Bacteria, mold, insects, I don't care, none of that bothers me, and there's absolutely no reason for it to bother anyone.
There are more bacterial cells in a human than human cells anyway.

Bacteria rules the world. Everything depends on bacteria.

The particular squick that Rune is experiencing is not even one that I can respect.


much more disgusting are things like gelatin and coal tar-derived red food coloring

and fast food in general, bleaaaghugh

Gelatin is a mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the skin, boiled crushed horn, hoof and bones, connective tissues, organs and some intestines of animals such as domesticated cattle, chicken, pigs, and horses. Basically everything that couldn't be used otherwise.

I generally avoid anything that wears it's skeleton on the outside. The only exception being some crab cakes because they're just so far removed from what they once were I can put in the mental distance.

I don't get the gelatin aversion. 'Specially compared to bugs. All those animals are things I'm used to eating anyway (except horses, I guess), and it sounds like a decent way to not waste parts that would get thrown out otherwise.

I dunno, it's people close to me who were freaking out about gelatin, not me personally.

It makes more sense to me than the blanket aversion to insects, though.

Hmmmm, nope, just can't deal with it. It's totally the exoskeleton, too, and I have no idea how to explain it beyond that. Watching someone else eat crab legs is enough to make me turn green.

I mean I think it's the height of rudeness to be a jerk about what other people are eating but that's one thing that I just can't regulate my reaction to. I get around it by just avoiding seafood places (except sushi joints, those are the best).
