You have 1 minute to name LITERALLY ONE (1) argument against eating bugs that can't also be applied to eating meat or seafood.

I'm convinced with very little effort, most fast food protein could be converted to some formulation made out of bugs that would duplicate the smell, texture and flavor of the meat. However, the megacorporate meat industry would bury it just like the petroleum industry did electric cars in the 70's.

>he doesn’t eat bugs

>> No.13092705

Its not cost effective, almost every place I've gone to around the world that sells bugs they're more expensive than typical meats. Beyond that, the protein inside them isn't always bio available, so you're not getting the full nutritional value from them. Beyond that, the exoskeletons have the same texture as popcorn and have a tendency to get stuck in your teeth, so even when you find bugs that taste pretty good when prepared properly, they're a fucking pain to eat.

Never mind the fact that worms and most smaller bugs trigger an aversion in westerners due to them being associated with rot, which is an evolutionary trait that would be very hard to overcome. Bugs on/in food = food spoiled = eat it and get sick or die, as far as our programming is concerned.

Last but not least, I don't appreciate the politics around it. Not even the liberal vs conservative, I'm just really tired of the modern loser looking at something any other culture does and immediately exclaiming "YES! THIS IS THE FUTURE! WE FOUND AN ABORIGINAL TRIBE THAT ONLY SLEEPS 5 HOURS A DAY - CLEARLY ALL HUMANS ONLY NEED 5 HOURS OF SLEEP, THIS IS FACT! NO MORE SLEEPING!". It's retarded.

>> No.13092706

You seem awfully agitated, buddy. Got bullied a lot in school today, junior? I remember being 16 and acting like a tough guy on the internet... good times, heh.

Seriously, though, you seem incapable of the most basic of reasoning.
>Humans are naturally repulsed by bugs
>Ergo it would be natural for them not to consume them
Whether or not you wanted to make that argument, it was still the argument you made. Being "naturally repulsed" by something is for weak faggots like you, anyways. "Um well it's instincts!!!" is LITERALLY npc-tier thinking, imagine being nothing more than a lowly animal, a subhuman ape, who can't even imagine having any sort of autonomy...

This is because it's not actually about creating sustainability (a meaningless word without serious discussions of nuclear power and curbing 3rd world population growth). Instead, it's about humiliation. Guess who isnt allowed to eat bugs because of their religious prohibitions?

I know OP is a trolling faggot, but I've been to some very impoverished places in West Africa and South Asia, the kinds of places you think of when you think of bug-eating culture, and I'll share my own personal insight.

The only people eating bugs in those places are A) jungle-dwellers B) people who have literally nothing else to eat C) White, first-worlders.

The fried insect carts that you see in media aren't serving that filth to the locals, they're serving it to tourists stupid enough to pay for it. Literally dumping clods of bugs and dirt they've found on the side of the road into dirty used oil. Locals don't eat it because it's repulsive. Hope this cleared up a few things.
