Well, ok another nitpick - if he had chatted a bit more with biologists he could have made the potato thingy more interesting.

What I was wondering while I read the book is: would it be possible to bypass the plant state and just synthesize nutrients using tabletop chemistry? Not very palatable, but potatoes get boring.

Being away from home many evenings per week and having a huge student debt in post 2007-2008, which you can't pay off quickly with your ridiculous low cost carrier salary, it should not be considered "disturbed" to wait until one earns more and has concrete personal plans before moving out.

Had I been more mature when I was 18, I would have stayed with my parents. I could have paid my apartment in cash and eaten healthy meals.
