no, I wouldn't eat lab-grown meat, and no, as far as I know you're not unclean
I don't understand (lab-grown meat doesn't have "face"; unless you wouldn't eat it for some other reasons - I wouldn't either), but I guess it would be obtrusive to continue asking you questions. Thanks.

When will people like Cuch and Paul see the light and become vegetarian or vegan? (or atomist-Pythagorean diet) ? Not too late!!

Plastic party balloons forbidden to send up in several towns around here, makes fully sense, it is is polluting randomly...   

Plastic balloons can quite effectively be taken down by drones I think before entering air-space above your property.

Any commercial drones that can automatically patrol borders? they have GPS, so should not be so difficult to program. One warning, and if not changing course, take them down (with paper bullets) !

Only hot-air ppaper balloons allowed to enter my air space!

Humans starting to get full og microplastics well some of it comes out again, but some is likely absorbed

"Once inside the human body, can plastic nanofibers—some five times smaller than the width of a human hair—work their way into the bloodstream, lymphatic system, or perhaps even reach a person’s liver? To date, all of that remains a mystery."

Does it mean we have to recycle our poo?

Seriously, what we excrete with faeces is what didn't get through the gut mucosa, which prevents harmful substances from entering the body proper. As it's no revelation that plastic is present in food, we should rather worry if it didn't come out...

yes the plastic is recycled, it goes out on the farm fields, some countries has limit set to max 0.5% micro plastics on what is spread out on the farm fields. It also contains plenty of chemicals. Several places forbidden to have as foundation for roads as considered too toxic for near by water, but farm fields are considered perfect dumping place (normally far from dense population areas). They say you are what you eat, but less people know that they are what they...

At least you have a clear picture of the situation. British plastic recycling companies are currently under investigation for dumping (or paying someone else to dump) trash illegally - despite being paid by councils (money of losers like I) to recycle it: https://www.independent.co.uk/environme ... 91736.html

It started happening last year when China closed the waste chute. Britain is sending a lot of our trash to Poland. In a typical for Poles entrepreneurial spirit, they formed a "trash mafia". They offer recycling to British companies, but since no one in Poland is really controlling it, they just dump it in random places or burn it (which sometimes starts serious fires). It brings to mind PK Dick's dystopian world (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... h-tip.html)

There's too much plastic trash. We have no choice but to eat it. Again and again... I've heard about a horror movie Human Centipede. I haven't even tried to watch it (maybe in a couple of years, when I recover from watching von Trier's Antichrist).

Compostables Were Meant To Save Us From Plastics. They’re Overflowing Landfills
After realizing the company that collects its waste cannot process compostable cups, London’s Heathrow Airport has asked two of its biggest coffee chains to stop using them.
