icky science fiction becoming icky science fact?

I came across a recent Slashdot article, PETA Offers X-Prize for Artificial Meat, which reminded me of a recent Torchwood episode, Meat, where a poor alien whale-like thing is trapped in our dimension, and some cold-hearted entrepreneurs sell parts of it that they hack off on an ongoing basis, putting the alien flesh into the local food supply and torturing the poor creature.

When I sent the article to jcobleigh, his response was "Soylent Green is people!"

Utterly ick.

Of course, that doesn't mean that I won't find myself eating the stuff someday.

But still.
