Wednesday’s Leftovers


Armed with hefty grants from the Pentagon, squads of corporate and governmental food technologists are on a mission to supplant nature with a great leap forward in the Brave New World of synthetic foodstuffs.

Not satisfied merely to tinker with genetic re-engineering of nature’s products, these mad scientists have a God-like goal of “creating” new food (assuming that God is a supernatural robotic being with a wicked sense of humor and not enough real work to do). Who will eat the stuff? Soldiers are to be the first lucky consumers.

    Food Replicators will replace those terrible kitchen chores allowing housewives more time to chat with their friends on their Smartphones. Of course the food they produce will be heavily laden with GMO’s.

    Cold here, ugh. At least we’re not getting dumped on. They got plenty Up North though. I haven’t bothered going out for an evening walkabout. Not until the extreme cold lifts.

    Voice activated like in Star Trek, right.

    He is referring to the Star Trek television series, “The Next Generation’, the original series ‘Star Trek’ began in the 60’s and morphed into several off shoot programs all based around the writings of Gene Roddenberry a primo Sci-Fi guru to many who watch the “telly”.


  7. Den says:

    Many sociological viewpoints were explored throughout the “Star Trek” series and those off-shoots that would follow with variations in time and humanoid advancement adding ever-questioning thoughts in the viewers’ minds.
    Exploring new Worlds where no Man has gone before…

    Along the time line to a transitional episode for one of the chief character, O’Brian to a different series with the same thoughts in mind, between TNG(The Next Generation) to S-9 (Deep Space Nine)which was a continuation on the Series adding different characters. There were many series produced, some connected to previous series, some not. Very thought provoking in it’s exploration of the human psyche especially in the early days when controversial subjects such as mixed races were portrayed as equals.

    Bah Humbugs aside, the ever-present drama would boost the blood pressure!

    Very few TeeVee shows caught my eye, mostly comedy and sci-fi, oh, and car racing, it isn’t all bad, just the Nooz.
