Actually, I've eaten my share of bugs, just not purposely. Having ridden two wheeled vehicles for most of my life, and at least half of the time, without any kind of face shield, I've inadvertantly opened my mouth at the wrong time and swallowed a bug or two. It's never a good thing and you end up gasping, choking, and trying to spit it out, all at the same time. Once, just once, I was, again as a young child, talked into eating roasted nightcrawlers. That was possibly the most horrid tasting thing I have ever tasted.

Would I purposely eat bugs? If I were in a place where other people were cooking and eating them, I would probably give it a go. i'm pretty adventurous, and tend to respond intellectually rather than emotionally. Yuck-factor is usually an emotional response. But dont' try to get me to eat anything slimy. It just aint gonna happen. Can't get past the emotional factor on that issue.
