    I have heard, in Bangladesh, someone from Kolkata is setting up a Viagra knock off factory. May be Chagur's idea will come to pass.

    I think we should march around with signs reading "Let the tigers keep their genitals!"

    The insect larvae selected for this noble sacrifice are usually from among those associated with agave (maguey) plants and are typically lepidopteran borers within these succulents. A common offering is the maguey worm, Aegiale hesperiaris 4 (Megathymidae, Lepidoptera). Also represented have been Agathymus spp. (Megathymidae), species of another genus of obligate, agave-feeding giant skippers. Recently, Steven Passoa and Julian P. Donahue (personal communication) each independently discovered that a kind of larva often found in tequila is the caterpillar of an agave-boring carpenter moth, Comadia redtenbacheri (Cossidae). In Mexico, these larvae are known variously as gusanos rojos (or rosados) del maguey, gusanitos del mezcal, or chilocuiles. Weevil grubs (Curculionidae, Coleoptera) have also been found, especially in "miniatures." (Note: We thank J. P. Donahue, David K. Faulkner and John W. Brown for information about the insect "fauna" of tequila and mescal.)

    Actual ingestion of the larvae seems to be rare, especially in Mexico. "Norteamericanos" apparently eat the larvae only sporadically, usually after having consumed the other contents of the bottle (apparently a necessary prerequisite) and/or having become involved in some rite of passage that requires a touch of machismo (or feminismo, as the case may be), as was portrayed in the movie Urban Cowboy. [Note: Are Urban Cowboy and Poltergeist II the only commercial movies that depict deliberate entomophagy?]

    Following is a brief list of insects that are commonly used as alternative food sources in different parts of the world. Bon appetit. . .but for the squeamish, BEWARE! As a whole, insects are extremely high in protein and contain all the necessary amino acids to make them nutritional and nourishing. Many insects are consumed as pupae (when they are newly hatched and wormlike). However, a great many are eaten when they are in full adult form and they look exactly as if they could fly or crawl around on the dinner plate. Some cultures do eat live termites and ants.

    Don't you think plants have feelings and alive just like us? Well, how could you be a vegetarian? Plants don't make noise when you eat them doesn't make them less alive. Where is your love? Or you still think "out of sight, out of mind"?


    To relate to the topic: I know some people like to eat fried cockroaches.

    Somebody once asked me if I would eat their shit. I would classify this as a weird fruit/food, even though I didn't take him/her/it up on the offer.

    Plants do not have feelings like us, because they don't have a brain to generate them. They are alive however , and so are we and to stay that way we must eat. So eating them is more compassionate and loving than killing animals. The plants we also recycle by eating them, by pooping out the seeds new plants will grow. If you kill a cow and eat it, a new cow will not grow up in its place.
    Plants have a very different consciousness, it is very cellular and not emotional like ours.
    I get this argument all the time, so its no news that people grasp for straws to justify their barbary.

    Chagur, could that be the best idea you've ever had?!

    This action is classified as a fetish, so I don't think it would be considered a food. It falls under the realm of Sado/Masochism. NASTY, NASTY, NASTY!!!

The way animals are treated in the meat industry is utterly cruel and disgusting and an embarrasment for humanity. I don't care what the Bible sais, killing animals is murder.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Is it murder when a wolf or similar carnivore kills an animal? All they eat is meat. They need it to survive. Is this murder? Monkeys are omnivores like us. They will kill animals for food. Is this murder? I think not. And is death by gun better than death by sharp teeth ripping you throat out? I think so, yes. I'm not a big meat-eater, but I have a steak or bacon every now and then. It's half of what our body is designed to eat. Why not do so? I do agree, however, that the way we treat the animals we raise for food is inhumane.

    No offense ment, Beb. Stay cool,

    You are thinking? Animals do not have higher functions of the brain to shape the world. We do. When we were in caves, may be we did not have a choice. But we do now. Our higher functions of the brain defines the future of mankind.

    Slaughtering animals is barbaric, incompassionate and animal-like. If you want to stay at animal level, please dont ask from your fellow animals stuff like compassion, empathy, love, sacrifice, patriotism, etc. etc.

    It is like smoking...kick the habit....

    We do have a choice - animals do not....

    Humans, by nature, are what you call animal-like. I ask no mercy from animals. I fully expect to be mauled by some animal, at some point in my life. That is how the strong survive. Species come & species go. Extinction is inevitable for all species.

    It is not like smoking. I am a reformed smoker. Tobacco is an addiction, not a choice. Eating charred animal flesh is a choice, not an addiction. I crave tobacco, daily, it is the toughest battle of my life. I gave up tobacco 9 years ago, it is still a struggle. I once gave up animal flesh, for an entire year, NO PROBLEM, with that. I started eating animal flesh again by my own choice.

    Yes we do have a choice, I don't care whether animals have a choice or not!

    I am CARNIVORE, hear me ROAR!!!

    So ratbat, you chose to be less than you are capable of? You chose not to care instead of caring? You keep roaring and you will attract your own kind. But that's your choice. Have a great time among the other cave men.

    How do you know, km? Have you ever been an animal? All creatures with brains can make their own decisions. It's just they're more focused on survival. ratbat is right in one aspect. We are animal-like. I too expect that if I am attacked by a carnivore, it will try its best to take me down. Think about this: if you got deposited in the woods with no clothes or tools, and had to fight for your own survival, would you eat a squirrel if you could? Probably yes. You would be too gad damned starving to care about that little squirrel!!! That's a fact of life. Eat or be eaten. Ethics and morality go out the window when it comes to your own survival. If we weren't animals, we would actively kill ourselves to reduce population and make room for the other creatures on our planet. If you really care that much about animals, go shoot yourself.

    *phew* No offense meant to anyone by this post.

    kmguru ...

    Why, with their 'higher functions', are people incapable of accepting
    the obvious: Unless a life form is capable of photosynthesis, to survive
    is to kill! Even at that, many plants still 'kill' (ex. pitcher plants).

    Get off the PC BS.

    Take care
