Talking Bugs - Now a delicacy!

I admit, I would like to at least try some of that stuff Even though some of it may appeal very bizarre and disgusting to me.

Hey, where do you think the idea for teylu came from? It's just our culture that makes eating bugs a taboo.

The Dreamer's Manifesto

Mike Malloy, a voice of reason in a world gone mad.

"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." - Inception

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off." - Tyler Durden

Yeah, supposedly they are very efficient to produce as well. Humans have eaten them throughout most of history, it's just most people these days don't to the point of not thinking you can, or not wanting to try it, due to negative associations.

They should start stocking Teylu.

I raise mealworms to feed to my geckos, and they seem to like them.

Sometimes I wonder if they taste any good; most lizards seem to gobble them down pretty fast.
Modern technology owes ecology an apology.

Never had bugs although I wouldn't mind trying them. I heard (or read) that gram for gram they contain a lot more protein than meat does. I'm not sure why people can't bare to eat bugs but they can eat something like a cow, are they not all animals? At least creepy crawlies would be easier to chew and swallow
