What insect is the least scarring to eat and why? (Include preparation details if needed)

Friday Night Questionnaire 3

10 months ago
If it's a singular insect, I would go for the smallest one I could find. Google says a fairyfly, on average about 0.5-1 mm. I wouldn't even notice, probably.

Friday Night Questionnaire 3

10 months ago
Grasshopper for sure. Classic survival bug, doesn't do or eat anything gross. Allegedly tastes like popcorn and John the based Baptist liked them too.

Crickets are up there I suppose, but in populated areas they eat literal garbage and...it might feel too personal.

I know cicadas are also deliberately eaten by lots of people, they freak me out but then shrimp are horrible little ocean bugs too, just a matter of mentally adjusting.

I guess I might eat earthworms? The texture would be a problem though.

The leaf cutter ants destroying the crepe myrtles in my yard are eaten in Mexico and South America it seems. My willingness to eat these might grow along with my spite.

I know termites are eaten in some cultures and are perfectly safe and nutritious ends yadda yadda, but I'd never do that, I'd just choose to die. So I think that's it for the list of bugs I would choose over starvation.

I've always wanted to try crickets. In the EU it is also now recently legal to use crickets as food ingredients in supermarkets.

You can crush them into flour or roast them and apparently they taste kinda like nuts or chicken.

No offence cricket.

Friday Night Questionnaire 3

Giant grubs are the basic bitch insect of survival and seem like they'd actually be good.

Mealworms because they would be crunchy, and I wouldn't have to remember the crunchy trauma of stepping on a dead spider barefooted. The texture was unpleasant.

If it can be barbecued, scorpions. I don't know why, but I want to try one.

Friday Night Questionnaire 3

Ditto on the scorpion. That would be cool

Friday Night Questionnaire 3

I'm sure I've accidentally swallowed a fly once, so probably that. Preparation method: place it in my food, forget all about it, and consume it while distracted.

Snails aren't really insects but I've tried escargot before. I actually enjoyed it until my parents told me what it was, then I was slightly scarred.

Ants really aren't that bad. They don't taste like anything, and they're so tiny that you can't really notice them.

I had crickets one time. They were ground up into a powder and made into cheesy chips. They were pretty good. Probably because 1: It didn't look like anything like a cricket and 2: They were cheese flavored. 

Other than that a couple of times I swallowed the odd mayfly that flew into my mouth.

Fine. You can appear and disappear at will, but you're stuck looking like a ghastly version of yourself. You can interact with small objects, but nothing biological. You can fly through objects and potentially travel the world if you desire. Satisfied? 

Friday Night Questionnaire 3

10 months ago
How small? To what extent biologically?

Satisfied. I'd go and see the world, and then probably just 'interact' with my phone, computer, or books.

On occasion I might haunt people just to mess with them. "Life" would be boring after a bit, I'd imagine.

Friday Night Questionnaire 3

Might as well go all out and haunt some passenger jets. Imagine how terrifying that would be. Perfect captive audience. Trains would also be incredibly fun.

I've always wanted to travel the world, so I'll haunt as many tourist spots as possible. The London Eye will spin dangerously quick and out of control, the Eiffel Tower's lights will flicker ominously in shades of white and blood-red (and probably spell out a sinister message in Morse code if I wanted to be extra), and the Statue of Liberty's torch will set fire to any boats that come too close by.

When I get bored of this, I'll go visit Petros' Waffle House.

I'd haunt pychics and mediums but deliberately give them fake information to make them look like idiots in front of their clients. Like:

"Your granny Ethal says she's so proud of you."
"Who the fuck is granny Ethal?"

Blade Runner. I can't remember which edition of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? had it, but there was something at the end that talked about movie. Iirc, Dick didn't want the movie to be his book on a screen, so they had to write something different for the author to okay it. Rutger Hauer rewrote the Tears in Rain monologue the night before filming the scene, and Philip K Dick died before the movie was released. As stupid as it probably sounds, not knowing what Dick would've thought of Hauer's monologue will probably haunt me 'til my death day. I think it goes without saying this is going off of my poor memory of reading something years ago.

I should do a reread and a rewatch sometime.

Most of the movies I watch are pretty dang old, so this was a really interesting question to think about. It's difficult finding one that I've read and watched. I may have to come back to this after combing through my memory, but off the top of my head, my favorite book film was the Jane Eyre that Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine played in. It was pretty fantastic. Apparently it's from 1943

One that might be close is the 1960 version of The Time Machine which was also pretty great and had pretty cool special effects for the day, though it didn't follow the book as faithfully. I probably still liked it a bit better than the book.
