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.

    That's what i like about the linux command line... it's a better DOS than DOS (although DR-DOS was a better DOS than MS-DOS).

    And rice cakes with peanut butter and honey is even cheaper for breakfast... mmmm... styrofoam.... (Homer drool)

    I, too, preferred DrDos, and FreeDOS as well. It, too was superior to MS's OS.
