One solution to the corn shortage (and perhaps a more productive use of capital than an investment in Facebook): 3D steaks. Peter Thiel's Breakout Labs has made an investment in Modern Meadow which aims to bypass livestock by combining regenerative medicine with 3D printing to create edible meat.

    if by tortured you mean real then yes...

     

    I don't however agree with the torture of animals regardless of what the situation is. Quick/painless then medium rare please, sweet potato fries and green beans.

    This fits with Thiel's push for seasteading. He's going to need such capability to maintain sustenance in such an ecosystem. I'd also recommend he invest in using such technology to create defense weaponry, which he'll also need to ward off pirates.

    They could sell devices cheaply, then make the profits by selling replacement meat-jet cartridges.
