Is it still safe to boil meat in a bag if your meat is grown in a petri dish?

 

As long as it can be smoked in an over-priced grill, I'm OK with it.......😉

I read that around the time it originally published. Seems odd and unappetizing, but at the same time would be better for the environment.

 

I also recently read a story about plant-based hamburgers being a hot ticket item at Costco. Basically the same as any other veggie burger, but supposed to be much more similar to a hamburger patty in terms of appearance, texture, etc.  They had samples at Costco the last time I was there. Still just a gross veggie burger - and the picture on the packaging looks much more like hamburger patty than the real thing.

I'll have a veggie burger every once and a while just to mix it up, but I'm not trying to convince myself it's a real burger... It's a veggie burger.

 

I'm much more comfortable with veggie options that are just that... veggie options.  When they try to recreate a meat product then it gets gross real fast (see tofurkey, vegan bacon, etc)

If it means we don’t have to eat insects as our main source of protein, I’m in.

 

If it comes between lab grown meat product or grasshoppers, gimme the grasshoppers.

 

I'm sure grasshoppers can be smoked on an overpriced pellet grill.

Meh, I'm sure if you would have told someone 100 years ago that they would be eating pressed together chicken nuggets or fish fillets or any of the other processed foods we are eating tons of today, they probably would have said the same thing.....

Hell, if you told someone 20-25 years ago that millions of people every day would pay $2-3 for a bottled water instead of getting a drink from a public fountain they would have told you you were losing your mind.

Paying for convenience.   Bottled water at Costco is $2.99 for a case of 40 half litre bottles.   Plan ahead and it is 7.5 cents per bottle.

It was free from the fountain for decades. Fountains were everywhere and so much as I know nobody ever died from dehydration during that period.

 

It would probably cost me $100 in gas, mileage and time to find a Costco. 

 

You could fill a thermos from your tap in literally seconds without ever needing to find a parking space amiright?

Water is free? Hardly. 

Nothing is free.

 

But your water analogy is similar to my chicken nugget analogy. Times change and someday we (or at least our kids) will be eating lab grown meat and a few generations from now, people will wonder how we ever got along doing it "the old fashioned way".

You can buy 35 packs of water at Fleet Farm for $3.00 and not have to pay a pretentious membership fee for the privilege of entering their building.

I hope we skip the whole clean meat stage and just go to eating some sort of fortified goo out of a packet.

Many if not most do not get recycled. Buy one and fill it out of your tap, it's not too hard really.

That's another alternative.   Costco was just an example.  The point was that a bottle of water isn't necessarily  "$2 to $3 as someone above posted.  More like a dime for most bottles. 

And then a person can have a sip whenever they want to without going to find those not so common anymore drinking fountains.

Refillable bottles and larger containers are readily available. In my opinion those who don't use them are both lazy and ignorant about their long range effects on our planet.

I've been called worse. I have about 5 or 6 cases stacked up in my garage at all times in the summer and another case in the garage fridge. 

 

That's your opinion but I'm sure though that if I walked through your house I could find a few things to call you lazy and ignorant over as well........

Or they just don't care, that one might be more applicable.

    • Maybe if no one was looking
    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
    • Big Dave I'm thinking it's a mountain lion or maybe a catamount. 
    • Sorry guys didn't realize posting a video would cause such a controversy! 😆. Anyways, yes, isolated cover has been what has seemed to work great for me, especially on pressured lakes. As far as catching bass goes, it's what I target 90% of the time in summer simply because I love the fight! Spring and winter I mostly target walleye then.
