frankly speaking i'm quite disgusted by this idea.
@chiasmus i remembered you mentioned you're vegan. what's your take on this? because apparently some vegan youtuber are (is?) supporting this idea already.

I heard of this some years ago and it didn't really matter to me because I'm not a fan of mock meats to begin with.  So even if someone can produce real meat without animal suffering, I won't eat it.

I'm not sure if those vegans are supporting this idea because they can eat the real lab meat themselves or because less animals will die.  Either way, I'm not a vegan who goes around spreading the vegan gospel.  People have diverse views on everything and even vegans have diverse views about veganism among themselves.

I do believe that the inventor of this supermeat must have predicted its demand in future.  If the cost of producing such meat is low enough, I am pretty sure food businesses will start to use them.  I can see a China brand dominating the market in future when that happens. 

Come to think of it, didn't China already started by adding rat meat into their sausages?  :-X

China's method is more of 挂羊头卖狗肉。 The lab meat I read about last time is more like cloning the cells so that meat is produced.  The idea was that it will help the world food shortage problem too.

yes, apparently you can crack them open. just that the yolk and whites mix together immediately after, unlike real eggs. not high techny enough.
