Ah fer cryin' out loud!  Can the current-fad-crowd get any more ridiculous?!  Are they going to want "farm-raised", organic bugs now?

When I had my motorcycle, I ate more than my share of bugs. I didn't find ANY of them tasty.

I would have to say an angry hornet in my earhole ranks up there too.

Libiots can eat all those they want too!

Reminds me of my USAF Survival training.  First day out the instructor kicks over a huge stump, searches around the loose dirt for a second and comes up with 2 huge grubs (1-2 inches long and about 1/5 inch around)  pops 1 in his mouth and bites down, bug juice squirting from his lips and he says "Mmmm, these babies will keep you alive for weeks, anyone want the other one?".  2 guys (Zoomie fighter jocks) puked their breakfast up immediately.

And you know where the term snake-eater came from too, right?

Just happened to see this thread.  Did you have to partake of this "other, other, other white meat" during your training?  I've seen wilderness survival videos that show how to strip an edible layer from the trunk of a pine tree.  I'm thinking I would eat every pine tree before I got desperate enough for bugs.

We were not forced to eat bugs but it was expected.  I did not.  On the second day of field training a couple of us cornered a deer and were about to have venison for dinner when the instructor ordered us to set it free.  We only complied when he told us that that evening after we completed our orienteering exercise the destination had 20 lbs of steak that would be that nights dinner and the next days training on how to make jerky.

Don't see many cats or dogs either for some reason...

PS-I too would pass on bugs as long as possible!

There is a lady in the prepper community named Marjory Wildcraft.
She eats bugs.
Her idea is to learn about them before she has to in order to survive in the event of a total collapse
