My god Sean, did you read all the detail that was with this...like...

Insects are the food of the future; they are a good source of nutrition, high in protien, low in fat and contain calcium and iron.

Many species of insects are lower in fat, higher in protein, and have a better feed to meat ratio than beef, lamb, pork, or chicken.

Insects are tasty. Really! Even if you are too squeamish to have them as a main dish, you can blend them up in a blender and add them to your favourite dish for a protien boost.

Still think I will give it a miss... :D

Well if you have ever eaten at the 20 baht fast food shops and stalls - probability is that you already have eaten them without knowing.!

About 2 weeks ago I was busy munching khow phat (from the fast food shop) whilst sat in front of my pc - not paying much attention, when I glanced at the spoonful of rice just an inch from entering my mouth - there amonst the rice was a very black - very cooked, cockroach. somehow I seemed to lose my apetite :(

While I read this on the web (and we all know how truthful & reliable that is)

The average human will eat 8 spiders while asleep in their lifetime

So I guess you are right... :D

Not too surprising Paul :-& I always remember my 1st early morning food experience with som tam at KF Lee's in Nong Khai, had my 1st fork full, then low and behold a small army of ants appeared underneath, I pointed it out to the cook and she said "good for you, make you stlong", ah well, guess how often i went back for 2nd's :?

I agree Sean :D I have always tried to make a point of not eating in any place where my food could eat my food quicker than I could... :yikes:

Sorry Dave, I guess that you don't want me to tell you about the site that actually said it was 4 a year then?? I always wondered how I could wake up heavier than when I went to sleep - well that is my excuse for the diet failing... :)

You would be surprised at the percent of non food items allowed in process food. That will be bugs, rats, etc.

Makes me want to go out a buy a can of spam. Yum Yum :P

It's usually better not to ask "whats this" I have found. If the Mrs. gives me something I like I leave it at that. The spider thing still creeps me out. You wake up wondering why you have that dirty, hairy tongue feeling in the morning. :lol:
