If something that looks like food is made of PVC, it’s safe to assume you shouldn’t be eating it. <a href=”http://www.scmp.com/news/china/policies-politics/article/2057071/artificial-food-intended-display-only-say-chinese”>Not the case in China</a>:
<blockquote>Manufactured food meant for display only, say Chinese makers, after Nigeria confiscates tons of fake rice. Lagos customs leader Haruna Mamudu told the <a href=”http://www.bbc.com/news”>BBC</a> the fake rice was smuggled to be sold at markets during the festive season. It was not clear where the bags that are seized came from,
“Only God knows what would have happened if the product was eaten by people, ” he was quoted as saying.
China created almost all the man-made rice on the planet, according to manufacturers.
“They shouldn’t place it on the cooker. It’sn’t food,” Zhou said.
In <a href=”http://www.africareview.com/news/Plastic-rice-seized-in-Nigeria/979180-3494366-format-xhtml-cjpnqz/index.html”>Africa</a>, the cost would improve due to shipping and other costs.
He said the Chinese government had no regulation on the trading of manufactured food made to prevent accidents.
Other man-made food products contain noodles, sushi, pizza and cakes. The more real they look, the higher their price.
The products are shipped throughout the world including Hong Kong, America, Africa and Europe.</blockquote>

In completely unrelated news, we’ve noticed that one of the sites we’ve had our eye on for the past few months, which was known as “The Revit Library”, now redirects to misobim.com. The site seems to be focusing on offering <a href=”http://misobim.com”>revit templates and revit families</a>, but still through a tutorial/classroom/learn as you have time-type system. The launch counter is down to less than 2 weeks, but whether they will hit the proposed launch date or not remains to be seen. These launch dates put out by a lot of sites seem to slip more-often than not, much like most Kickstarter projects we’ve been a part of in the past. (Those things never seem to ship when they are supposed to.)
