Ms Christ and I ate a 10 course meal the other night and the best
part was that we got to have a little conversation in between each
course, so my normal shark-frenzy eating style was interrupted in a
I was thinking that this is what slow food is supposed to be all about
time I tried slow food I got pissed off at the company and
ended up binge eating a bag of Fritos in frustration and protest and
then hating myself and the whole experience.
What I need is some technological mediation, so like say for instance
You order a 10 course meal (tapas) from Amazon and they send a
stream of drones, one arriving every 10 minutes, and there you have
a two hour meal with drinks and desert, and an education in slow
living, a break for your binge eating habit, and a new cool tech
Of course the cheap version could be done With a timer and a

||If the drones could cook it while they were flying, so
much the better.
||[JesusHChrist] it's good to have you back!
||+ and drones are as popular as gluten isn't.
||Methanol for fuel-cell and cooking. Easier to store than H2.
||And before anyone asks, cooking food by heating it as
it re-enters the atmosphere from space is not easy
||[hippo] that what-if was evidently plagiarised from the HB's own Re-entry Fried Chicken [link]. It also misses the point, it should be travelling at orbital velocity when released, not just dropped from a height.
||Just use some sufficiently inefficient motors and pipe
enough waste heat with a waste gate operated under a
feedback control loop?
||The thing XKCD is missing is the pod specified in "Re-entry
Fried Chicken" which makes me think it wasn't actually
||Based on the research for XKCD, it sounds like orbital
velocity isn't actually required. Now people have talked
about trying to use a canon to launch things into orbit,
but that's basically a fool's errand. However, if we used a
very high power cannon that failed to launch something
to the edge of space, it might be powerful enough to
deliver objects over a large metro area. If the pod is
designed to capture the extreme heat from air
compression and deliver it to the payload at a controlled
rate, then deploy a remote controlled steerable
parachute to allow precise non-destructive landing on
your outdoor patio just as the cooking is complete, I think
we might have a solution.
||What [whatrock] said. Plus, Mindfulness Eating. Go to a silent
Zen Retreat for 4-10 days, eat as the Buddhist Monks do. You
control the pace of your meal, and it literally feels like days
between each bite. Plus you are starving from the little, tiny
last meal you had prior, that took forever to eat, sandwiched
in between two hours of non-stop meditating.
||Mindfulness Eating. Same result, I think. Sans conversation.
