The Associated Press reports that a team of scientists in the Netherlands fried a hamburger made of meat grown in a lab. That’s right, muscle cells from organic cows + science + $330,000 = meat!
3 More Things We’d Like To See Scientists Grow In Labs
1. Scripts for new animated movies where vehicles and other inanimate objects can talk. Not because we want to see a movie worse than Cars 2, or a movie about talking airplanes. But rather, because we want to see a script about talking petri dishes and beakers, which would certainly result.
2. Scripts for TV shows mocking movies about talking inanimate objects. Sure, that already happened on the Simpsons in 2005, which parodied the genre with a fictional movie trailer about a deck of talking playing cards. We just want to see more TV shows like this, since the fact that a movie about talking airplanes opens this week indicates nobody got the Simpsons memo!
3. $330,000 in gold. Someone’s gotta pay for these expensive burgers!
