And I was all like 'Oh yeah?' and Mortious was all like:
Or eating bugs. Mention that in the title and he's all over it.
Funny you should mention that. A local college is letting a group I belong host classes on campus and use its resources, focusing on teaching entrepreneurs (today is the final class . Though there's one more session on the 9th with a practice pitch in front of angels/vcs).
The college/group threw together a get together with another university to see who had the better startups (hosted at the other local college).
One of those entries was this (third place) and I actually really want to try their stuff.
We make healthy, sustainable, and delicious foods from insects.

Drysart spewed forth this undeniable truth:
That really sounds like something you wouldn't want to headline in your customer-facing materials. I don't know that even the tree-huggiest of the tree-huggers start salivating at the idea of eating insects.
Would you seriously not try one? Maybe "trying weird shit" is a Boston thing (well, that and brewing your own beer).
I mean hell, last month I had chicken hearts for the first time and barnacles the month before that. diadem fucked around with this message on 12-02-2013 at 12:37 PM.

They're just squeamish about that initial crunch and think it'll taste hideous. It's all about the prep. Would you eat a raw prawn with its shell on and brains/eyes/legs still attached? You're a bit weird if you do.
Enjoy your prawnrickets!
What unusual animals you all have eaten anyway?

Delphi Aegis came out of the closet to say:
And the occasional controller-bashed mouse.
I have uncanny aim in the most surprising and arbitrary ways.
When I was younger, my family lived in a house next to a golf course, and one winter when there was snow and ice everywhere, me and a couple friends wandered out on the course to play and do things kids do. I found a golf ball and we ended up on one of the greens and we noticed the hole was iced over. I was wondering whether it was solid ice or if it was just filled with water with a thin layer of ice on top, so I threw the golf ball down at the hole as hard as I could.
It hit the hole, hit the (solid) ice, and rebounded straight backward and hit me square in the center of the forehead and knocked my dumb ass out.
It was at that moment that I acquired my rodent-slaying powers. Drysart fucked around with this message on 12-05-2013 at 01:17 AM.
