I wonder why this doesn't surprise me

Scary man, to think they will really eat anything ... Next we will hear they suddenly become carnivours ...
This thread is full of sh*t! But it's funny though.
Reading it sounds just like a book I read about Chinese Food and the western world. A research into the cultural exchanges between the western world and the chinese world from ancient times to present. It spoke frankly of how the westerners in the past would regard Chinese food as if I may quote " even when given the abundance of bacon, eggs and other Christian food, them foul Chinamen feast on rats, dogs and other unnameables" The book admitted that these were views that had a heavy racist tone to it in which westerners degraded anything Chinese ate and took the opportunity to blow up any culinary difference they may have....
I saw this excavation site on Nat Geo I think, there are literally thousands of bones there, enough for the scientist to explore as well as for the chinese to use the bones to eat.....
Things come and go in this universe, only humans care to keep things about the past.....
anyway, it is just Calcium and other minerals, whats the flurry about eating bones?
And how come I am an SM? Equal to Goh CT?
Hmmmmm, haven't seen Malays talking bad about Malays from Malaysia, or Indonesians :-)
Interesting, looks like some feel threatened?
In the US new immigrants are not so much frowned upon, except for hispanics perhaps now....
The british in the late 1800s to early 1900s were grinding up Egyptian mummies into powder, the mummy powder was widely promoted as medicine and exlirs of longevity.
There was a whole industry based on it, many Egyptian tombs were decimated because of this.
Limbs such as hands, feet were sold as curios, while the head and other parts such as the organs that was placed back to the bodies were said to be best for medicine.
The supply grew limited, and a lot of fake mummy powders were sold.
the eqyptians were mummifying cats as an industry, to serve their obsession with Isis.
so basically everyone eats virtually anything, and do rather crazy things, if it is marketed correctly.
