    Wow! Well, I'm actually vegetarian so I don't think I would because I'm not eating animals anyway. I would, though if it meant more people would become vegetarian/vegan.

    I read the linked article. Interesting, yes. But no thanks, I’ll pass on the Ouroboros Steak.

    No, Thanks. I am an ex-vegetarian and I don't buy veg propaganda. Eating ourselves is a bit blasphemous anyway. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    My mind took this in a completely different direction prior to reading the article and your actual post :joy::smirk:


    But in regards to the article, no, I would not eat myself. Knowing that it came from me would creep me out. I'll just stick to my steaks from a cow and other animals as food sources, thanks.

    Interesting, but I don't think I'd be able to eat such a weird thing.

    That’s disgusting. I would rather starve than eat that steak. It’s dancing the line between cannibalism and omnivore. I get that some meats are bad for the environment, but what about chicken and fish. I’ve never fished because I would never kill a fish and would feel bad for embedded a hook in its lip for no reason. I’m fine with eating animals that come in a packet from the supermarket looking nothing like what they were. I don’t think anyone would go for the steak made by and from yourself.

    I'm torn - I feel like eventually we're gonna shift away from our current eating habits. Think I'll go vegetarian before I have to chose between pseduo-human and insects LOL

    Haha, well, I used to be able to do that as a younger and more flexible teen. Can confirm it was pretty weird but nice :innocent:

    Lucky! I've always wanted to try that and every attempt has been unsuccessful (struggles of being a fat guy, and also fucked up lower spine). And I worry that as I get older I'll never be able to do it. :disappointed_relieved:

    Hmm... when you have to put the words "technically not" in front of something...

    You have to feed it with your own blood, for God's sake, "until it's fully grown". It's a little creepy, and as a vegan, I can just eat beans and take my B12, so no thank you.

    Sure, why not. If I didn't have to pay for it or nothing I'd totally do it.

    I mean, depending on the insect they can be very nutritious and clean to produce.

    When I read the title of the thread, the first thing I thought of us is another question that has been asked on the forum before: do you like your own "type?" LOL.
