    Not disagreeing with the insanity of the UNs proposal, just pointing out that there is no point in attempting to prove an insane hypothetical.

    It is still the whole "Dodge the problem rather than solve it" with world hunger.

    Just grind it up and make "insect flour". Add this tasteless powder to foods for extra protein value and voila. It's no big deal, I would eat it.

    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.
    This a thousand times. And I bet America throws away 10 times that much per year.

    On topic: yeah, I would eat insects.....

    ....when every fatass politician will donate their extra meal per day to starving population until they lose weight up to the point they can be called "fit". And when they will turn their golf courses into arable land for...you know, FOOD.

    UN, fucking hypocrites. They should be the ones to try bugs for a change. Hell, they should be force-fed some.

    I wouldn't have any problems with it. A lot of candy seemingly have stuff in them that comes from insects, doesn't mean I'm disgusted by that.

    I think it was Hugo Chavez that turned his golf courses in Venezuela to low income housing or something like that. I was quite pleased to hear it, golf is a waste of space & time.

    Isn't that already a fairly common cut anyways?

    I would rather they culled the human population in some way. It's irresponsible to let our requirements be supported by yet another species of creature.

    However, it makes sense. Insects constitute a large amount of biomass. I think the entire Ant species has a larger biomass than humanity?

    I'd rather live off fruits and vegetables then insects becoming the cornerstone of my diet. But then unless something radiaclly changes in the world I don't think I ever have to stop with my meat-diet. Eventually we'll just be able to grow meat, we already know how to do it in a lab. We just have to crank that up to industrial scale and then we can all enjoy our red meat until we have a heartattack or whatever it is you get these days from it.

    That's good honestly.

    I am subbed to Bill Gates on Facebook so I think I should see this update soon.

    That is nonsense. A locust and a lobster are far more different than a dog and a cow for example, and yet these are certainly seen as different from a culinary perspective too. Not all mammals are the same, not all arthropods are the same.

    Don't know if I can stomach eating insects.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    The worst part I'd think would be the first one. After that, I'd imagine you'd get used to it.

    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...

    Grind down some insects into some flour or vitamin pill, that'd work. Your move UN.
