^ The whole "food pill" thing is just part of the old concepts of the future that people always had around the 30's and 40's. They all thought we'd be flying around in bubble topped cars, with cities on stilts, wearing silver jumpsuits, eating pills instead of food, searchlights waving around for no reason, that type of Jetsons-inspired crap.
Looking back, it's funny people actually thought that. Why would people give up eating regular food? Apart from nutritional requirements, people eat food because it tastes good. Why would that not be the case in the 23rd or 24th centuries?
And it just reminded me: In all of the Jetsons episodes, did we ever actually see the surface of the ground?
