Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

uh oh......

Well I was going to write an interesting thing on transvestites but this came up instead. (ok, how many of you are shaking yours heads now wondering if I have totally gone over the edge?????)

It seems people do taste like pork. This has often been stated but no one I know has ever tried it to see. I know that the cannibals of the South Seas used to refer to human meat as "long pork". (It is thought this may have something to do with the fact that humans like pigs carry their fat outside the muscles instead of marbled within them. Taste Study)

But, to get back to the source of this particular bit of writing, the Japanese have come up with a robot that is capable of "identifying wines, cheeses, meats and hors d'oeuvres" when given a small sample. It is planned to enable people to tell the authenticity of wines, or identify unknown food perhaps. (Or maybe the Japanese just thought it would be fun. Who knows?) At any rate a reported stuck his hand into the robots mouth and was identified as bacon. Another tried and came out as prosciutto. (a fancy Italian ham for those who wonder) So, it is official. We do taste like pork. Or maybe reporters really are pigs......

We should feed the spammers to the robots regardless of what they taste like.

I was going to delete teh spam but now you have all talked about it I guess I'll leave it there. Please don't click it's link anyone! (No need to attract more...)

this whole human pork thing is quite humorous but have you considered the technology behind this? IF this robot is capable of distinguishing between differnt kinds of wine and food it really is a technological marvel!

If you need a spam filter, Akismet is free and has been working fine for me for a year now. It was a separate download at Wordpress when I started my blog and is not only for that service.
In the Mediterranean cultures - like Jews - pork was not allowed as food because the pests that infested swine thrived on humans. Food that is too similar to your own bodily makeup is a health risk !
