@coldacid all I’ve seen is a couple “Hey look, free ‘money’! I wonder what will come of this?” conversations
@coldacid no, but I’m curious if you’ll find a buyer
@adam man, I love Wallace and Gromit. This should catch eyes on iTunes for sure!
@ProfWorr He's the one I've got so far!
@grocerybag Good use of the "sensitive content" feature
@ServerStatus your apology needs a few more performatives

Dead grasshoppers coated in chocolate will always beat some factory-produced bug-based fake-meat option.
@MartinJJ That's what spurred the thought, but I'd argue that other "fake"/imitation foods are also dumb.
I'd rather come up with an objectively delicious meat-free meal than make something that tries to be as close to a hamburger as possible.
I don't need my tofu to be on a plastic stick and coloured/flavoured to taste like chicken to enjoy it.
I'd rather have no whipped cream on my dessert than fake "whipped topping".
Thanks to CES reporting, I've realized that I don't get the point of fake food.
If you don't want to eat x, why are you coming up with weird concoctions of stuff to be as similar to x as possible?!
Obviously this is different in the case of when one *can't* eat something, like when you are lactose-intolerant but really want some Weetabix.
@DrChris I've always said there's two groups of vegetarian/vegan foods: the ones that try to be like meat (impossible burger, chicken flavoured tofu on a stick, etc) and the ones that are honestly good but in their own category (bean-based dishes, salads). The challenge is that comparing a delicious vegan salad and a cheeseburger on a menu at the same restaurant makes one look way better than the other. The impossible burger helps keep things seeming "fair", to the benefit of the restaurant.
#4: Be able to honestly answer a survey/census question like "How often do you attend religious services?" with "More than once a week" without having to resort to rounding up.
#3: Get to a comfortable level of proficiency sight-reading chant notation.
