wantingout: like it or not, insects are the protein of the future. for the 99% anyway.


Yeah, the 99% of the planet. It's what they deserve really. Slackers!

icam: I bought one of those chocolate and cayenne bars made with crickets the other day. It was pretty good.


The Chapul bars aren't bad. I prefer the ginger/lime/coconut one myself.

Insects and other bugs are just crustaceans that happen live on land. It's the fact that they don't grow as big as the ones that live underwater (or plants and land-based vertebrates) that causes humans to regard them as a poor source of nutrition. Other primate species, who have yet to develop the technology of drinking beer in the off-season and hauling up lobster traps during the on-season, eat land-based crustaceans all the time. Anyone for sweet potatoes with asparagus, banana, apple, and brussels sprouts?

dennysgod: So the people who cringe at the thought of eating cooked bugs have no problem eating partial cook animal flesh with blood still dripping from it and eat chicken embryos, sometimes partial cooked and runny.


Your username makes that so much better.

Nah.  We'll do lab-grown meat before we start eating insects.
Honestly I think that, when we get really good at it, lab-grown meat could be even better than the real thing since we could tailor the amounts and types of fats and tissues in it to our own preferences.

You know what looks a bit like bugs/larvae/eggs but isn't and has lots of protein?

Well, nobody actually eats chicken embryos or bloody meat anyway. Maybe you should consider that you don't know what the words "blood" or "embryo" mean. Or else your hyperbole ran away with you and you should feel bad.

But I don't like runny eggs or very rare meat. Or bugs. So there.

Bleeding, gutting and quartering a cow is a serious gd mess once you've got it done. It's not even a little bit delightful and the smell of cow guts takes a long time to put out of your mind.

I've done chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, goats, sheep and deer. Plucking chickens was filthy and tedious, especially since I did some of them kosher which meant plucking them in ferfewksake cold water. Other than that it was pretty straightforward. Hard work, but not that hard. Dirty but not terrible. Would do cow except that I don't have a hoist.

Yes. That is exactly correct. Yes.

Properly prepared beef is bloody as hell. And It's delicious.

I have a feeling that if many people were given a choice of catching bugs, cooking them and eating them versus dressing a cow, pig, or the like, cooking it and eating it... there would be a lot more bug eaters.

If you think large food animals are nasty at the death end of their lifespan, you should try being there for the start of it. You really haven't suffered until you are up to your elbows in a ewe trying to turn a lamb's head around for a difficult birth.

/ has also slaughtered. Will take that, please.

I've done that multiple times... turning a breech with cattle. That's a disturbingly icky smell and a seemingly endless supply of goop.  I have kept show sheep way back in the day, but never helped birth any.

"Bloody rare" is a figure of speech. Even if it's raw, it's not bloody.

Fark you. I'm not going to eat bugs.
