And that's another reason why you shouldn't go to theaters anymore. People laughing at a funny movie? That's cool. But now you have to put up with the thought police who didn't like the way you hold your popcorn and now want to question you. Probably interrupting a key moment in the movie for you and anyone else around you.

This isn't an open field, though. There are entry points to the "farm" and if they control what goes in and comes out, and if they keep an eye open for any proliferation of pests and take them out as soon as they show up, it's feasible.
Like the other guy up there, though, am more interested in the "nutrient" they are using. Unless they are changing the soil regularly or rotating crops, they must be adding something to the soil, and whatever it is, I doubt it will be very "organic".

This is an interesting question. The body generates that energy for a reason, to perform maintenance, to power up its system, and to store the excess as reserves in case of an emergency, right? So if we actually find a way of tapping into that excess, we could theoretically eat to our heart's content without a single worry.
