National Post Publishes Absolute Bullshit Re Beyond Meat

The absolute bullshit is this bit:

“For the last million years, we’ve evolved with a very specific diet that’s been based on whole foods,” [Michael] Rogers said. “There hasn’t been a change in our diets this drastic in all of human evolution with the exception of one event in human history: when the Neanderthals ventured from forests into pastoral land and started … agricultural practices,” more than 12,000 years ago.

I don't know who Michael Rogers is, but this kind of quote is the kind of thing that makes you think he isn't much of an expert.  I mean, the timing of wheat domestication is about right, a couple thousand years too early, maybe.  But the species is wrong.  The last Neanderthals walked maybe 40,000 years before crops were domesticated, unless Mr. Rogers knows something nobody else does.

Seriously, this is a big fat fucking boner of a mistake: Neanderthals invented agriculture.  BULLSHIT!!!   That the NP published it without  fact checking is embarrassing.  And if you are trying to criticize alt-meat, making this kind of claim isn't going to help.

PS.  I have never tried a Beyond Meat product nor do I have an opinion on the company.

Oh people, look around you
The signs are everywhere
You've left it for somebody other than you
To be the one to care
You're lost inside your houses
There's no time to find you now
Your walls are burning and your towers are turning
I'm going to leave you here and try to get down to the sea somehow

The road is filled with homeless souls
Every woman, child and man
Who have no idea where they will go
But they'll help you if they can
Now everyone must have some thought
That's going to pull them through somehow
Well the fires are raging hotter and hotter
But the sisters of the sun are going to rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister will you soothe my fevered brow
Rock me on the water
I'll get down to the sea somehow

Oh people, look among you
It's there your hope must lie
There's a sea bird above you
Gliding in one place like Jesus in the sky
We all must do the best we can
And then hang on to that Gospel plow
When my life is over, I'm going to stand before the Father
But the sisters of the sun are going to rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister will you soothe my fevered brow
Rock me on the water, maybe I'll remember
Maybe I'll remember how
Rock me on the water
The wind is with me now
So rock me on the water
I'll get down to the sea somehow

Here is a different take:

"This Is the Beginning of the End of the Beef Industry
Alt meat isn't going to stay alt for long, and cattle are looking more and more like stranded assets"

Beyond Meat Burger is pretty good IMO, better than Impossible Burger. My wife hates coconut though and it has lots of that.

And yes, the Neandertal thing was bad.

その客は初めてらしく、色々と質問をしていましたが、結局断ったようで、ママさんは私のテーブルに来ます。マ「マッサージ、セッ○ス、4200」勝「・・・。」(直球勝負やな・・・。)マ「ヤング」勝「OK」(元よりそのつもりでした)ママさんに導かれ奥に進みます。台湾キャバクラエレベーターに乗って着いた場所で別な方に案内されて、部屋に入りました。暗い部屋でしたが、目が慣れるとマッサージの施術台の他にベッドがあり、奥にバスルームがありました。結構広い部屋です。5分程待つとドアがノックされ、姫が登場しました。あまり期待はしていなかったのですが、想像を超えるほどの若くて可愛い姫です。日本語は話せませんでしたが、身振り手振りり濃厚です。オススメとしては、あまりカオにこだわらないで、スタイルの良さと性格がスレていないかどうか、を基本に選んだ方がいいと思います。そういうとあまりこのサウナ自体がオススメじゃない気もしてきますが、繰り返しになりますが、アタリを引けばプレイ内容はかなり濃厚です。から気に入った娘を選びます。で日本語の出来る方を選択。なんかその後、よくわからんが特別に3000台湾ドルでオッケーに。3500だとちの美女が見つかるお店です。正統派美少女、台北キャバクラモデル系、スタイル抜群の女の子多数在籍中!出台北の桃園空港到着は23時頃。サウナ【2020年最新版】 いパブKTV制服店絶対体験台湾式超遊台北遊アジアマッサージ台北夜世界台湾娘台湾の風俗台湾キャバク
