Former NASA engineer. Current SEselsr and friend of science.
Answers to some common questions:
1) I studied Mechanical Engineering in School. I did my undergrad at BYU and Masters at USC.
2) I worked for NASA JPL for 9 years, 7 of which were working on the Curiosity Rover (I made a video about it you should def totes watch cause it's probably my favorite of all my videos). I founded a company called Digital Dudz on my nights and weekends while working at NASA (also made some videos about that) and sold it to the guys who make Morphsuits in the UK. As part of the sale I quit my job at NASA and worked for them coming up with all their new costume ideas for 2 years. Recently, I was presented with an opportunity to return to my Engineering roots to come do some ideation type of work for a tech company near San Francisco.

    I had an impossible burger. I knew on the first bite that it didn't taste the same as real meat. It wasn't bad, it just didn't taste the same as meat and I knew it immediately.

    The thing is, we have the choice to eat meat, eggs and dairy from factory farms or we can choose to buy from farms who raise their animals out of doors on pasture. We should only be consuming animals who are eating what God intended them to eat. Cattle were not meant to eat grain. They are ruminants and should be eating grass. Chickens should be free roaming to eat grasses and bugs, etc. Pigs eat whatever and like to root. Free roaming out of doors. Make the choice to purchase from farmers who raise the animals in this way. The more we patronize these small local farms, the more availability there will be.

    We had the beyond meat at my work a couple months ago (Tim Hortons) and we had sausage patties, and burgers. In my experience though they tasted disgusting, smelled terrible, and even the texture was very wrong, but after watching this im wondering if its just the way it was prepared? I really want to try this again but at home with a barbecued burger

    but if we don’t eat meat won’t that mean that that there are more cows which means more cow farts

    1. Dexis

      Well if farmers aren’t selling as much meat they will have tons of unsold stock due to dropped demand, and as a result won’t breed as many cows since they can’t sell that much. Though in the very short term yes, you are correct

    Why glitter and fart spray?😱 The whole work only for glitter and fart spray? You should have used paint that isn't removable (without any sound effects in advance to warn them). To stain their clothes, furnitures, the floor and everything else that's close to the package. These people deserve at least the same financial loss as the people they are stealing from!

    Bruh moment. I love how the biggest almond commerce is in California and farmers push bee's to their limits so they can get more almonds for vegans to have their milk. The bee's that get past their limits die. If the bee's vanish then humanity will have 2 years left. Good Job vegans.

      Did you call the veggie burger a puppy? But to answer your question, it tastes good, its not good for you and not good for the environment (unless you compare it to factory farming which we shouldnt support)

  54. BeVeJe

    Could there have been a different outcome if the sharks hadn't checked the cow blood out first, and discovered that there only were a surfboard. And the they didn't want to visit the human blood becuase they new there would only be a surfboard.

    I love Mark. I’ve been a meat eater my entire life and, much like Mark, I grew up thinking a meal without meat isn’t a meal at all. However, this video has genuinely made me want to try the Impossible burger. Additionally, it’s made me more aware of the alternatives if I’d like to get the same nutrients.

  64. Ethan Johnson

    Although yes, plants consumed by animals is a higher percentage than plants consumed by people, you also have to include the factors of human capabilities to consume these plants. Many of the plants used for animals are either not high enough quality, or the human body just can't convert the calories inside of them as efficiently as animals. If you were to take that amount of land used to produce animal food taking the percentage of it which is safe and certifiable for human consumption, would it still be worth the statistic?

    60% religious returned the wallets. That is a majority. "Being religious had nothing to do with it", typical athiests.

    Incorrect. Women outnumber men and the fact that men had over 10% return rate speaks volumes.

  83. Zband

    I don't call 12.00 per pound a friction-less transition. I'm all for a better alternative to meat. However when you look at the price of this stuff in the store in comparison to a package of burger, I simply cannot see people wanting to pick this over a package of ground beef when you need to eat. Ground beef you get WAY MORE food. Now unless things have changed... I found an analysis saying that the average retail price for Beyond Meat burgers is $12 per pound, compared to $4 per pound for regular beef patties. If the price drops far enough so that it is affordable I'm all for it.

    1. K_ Den_Night

      Well with more demand. also factory farming gets tax subsidies to help the cost go down in truth it would be more per pound. if we did that for plants and not factory farming then it would go down in price a lot more.

    2. Dexis

      Yeah if you can’t afford it then don’t feel guilty for not wanting to buy it, this video is aimed more at people who have plenty of money to spare where the cost really means nothing to them. And as he said the more of these people adopt it the further price will go down as production is scaled up and becomes more efficient. But yeah, the price is currently a bit too steep for me and a lot of others.

    The problem is that plant protein is innefective so you need to eat meat at least once a week.

      Propaganda used by the meat industry to sell more meat.

    It is IMPOSSIBLE for a peanut butter sandwich to be equal in both calories and protein to a hamburger. Sorry, this is just an epic fail.

    1. Dexis

      Not the whole hamburger, just the patty, though it would probably be a pretty decent slathering of peanut butter
