    "Wang Fuming kneels down and pulls out one of the nests. Unaccustomed to the light, the roaches scurry about, a few heading straight up his arm toward his short-sleeve shirt."

    Sounds like something that they'd deep fry at the Texas State Fair, no?

    1.3 billion people on a strip of land the size of the eastern seaboard.

    That's a ****load of people man.

    This article gave me the itches, but I was reading another article about a professor promoting eating insects for protein since it was the most efficient way of harvesting it while keeping the needs of 7+ billion people. It's quicker than raising some plants and the only barrier is a cultural aversion and its symbolic linkage to uncleanliness and destitution.

    Article makes a ton of sense. Amazing what an effect our perception has on stuff. Fundamentally, there's nothing wrong with eating a cockroach and maybe in the far future, people will eat insects and roaches without batting an eyelash. But I get all squirmish at the thought of eating one or even at the idea that there are farms with thousands of these things all over the place.

    Roaches don't really bother me. In general, anything that doesn't bite or sting doesn't really get me worked up.

    Maybe I should start a roach farm in Houston.

    Indeed, maybe I should buy the Astrodome from the city and turn it into the world's largest roach farm. Yes. Yes, I think I will.

    Mandarin is too difficult. Give the Germans another run at taking over the world. I believe I could actually learn German if I tired.

    You should always try it first before saying no to something.

    this is the exception.
