I know!

How does one collect secretions from a beavers anal glands anyway?

I imagine the beavers aren't alive when someone's squeezing their butts, unlike when your vet is evacuating your dog's anal glands.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Hmmm...I was guessing that first you establish a bond with the beaver...

Riders ask "How?" Horsemen ask "Why?"

The first ingredient in spam (I think is was spam) read as this:

"Partially defatted fatty tissue"

.... Huh?

I personally feel a lot better when I take part in slaughtering the animal or picking the food I'm about to eat. I don't get wigged out by "weird" foods, what really wigs me out is all the chemicals, preservatives, and processing of most foods available.

And ya wonder why such a high percentage of the population is getting allergies, and weird illnesses, obesity, cancer, etc etc... How many people that you know can bonafidely say "I feel good and healthy"?

I listen to the radio all the time and a month ago there was a trucker calling in to report about the highway conditions. The radio personalities asked him what he was hauling. He said"tandem tanks" didn't really want to say. They asked what and he astonished us all with "pig's blood". Yup that's right 2 liquid tank trailers of pigs blood. Used for mainly cosmetic purposes. Such as foundations,lipsticks and cold creams and more. I guess the term waste not want not comes to mind. I'm a meat eater -i hunt-raise cattle and have horses and other pets. I think that we should use as much of an animal we killed as possible but I also think that it is our duty and obligation to give each animal a good well taken care of life and a quick clean death.

Who came up with some of this stuff anyway...
I've eaten one of those suckers with a cricket in it. Had to close my eyes but it didn't taste bad.

I've had blood pudding too. Most parts of an animal are edible.

I had some "native" food while I was in South Africa-Springbok tar tar and some sort of fried ant. The Springbok was good...the ants? Not so much LOL

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

I come from a Scandinavian background. Nothing is wasted and Scandis can eat things that would make your nose hairs curl... I've been around it and well exposed to it, as well as many other "delicacies" from my travels... doen't mean I'm always a fan though.

My issues is that I would like to see people be more knowledgable in where their food comes from... where ever that may be.....meat or not.

I travel in some pretty unusual places and have, no doubt, eaten things I have no idea about.

I love street food and, when walking through markets get to see such things as.....

roasted bats



I've also seen roasted dogs, rat on a stick, bazaar sea creatures, chopped monkey etc.

Every culture has its own use of foods. Personally, I would rather have every bit of an animal used so that they are not wasted in their death.
