    Also how common they are where I live and how much they remind me of spiders, bugs etc. I haven't encountered a wild lobster or a crayfish in my life and if they were more common than spiders and wasps for example, then I would probably change my view on lobsters and crayfish.

    Oooooooorrrrrrrrr..... we could let people find cheaper and faster ways of producing food instead of banning every attempt that pops up. Or outright burning tons of crops in order to keep the price of food high for farmers, which has happened in the US before (looking at you FDR!).

    My God, what a horrible creation. People seeing what they want? Thank God they tried to shy away from that. I know it pisses me off when I'm in an heroic raid, yet in the back of my head all I can think is 'some casual player is playing a heroic dungeon and not wiping.' -Vodkarn

    It's a misnomer that when it comes to world hunger, there isn't enough food. In reality, there's more than enough food for everyone (be it naturally grown or artificially synthesized). The food is just not being properly distributed. Wanna fight world hunger, UN? Make sure the food actually goes to the people and not just dump it on a truck with a UN sticker on it and hope marauders won't attack it.

    The bill gates foundation is currently funding a project where crickets are ground and then added to peanut butter to increase the protein content.

    Very disappointing at a young age to hear that the "acceptable quantity of mouse shit in grain" is actually a number above zero.
    Think of it as food supplements lol
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    Why not just import edible insects to nations that are already struggling with starvation?

    because importing costs money, the goal is to be able to source local food where maybe not that much meat/grains can be grown, maybe you can get enough bugs to eat that you can support the population.

    No point in attempting to prove an unrealistic hypothetical.

    You know, cats and dogs are also made of meat. We don't seem to be showing any remorse for killing other animals for food.
    Moreover, those highly regarded "western" countries usually throw a big portion of their food (both at the consumer end and the retailer end). I have seen it firsthand in Denmark, but I am pretty sure they are not alone in that habit.

    If you want to solve the world's food problems, you first have to start seeing food for what it is - a FINITE resource that you shouldn't throw away unless it is spoiled/unsafe to eat.

    One way or another someone will be importing food one way or the other, the lack of arable land means there will likely be a lack of insects as well.
