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.

    ha, ms-dos joyless? maybe now, but back then, shit I was enthralled, never really got the hang of cp/m (or the version they used on Amstrads) and manually flicking switches or wiring up a programmed board, now that was joyless as it was unlikely to ever work right first time ;) my breakfast is far cheaper than that too, currently I'm doing a discount energy drink or two, 20-40c a day when bought in a pack of 24.

    um, yeah, energy drink sounds real nutrional.

    2 eggs and potatoes, 50c.

      don't forget gas or electric cost :) I'm still trying to decide if it's more nutritional than the nothing I was having previously.
