dang.. I've always had this odd fear of someday cracking an egg open and it being freakishly fertilized by mistake.  That creeps me out!

I freak out when I crack an egg and see two yolks - for some reason, the extra yolk makes me actually think about the chicken as a living thing...

Interesting, maybe its the shape.  I've heard of double yolks, but never actually cracked one open.  I think you are safe by even the most conservative definition of life on that, though (pro-life movements don't normally protect unfertilized egg rights).  Unless you are thinking of the chicken that was the source of the egg.

You know, in the Philippines, they eat this thing called dalouth/valouth/baluth - it's a duck/chicken(?) egg with the the bird already half-formed in it and it's considered a delicacy and aphrodisiac...

i saw it on the foodtv show 'a cooks tour'.  that *&^% looks nasty as hell.  but id try it.

You really would?  It stinks so bad...my gag reflex was in action before I could even look at it...don't post about your dumps after you try it, okay?

thats the first thing i would do...post about my turd after i ate one of those.  knowing me, id probably eat one, and find out it tasted weird...but eat another one just to see what its like to eat another. 

i hear theyre incorporating it into restaurants over there.

octopus.  live baby octopus is a delicacy in korea.  but several people die every year from choking on them getting attached to their throats with their little suction thingies. 

but its damn good.

couldn't you get the same effect a little safer if you just killed them before eating them?

it wouldnt be the same.  half the fun is trying to stay alive while eating them.

no silly.  in russian roulette, you have a 1 in 6 chance of dying.  eating baby octopus is more like 1 in 100.
