Somebody already beat you to it. A few years ago this guy invented a drink that was designed to cover all of one's nutritional needs. It's called Soylent. I've never tried it, but apparently it is an acquired taste. From Wikipedia

" Rhinehart used to view food as a time-consuming hassle and had resolved to treat it as an engineering problem. He blended the ingredients with water and consumed only this drink for the next thirty days. Over the course of the next two months, he adjusted the proportions of the ingredients to counter various health issues and further refined the formula."

I think it comes in a powder so you'll still need your blender

Showering? I only shower once a week now, cat baths in between! I never thought the day would come when showering would seem to be a chore!

Shaving? Once a week too!
Cat bath ? ? ? So you lick yourself clean?

Same here. I had been considering giving up reading the Retirement Forum due to all of the off-topic, somewhat ridiculous (for this particular forum) threads that have been popping up more and more frequently, but I have resisted the urge because there are still many quality threads. However, I think this is the thread that has finally convinced me it's time to move on.

Or at least to take a break.

I'm even thinking of doing it with other food I labor over, getting it down the hatch. Just blend it instead!

I still have good teeth, but why does it take so long to get it down the hatch?
Clearly you were desperate to post something today.

Unfortunately, this is the one forum where any thread title that pops into someone's mind no matter how unrelated and silly it is, doesn't faze the moderator to remove it.
I follow it because I'm getting close to retirement and there are some really good relevant threads but they have become fewer and fewer.

You live in hot southern AR and shower once a week?
Feeling cool refreshing water is a hardship???

I thought you meant tobacco dip....

You go right ahead and drink your meals. It's fine with me. ()

I don't see any reason for a moderator to remove a silly thread like this. I just paid attention to the name of the OP and filed it away in memory. I guess some people should be happy online posting is anonymous.

Keep in mind the op posted in the economic forum a complaint about credit scores when he got turned down. He was upset when he didn’t return some cable equipment and his score took a hit. He didn’t feel that was fair. He also said he relied on astrology on picking tenants and said I was lazy for not researching the validity of astrology.
Kind of a strange bird overall.
