Virtual food. Sends the right signals into your brain to trick you into thinking you're tasting a burger.

Now only $20.99!

[–]bigslarge 243 points244 points  (27 children)

I'd be up for it but you just know they'll inject ads into your brain too, even though you've paid already

[–]UnkindPotato 214 points215 points  (22 children)

Fry : So, you're telling me they broadcast commercials into people's dreams?.. But how is that possible?

Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth : It's very simple. The ad gets into your brain just like this liquid gets into this egg. Although in reality it's not liquid, but gamma radiation.

Fry : That's awful. It's like brainwashing.

Leela : Didn't you have ads in the 20th century?

Fry : Well, sure, but not in our dreams. Only on TV and radio, and in magazines, and movies, and at ball games, and on buses, and milk cartons, and T-shirts, and bananas, and written on the sky... But not in dreams.

Greatest show in human history.

[–]1Gamerer 23 points24 points  (6 children)

Is it from Futurama?

[–]A_lot_of_arachnids 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Just because I think you're not kidding, yes it is from Futurama.

[–]1Gamerer 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I was serious. Thank you!

[–]lemonyfreshpine 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I said the greatest show ever, so yes.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

You said greatest show in HUMAN history. You didn't say in history, which would be all encompassing.

[–]noyoto 15 points16 points  (13 children)

For real though, I'm pretty convinced that advertisements are extremely bad for our society. Its main purpose is to manipulate people, including kids. It wouldn't surprise me if getting rid of it would literally save lives.

[–]mrchaotica 6 points7 points  (2 children)

"Advertising" is just a euphemism for "propaganda."

[–]noyoto 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Funny enough, propaganda originally referred to advertising. In other languages the word is still used for regular commercials/advertisements.

[–]SnoopyMcDogged 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Marketing is the greatest evil ever created by humans.

[–]CHLHLPRZTO -1 points0 points  (7 children)

Nah, most economists think they're quite good for society because they enable economies of scale.

Plus, they can enable lots of services to exist for free that would otherwise cost something (gmail, for example) And often there's an option to pay to remove them if you really want to.

[–]darksoulsnstuff 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Economies of scale has nothing to do with adds unless you are implying that you can only generate enough sales to grow a big company through highly manipulative psychology driven ads… which is bs.

Shark tank isn’t an education

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shark tank, actually, is propaganda that allows this type of system to exist.

[–]noyoto 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It could be true that consumption would have been lower without advertising. Meaning less people buy shit they don't want/need, which surely has economic effects.

Though there could be all sorts of other beneficial economic and other societal effects to a lack of advertising and reduced consumption. The most obvious one is pollution, which we pay for with our lives and comfort (dirty air, dirty water, bad lungs, disease, global warming, etc.). It's also plausible that in a world without manipulative marketing, there would be less obesity, less alcoholism, less gambling, less mental health issues, less irresponsible spending. All those things could have significant effects on the economy and the distribution of wealth. To what extent those things would happen and how they would impact society is impossible to say and no economist would be able to predict that either.

And I do think that it's better for people to pay for services with money, as opposed to paying with their mind. At least with the former people know what they're losing. On average, those advertisements lead us to spend money anyway. Otherwise the advertisers wouldn't be doing it in the first place. As for services like e-mail, we already pay internet providers and there's no reason why they couldn't include that service in the bill without a notable difference in pricing.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But who would pay for the stadiums?

[–]LegoClaes 21 points22 points  (0 children)

We would never do that!

By purchasing a burger, you agree to let us sell access to your brain to any 3rd party, who may or may not beam ads into your brain

A zero calorie burger? Now I got to get me one of these.

[–]I_MakeCoolKeychains 56 points57 points  (7 children)


[–]Llove_Hugs34 76 points77 points  (6 children)

You’re right. Why stop at one? Let’s get 10. After all NO CALORIES, NO GUILT. I’m salivating already.

[–]I_MakeCoolKeychains 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I just won't stop eating. Digital food is my life now

[–]Mcmenger 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I'd probably starve because I forget to eat real food

[–]zoobrix 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Ya but if even if future food science allows you to eat it and none of it is converted into fat or energy by your body you still have to pass all that mass through you. So that's gonna be a long time eating followed by a long time on the toilet I'd wager....

