So we can call it Crappy Honey but we can't describe it as crappy?

When an aphid bites into the sap-carrying tube of a plant, it'd be a bit like you or me biting into a fire hose. There is so much pressure, it forces the contents of the aphid's digestion system out its posterior.

I'm picturing an aphid with a VERY surprised look on its face.  And I can't stop snickering like a ten-year-old.

The first time I saw a housefly take a shiat was when we were at my grampa's house in Lemon Grove. I was something like 8 years old. I was reading the cereal box at breakfast one morning like I always did and a goddamn bluebottle housefly came down and sat on top of the box and a little pointy thing came out of his ass and pooped out a little black speck. So I I sez to myself, I sez, "goddamn, that fly just took a shiat on my cereal box."

Really, I did.

I wonder if bio-degradable plastics are getting into the honey bee life cycle. It might help explain why they are dying off. The thing about bio-degradable plastic is, it tends to break up into tiny pieces. At least that was the objection to it.

Herding isn't a purely human thing, it's not even something we invented. Bugs have been herding each other for a while and yet it's usually listed as a purely human activity. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herding and  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pastoralism for example.) Much like tool use there are actually a few animals smart enough.

Fark like a Barsoomian: it's not even something we invented


Uh actually we don't know that. I should've said it's not something we invented first. Independent invention - or not - are both possible.

Honestly I don't see how we'll ever figure it out one way or the other. Did we watch bugs feeding each other and then licking each others' butt dew, and then decide to suck off a ladycow's multitude of ladydongs? Did we just think of this ourselves?

/did we try the bull first?

Not to be too reductionist, but I'm guessing we saw animals nursing like people and when someone got really hungry they gave it a try. We think of wild cattle as being afraid of humans, but they're much bigger than we are and we used to be a lot less scary. I don't see any reason why we would have invented pointy sticks before we started nursing from cows. So why not make friends and live in symbiosis? We do with dogs, which are much more able to defend themselves from us (pack hunting skills ftw).

I'm kinda surprised we haven't invented milkable dogs. Why breed different species for different purposes? Someone missed out on a great opportunity by not breeding giant dogs that could be ridden like horses and milked like cows.

Maybe milk from carnivores and omnivores takes like shiat? Or perhaps it tastes like whatever they are eating and a grass eater seemed the most neutral at final taste? I really couldn't say, maybe someone can weigh in on how goat milk tastes and if any particular diets change its taste.

And as for wild "cattle" I leave Wangiss this...

Holly: Nothing wrong with dog's milk. Full of goodness, full of vitamins, full of marrowbone jelly. Lasts longer than any other milk, dog's milk.
Lister: Why?
Holly: No bugger'll drink it. Plus of course the advantage of dog's milk is that when it goes off, it tastes exactly the same as when it's fresh.

I'm with you. We control every aspect of a dog's diet and I'm perfectly sure that, at least with modern technology, we can do something to make the flavor awesome.

ReverendJynxed: And as for wild "cattle" I leave Wangiss this...


Man: Hey, wild horse. You look awesome. I think we should be friends.
Horse: Well, I'm a horse and you're not. What's your deal? Can you run? Do you even speak horse?
Man: Idunno, I was just thinking maybe we could hang out. I like horses.
Horse: I don't even know what that would entail. You're going to have to be more specific.
Man: Here's my hand.
Horse: What the fark. What do you want me to do with that? I only use my mouth for biting.
Man: Here.
Horse: Okay.

Goat milk tastes goaty. And yeah anything the milking creature eats will come out in the milk. That's why you can't let them eat too much wild onion or the wrong things from your kitchen scraps.

Now that you mention it I'm sure meat-eater milk tastes horrifying.

But yeah goats can carry things and milk. Horses, camels, reindeer, oxen can be pack animals and can be ridden and people do milk them. I'm sure there's more I can't think of.

I wonder if all camelids are the same - llamas, alpacas, vicunas.
