Some quotes from: https://edition.cnn.com/2019/04/30/busin......F9T4enpA

"Interest in Impossible Foods' plant-based meat alternative is growing so much that the company is struggling to keep up, the company said Tuesday. The acknowledgment comes just after the company expanded its partnership with Burger King."

"In a statement, Impossible said that it "recognizes the inconvenience that this shortage is causing and sincerely apologizes to all customers, particularly those who have come to depend on the additional foot traffic and revenue that the Impossible Burger has generated."

"Impossible added that it is not facing a shortage of the ingredients it uses to make the plant-based meat. "We are facing short-term ramp-up challenges resulting from demand greatly outstripping supply," it said.

To keep up with demand, Impossible is increasing the number of hours its Oakland, California, plant is open. It's also hiring for a planned third shift. And it is installing a second production line that the company says "should double current capacity."

"Until the shortage is resolved, Impossible is encouraging its fans to call ahead to see if their restaurant has the meat in stock."

If it's not meat, why do they call it meat?

I wonder if in the hula hoop manufacturers in the late '50s issued similar press releases.

Because "meat" is not synonymous with "flesh", at least it wasn't until about a hundred years ago with the rise of the factory farm and all their lobbying and advertising money. Your belief system is the result of their propaganda.

One hundred years is enough to establish a word's meaning, isn't it?

And meat was used as a synonym for flesh much longer ago than only 100 years.

Furthermore, I'm quite certain that your claim was not the company's thinking when they decided to call it meat.

Long enough to change the public's perception of it's meaning. Your belief that "meat" is something that comes only from animals is a lie, it is just not true.

As is your belief that you're not an animal.

As is your belief that whales and dolphins aren't mammals.

So they don't really think that it's meat, but JoeJoe does.

Evidently they know more about this than JoeJoe.

According to Merriam Webster, the first use of the word "meat" was in the twelfth-century and listed it's first definition as "food, especially solid food as distinguished from drink".

Interesting, but, as usual, not on point.

What are you talking about, you just told me meat has to come from animals by it's definition ... that is a lie, I just showed you that. The word "meat" was first used to mean "food", the most significant portion of what you eat is the meat of your diet.

But the factory farm gave your government who knows how much money to buy their product and give it to you and tell you it is the only meat there is - and that you must eat it to be healthy.

It is a lie. It is not true.

"give it to you" meaning your "school lunch". We were taught to eat meat by previous generations.

I've heard schools in California are now offering students vegan options, so things are going to change.

I told you no such thing.

I did say that one definition of meat is animal flesh. You said that it's meant that for only 100 years. But your citation didn't say anything about when it was first used to mean animal flesh, so it's not on point.

As usual.

Only because you conveniently chose to omit all other definitions of the word.

By the way, if you don't like me using the word meat to mean animal flesh, you have only yourself to blame: in the title of this thread, you used it to mean animal flesh:

Every meat eater wants to be a vegan and I can prove it to you

You're the one who established the working definition of meat for these threads, and that definition is animal flesh.

But I don't go by strict dictionary word use like you do ... I think everyone here understands that when I say "meat eater" they know I am referring to people that eat animal meat.

You however, for whatever reason, insist on using the dictionary to say I am wrong ... please stop, Seriously - I am not here to play word games, please stop wasting my time, glad we had that conversation and even even more glad that is is now over, thank you very much. Smile

Of course you don't.

You use it to mean one thing when you want it to and another when you want it to, but God forbid that someone else try to do the same.

It's pathetic.

What exactly if your beef with me?? What word did I change the meaning of that you disagree with?? And in what way does that make "you right and me wrong"??
