Deveyn: endlessmonkeys: oh for the love of.. what the fark is WRONG with you people.

They aren't the type to go after people. They're hard to catch and most islands you don't see them because they're so tasty, so the locals eat them. If you want to find them, you look for coconut palms with holes at the base and then smoke them out.

This is a good size for eating, but if they're lucky, they can get up to six feet across and live a couple centuries.

Since you seem to know a bit about 'em... How is their flavor characteristic different? Are they sweeter? Also, are the very large ones tougher/chewier at all?

The meat is sweet and has a hint of coconut to it. The sauce you get from the abdomen is better than garlic butter. We mixed it with rice and curry and it was pretty good but too much and you end up with the shiats.

Runny-butt aside, I'm intrigued. I like crab ok, but I've never liked it as much as most - especially here on the West Coast. I think I'd like to make it very spicy!

And better than garlic-butter you say? I'm in complete disbelief. I haven't seen a bottle of crab gut sauce...

You never will. It's got a shelf-life of about an hour.

It's damn tasty and doesn't taste fishy at all. The only way to try it is to go to one of these places and get it yourself.

No, no. Joan of Arc discovered Curium.

Yeah... I think you meant Unobtainium.

You're all wrong. It was Deborah of Dallas that overthrew the French, ate their cake, and then went down on the Germans in the attic. Joan, of course, got kicked off the ark for complaining about the zebras, as she was a well known racist. And Curie cured the finest cheeses in Europe, hence the name Madam Curie.

Nope, you're thinking of Mary Magdalene.

You're right. I had her confused with Mary Tyler Moore, the inventor of the steam engine.

No, Mary Tyler Moore was executed by Elizabeth the First for attempted assassination.

No, no, that was Marie de Medici, the last Empress of Japan,.

Wayne Green, a magazine publisher still living in Littleton, NH, claimed that his father was part of the ground crew for the Amelia Earhart flight, knew it was a spy mission and knew that she landed on an island. And he's been making that claim since the 60s AFAIK.

If there are any FARKers near him, you could ask him.

Ethiopia has received billions in foreign aid, primarily from the U.S., over the past several decades. Although this aid was cut off for a while in the 80's because their warlord leaders wouldn't stop having civil wars. During that time the only aid they got was vast cargo ships full of food from the U.S. instead of wads of cash.

The money spigot is turned back on now, along with more vast cargo ships of food, but investigations show that a lot of it simply gets diverted by the government and various "rebel" factions to buy weapons and feed soldiers.

At some point you just have to sit back and realize there's not much you can do without going in, overthrowing their government, and staying around for a century or two to teach them how to live like civilized people. European nations already tried that with a few African countries, and a lot of people had a problem with that too. Shrug.

So we are sort of hamstrung when trying to help such backward nations. It's pretty clear their government is a source of most of their problems. But we can't get rid of their government because that's a no no. I suppose we could continue to send them pallets of money and barges full of food, but to be honest, nobody thinks that's doing much good, and may actually be contributing to their problems.

I've heard that argument and basically agree for no-strings-attached aid. Why isn't aid that is a tad more intelligent possible - something like binding the amount of aid we deliver to the first derivative of the median standard of living.

Or even tie personal enrichment of the current dictator-in-chief to the first derivative of the median standard of living. Yes, I mean flat out giving the d.i.c money. Probably in secret and maybe also include a handful of the other opposition warlords (or whatever the proper terminology is) in the gravy chain. All of sudden the warlords/dictators have a financial incentive to make their country a better place to live.
