Awhile back started a game called roach hockey in the garage....get a broom....get a good swing ready and hit the roach up against the wall....if you do it right you might hear a crunch....and then....instant death for the roach....

On a serious note, bugs overall don't bother me, but I am allergic to bee stings and do not like snakes of any type.

When in a Navy school in TN, we kept a record on a clipboard of the different sounds made when we squished the hundreds of roaches that infested the barracks on a daily basis. Going to the head at night was always a challenge as you couldn't possibly walk there and back w/o finding several under your shower shoes. I swear you could hear those damned things marching after lights out.

I don't have entomophobia, but giant centipedes give me the heebie jeebies. Biggest one I saw, about 12 inches, was in Brazil. In Hawaii, an 8 incher ran up my leg under my shorts and somehow I managed not to get bitten. Hideous, nasty and agressive.

Omg, that's a snake... I would freak out, and I just changed my mind.. I'm not going to Hawaii anymore...
Growing up I always used to run into rattles snakes, oh how I hate snakes..

Centipedes....fast little things....one of the insects that are quite a challenge to kill....

Ever see a Sand Spider?

Google one....we've had a couple big ones and a couple small ones....another speedy little thing....

A rubber mallet does wonders in smooshing these things....

Deep-fried mealworms really aren't bad, actually. Kind of a nutty, roasted sunflower seed-like flavor.

Chocolate-covered ants didn't do much for me, though, the same goes for crickets. It wasn't the flavor; they really don't have much of a flavor on their own, it's in how they are prepared. Rather, the legs kept getting stuck in my teeth, which was too aggravating for me.

And people think when I eat sardines that there is something wrong with me....

We are fast approaching the time when we will *have* to consider "alternative" foods. Before this century is through, it is estimated that there will be one billion Americans. There is a limit to how much food we can produce.

Don't blame the sardines, KM. People think there is something wrong with you all the time, whether you eat sardines or not.
