WOW. There's a lot of things I'll try, but that's one food that I know I will never, ever, try. You californians really are insane.

Balut is pretty damn rare and I've never had that and I consider myself an adventurous eater as well. Primarily a Phillipino dish.

I am adventurous with food. It was actually quite good. I have tried many new things this week.

Still I 'll be ready for a good ol' fashioned PB&J (Jif creamy or crunchy w/ Smuckers Red Rasperry)with a glass of milk when I get back home.

Montezuma has yet to exact his revenge; could be the copious amounts of Tequila killing any living bugs in my system....


Did you have any Iguana?

I don't get it??? :bah:

Duck Eggs = okay to eat; much like a hard boiled chicken egg, or scrambled, if u prefer.
Balut = not okay to eat? kinda odd why u can't eat the duck at this stage of it's growth. :rolleyes:
Full grown Ducks = still okay to eat; kinda of what everybody is used to ordering.

;)

It's actually eaten in most of Asia, and a favorite among Filipinos, like myself.

Jet Blue doesn't serve dinners, as I discovered last night. :( 6 hour flight (4-10pm) consisted of vending type stuff like animal crackers, cookies, Doritos, water, ginger ale.

I am in California .. but definitely not looking to try that ...

Oooooo where you at?

Benefit of flying Jet Blue is that you can ask for lots of snacks, they will give you more, just gotta ask. Not like those damn airlines which only give you one damn bag of peanuts! :mad:

And you can ask for all those snacks while being stranded for 10 hours. :crazy:

god damn it.

I HATE living in the dorms.

"For dinner I had..." a sandwhich today

Yesterday, a sandwhich

two days ago... nothing, because I would rather starve then eat the crap they have here
What?? Is your school real small or something? I used to eat goood in college. Various 'restaurants' and a real one (chick-fil-a). Though I didn't have to eat all that much as beer contains many calories. I was able to use much of my meal plan in the school's little grocery store on cokes to mix with golden grain.


Tonight I had a microwavable lasagna.

San Jose :cool: I have friends who work at eBay and Google, and we went to visit.

Saw a silver SVT on 17 south today, female driver.

Oh, that's fine for YOU to eat it, I just think it's revolting on a mass scale to my palate. I'm no expert on Balut, but here's my opinion. With eggs, you can cook it into a nice, edible, tasty nutrient dense meal. With duck, you've got some good meat and flavor. With Balut, you're eating a fetal duck in the whole. When I eat a grown duck, I don't eat the bones, brain, organs, fetal sac, embryotic fluid, eyeballs, etc. From what you said about Balut, I take it that you do. That trash is nastaaaayy. Makes me want to go join a pro-life protest just seeing that little baby duck all cooked up.
