Valter: Rapmaster2000: Meh. Sure, bugs are totally grody, but it's better than the high density feed lot where your delicious steak is literally covered in shiat just before slaughter.

Ribeye is 6.99/lb at Publix today.  I'll be having that tonight.

Honestly while I like animals in general, I think that most animals are kind of stinky and gross and I don't want to be anywhere near them. That goes for human animals as well.

So while what I think of as "bugs" may ick me out a little because they are annoying (how the F did that giant-ass cricket get into our office) when they are processed into a food object nobody is really going to make the connection.

Straight up eating bugs unprocessed tho? Hard no. Yes it's a cultural thing. Yes I believe they deserved to die and I hope they burn in heck.


I once ate stir fried mealworms at a bug themed fair by the etymology department at Purdue.   They were clearly mealworms and somewhat crunchy.  Pretty good actually.  I'd eat them again.

No foodstuff grosses me out though.  I eat everything.  Even Papa John's.

Somehow an expansion to Decatur IL. Does not surprise me.

Nothing good comes from there including my Dads family.

You will live in the pods and eat the bugs.

The elites will live on the massive estates and eat the waygu.  Just as the Lord has deemed it.

Get your ass to the hive cities and start grinding resources for the elites.  If you are lucky you might be a pleasure slave for the elites.  If you are unlucky you will be a pleasure hole for the elites.

If every other ad during the football game was Arby's we got the bugs! People would be falling over themselves to buy it.

Meat is the most marketed product in existence

Klom Dark: Northern: Some Junkie Cosmonaut: Northern: Some Junkie Cosmonaut: As long as they're sea bugs, ok then.  Land bugs are of course just gross

/cultural conditioning etc. sure
//but knowing I'm eating bugs would squick me farking sideways
///shrug

Can someone explain why bugs?   Not lentils?
Lobsters and crabs don't require heavily managed agriculture.
They are also more or less boil and eat.  Bugs then need to be substantially processed into nutraloaf.

I'd imagine because bugs would require almost zero management other than keeping them confined, which in a determined industrial situation wouldn't be that hard.  They don't cost anything, you can scoop 'em up by the shiatload, no real upkeep just throw some food scrap trash down there now and again, they reproduce at redonkulous rates.  It would have some advantages

/still just as squicked mind you
//redonkulous is actually in the spell checker?
///you're weird AC

Right,
Bugs require the right nutrients, like fresh grass.  What "scraps" would be fed into a factory bug farm?
Then once scooped they would need to be crushed and fed into a homogenizer, then some additional processing (flavoring/spices), before being sold to the public.
So it would be more labor/energy intensive than processed lentils (and blends).

You know the difference between a lentil and a chickpea?


More curious if you know the difference between a garbanzo bean and a chickpea.
