  1. The owner of this company goes around it the wrong way. Comes of as off, but I think this can easily replace the fast food and junk food that people eat every day. I tend to eat a lot of fast food during my lunch, but this can easily replace fast food, and when we do have time to cook we can. You just cut out the fast food.

  2. It is not crazy at all, I think this guy is really on to something. A lot of people (myself included) see eating as a chore. That being said, I still enjoy eating good food but just imagine all of time you wouldn't be wasting sitting in a restaurant or drive thru or cooking at home. If you have a busy day, this would be super convenient and better than any kind of snack or fast food. There's huge upsides for this

    The liquid that people being tube fed "eat"……

    Also I am pretty sure you can get lose of muscle control when not swallowing real food for so long.

  4. you people only see very small picture of your developed countries where people eat steak and spend millions on their foods and their clothes. in my country every second someone dies of starvation. if soylent goes widespread and cheaper, it will definitely stop people from starving. is it not a human right to not starve? is it not unethical or selfish of you as a person to criticize something just because it does seem "good enough" to you?
