Most domesticated animals bred for human consumption also have a secondary use of equal importance. Like milk from cows and eggs from chickens and wool from sheep and so on. But I can't think of anything offhand that swine can provide aside from meat. What will happen to pigs when we don't need them for meat any longer? My point is that some animals now have a vast population due to humans breeding them in vast populations. When we perfect lab grown bacon (Me: It'll never happen.) we won't need so many pigs anymore? What would swine populations look like ten or twenty years into the future if, and that's a big if, we do manage to perfect lab grown bacon. Would we need pigs any longer. Oh and how about turkeys too? I forgot all about them!
And don't get any ideas, I am not eating any bugs. I don't care if they are formed into bacon. (Well maybe I'll try a tiny piece just to see...)
TIL that Richard Karn, the actor who played Al on Home Improvement, heard about the role after receiving a traffic citation, going to traffic school and sitting beside an agent who told him about a casting session for the show.
