Let's face it the world is an imperfect place and yes we have bugs and critters everywhere. However, when it comes to the food we eat and those bugs we don't want the two to mix. Unfortunately it happens and it can be horrifying when it happens.
So much research is going on right now using bugs as substitute food source. They are high in protein, and other much needed nutrients. The cost to breed them is minimal. Many countries already have bugs in their cuisine, so why wouldn't it be OK to look at insects as a food source.
Continuing our unofficial "Stop Being Afraid of Insects" series, here are 16 pictures of ladybugs. Granted, most people aren't afraid of ladybugs, but they've probably never seen that video of a ladybug taking off in super-slow motion. Or had a house infested with them. They can be pretty disturbing when they're part of a throbbing ladybug mass. But not like this. This is adorable.
This would be one of my worst nightmares come trues. Imagine yourself traveling on public transportation, a bus, when out of nowhere hundreds of these nasty creatures start crawling all over you and the walls. That is exactly what happened to unsuspected riders in New York. You would think this was some kind of practical joke but it wasn't. Shiver time.
Eating a big ol’ juicy bug is one of those things a guy’s gotta do at least once in his life. It’s like drinking bull testicle beer--a one-time-BAM-done kind of deal that’s a true testament to one’s manhood.
