I was chug-a-lugging my “Future Lunch” this past afternoon while reading a recent article on medium.com. Then I got to thinking. “Mmmm this tastes really nice! How did I ever survive without it? I wonder if Elon Musk or Bill Gates would enjoy this nutritionally complete shake as much as I do?”
Us “Future Foodies” clearly put a huge emphasis on being able to get a nutritionally complete meal for pennies a day. “The Old Fashioned Foodies’” pre-2013 notion of “You get what you pay for” is anathema to our subculture. Here the opposite idea, “the cheaper, the better”, is our credo.
But what if like the Musks and the Gates of the world, money was no object for you?
What if you had a practically unlimited budget to spend on food? Say you win the lottery and all of a sudden you could afford to buy anything in the world to eat.
If you were rich, you could also afford to pay people to prepare your food for you. So you yourself would be expending zero effort and time on food prep or washing dishes. Would “Pre-2013 Food” still be unappealing to you if you got to enjoy it without having to expend any time or effort on preparing it?
You could also afford a personal trainer to help you stick to a workout regimen. Keeping your weight in check.
You could afford a personal nutritionist to plan all your meals. So you wouldn’t be overwhelmed by having too many food choices to decide on. Your live-in nutritionist would be choosing the best food for you.
Evidently a previous survey which asked a whopping 4 questions, overwhelmed most who responded by presenting them with too much to think about.
So to appease those who complained that that previous survey was “too pretentious” I’ve cut the number of questions in half this time.
To make it even easier still, I’m not even calling it a survey this time. Instead, it’s a Poll…
So have at it! Bon appétit
