I agree. It's Frankenbacon.

I wouldn't eat it personally. I think it needs a whole lot more research before it even gets close.

Labgrown stuff is an interesting thought experiment though. If you're vegetarian because of philisophical reasons, do they apply to lab grown meat?

I'd be totally ok with this. Might not be as good as the real thing, but it might end up being perfectly ok.

I'm nerdily fixated on feed-to-meat conversion ratio and the overall economics of it. The article doesn't say.

How about bacon from actual real pastured pigs? I don't need some patented proprietary bacon when there's plenty of actual real pigs out there. One evil company named Monsanto is one too many. We don't need others.

My god...John Connor warned us this was going to happen...he just didn't say they were going to pull bacon into the war...

It's not well known, but if you sprinkle bacon bits onto a strip of bacon, time travel is then possible...we need to send back a hero to protect bacon in the past before it's Terminated...I recommend Robb Wolf, I saw him kill an elk with a spear, the man's a savage..we also need to send back some kind of love intrest for him other than the bacon itself or he may become distracted...any ideas?

Truth.

Nightmare. I would rather not eat frankenbacon with unknown health consequences. Nothing beats real bacon.
