I’m still frowning and repulsed by what I saw in this video.
Despite being the designated bug and spider killer in our house, I am terrified of the things. There is just no way spiders should look or move like that – especially the fast ones
So you can imagine my horror as I watched the video below. If I was between a rock and a hard place, and there was no other choice … and if someone else prepared the items … I would still probably starve to death. Try as I may, it’s still difficult to imagine the circumstances where defanging, cooking, and feasting on spiders and scorpions would be my best option.
I remember reading something, somewhere, years ago that suggested that if/when the world runs out of food … there will be more than enough bugs to eat, since they outnumber humans so heavily.
