Cockroach. One of the most hated crawling insect. Just thinking about it is gross to the max. But if put in a situation where you are dirt poor and have nothing to eat, and being sorrounded everywhere by them crawlers as you live in a sewerage tunnel, will you cook and eat them out of hunger?

Ewwww, I have a VERY weak stomach so I highly doubt that I would be able to eat a roach (regardless of the circumstances). I'm just thinking about it and i've got the chills. I also have a huge fear of bugs. My palms get sweaty and I start bugging out when I see them so I really doubt I would be able to eat one if I can't even stand to be around them.

I understand your situation Melissa528. Your weak stomach and your natural fear of bugs will make you an unlikely person to eat a cockroach for survival

I absolutely hate cockroaches 100%, they scare the crap out of me. I honestly dont think I could eat a cockroach, I think I would die of starvation only because I have a weak stomach so if its nasty my stomach wont hold it down. EWWWWWWWWW!

Gorgeous24, I would suppose you would die from starvation due to a weak stomach. But how about a cooked tunnel rat, do you think your stomach will hold?

I would say yes, too. Survival is the key. This actually is happening to some very poor families in our country.Sometimes they would eat tunnel rats just to survive

yes, if i am in that situation. I am already used to living in a dirty place so it will just be easy for me to eat one... I have just watch something over national geographic channel that some people in Taiwan are playing with cockroaches and they eat it also...And they say that cockroaches is not that dirty. It is only in our mind that they are gross.

Oh my.... I'm so afraid of cockroches that I can't even imagine myself getting closer to them... I'd rather try to find some other insect if there's REALLY no way out! hahaha But cockroches... Not even for all money in the whole world I'd eat one!
