Today, while doing my job as a cart clerk, a gentleman went around the parking lot and picked some trash up, trying to help out. Faith in humanity: +1. About an hour later I saw a woman pick a bug off of her windshield and eat it. Faith in humanity: -200. FML

And that's all it is to some people. Honestly that person eating a bug is not cause enough to loose faith -200. OPs dramatic. Bugs are protein anyways.

That completely depends on the environment. Living in a civilized country that provides ready access to much cleaner (and albeit better tasting) food and yet choosing to ingest a live insect off your windshield (God knows where else it has been) is a valid reason to LOSE* a certain amount of faith.

67, By that logic you could never do enough good deeds to redeem the negative scale anyway. This was worded so badly that it just makes the OP look like a pretentious douche.

It's one thing to et bugs that are meant to be eaten like when they are caught. It's completely different to take one of a windshield and then eat it. You'd think the thing would be a bit squished.

Around the world, bugs are eaten by literally billions of people each year. And why not? Lots of them are pretty good for you.

Consider this: Most westerners will eat a cow but won't eat a grasshopper--both of these animals eat grass. On the other hand, we pay a premium to eat crabs and lobsters--these are ten-legged monsters that eat slime from the bottom of the ocean. So why the hypocrisy about eating things like grasshoppers?
