    Invasion of the Murder Hornets. Sounds like a cheapo 50s sci-fi flick. But these guys are seriously evil. Especially if you’re a honeybee.

    Monstrous 'murder hornets' have reached the US | Live Science

    When fried, they’re considered a delicacy in Japan. Honestly, I greatly respect and admire the Japanese. They’re a highly industrious and accomplished people. But what’s with their taste in food...pufferfish, and giant killer hornets? The more toxic the food, the more it’s prized. :scratch:
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Perhaps it's a difference in attitudes about food. We see food as a commodity, with our consumerist and materialist worldview - something to be scarfed down and then we move on. It's not an art form. Whereas if food and food preparation are seen as an art, then it makes sense: it requires immense skill to be able to prepare a food that would otherwise be toxic, so it's a sign of the chef's craft and dedication.

    Two disclaimers:
    (1) I'm guessing here, I don't know this to be 100% correct.
    (2) I recognize that I am making vast generalizations. Obviously some people in the US treat food as an art, and obviously some people in Japan don't.

    I wish I was in a heavy metal band just so I could name it “Murder Hornet”.
