It tasted "a bit dry" due to the lack of fat. The future of food?

Mmmmm. Meat.

Clearly it's time to grow human meat.

Imagine: prick your thumb, drip into a petri dish, then wait 6 months.

6 months later, mental barriers break down, and cognitive dissonance occurs. The more optimistic among us would think this was the opportunity to design the perfect food.

On one hand, this has the potential to reduce the resource footprint of the average human a bit. Now we just need to maximize intelligent output per capita...
Generic misanthropic crowd-pleasing statement, potentially with a subclause betraying a hopeful vision and steps the writer believes would make that vision real.

I agree.

The objections are ridiculous.

Not only would this be more humane, but it would be safer... for us. It would eliminate lossage by allowing more precise targeting of meat maturity.

And best of all, if we really got it cooking, we could have tons of inexpensive and tasty meat.

I mean, we have that anyway, but it's inaccessible until the laws on cannibalism are changed. Eat the weak!
