    Ever eat an insect?

    Have you ever eaten an insect? If so, what insect, and what were the circumstances?

    We've probably all eaten bits of insects that we didn't know about, but I'm wondering if anyone has ever eaten an insect on purpose.

    I've never eaten an insect on purpose, but when I was a small child (around age 7-8) I played with ladybugs and caterpillars and even put them in my mouth sometimes when I had too many in my hands to carry. Now I shudder to even think I did that, but for some reason it didn't seem gross when I was a child.

    A Hissing Roach. Big son of a gun. Ate him with some hot sauce. There have been some others, but that was the biggest and nastiest.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Yes, several, both in training (SV-80A) and while abroad. Fried grasshoppers and crickets (sans legs) are pretty good. Worms, grubs, not the tastiest but nutritious.

    I have eaten the big grasshoppers we have out here, fried and raw.

    I learned how to eat them raw after capture when I worked for Wildlife. They aren't too bad - kind of look and taste like cantelope inside.

    Yep. I had a friend that was prone to embellishing just about everything. I was standing at a service station talking to him and I casually reached over and picked up a mayfly. I ate it while he was talking to me. When he told other people about it I denied it and nobody believed him.

    (It tasted like chicken)

    Yes. Survival school. Ants.

    I also ate grubs and worms.

    I ate Army chow for 9 years. I think it will top bugs. (although I ate them too in a couple of schools I went to).

    My parents told me that they caught me eating box elder bugs when i was 3 or 4. Box elder bugs are some of the nastiest smelling insects.

    It isn't, although it should be.

    I did mine for ESAR at age 17.

    Is SV-80A SERE at Fairchild? I'm not familiar with the number.

    I have never knowingly eaten a bug. My oldest daughter, about a year ago, was waking-up from a nap, (She was 23!) and I heard her scream. It seems that she was in the twilight stage of waking-up, and felt something on her lip. She flicked it with her tongue and when she bit down, it kind of squished. She spit it out and it was a Box Elder Bug.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.
