Would you like fries with that?

Dutch scientists believe they are about one year away from producing the first “test-tube hamburger” — that is, beef grown from stem cells.

I’m all for technology, and hamburgers are just about my favorite food, but this doesn’t sound at all appetizing. It doesn’t help that the lead scientist for the project isn’t too keen to be the first person to try it, either.

  1. Eeew! Didn’t they watch “Jurassic Park”? Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should!

    I’m going to pass, thankyouverymuch.

  2. Not only do we fail to learn from history, we fail to learn from highly-speculative fiction? :-)
