Consider the Maggots
Something I thought of recently.

...

I'll ask you to do a visualization exercise.

....

Close your eyes - and picture you're holding a bowl of rice - your lunch.

Now look closely at the rice - and you notice -- some of the rice is moving.

Your lunch has maggots in it.

....
Do you feel revolted? Do you toss down the bowl in disgust?

Why? Do you feel cheated? Do you feel violated?

Why?

You're obviously not THAT hungry.

If you were - you'd pick out the maggots, and eat the rice.

Or - were you hungry enough - you'd eat them too - as there's no sense in sharing your meal with maggots, and they're just protein.

And still - wouldn't you feel just a bit peeved that you had to make that decision to eat/not eat maggots?

But --- you really shouldn't complain.

You got to make that choice.

...

Imagine what it's like with no bowl at all.


I doubt we can.

RE: Consider the Maggots
I guess I would just wonder about if the rice was improperly stored to the point of a maggot infestation, what other microscopic unpleasantness might also be in there? I've never been hungry enough to "swallow" 50/50 odds that I'm gonna get food poisoning.

Is there a reason this is in the issues and support section? If so, could you please make it clear, since this is a moderated section of the forum.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Just a point of taking problems into perspective.

As in - how bad is it, really?

Sometimes we look at stuff as a problem, when it may not be at all..
