Submission + - Man Thinks He Never Has to Eat Again 1

silentbrad writes: From Vice: "You know what's a complete waste of time, money, and effort? Eating. I mean, wouldn't you rather just ingest a tasteless form of sustenance for the rest of your life and never have to go through that tedious rigmarole of opening and eating a premade sandwich or feasting on a pile of fried delicacies ever again? Rob Rhinehart—a 24-year-old software engineer from Atlanta and, presumably, an impossibly busy man—thinks so."

The article continues as Vice interviews Rob about his drink Soylent, which contains "Everything the body needs—that we know of, anyway—vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients like essential amino acids, carbohydrates, and fat"; why he stopped eating, "I started wondering why something as simple and important as food was still so inefficient, given how streamlined and optimized other modern things are. I also had an incentive to live as cheaply as possible, and I yearned for the productivity benefit of being healthy"; the merits, drawbacks, and more.

  • After reading Rob's blog, it's probably best to change the second link to http://robrhinehart.com/?p=298. Adding his third post about it may be beneficial, too: http://robrhinehart.com/?p=474.
