non-renewable foods

Post by Secro » 15 Feb 2010, 22:27

are there any foods that are non-renewable?

this is a tricky question that i have been thinking about the last 5 mins.

animals/plants u can just grow again i guess, but there must be something that can't grow and you can eat it it.....

maybe?

while you can't live off it, you do need some salt.

If you get right into it, it will be hard to mass produce milk and cheese without electricity once it all runs out... I guess that's all I can really think of :P

There's enough Thorium, Uranium and Plutonium in Queensland alone to power the entire planet for several million years, hopefully we'll have evolved beyond the need for cheese by then :P

Or possibly the cows will have out evolved us and enslaved us as our masters.

The only problem I had with Wirt in D2 was you couldn't cut off the good leg..

We had milk and cheese waaay before electricity.

It's unlikely we could could mass produce _anything_ without electricity.

Basically, as soon as the lights go off...it's all over as far as current civilsation goes. The only question is how long. Generally the response is hours, not even days.

Unlikely. I've seen figures as low as 70years of Uranium if we consume it at current rates of consumption. Thorium on the other hand will go further.

Millions of years is a bit extreme. Hundreds maybe, assuming no growth.

Solar thermal ftw.

what about planes? They would be made from mostly non renewable stuff and you can eat them:

ROFL just reading that site
In 1981 he was attacked and stabbed, receiving severe life threatening internal injuries. He underwent major surgery and recovered surprisingly quickly. Three weeks later he ate a robot.
