haha. I'm just wondering, MS, if you know this from personal experience???

not exactly MY personal experience, but my neighbor.  H's husband said he was going to go LOOK at some pack goats, maybe - MAYBE - buy 3-4.  He came home with 6.  And a free llama.  A llama that had killed the neighbor's dog (to be fair, it was in its pen), and a number of coyotes.  This llama will not anyone near it, not for nothing.  H has a number of small children and she was NOT pleased  ::)

Yeah... fun thread, Mr. Bill.

I think maybe Ebonearth did win the prize for most adventurous eating... way back when.

I'd have to be pretty doggone near starvation before I'd eat"

- an egg that wasn't scrambled  -  I eat them over easy or even soft boiled. I used to have them raw in orange juice.

- organ meat (liver, heart, gizzard, brains, chitterlings, kidney, lung), sweetbreads or odd animal parts (chicken feet, chicken combs, egg sacs) - PRETTY DARN HUNGRY

- scrapple, headcheese... any jellied-meat - Scrapple - no problem - headcheese - hungry

- raw fat (blubber) - I had some once - Starving

- some types of fish (sardines, anchovies, herring, eel, lutefisk, etc) - Any Day of the Week

- rat, mouse, dog, cat, horse meat - NOPE

- worms, grubs and various other insects - Probably

I gotta stop - I'm grossing myself out...

Only pepper spray? Why not a gun?

The two examples above concerned girls in the 9-13 year age range.

she was 12-14.  Contrary to international news reports, it is not a "wild west" with guns here in America.  We do not arm children unless we are teaching them shooting skills AT THE RANGE.

ah, sorry.  I was responding to the original article.  The girl in the more recent article was 9, but my comment stands.

Tomatoes. Feeding the small green/bad/oddball ones to the pigs.

I did a quick test running FireFox - nightly build and did not see the pop up.

However, I do remember seeing that question from time to time when running my laptop on other sites.

Note: I run with the FireFox nightly build, a bit more bleeding edge than most people want to deal with.

thanks for your good work.
