142. Livestock

Cannibalism has lost its luster in the post-singularity world. Human meat is as easily acquired as any other type, at least if you'll settle for vat-grown. Once the interest in the taboo wanes, however, most prefer the carefully engineered meats; no reason to settle for human when impeccable veal is cheaper. Still, there are always fetishists and connoisseurs.

Among those who maintain a romantic attitude towards cannibalism, vat-grown simply won't do. The very best meat is free-range. This doesn't mean they wan't to be murderers, however, and to this end a group of well-to-do cannibals crowd-funded a new morph, the livestock model.

Livestock are designed, and born, to be eaten. Some sleeve their livestock with simple AIs, capable of carrying out dietary plans and exercise regimens. Criminal outfits use tasped slaves, as relaxation leads to a higher quality product. Livestock are also a not-uncommon choice of morph for infugees, as some patrons will subsidize the cost of the morph in exchange for the rights to it in a few years.

  1. This is genius! What a great way to have a morph that's a bio alternative to the case but with an innovative twist.
