    EDIT: supposedly pretty tasty.
    Maybe they're not economically viable to farm. Shells are terribly "expensive", as biologists say. That is, it costs a huge amount of food energy to grow armor. You'd be feeding them to grow shells that only get thrown out. And with 60-year life spans, who knows how long until they reach adulthood? This is why we should be growing meat in tanks without brains. Perfectly doable today.

    That was someone else taunting the drivers. For all we know, those women could actually be recovering hicks trying to escape and become urbanites. Hicks are granted an invisible driver's license at age 5 to drive anything with 2 or more wheels. Each year after that, they gain something with another wheel. Life is about pretending to drive things with more wheels. They also don't fear death, you see, because of the protective "fifth wheel" (the steering wheel). There may even be a "sixth wheel"--the imaginary vehicle they want to own someday that forces them to stay alive*. I only point out the up side of hicks because, after all,

    But don't worry. There are always Greater Hicks. It's all relative, you see. Take these three tests:

    1-Do you call mosquitoes "skeets"?
    2-Do you call cucumbers "cukes"?
    3-*Do you look at Auto Trader daily to find that black and white pic of a particular 70's muscle car and say to yourself, "That's the one. That's the one I want to own someday." ?

    If you answered "no" to all, then congratulations--you are not a Greater Hick. You can sleep well after looking at those nice clean nails.

    Perhaps there's a misconception of the term predator. For me, a predator is an animal which eats mainly meat. A cat is a predator, for example. Are you perhaps talking about man-eating animals, some dinosaur or the alien from the Predator movie with Arnie?

    Not all meat eaters are predators. Some are scavengers. Some are actually bacteria

    Dinosaurs were never man-eaters.

    Pedantry? I'm in!

    Yes, a predator is an animal which is hunting.

    I haven't written that dinosaurs were man-eaters, you just misunderstood what I wrote

    The movie Predator. It's a huge classic in America to the point where there are no other "predator" meanings.

    I reserve all my slipperiness for conversations with Leo.

    Those Coconut Crabs are Predators and carrion eaters.
