"Brought to you by the makers of Soylent Blue and Soylent Red."

At least they made it to 60. In "Logans Run" they did not get to 30!

Re: Food alternative: Soylent

Even tho we are Cheap cruisers, food is Important to us! we enjoy eating well if cheaply! we can, as we have said before, both the fish we catch, and the veggies we find at local markets, or from local farmers ashore where ever we are at! we also bake our bread and goodies!! You would be surprised how well ya can eat, and how cheap it can be with a little thought and preparation. Just sayin eating well at sea makes for much more enjoyable trip and keeps ya healthy! And it had to be those darn hot dogs that killed that guy, cus good Rum Is one of the 4 food groups !!

Re: Food alternative: Soylent

Don't you feel like having some of this stuff on board would be perfect for passages for example. A shake for the morning and the lunch and then for dinner you can just cook some real food.

Ofcourse it is still untested as to how far it is actually healthy to have a diet like this, however it seems to at least be more healthy than the diet of lazy ****s like myself

Re: Food alternative: Soylent

"Soylent Green is People!"

A cry that would probably be overlooked by the mainstream media today.....

No thanks, I will pass.

Cheap coke will do that to ya...

O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,

Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.
