    Future?   Heck, I've been eating them for years.  Just ride a bicycle down a hill with your mouth open ...  Bon appétit.

    No it is supposed to be plant based.

    I could be but I don't want to starve the birds out of existence.

    It is what the World Econmic Forum thinks we should eat.  Sorry birds.

    I guess we could make bird stew with the insects, kill 'em off at an even pace. Throw in some variety of veggies too, 'course.

    Sure, I hear many are quite tasty and extremely high in protein.

    I saw a couple of food documentaries and did a bit of research. It is quite common in many cultures.

    Yes, I have seen some of those as well. I am still not interested in trying them.

    I have inadvertently inhaled a fly or three. Witchetty grubs (larvae of the bogong moth) are delicious cooked. Some folks, mostly native Australians, prefer them raw, but I have always broiled them over a camp-fire on the rare occasions I've eaten them.
