What is: Soylent Green?

I don't know why, but the phrase "Soylent Green" has been running through my head for the past few days. Just pops ito my head for no reason, crashes into my current train of thought, and disappears. Then I'm left wondering "What the hell was that?!". It's like a hit and run or something. So I decided to see what I could find about this word Soylent.

  • It's a movie. Don't know anything about it other than it's a sci-fi movie about an overcrowded earth where people eat something called Soylent in various colours. Apparently the shocker is what Soylent Green is made from.
  • It's also a drink, no doubt fashioned to resemble something consumed in the movie.

  • A vegan, health food oriented co-op in Chicago
