Soylent green isn't people; it's sewage mud [The Future]
Every so often, I get a glimpse of the future or the true nature of humanity, and I am horrified. These Japanese scientists have discovered a method to transform human waste--the aforementioned sewage mud--into a kind of meat-like product. Poop steaks, if you will. The bacteria of this sludge provides most of the protein for this future ground chuck, and I'm sure a generous dash of Worcestershire sauce wouldn't hurt either. Watch the video and see them make meat. Meat from feces. Yay science.
Are we really so desperate that our scientists and engineers have to focus their energies on such horror-inspiring projects since they clearly know we're doomed and/or running out of food and non-poop-based foodstuffs? Apparently so.
But, I'm here to say that I refuse to eat fecal food. I will eat Vienna sausages before I eat doodoo dogs, turd tartar, or, well, you get the idea. It's my culinary/dietary line in the sand.
I am curious to see what Nopa could do with this stuff, though.
