 I took my Grandma to one of those fancy spas where the little Garra Rufa fish give you a pedicure by eating your dead skin. It was much cheaper than having a funeral.

Some people have started to talk about being "touch deprived," or starved for human touch.

There's a solution to that...

A well cooked chicken skin is just awesome.  It always creeps me out a bit though.   Then I have some more.

I eat plenty of skin. It's called autophagia. Nothing like a good ol chunk of skin to satisfy those cravings....

Uh, that's uh, not what I was expecting. Hmmm.

More proof that humans ain't nothing but mammals.

Independently of doing it like they do on the animal channel.

Poor little monkeys just need some touch.

This is one of the good sides of having kids. When I have them, we can have hugs. Hugs are nice.

What I crave now is face to face adult human contact. And moving more. Reasons to leave my house, to not spend so much of my day at my desk working, but actually purposefully go somewhere for a reason, and move around.

Yes I know that I can jsut get up and move around, and even, like, go for a walk or whatever, but the part you need to understand is that I am incredibly lazy, undisciplined, and unmotivated. Normal life at least provides some structural motivation to have to get up and go places.

I miss normal life.

From the way a Mexican friend says it, pork rinds are to chicharrones the way Pringles are to Kettle chips. I'd love to give the real thing a shot, you can keep that other stuff...

That will certainly be one of the new pick up lines once dating starts up again. "I'm skin starved. It's a serious condition that only you can relieve."

From TFA: "Feelings of hopelessness, stress, anger and low motivation" are all common.

Yep. That sure sounds like most married guys I know.

Chicarron is pork belly almost like....imagine pork rinds with a bit of bacon attached.

it starts with this piece of meat:

score the skin pretty deep so the fat can render properly, sear it off, then fry it in oil.  The results are heavenly.

Okay.

Well, after this thread I never want to see a naked creature ever again. Furries have the right idea.
