>i must confess i’m jaded in terms of internet content, but i have to say this website really goes the exceptional mile:


For several years I was a dietary vegan. I was considering a long trek in the Congo with an ethnomusicologist — also a strict vegetarian — and he asked me would I eat meat if my life depended on it? I said no, but I realize that was foolish of me — I am an animal and it’s my instinct to try to survive. He had been to the region before and was served monkey for dinner, while stuck injured in a rural area. He survived.

So far I’ve survived all of my “weird meat” experiences. In fact, I’ve rarely gotten a stomach ache after these experiments. I’ve eaten dog, cat, rat, cockroach, camel penis, bee larve, scorpions, spiders, night hawk, and pre-born duck embryo without feeling ill. Can’t say the same for Taco Bell or McDonalds.
