Test tube burgers

Yes, you read that right. Scientists have been working on this for a while now and predict that the first "meat" made from a cow's stem cells should be ready by fall. It just seems creepy that as you bite into your juicy 4th of July burger, it came from skeletal muscle tissue created in a laboratory from stem cells that mimic meat. Visions of Soylent Green come into my head when reading about this. The money quote from the article is below.

"Both scientists said no companies in the existing meat industry have expressed interest."