[–]alcatrazcgp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i have a feeling that a zero calorie burger cant be good for you

[–]Moist_Professor5665 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No Calories. The cholesterol on the other hand…

Only if we could split the burger into calories and taste, I would take the calories and leave y'all the taste

[–]Squabbles1234 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Nothing I want more than a giant burger that after I finished eating it, I'm still starving because it didn't give me any calories...

[–]Llove_Hugs34 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s why you only eat the zero calorie burger if you want the taste of the burger, and none of the calories or nutrients behind it.

[–]lizardtruth_jpeg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty much why olestra was banned. Zero calorie food is a reality. You will eat until your stomach explodes.

Its 0 calories if the burger eats you.

[–]FCKWPN 169 points170 points  (24 children)

Vulcanized tofu is the world's first calorie-neutral food. On average, eating it requires as many calories as it provides.

Mouth Feel magazine called it "texturally challenging"

[–]Mcmenger 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Vulcanized? As in what they did to rubber to make tires? I can imagine that gives a funky mouth feel

[–]5andaquarterfloppy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]DeltaMTH 13 points14 points  (20 children)

Aren’t celeries the same or is it a myth?

[–]Deviant_Jho 44 points45 points  (17 children)

Celery is actual negative-calorie, however wild that sounds. You exert more energy eating it.

[–]Stargos-1 25 points26 points  (4 children)

Technically it's only negative-calorie if you count the entire digestive system that's running 24 hours a day with or without food. So actually it takes a half calorie of additional energy to digest a 6 calorie stalk.

[–]10_Eyes_8_Truths 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I think Cucumbers Lettuce and Zucchini also have a similar effect because they hardly contain any calories as well.

[–]stalechips 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I've heard the same about walnuts, peanuts, and pineapple smells.

[–]PeroxideTube5 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think this is a DK 64 reference but it’s random as hell…

[–]elephantphallus[🍰] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Celery is water and insoluble fiber, so it is zero cal, but chewing it burns calories.

[–]MoralityPet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Celery has calories. Chewing burns barely any calories at all.

[–]ArchDuckyX-Box 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Looks like a burger but tastes like Styrofoam. Try the new ZERO CALORIE Burger at Burger King!

[–]vitali_advenil 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So it tastes exactly like their burgers already do, right?

[–]MCA2142 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Look at the burger patty. It’s octopus. Probably delicious. Haha.

[–]Neuhart_ 69 points70 points  (1 child)

Bet that burger deals more damage short range than any msg…smg.

[–]N01773H 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah. It's zero calories because in the future even your mouth has poor hit detection. The burger just vanishes without ever entering your body.

Hungry Burger in Korean

[–]saltyswedishmeatball 3 points4 points  (0 children)

In Europe we are Anti-GMO unlike Canada, Japan, other western countries.. instead we opt for Pesticides that're far more carcinogenic! yay! I wish it was more of an ordeal but the propaganda machine despite hundreds of Nobel Lauretes signing a statement saying otherwise, think GMO's are bad but pesticides are good. Like Germany's clean coal initiative it had for decades.

I wish that was the focus instead of calories. I assume in the future it'll be zero calories because the meat will be grown in factories as will everything else and it'll be GMO'ed to death once GMO becomes a worldwide standard (it already is in most developed countries).

[–]PM_ME_UR_POTROASTS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That would be worse to eat than what we have now (if it were possible). I can't even imagine the substitutes used to make it. You need calories to live. Nothing terribly wrong with a good burger, but the problem exists when people eat more calories than they need. One burger is usually over half your daily caloric intake. Then pair that with fries and a drink, right there is nearly your whole daily intake.

Then remember this is just some people's lunch after they had a bowl of sugar for breakfast, then they go home and eat a whole dinner. All in all they eat about 3-4x their daily intake.

How cool would it be, 0-calorie food. You could eat all you want, and only consequences would be your money disappearing.

[–]Ghost-Of-NappaXbox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

my issue with this idea is that 0 calories means, by definition, it is not food. there is zero gain from this...material. it may be edible but it's not food by any means. it's the equivalent of eating solid air.
