Some soylentils have an interest in the Soylent food product, which claims to be complete, scientifically-based nutrition. Now Farhad Manjoo at the New York Times has spent a week and a half living off of it, and found it disappointing:

I just spent more than a week experiencing Soylent, the most joyless new technology to hit the world since we first laid eyes on MS-DOS.

Read the rest at the NYT: The Soylent Revolution Will Not Be Pleasurable.

    What scent is that? What makes you think roasted human smells any different from roast pork? The muscles from all of us mammals smell and taste the same, diet and exercise notwithstanding. Why bother eating your fellow animals at all? It simply isn't necessary.

    Take out your primal urges constructively on a loved one and stop with the pointless killing already.

    But it is TASTY.. why wouldn't you eat your fellow animals?

    I'm sure a tiger or a hyena would enjoy human flesh. Why won't you?
