I remember being utterly grossed out for an entire month during the Nematode and Trematode sections of Invertebrate Zoology.

Everything is prey to something. The kind ones kill you first. These little bastards let their babies slowly eat you alive.

Blech, pork worms.  This is why I don't eat pork.  Except bacon, which I cook the shiat out of.

Cook temp only has to hit about 140F to kill parasites, you really have to undercook pork (like still bleeding and cold undercooked) to have any issues.

I'm betting Mr. Gonzalez prepared his own pork.   Or got to close to the fecal part.

The poster I replied to likes to ruin his bacon by overcooking it, that's what I was commenting on.

Chewy bacon is best sent back to the kitchen. Bacon should immediately break down on contact with my taste buds and seamlessly integrate with my body and soul in a satori-like fusion of my life with the universe around me.

Nope, sorry, this is like overcooked steak to me -- just a crime against good meat.  If I wanted meat to turn into dust in my mouth I'd blow Trump.  Proper bacon should be cooked just long enough that the fat takes on more of the consistency of the meat and just melts in your mouth while the meat retains a nice firm yet yielding bite, giving you enough chew to savour all that bacony goodness, but not so much that it's bouncy and bubble-gummy.  Crispy at small ends or around the edges is fine, but the majority must be good and meaty.  That is bacon perfection.

Heretic! Although I really do have to agree about overcooked beef. Unless it's corned beef or stewing beef, I like it cooked just enough to keep it from screaming when I stick my fork in.

We can agree on the steak -- mostly.  I'm a medium rare guy.  I like it cooked enough on the outside to get that lovely Maillard crust and penetrate just a bit beneath the surface.  The majority though still needs to be pink to bright red in the center.  A dab of HP sauce (Canada and the UK's version of A1, and superior if you ask me) and I'm a happy carnivore.

But the bacon -- we will have to agree to disagree.  MEATY BACON 4 LYFE!

I'm led to believe this guy didn't eat it raw, instead touched his face while handling raw meat.  People can be really forgetful of such precautions when their hands are the most disgusting.
