Same here. Love my grass fed beef and farm chickens.
Have you seen the movie "King Corn" ? Sorry to drift off topic.

My friend Allie Moore (an environmentalist) agrees with me that the safety of the chemicals is a big question and that it doesn't sound very green. With an organic polymer that complex, it's hard to even imagine how it could go wrong. (Just think of the difficulties in making organic polymers for OLEDs...) And I bet it takes a lot of energy to manufacture the chemicals in the first place.

Mike, I think what they're trying to achieve is basically cloning cells, not synthetically manufacturing them.

Nah, he is holding out for the other one, typical love triangle.

Hell, people don't complain about bean curd, what's wrong with meat curd?

I have made an analogy about the situation that involves fuel efficient cars. I think of Hannah Tucker as like the EV1. (Everything was going well with her until she just decided to end it for no good reason.) And I think of Allie Moore as like the PHEV Prius. (Looks like something good is going to happen but I have to wait...) But that's going off topic...

Maybe there's an application for that besides food? What about clone electric eel cells to make biological fuel cell batteries? Just imagine an EV with them... Fueled by American fat...
