemicals, looked like gooey lemonade...Drinking Soylent was saving him time and money: his food costs had dropped from four hundred and seventy dollars a month to fifty. And physically, he wrote, “I feel like the six million dollar man. My physique has noticeably improved, my skin is clearer, my teeth whiter, my hair thicker and my dandruff gone.” He concluded, “I haven’t eaten a bite of food in thirty days, and it’s changed my life.”

It concludes that Soylent be the meals that are not social or experience related, I enjoy eating, but this does make many good points, and there are times when I need to eat and nothing exists that I really want to eat.
