There is something very weird going on here....
Post #16 of this topic shows Greg Who Cooks quoting me from the thread about truffle salt.
I have not responded to that thread.
Where is Rod Serling when you need him?

I merged the threads. Unfortunately some people were posting to one thread and the different posts are not in logical order, but rather the order that they were originally posted.

I don't know if it can be fixed, I'll ask the Princess.

BTW, please use the report button. It gives us easier access to the problem areas.

Technically it is genetic intervention in natural processes. Whether you consider it "Frankenfood" is up to individual opinion.

Thank you Z. I am at least one who requested merging of this important and interesting topic. And I did use the report button because as a forum guru I know the report button is the best way to address moderation, because the report goes to a general moderator topic where any moderator can fix it, rather than sending it to a specific moderator where you have to wait until that specific moderator logs in.

The report button goes to a wire that all the moderators see, and the first one that think the report needs action can fix the problem immediately.

And as a forum software developer, no, you can't fix the problem about being out of sequence. The replies address different posts so the best ou can get is a chronological merge.

But it's good to note from the moderator that the topics were merged and some replies may be out of sequence due to the combination of two topics that were not temporally related before the merge.

You weren't alone, Hoot. I wondered where the truffle oil post came from, too.

PETA is well known for their illogical idealism. Their whole thing (as I understand it) is to not harm animals. Okay, so if we can make animal tissue in test tubes, tissue with no nerves or brains, where's the harm in that? It's not possible to hurt muscle tissue grown in a factory without nerve cells.

One ironic fact is that many vegetarians have dietary problems caused by absence of some nutrients necessary for health that are not available from purely vegetable sources.

If PETA were logical they'd be totally behind this: meat artificially manufactured without harming animals. It's sort of like Tofurkey, except it's Frankenturkey. Actually if they don't tinker the genes then it isn't even Frankenfood. Perhaps it will require a whole new category.

Just please, don't insert any insect genes... I eat insects only when camping, and only accidentally. (Okay flour etc. allows a certain amount of rat parts PPM--parts per million, not implying that rats are insects.)

One thing they'll find difficult to do is to grow artificial steaks, due to the structure, shape, marbling, all that. It's no coincidence that this first experiment resulted in hamburger--which has no form.

Give them time for the steaks. Have you seen what they can do to grow (external) ears?
