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.

Myst–Nintendo DS.

Yes its true. Nintendo, my favorite company in the entire universe, has released MYST on the Nintendo DS. For those of us who played Myst on our PCs back in the day, only to be slightly less thrilled with its follow-ups, this is a welcome trip down memory lane. So what’s different about the DS version of MYST? A few things:

– 2 new worlds: awesome. Not only are we getting a digitally remastered game we love, but it’s going to have some extra levels and clues (much like Master Quest, which I am about to start replaying).

– New tools: I remember when I played the PC version, I left little pieces of paper around with weird scribbles and codes and directions. The DS Myst comes with a notepad, and also offers a magnifying glass, a camera and a map….the old version had a map but you had to go to the library to look at it and couldn’t take it with you.

-New stylus interface: while this isn’t unexpected, how are they going to replace zip mode and hover features?

– original soundtrack with new additions: I absolutely LOVED the music of MYST and I plan on playing it with headphones, so I’m glad they kept the old music, remastered it, but added some more stuff for us to listen to.

Anyways I am soooo excited. This game was brilliant before such brilliancy existed in games.
