I was watching the Colbert Report and saw a segment on lab grown meat. It's starting to get funding from Peta and I just wanna know: Is this shit for real?

And if so, is this a great scientific breakthrough or are we screwing with nature too much.

I'd eat it.

I dunno, does the fake meat have fake blood in it? If not, that'll lose a lot of its flavor/juiciness.

I doubt it'll be really marketable for years. Should it get to the point that it actually looks and tastes like the real deal I'd be open to it. But only if it was cheaper. Other than a niche in the economy for vegan/vegetarians and people way too concerned over diseased animals (eg mad cow), I don't think it'll ever be a staple unless it's cheaper.

I wrote a test in school about this some months ago. If this is going to be sold in the near future, I'd probably try it out.

The word Shmeat sounds like something an old, uptight Jewish man would say.

Real, rare, bloody meat > anything science can crap out.

I sometimes make lifesize replicas of Dexter out of meat. Shmeat would save me money and I'd be killing less Cows!

Nieh is a vampire. This explains SO much.

I see it marketable as a soylent green alternative.
