Soylent, the venture-backed startup snack that aims to replace food with oils and powders, has upgraded their nu-food. Optimization-obsessed techies will get a lot with the update: new packaging, better sealant on their oil bottles, and more flavor modulation. And best of all? The new Soylent will make techies tear less ass:
Soylent, the semen-esque food substitute financed by venture capitalists, is nothing if not resilient. It can keep you sated for hours with a full, gaseous feeling. It can even withstand reports of rats in its kitchen and still show up in The New Yorker. But slurping the fun out of life's most basic pleasure requires some social media marketing.
Soylent is a tough sell, as it's impossible to try it and not think about eating sperm. But it's a cult hit among a certain Silicon Valley subset, which swears it's actually a viable alternative to the venerable human pastime of chewing. It sounds (is?) crazy, but not too crazy to get a big new funding round.
