Whole crickets are nasty. They're so dry your saliva doesn't work so they end up all sticky in your mouth. Like eating dry pine needles or sticks. They don't taste particularly bad, so I'm not surprised cricket flour is OK. And I'm not surprised you can make flour out of the little buggers.

Ants are fine, in spite of the formic acid.

Mosquitoes taste like dust.

Jellyfish are fine, if you like chewing rubber.

Scorpions are just plain nasty, no matter what anyone says. They have a truly bitter core.

I've heard whole crickets are better if you cook them first- like a dry biscuit.

Ants are yummy.

Will not eat mosquitoes, ironically.

Scorpions, from what i have heard, need a *heroic* amount of seasoning to be made palatable.

I'm LOVING Sam Wilson- excellent characterizations and portrayals, although I'm not buying the way his fight with Usagent- another character i have always loved- ended. Never really followed Steve, but I'm not joining the angry mob on that one.

Why we don't eat roaches is beyond me.

They are some of the best protein available.

I love cricket flour.

...Nobody is, and nobody has.

"Things have gotten better" is not the same thing as saying "things are perfect". You're just arguing for the sake of argument at this point because you're just loudly agreeing with the people you're yelling at.

"better" is a loaded term as the line that defines it is going to be in very different places for very different people.

Neither of those incidents are Al Sharpton's doing in any way. He had a tangential role in both. I don't stand by everything Al Sharpton says, but his message has always been non-violent. If you attempt to help the poorest people at the bottom of society, not all of them are going to be paragons of humanity. I think it would be fair to criticize Al Sharpton for going after publicity, but that is absolutely necessary in a civil rights movement.

Just out of curiosity, what civil rights leaders do you think have done a good job of improving race relations in the last couple of decades?

I'm not siding with Normal Osbourne at all here, but he's not wrong about Al Sharpton. He DID incite that incident at Freddy's. I don't think that his intent was to cause deaths but he had to know that what he was saying that would incite passions in a way that would not end well.

That being said, Al Sharpton ONLY exists because white politicians stood by and did nothing whenever racism reared its head in the black community. Whether it was a place like Freddy's or police brutality instead of stepping up and speaking up for their constituents they did nothing. They could have easily blunted his influence but they couldn't be bothered. I personally dont care for Sharpton, he's an opportunist and that's being mild. But like him or not he gets the publicity and he gets results.

ugh. I have hated that oaf since the purple tracksuit and perm days. He's the drunk uncle of the civil rights movement. No-one invited him, but he shows up anyways, drinking your top shelf liquor(that you haven't opened yet and were saving for a special occasion) and telling everyone how things would be better if everyone did what he did before passing out on the couch at 6pm snoring loudly through the game you were going to watch with your guests.

More generally, peaceful protest doesn't do crap. Maybe movement building and only then if you're lucky.

Non-violent resistance and action isn't the same as peaceful protest. Non-violent resistance involves taking action, not just complaining. You need to hurt them, not just get attention. Strikes are the most obvious example - not violent, but a cost to the employer. Even boycotts - the bus boycotts and the lunch counter boycotts were successful Civil Rights examples. Deny them your money, unless they integrate.

This is part of what I meant by peaceful protesting.

except, as history shows, it was not. People were beaten horribly, fire houses were turned on them, they were savaged by dogs. Almost all were thrown in jail and the court system was choked with proceedings against protestors. All with the blessing of the police department and the legal system. This was not peaceful movement many said it was.

There are some people with strange ideas about what cops can do.

The short answer is cops CAN DO anything they want. And they fully expect you to behave whether you committed a crime or not. NOBODY is going to stop a cop from robbing you or killing you, they ARE the authority. Your only recourse is a law suit and the hope that you can convince a judge or jury that the story the police are feeding them is a lie.

no-one is going to be okay living like this.

The last time this happened, things got ugly.

Freehold,

Well what do you find defensible about Bendis crapping on Hawkeye, Captain Marvel and now Miles Morales?

not much, just that that article wasn't very good. I think he is overused and running on fumes. For some reason, marvel has given him the keys and he isn't running things overly well.

    One thing to note is that the girl was charged, along with some other charges, with marijuana possession. It is very likely that probably played into why she tried to get away from law enforcement. She may have ended up being charged with possession anyways if she had stayed and cooperated, and the police or EMTs ending up finding the drugs on her.

    From watching the video it seemed like she simply wanted to get away; and things kind of escalated from there.

    Who knows how often someone flees from an officer or even chooses NOT to call the police after being the victim of a crime, because they are afraid that the real issue might end becoming the dime bag in their pocket or backpack?

    that doesnt make any sense. If I'm injured, why does this give the cops license to search me illegally?

    What AV / Firewall programs do you use, Drejk and Aranna?
    COMMODO Internet Security. Anti-virus and firewall package. Occasionally annoying.

    I also use Comodo Internet Security (the free edition). It gets occasionally annoying with the pop-ups, but it does its job.

    Like Aranna, I also make regular sweeps with Malwarebytes (free). And I use CCleaner (free) every so often as well.

    And yeah, the weakest link in computer security is normally the user. I don't use Outlook or Internet Explorer/Edge as my browsers. I primarily surf using the Chromium-based Opera with uBlock Origin installed; I sometimes use FireFox (also with uBlock Origin), but mostly only for Paizo. I use The Bat! ($) for email, but I think Thunderbird (free) is still supposed to be good. Whether you use an email program or web-based interface for email, configure it to turn off auto-loading pictures from websites (often used for tracking, which lets a spammer/hacker know you email address is valid and your current IP address). Also make sure you can see the actual email domain of the email sender, and mouse-over web links in emails before clicking. Mostly, the best protection is staying...

    Thank you very much for the information and the advice. The internet we take for granted today is not the one I grew up with, it's hard to follow trends in antivirus and the like.

    Y'know, school open houses always remind me why I don't tend to hang out with other parents:

  • Y'know, the big, all-caps, "THIS IS AN ADULTS-ONLY EVENT. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR KIDS TO THIS EVENT" should be some kind of clue that you, y'know, shouldn't bring your kids. So why were there 40-50 young kids running around campus? With BOTH parents? So it wasn't, "We couldn't get a baby-sitter," it was, "We felt that having both of us here was far more important than any of your silly old 'rules'."
  • So, we have 10 minutes per teacher, and 5 minutes to get from class to class. So why are you treating this like some big high school reunion? Every hallway was blocked up with parents catching up with each other after the summer break. Even the stairwells were blocked by chatty parents. Y'know, the event ends at 8:40 pm. You might be able to socialize for 15-20 minutes after that without going past your bedtime!
  • This one strays too far into the political, so I'll just say that I showed magnificent restraint.
    "Excuse me, but I notice that your syllabus includes a section on doing research on the internet. We choose to be a computer-free household, so what accommodations are you going to make for our child?"
    "Well, I provide computers in the classroom, and the library has a full bank of computers, and..."
    "No, you don't understand. We do not want our child using computers AT ALL. You need to adjust that section of the class so that our child does not have to touch a computer. What are you going to do about that?"

    I managed NOT to respond, "Call Child Protective Services?"


  • never been a fan of no kids events unless they were carnal ones.

    It's hard (but not impossible) to bypass acquaintances when you run into them in social situations. The social contract is potent.

    I don't know what this had to do with politics, but I do know that research via Dewey decimal system is a world away from googling everything. I think both are important, and time must be made for each. But going teetotal in either direction is unwise.
