I just finished a bag of MICROWAVE PORK RINDS, and although I enjoyed them very much, it just dawned on me that this was the most disgusting and nutritionally deficient thing I've ever eaten. What will they think of next? I have a stomach ache, I have to go. Can you get any worse?

WELL........take a look at this web site:


Strange Things I Have Eaten by Phil Johnson
http://www.gty.org/~phil/page2.htm

It has things like this:

"Swine Mixture"

"Consisting of Marmite, honey and sardines in a toasted sandwich.

Marmite is a powerful yeast extract—extremely pungent, some would say bitter. Honey, of course, is sweet. And sardines are—well, fishy. All those flavors waging war on one's palate is a curious sensation."

or this:

"Cricket Lick-It"

"A lollipop with a real cricket ('the other green meat') inside. "

and don't miss the "Scorpion Bites" (very sweet according to Phil)

------

Bon Appetit!

I have a friend who ate a scorpion. He said it tasted like shrimp, which makes a certain amount of sense.

I once dated a girl whose stage performance consisted of (among other things), eating earthworms, mealworms and glass.

That after-show kiss was an interesting experience everytime!

Flavour? What flavour?

Chocolate covered bees and/or ants are an interesting snack. They look sort of like chocolate peanut clusters. I gave my wife one with bees to eat at a party and did not tell her what it was until afterwards. To you newly married men out there. This is not a smart move.

And remember, it is most likely because our ancestors ate meat, that we evolved to become what we are now.

If everyone stops eating meat, the human race will stop evolving.

When in Thailand there were live birds in a cage. You could choose your bird and they would deep fry it for you.

I decided to pass and have a deep fried Grasshopper instead!!

Philemon,
I'll take that as a joke since I know you're Buddhist. Smile Smile

The word "vegetarian" goes way back in American culture. It is actually a translation from a Sioux Indian word that means, "Bad Hunter"...

Since when does being a practicing Buddhist automatically make one a vegetarian?

Philemon,
It just depends on how extreme a Buddhist you are, but it tends to be consistant with their philosophy. I was mostly joking though, as most Americans that become Buddhist don't adopt that aspect. At least most of the Buddhists I know.

I was raised a vegetarian. I know, very odd here in Texas.

I asked my Buddhist teacher about this, and his reply was that Buddha never said anything forbidding the eating of meat.

The only thing that wouldn't be allowed, is to have an animal killed specifically on your behalf.

I do recognize that many Buddhists are also vegetarian/vegan, but that's not a particular aspect that I've adopted.

Besides, do you know how many animals are killed in the farming of vegetable crops?

Philimon,
Of course I know how many animals are killed in the farming of vegetable crops, that's not the point. I wasn't really trying to make any point anyway. I'm not even arguing vegetarianism. I was brought up that way and there's no telling whether or not I'd be one if I hadn't been. I even stated that it was tongue in cheek joke.

As for Buddhism, the opinions are highly varied as there are a great many branches of Buddhism now. As you said, Buddha never said anything about it and I believe he even ate meat himself. Not eating meat can easily be derived from Buddhist philosophy however (though it can go either way depending on how you wish to take it). This is why many are vegetarian, and that is what I was refering to.
