This is some serious future sh*t!
What if we told you that a scientist was able to grow a "beef" patty in a lab that was actually edible and didn't taste awful?
Would U try one??
Well, it's a real thing, and it's called 'schmeat.' It may sound like we just made that up but it's a real protein, grown in a lab from stem cells.
Mark Post, a vascular biologist at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, created the mad scientist burger.
It originally cost about $385,000 to produce, but now, it could get down to about $9 per patty.

So that's in the "gourmet" burger price range but c'mon, it's kinda a world's first!
They grew this meat in a lab!! So we gotta ask:
Would U eat a lab-grown "burger?"
- Sorry– haven't– finished– barfing… (25%)
- No. No way. Get that away from me (45%)
- For $9? Sure I'd try it (30%)

We never thought we'd be saying this sentence, but the world of deodorant as you know it is about to change FOREVER!!!
Are you tired of spraying layers and layers of deodorant on your pits, JUST to have them start stinking again as soon as you work up a sweat??
Well those days are LONG gone as a team of researchers from Queen's University Ionic Liquid Laboratories (QUILL) has come up with a new "perfume" that actually smells BETTER when you start sweating!
Now we know there are probably some of you out there who are thinking this is impossible, but it's actually fairly simple!

The team of researchers created what they call "pro-fragrance ionic liquid with stable hemiacetal motifs," which is essentially an odorless liquid that emits a nice fragrance when it comes into contact with water!
Except in this case the water is your sweat…. Who knew science was so gross???
The researchers are still looking to team up with a perfume development company to get the ball rolling, so it might be a while before you see this on the shelves at CVS!
But the real questions is, do YOU think you would use a deodorant that only starts to smell good when you work up a sweat? Sound off in the comments below!
