Yep. I was riding my bike when it happened. I hope it never happens again, but this is Australia and Summer is approaching so I'm sure there's many more flys to swallow!

Motorcycle enthusiasts learn to appreciate the different flavors of bugs. Bees taste sweet and not at all bad. Grasshoppers taste terrible.

But what about when you sleep? Because I remember hearing something about eating spiders while we sleep, they just crawl right in. Also, since your Vegan how do you get you vitamin b12?

Vegans are recommended to ensure their diet includes foods fortified with vitamin B12. A range of B12 fortified foods are available. These include yeast extracts, Vecon vegetable stock, veggieburger mixes, textured vegetable protein, soya milks, vegetable and sunflower margarines, and breakfast cereals

I think everyone that has a motor bike has eaten some bugs or at least had to pick them out of their teeth.

Yes, everyone remembers that. Why? Because it was a rumour to show how easy it is to make something "common knowledge". http://www.washington.edu/burkemuseum/spidermyth/myths/whileyousleep.html

Every see a spider? They do not crawl onto large warm bodies and find caves with damp airflow to crawl into.

Don't believe the FDA and whatever. They are bought. I don't want to get into a "how do you..." thing about being a vegan. It gets _really_ old, especially the old "what about protein".

On a related note: when I was a young 'un, I went cycling in the countryside. I was free-wheeling down this long slope, built up loads of speed and was really motoring... when a big fly committed suicide by flying into my face.

I was wearing spectacles, which was a good thing cos otherwise I'd probably have been blinded by the damned insect. As it was, I nearly lost control of my bicycle but luckily I didn't crash (at that speed I would have been pretty mangled). And I had to wipe gloopy fly guts off my specs - I had to use my t-shirt, so I rode home with nasty yellow bug intestines all down my front. Yuck!

Maybe LaRoza thinks an accident is an unhappy chain of events? As in the "Air crash investigation" from the "National Geographic Channel"?

And to reply to the question: I don't think I swallowed a fly, but al least one got in one of my nostrils. Nasty.

I swallowed flies, gnats and some other bugs by accident on many occasions.

Once I got a beef Manhattan at my work cafeteria. As I was eating it, I noticed a small flake of beef in the gravy, which is normal, so I kept eating. A little later, I got a closer look and the spec of beef was a small fly. I didn't eat it, but I would have if I weren't paying attention.

One time when I was young I got an apple from our apple tree. I took a big bite only to find the other half of a worm in the apple. It tasted nasty, very bitter.

I ate a cockroach once. It wasn't by accident though. It had been roasted, and covered with chocolate. Apparently it's some African delicacy, and they were passing them out at a local museum that were doing an African exhibition.

No, it was mostly a joke (as if I had total control over anything).

That is nothing, you obviously didn't notice the pieces of dead animal on your plate.

I reckon in the course of my lifetime so far, I've probably swallowed enough flies to make up a decent size family meal of fly stew.

I've never eaten a fly on purpose but plenty have met their demise in my gastric juices while I've been cycling at speed in the summer time. I've also eaten brambles (blackberries) and other wild fruits straight from the bush knowing that many insects will have been in them. It all adds to the protein.

My friend ate a live earthworm recently when I told him that another friend had done so previously (I lied) and that it was a sign of superior masculinity to eat a live earthworm.

I once had a large fly smashed on impact with my eye once. I only found a bit of it afterwards but my eye was really sore. The next morning when I woke up my eye was really really sore, and when I went to wash my face I found the rest of a big fly in my eye. It's carcass had spent the night trapped between my eyeball and the soft tissue that holds my eye in place.

everyone has swallowed flies!

at school one of my friends had something fly in to his ear, he could hear it buzzing around trying to get out lol. in the end he went to hospital and they got it out, he brought it back in a jar and it was really big, about 3 inches long :lol:

well...it was more along the lines of a maggot. I was eating a candy bar and I unwrapped half of it and took a bite. then i unwrapped more of it and saw half a maggot wiggling around in the wrapper. I then figured out where the other half was:o i ran to the bathroom and almost threw up.....i didn't finish the candy bar and my brother could not stop laughing about it.

for my first job i was a logger, comes with living in rural vermont. Swallowing bugs was common because all the kicked up dirt and sap would attract fruit flies, Horseflies, anything you can think of.

eventually you gain a technique for swallowing them quickly to you can keep hacking away at the trees :-p

Well, I am a vegan so I am justifiable disturbed by killing and consumtion of animals, but I don't get why non vegetarians care.

They don't mind eating the flesh of larger animals that have been dead for a while, but are grossed out at eating smaller animals, even though they are healthier.

I used to eat a lot of fish when I was a teenager, however, I preferred tuna out of the can. I don't know, I never liked it with all the stuff people usually put in it and preferred it like that.

That is nothing, you obviously didn't notice the pieces of dead animal on your plate.Pieces of dead animal are savory, and they taste delicious when prepared right, just as long as they aren't invertebrates. Most invertebrates aren't savory, other than a few delicacies that the general population has been brainwashed into thinking are good.

I have even seen Bear Grylls spit out a beetle because he thought it was nasty.


The entire movie, or that flash movie? It is a good movie.I just watched the entire movie about a week and a half ago. That is one of my favorite quotes, though.

And if you have an ethics problem with listening to non-free audio formats, what are you doing watching a non-free video format, like flash? ;)

I must recognize, not flies, but I have eaten ants (not anymore), but not as an accident, but as a life experience, even though in my country we do not eat insects. Here LaRoza is right, in Romania there are eaten some animals, even the people know that is not healthy for them.

Ants taste like acidic and barbed things. But not brackish, as I did it several times. At least to my gustative papillae. Maybe I will do it again, if given the chance.
