    Things everyone should know. Basic life skills.

    Are you saying everyone should be able to satisfy their own mom?

    Would you eat bug milk byproducts?

    Considering how many countries have a declining population, I think their estimates on how much food we will need are exaggerated.

    https://currently.att.yahoo.com/att/luxury-insect-ice-cream-made-103119305.html Its luxury ice cream uses EntoMilk, a dairy alternative made by blending the larvae of a tropical insect known as the black solider fly. The UN predicts that the world will need to double food production to feed the global population by 2050 and has long promoted insect farming as a sustainable alternative protein source to traditional livestock. Everybody Loves Ice Cream "We set out to change the way insects were seen, produced and used in the food industry," said Leah Bessa, who co-founded Gourmet Grubb in 2017. Although over 1,900 insect species are estimated to be consumed by humans worldwide, insects are yet to reach the mainstream of Western cuisine. "We were expecting a lot of push back, however people have been extremely open minded," Bessa told CNN. "Everybody loves ice cream." The ice cream flavors include chocolate, peanut butter and Christmas spices. According to Bessa, EntoMilk has "a slightly earthy undertone" and gives the ice cream "a rich, creamy taste." But it's not just about the taste — Bessa says insect ice cream is also high in nutrients. According to Gourmet Grubb EntoMilk is five times higher in protein than dairy. According to the UN, it is widely accepted that insects provide nutrients that are comparable to meat and fish. "Insects are inherently high in fat and protein and minerals," said Bessa. "The black solider fly has protein and fat content comparable to beef, and zinc, iron and calcium that are much higher than that of beef." EntoMilk is also lactose-free and gluten-free, and unlike dairy milk it does not contain any carbohydrates or sugars. Environmentally Friendly "We decided to focus on an industry [food] that is under a lot of pressure due to animal welfare and environmental concerns," said Bessa. "Insects aren't sentient beings, and they only grow in the conditions in which they thrive, so the farming conditions cater to their animal welfare needs." According to Gourmet Grubb, liter for liter, EntoMilk is more water and energy efficient to produce than any dairy milk or dairy milk alternatives. "Insects need very little water, feed and space to grow," Bessa explained. "They also produce little/no greenhouse gases compared to traditional livestock." Because insects can be farmed indoors in small, controlled environments they can be reared in urban areas, reducing the impact of transporting the milk to the city. It also means they are less at risk of being impacted by external climate patterns, which would affect cattle and crops. There is also potential for insect farming to reduce waste. "Some insects, like the black solider fly larvae, have the ability to feed on a wide range of organic matter," said Bessa. "For example, the spent grain left over from brewing beer is used to feed the larvae." The Future of Food? Currently, Gourmet Grubb's ice cream is only distributed in South Africa, but the global edible insects market is predicted to reach $1.2 billion by 2023. Last month, Gourmet Grubb also opened a concept popup store, which included savory insect dishes such as insect powder pasta, chickpea black-larvae croquettes and mopani worm hummus, to serve alongside its ice cream. "We need to find alternatives that will be able to sustain the growing population and create a sustainable and environmentally friendly farming system," said Bessa. "The only way EntoMilk can truly make a difference and reduce the pressures of traditional dairy is if it is accepted and consumed on a global scale."

    Trump right again. Puerto Rico version. Will Cora protest???

    Not all. Russia is definitely pretty bad. On average a majority white country has less corruption.

    Every country has corruption. White country corruption pales in comparison to non white

    Kobe Bryant - Dead in helicopter crash

    Yes. It's more sad that a child dies than a 41 year old rapist.

    Kobe Bryant - Dead in helicopter crash

    Awesome. Must be sweet to make a viral joke about an incident where a 13 year old girl died a few hours after it happens.

    Welcome to Adulthood kid. Bad Beat style.

    I was in a small tournament at someone's house playing hold em. I made it to the final 3. I was playing really well all night. One of the guys at the table was an older guy who was pretty drunk. I had bet the pot to a decent size off of nothing on this hand. 9 high. I knew the drunk guy didn't have anything, so I went all in trying to bluff on the river, approximately doubling the pot. He called. I couldn't believe it. He had Queen high. I don't remember anyone calling on that big of a bet with that small of a high card. Edit, there was an ace or king on the board. I don't remember. It was a really poor odds play for him.
