Lets share some frightful stories of the poor bug or arachnid by accident or dang well close to it.

Few times I have accidentally inhaled mosquito while outside, and one time at work I was picking up my coffee cup, to find an almost neon green crab spider looking at me with it's two front legs raised up in the air, almost like it was inviting me to a kiss. I told the spider out loud, "sorry little guy, I don't swing that way" and moved him to a discreet area in the back room.

And my absolute closest to eating a spider alive was in my cabin, I was walking around and this black dot, i stopped and looked around for it again, sure enough there was this orb spider hanging mere inches from my mouth and I did have my mouth open as I walked, voice chat does that to you, little fellow was scared to death. Refused to move as I relocated him, just stayed curled up in a little ball. Took a good minute before the little guy unwrapped himself and ran off pretty fast after I had gently put him down.

Dunno about you guys, but I like spiders, they keep the other bugs out of my sight >:3

Anyway, what are your close encounters of the creepy crawlies that almost or did become a snack?

I remember it clear as day, when I was 5 and I was riding infront of my dad on a motorbike... a fly flew right in my mouth and I gulped it. Ewwww....

(I wonder if there are any health benefits swallowing a live fly?)

I'm 24 now, and I'm still eating bugs. Like the other day, I was eating a spicy squid, and I tasted something tangy, and then I looked at the squid and there were ants!!!

I wiped them off and continued eating the squid...



Seriously these ants are annoying me, I don't know how they can find my food, I try to put it really high but they still can reach it...

Ants are real nasty little things. All it takes is one scout to form up the food brigade.
What I found the best thing to do is put stuff in the fridge, put stuff in baggies, and make sure you seal all cracks with caulk.
All it takes is a single crumb to be found by the scout for it to go downhill.

Other than that, roasted ants do make for a good topping to use for getting things to crunch. Since it is flavorless.

Flying ants are yummy. I always used to be sick as a kid because i'd eat bugs and sand i didn't learn my lesson too, i'd always eat some more. I'd lick the shell of snails and bugs too. Now , I'm kinda a clean freak

When I was younger (about 11 I think) I was visiting my Grandparents who live in Hawaii, and ever since I was little I would always remember them yelling at everyone to shut and open the front door quickly so no flies would get in the house because Hawaii has a shit load of them, and you were doomed if you leave your food or drink outside unattended for a few moments. One day I got a soda from the fridge, took a few gulps, and put it back inside. About an hour or so past, and I went to go finish it. I took a sip and felt something in my mouth. I panicked and spat the soda out and to my horror there was a fucking fly in it...... The End.

Flys are the least of your worries in Hawaii. The centipedes there are vicious and they do not die!

I've eaten plenty of bugs on accident, extra protien

I've eaten insects to stay alive.

Also, did you know the average human will consume 50 spiders in their lifetime while sleeping?

I'm seriously frustrated by them since Spiders specifically prefer my room over anyone else's, I always find them hanging around/in my bed. The closest call I ever had was when I had been after quite a big spider (at least in terms of England) and lost it, later that night I was reading a book and something caught my eye, I looked to the side and right next to me the spider was just sitting there. I also know my mum woke up and looked in the mirror one night and thought 'I don't remember going to sleep with a broach on' and it turned out the broach was a huge spider sitting on her chest (pervy bugger).

Eating insects doesn't bother me, so long as it's on purpose. I've eaten roasted meal worms, lolipop scorpions, I like authentic red velvet cake with the dye of insect origin, I enjoy crustaceans (crabs, shrimp, crayfish, etc... are basically underwater bugs), and I've even deliberately swallowed a few live bugs (didn't chew). I don't like eating or nearly devouring them on accident.

I've had a few instances of bugs drowning in my drinks and me almost swallowing them; a McDonalds that I've visited recently had dead moths in a drink machine (which pissed me off); they'll occasionally land and get stuck on my food (particularly gnats); rice weevils once infested my pantry until I moved (when they're in pasta and rice, they can simply be washed away); ants used to occasionally get into my cereal boxes; swarming gnats sometimes come close to ending up in my mouth.

Fortunately, I have a habit of watching my food and drinks before they enter my mouth, which allows me avert many instances.

What's wrong with eating bugs? Their high in proteins, low in fat, and apparently high in vitamins and minerals. What seems to be the problem?
