Re: Beyond Meat.


We are chemical factories one day they'll figure it out.


On another note for the third time in two days somebody told me of somebody they know in their 90's still smoking cigarettes. One camel no filter......

Oy vy...lol. some are the belief the American cigarettes have formaldehyde in it those in Europe do not. And that being the difference in consequence.

As far as fake meat... I don't care if you could inject me with nutrients and I could get the very most nutrition and live to be 300 by only getting good nutrition. I would shorten my life span and still eat meat. I like it more than anything else.

I know perfectly well with how much meat I eat it borders on unhealthy. I don't care. I don't drink too much. I don't do drugs. I like to eat bacon friend eggs with a side of ribeye from last night. So be it.

I only have so much time on this big round ball. I'd rather spend some time enjoying it rather than always thinking about how it might end.

The hipsters can have their tofu, I'll pick up their slack in four legged mammals.

It'll settle of course, but I think this is a good one to hold onto.

Re: Beyond Meat.


I can't imagine a more highly processed food than vegetarian meat.

I tend to eat actual food, as opposed to a concoction.

I think the stock will run until it's discovered it may cause gangrene of the genitals.....

Re: Beyond Meat.


Yeah I try to steer clear of "engineered food".

What's in it? It's obviously Roundup resistant, so it's from genetically modified crops. If they try to sell you on all organic...it's BS.

What in it? How far did they go to create this new fad? It's obvious from big pharma the FDA don't give a chit.

So let's get an unbisaed lab report.

Re: Beyond Meat.


Playing IPOs is a unique game. Keep in mind, the VCs that backed this will try to keep the founders from getting rich by selling their stock early.

Sure. The interest comes right off the top. Pump and dump. And like that.

On a more sinister note remember.........You are what you eat

Re: Beyond Meat.


I don't imagine this will be too popular in the ranching states. Kooks on the coasts might enjoy this chic eclectic fad but we here in the heartland like our animals enough...we eat them....Their milk and eggs too.
