     ""


    Should you eat what ants would NOT touch? Top right: margarine, left: reduced fat margarine, bottom right: natural butter.

    I once heard on some TV show, that margarine is the by-product of rocket fuel. Oh,well..some people say that rocket fuel cures cancer

    My favorite ant died two years ago, suffering from dementia,  and lived to the ripe old age of 95. She would never eat margarine, only butter, just like those aunts in the photo.

    Ants are wise, like your ant........lol

    I think they are telling us something. I alwyas buy unsalted butter only.

    I'm not an ant, I'll eat all three if not given a choice..................

    Obviously ants are smarter than humans, although they haven't learned how to churn their own butter, they will though. Already they have communities that have no unemployment, there's absolutely no crime, they have total understanding of each other's needs and will help out when needed.  They know how to work in teams to get the most difficult job accomplished, they farm and even have cattle (aphids) Their military is second to none and they can defend their community against even the worst of terrorists and win! and they have no weapons other than their mandibles.


    maybe we can learn from the ant?? But for now, stick with the butter..  LOL

    Yes, they certainly work together for the common good.

    Yes they do, but lets not forget they have no compassion, love or know right from wrong, they think as a community, they are not free thinkers but they get the most difficult problems solved through social common good. One must also note that the maimed and sick are killed dismembered and eaten. This too is for the common good. They do not tolerate the unable. Sound a little like communism?? Of course, in the eyes of the workers, this is perfectly normal so they continue on. However, people are thinkers, they worked on due to fear. This too is communism. Works in the insect world but not in the human world.

    I had fried ants in Thailand, ironically you can dip them in melted butter.


    Didn,t make them taste much better though.

    and which type of wine is the correct one to serve when dining on Thai ants?
    nomdeplume

    Chateau de Fourmis, a Grand Cru unknown even to Robert Parker.

    I had chocolate covered ants. Chocolate makes nearly everything palatable.
    Bob/PKB

    Did you have to use a chop stick to hold them? But, really, enough chocolate and they are just a tiny raisin in the mix. :D
    Bob/PKB

    That sounds really awful!

    So big and so strong! ....and the night is so long. (Jay and the Americans)

    Ants will swarm over a puddle of Coca-Cola.  They will climb over one another to sip it up.  Mechanics have been known to use Coke as a cleaning agent for engines.  and yes, amny of us will enjoy a coke from time to time.....even though it's not too good for us.

    Headless Man

    It's the sugar in the Coke, bet it's good for them........
    doolittle

    Ok, I'll go with that...good for them good for us!!! (I have a sweet tooth!)
    mycatsmom

    I used to use Coke to take rust off of my chrome bumper on my '70 Nova.
    doolittle

    Good to know MCM- perhaps I can remove rust on my car with it

    I'll eat the natural butter, before the ants get to it.....lol

    the ants at my place love the cat food, still don't think I'd eat it though,

    Wow.. it makes you wonder who taught the ants what to eat ?

    Years ago someone made bread out of ground up roaches and was selling it to the public. It was found to be high in protein. However the people of Harlem took offense and the bread is no more.

    ed shank

    Not sure of what actually went into the bread, but the main ingredient was roaches.

    `ll settle for the low fat option!!!! :-))

    ANTS NEED  TO PUT ON A BIT OF WEIGHT!!!...I DON`T...I

    Once had the ants marching 12 x 12 to get to a butter dish left uncovered.  Have also seen ants feasting on feces, dead bodies, and rotting food.   I can't trust them for my nutritional advice.

    ROMOS

    Don't think even chocolate would've made the ants I had tasty!
    ROMOS

    No, they were huge fire ants on a skewer dipped in butter, ate two skewers "cause I'm a man" YUUUUUUUUGGGGHHHHH!!!!
    ROMOS

    Believe me, it was, but I smiled after swallowing "cause I'm a man"....LOL

    Ants have a very sweet tooth; they like fatty proteins too. Should humans eat what ants eat? No, although we act like ants.

    mycatsmom

    We reproduce like ants.
    WHY DO YOU NEED TO EAT???...you`re head is not attached to ur body..OH headless man!!:-Z
    Headless Man

    Well, you haven't seen me eating, can be messy.........lol

    I can not answer all that   thank you

    wot bout u got no home no job n nothing 2 eat

    Headless Man

    Then eat the ants too........

    Yuck !  I've notice that if pieces of meat in canned soup doesn't taste good, or something like that, I give it the taste test, by putting it on the floor for my cats. If they turn up their nose at it,then you know, it's not the real thing.....that  it's been cheapened down by the company putting something in it for a filler, like  chickens' feet.

    I watched a program on the tele the other night it was called EAT FAST & DIET


    really interesting that you should only ever eat when hungry and never eat breakfast (that really suits me as I never eat breackfast) and you only eat small portions of food and you can eat what you liked and one day a week you fast and only have 600 cals and drink as much water as you liked this guy did this as he had very high cholestral and was boarder line diebeties and his dad dies of prostate cancer and his count was high after a month of doing this diet his cholestral was naormal his blood count was back to naormal his diabeatas was normal and his body fat mass index was brilliant I think it might be on I player it was on BBC2 brilliant and he ate butter!!!

    1. Why to eat ? Llife is not for food but food is for life.


    2. How to eat ? Drink  the solid and eat the liquid.


    3. What to eat ? Dont be so smart Mr. Human ! You only have no toungue. Look ! there are millions of life having their own tongue. you only have exceptional life who need production, cooking and kitchen. but what about other animals ? learn from them, do the research and get the conclusion what to eat. But dont worry it is formulated just need your different thinking.
