In case you are wondering where Michelle Obama’s obsession with fat people is going, take a look at this food alternative.
Look at the disgust on the faces of these people as they taste this nonsense, and ask yourself if the entrepreneurs who created this stuff did it as a joke. Yet this joke got FUNDED!
TechCrunch reported that Rob Rhinehart’s Soylent, the nutritionally complete meal replacement shake/drink mix, has just closed out a $1.5 million seed funding round from a wide mix of investors led by Andreessen Horowitz and Lerer Ventures. This is on top of the $1.5 million in pre-orders the company already amassed as part of its crazy-successful crowdfunding run earlier this year.
Can you believe that investors anted up $1.5 millon for this blended wood? Why go through all the hassle of food production, when you can synthesize cardboard and sawdust and get the same results.
I have to believe that Rhinehart is an Obama donor who was part of “Soly”ndra, and who now needs a place to put his massive theft of the American public into another boondoggle. Yet another government-sanctioned program to see just how much they can test Americans’ limits when it comes to food.
Let’s be honest; Solyent is the crap we send to Third World countries who are starving their people. Except soylent is not exactly cheap:
Soylent is expected to begin flowing to early backers before the end of the year. Folks who purchased supplies after the end of the crowdfunding campaign will likely be waiting until at least early 2014 before they receive their packages. At least for now, it costs about $65 for a full week’s supply of Soylent ($3.10 per meal).
Now even peons can eat high-priced crap, and feel like they are part of the bourgeois establishment?
