Vice blows the lid off Soylent
Aside from rats in the production line, mold, and clogging the drain, and neckbeards mixing this stuff 'listening to the music really loud' in a decrepit warehouse in Oakland, this stuff looks mmmm yummy.

Not real interested in switching to that shit anytime soon, but its good to try and come up with a option like this for countries with a food shortage and people dying from starvation.

He looks like shit to be 6 feet tall and weigh 140lbs.... I would think that would be awful skinny but he looks skinny fat. Instead of drinking some fake food for a month he should hit the gym for a month...and beyond.

The only people who will be attracted to this are people who don't like food.

The only people who will do well from it are the marketers who figure out how to sell it to women as a 'health' product.

RE: Vice blows the lid off Soylent
I can't figure out if I hate vice or like it. Some of the documentaries are good, but I don't know what to believe because I've caught then multiple times exaggerating or just flat out lying. I definitely don't dig the hipster vibe to it, but they do touch base on some cool things you don't hear about in the mainstream media.

RE: Vice blows the lid off Soylent
Ridiculous. Soylent is part of the obsession with productivity and efficiency above all else, driven by people who never learned how to enjoy good food.

Made by a generation of people who never learned how to cook and order take out all of the time.

Couldn't he just drink protein shakes all of the time?

RE: Vice blows the lid off Soylent
Have you ever been in a commercial kitchen in NYC? It's like a scene from "Ratatouille" -- rats everywhere. A rat in a warehouse in California? BFD.

Have you reviewed the FDA's guidelines for how much "rodent filth" they allow in traditional food products like popcorn and peanut butter?

Ooh -- one of the bags got moldy in shipment. Clearly the science is bad. And by the way, Amazon mangled one of my books in shipment -- when will the government shut down Amazon?

Why so much hate for what is essentially a science experiment?

Are you really "red pill" or a "blue pill" in a red coat?

You could say the same thing about any major news outlet. I think in this case they come in all unassuming and capture stuff like rats and filth and mold, and the people they are taping are disarmed by the neck beards.

Its not a 'science experiment', its a commercial business that has accepted over $2mm in funding, public and private. Did you even watch it or read the article?

Only a fucking moron would drink this stuff.

RE: Vice blows the lid off Soylent
The concept is lost on me because I don't feel like my time spent cooking, eating and washing the dishes is wasted. It's a quality time for relaxation, exploring new tastes and knowing that I'm taking good care of my body and of my dear ones (if they're invited to dinner). This might save me 1 hour per day, but I don't view that hour per day as a burden.

I'm willing to bet that most people "too busy" to cook for themselves will be spending that time slumped in front of the TV.

RE: Vice blows the lid off Soylent
This is a product whose appeal is based on nostalgia, irony, and faux rebellion. It tries to evoke the movie "Soylent Green," where there were shortages of food and the "food" given to the masses, i.e. Soylent Green, was made from people.

We get the typical overarching assertions right at the start to frame the entire video and get you to buy in, i.e. the future is going to be some Hobbesian struggle for food, so you better get ready. Oh, by the way we are making this totally hip ultra food that will address all those "problems."

Vice can be interesting, but at it's heart it is nothing more that hipster voyeurism. The people and cultures are depicted as "cool," but they really view what they show as more of an "authentic" amusement park for the enjoyment and discussion of people that are obviously cooler, i.e. the presenters in any given video.

Didn't the founder of Vice (who is a red-pilled alpha male) sell the company to a more liberal management? The programming definitely got worse.
