His dissatisfaction after all that effort is so gratifying. Not because I don't like his mission, or ethics, or whatever, but how good could a sandwich that you put that much effort into taste? Maybe 30% better, tops?
If you're starving, you tack an extra 50% on, no problem.
Oh, and his whole project and effort was pretty interesting too.
The best sandwiches I ever had were about 33 cents. Free day old bread that they threw out from the sandwich shop at the end of the night, a housemate that worked at a cheese place who brought home cheese from work all the time.. all I paid for was a 79 cent can of marinara sauce that would last about 3 loaves. That's all I ate for a year in college.

I think more people would benefit from knowing the amount of effort and resources that go into putting food on their plates.
But don't ride a cow. The cow's life sucks enough without you clambering onto its back.
ACtually for most of their lives cos are doing pretty well, it's just the last stage when they get rounded up and sent to the factory farms that's really bad. It's literally every other organism living in their grazing range (humans included) that is really suffering because of them, because they're filthy, inbred half-animals that poison everything they touch by shitting on it.

"6 months of my life for 'not bad'."
Dose that not just describe life as a whole?!

I enjoy cooking enough that I'd like to try each of these processes myself, actually.

I know a guy who made a sweater this way. Back in the 80s he decided he wanted to make a sweater from scratch for real, so he got some sheep, slowly taught himself to spin, and last I heard he hasn't even used electricity for at least 25 years.

00 dollars for that. Somewhere along the line, gross incompetence had to play a major role.
Hope is included his travel expenses, because otherwise that was terribly planned and executed.
It's also important to note that "Sandwich" wasn't really a word as we know it until the 18th century or so, when world trade was pretty much a thing so you wouldn't have to dick around the globe on shit like this.

It's not really from scratch. He did not build any of his tools himself. The water he used for the crops was presumably from municipal sources; the land he used to plant them on was land that he didn't originally homestead. At numerous points during the video, he travels in vehicles like cars and airplanes, vehicles which he did not design himself, vehicles running on fossil fuels that he did not drill for, or later, process into a usable form.
What he does is jump through a conveniently chosen number of hoops, just enough to make a vague, snarky point, but not enough to actually see his real mission through.
Typical half-assed millennial hipster.

They probably still greentexted him with Costanza just to be assholes.
