Anna the Red’s bento blog

Not very often does a blog so utterly genius come along that I bow my head down in complete respect. Anna the Red’s chronicling of the lunches she makes her boyfriend are art at its most edible and her genius in incorporating her tech geekiness into her designs just makes her number 1 on my list of real life people I’d most like to be pals with. I’ve outlined my faves below, but please visit her blog for detailed steps and how tos, and share her flickr albums with everyone you know that eats lunch.

5 dollar footlongs now permanent menu fixture

Okay, I’m sorry. But I’m defn. one of the idiots that got suckered in by this magnificent brilliance in music:

It’s true. My myspace even featured their techno remix. But I digress. Now, Subway has made 5 dollar foot-longs part of their menu! That’s right!! It’s not longer “for a limited time only!!” This is excellent news. For who I’m not sure, but its c-c-c-catching on.

I’ll have the soylent green with a slice of soylent orange and some soylent coleslaw.

Check out this fascinating article I read on the Times Website.

Basically, it talks about the development of “victimless meat”- beef, chicken, pork etc. grown from stem cells. We’re not talking fake here obviously, this is real meat, but unlike today, In Vitro (or In Meatro, as the author says, har har) will never have been attached to a leaving, breathing animal, and will be wholly created in a lab. This means it will be much more environmentally friendly by not using scarce resources (I believe it currently takes 5 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of meat) and not producing waste that harms the environment. Supposedly, scientists will also be able to manufacture it without using hormones, steroids, etc. and will be able to trim the bad fats out, making meat actually healthy.

Apparently, scientists feel that humans will never give up eating meat and that this is the best way-a sort of compromise. I don’t know…there was a time in life that I ate meat at every meal and laughed at hippy vegetarians, swearing I’d never be one, but I have been now for about 4 years (recently even went vegan) and I must say, it rules.

Anyways, apparently, PETA is behind this (I don’t understand PETA lately, they seem to be going bonkers, first, one higher up publicly states she eats at BBQ restaurants all the time and now they start contributing $$ to this? Weirdos.)

Seriously, people just need to discover Tofurkey and those amazing vegan meatballs at Whole Foods. No one would ever eat meat again!

Scientists discover 800 chemical compounds in flavorful Scotch

You can check out this interesting article here. But I really just wanted an excuse to post a picture of Lost’s Desmond (my favorite Lost character and boyfriend) drinking some MacCutcheon Whiskey. Enjoy.
