Come for the Steak Puns, Stay for the Butchering Demo

"There has never been more interest in disrupting the way meat is produced, consumed and communicated to the public. Yet, significant barriers exist to scaling current approaches. The following are a summary of the challenges we will be tackling over the course of the weekend."
—Today marks the start of Hack//Meat, a weekend-long conference/competition/multimedia event about making and eating better animals. There are prizes, and judges, and although it's physically happening in New York City, at Grind workspace, there are ways to follow along and contribute via Twitter, if you're interested (#hackmeat). Lots more information here

My question about meat is: If you have it only rarely (and rarely), but get nice restaurant versions that often come in bigger portions than you're used to, so you take the remainder home and eat it over the next couple days or three — does that count as eating meat more than once a week? I mean, of course it does. And I guess the answer is to split the entree with someone else, if you know you're not going to finish it. Okay, today is already off to a great start.

Yes, because it's more than one serving of meat. One serving of meat is actually pretty small.

@Megano! I know. I'm an idiot. & I guess more prone to rambling in the morning. Sorry about that!

@stompy --Yes, I agree. Going out of your way to create something you can kill and it will taste better than the other, mundane dead animals who didn't taste quite good enough or weren't produced to your exacting "ethical" standards seems so wrong. And I can't decide which of the two possible senses of "Hack//Meat" is worse to me: the brutally honest (hacking with a cleaver) or the twee "new-carnivore hipsters against the status quo."

@stompy Well, but. How else do you improve the production of meat? And it's not just about making better-tasting meat. People eat meat, you aren't going to stop that any time soon, can't we try to do it less awfully?

Also, the part where Louise's bag gets knocked over in class and the evil teacher guy starts pawing through it? Apparently, the big joke was that he found birth control pills -- unopened. And he mocks her That's what finally pushes her into making the voodoo doll. no flame e cigarette
