    Curiosity.

    And you dont have to worry about Ants from the Wild having Bacteria and Things like that, they are for the most part VERY clean. Theirs ants in Britain, that use that yellow sticky stuff off of tree's, once it has dried, to keep the colony clean. They collect tons of it and set it at the entrances an through out the nest. Cleaning any bacteria and microbes that might be living on them! It is a organic sanatizer, helps keep them clean. Let alone them being super clean as it is! Theirs the occasional Parasitic fungi but thats usualy in the HEART of the rainforest.. But Im sure these people know what they are doing.

    It just seems like... something i would do.

    That is why I try to stay away from anything but organic (and I am an ovolacto vegetarian). I blech about too much that people eat... although the bugs deserve a couple extra heheheh
    Too bad you eat 'em in your sleep. The average person eats 4 spiders a year that way.

    Beleive it or not, insects are one of the better sources of nutrition if you can get past your cultural aversion to the idea. And that's all it is - your aversion is a LEARNED BEHAVIOUR, nothing more.

    Insects allow you to absorb roughly twice as many nutrients as most other foods. They just break down and digest more easily.

    Hahaha I CANT hahhaha Haven't you ever stepped on them on the sidewalk and all that goo comes out? I think of that and just wanna vomit. and I am scared to death of spiders so that pretty much eliminates me ever shoving one of them in my mouth (while awake anyway). Heck, when I read that on the snapple lid I couldn't sleep. I wanted a painters mask!!!! hahaha
