I bet 50 years from now when animal-free meat technologies mature and costs pennies a pound, we the unwashed masses will all be eating it. Then, a real burger made with real meat from real cattle will be considered rich people food.

Exactly. "Now w REAL plastic!!!" only at 3 star Michelin restaurants lol.

Really sickening stuff, I remember those TV dinners that one puts in the oven. Was decent and at least made w more real food. Just be gourmet compared to modern day crap. Scary.
Hard work, inheritance, interest on interest accumulating, and stock and real estate speculation. It's all good.

Agreed! Someone already mentioned that, but if it makes good popcorn chicken or chicken nuggets, that's still okay with me!

If given a choice, I would prefer lab grown meat any day. The quality might not be as good, but I would like to have a world that our kids and grand kids can still enjoy, so this is excellent news... Not a tree huger btw, just being realistic
