What if humans laid eggs?

I was eating bacon and eggs this morning for breakfast. I started thinking about how an egg is basically an unfertilized chicken. Well what if humans laid eggs? Would it be acceptable to eat your own unfertilized egg? Could this solve world hunger?

Right now, there are people that eat the placenta their baby was in. So while most people don’t partake in that practice, it is still legal and sort of accepted. So what would be the difference of eating your unfertilized egg? We have to ask whether it would taste the same as a chicken egg. Maybe we wouldn’t like the taste of our own eggs. Either way, some people would and I imagine if we had been laying eggs forever, it would be acceptable to eat them, but most people wouldn’t. Imagine if human eggs did catch on. They would be really hard to farm considering females would lay one once a month. Now lets assume that when we started laying eggs, the menstrual cycle changed and we laid them as quick as chickens do. They would be easier to farm, but would still be really expensive to buy. Eating your own would cost nothing, but what if you could buy them at the grocery store or order them at a restaurant. I don’t think many woman would be up to giving their eggs away. But if they were to be paid exorbitant amounts, I’m sure a few would. Especially those with financial problems.

There are two issues with this. It could become a human rights issue. There are sperm banks, but people aren’t using that to be sold for consumption. So would you only have people donating or could it be people’s jobs. If it is someone’s job to produce eggs for human consumption, I’m sure there would be some sort of group against it. Probably feminists. This could cause all kinds of controversy and the whole process would probably be shut down. Issue two: would the quality of egg depend on living conditions of the person. I imagine a homeless person that wanted to donate her eggs might not have eggs that taste the same as a woman that eats healthy and lives a stress-less life. Of course without either of those issues, you would still have the FDA regulate the process, and we all know that women don’t like to be regulated by old men.

On the issue of solving world hunger, if women produced them as quickly as chickens, you might could give them to the hungry. Hungry women could produce their own, but that wouldn’t be enough for themselves or their families. So unless you had a majority of women donate their eggs to a small group of people, it wouldn’t solve world hunger.

Speaking of chickens, what happened to the days of most families having small farms to provide for themselves and to sell the excess to pay for other things?

Joan Rivers Stranded!

I don’t know if you have heard yet, but Joan Rivers got stranded in Costa Rica recently. The woman at the desk wouldn’t let her board the plane because she had two different names in her passport. Her passport reads, Joan Rosenberg AKA Joan Rivers, Rosenberg was her late husbands name. She was stranded, could not use her credit card, and only had $100. Luckily there was another worker that felt sorry for her and drove her to the main airport.

With stories like this popping up all over the place, it is a wonder as many people fly as they do. Ever since this latest terrorist attempt, airport security has gotten stricter. Many people are being patted down, and do you know who they are? They are just average day Americans with kids that are flying to Disney World, the beach, or to see their families. I don’t mean to be racist, but why must security be as tight for people that check a bag per person, have 5 people traveling, including kids, and heading toward Orlando. In case they haven’t noticed, the latest terrorist attack was suspicious from the beginning. It was one foreign man, traveling by himself, he didn’t check any bags, and barely had any carry-on luggage if any at all, besides the bomb. That is the kind of person that needs to be checked more thoroughly.

When I travel, I carry a laptop, video camera, DSLR camera, and various equipment to go along. When I was going through the San Antonio airport, they had to check my backpack because they thought I had a weapon. I was pulled over to the side and the woman unzipped my bag. She said, “will anything cut me if I stick my hand in there.” What kind of question is that? It turns out they were wondering what my monopod was. They thought it was a bicycle pump. My question was, what the heck would I do with a bicycle pump to blow up a plane?

The point is that born Americans are being treated like terrorists, and yet the terrorists still get through the search. Something needs to change, and it needs to be done now.

Give you up, give you up
Never gonna give
Never gonna give, give you up

They Finally Found the Flood in North Carolina

They found these unidentified life forms in a sewer in North Carolina.(Creepy) They look like brains that have just grown and latched onto the walls.

I believe that it is a bunch of bacteria that has grown together with poop and other stuff(female bi-products) to form the organism. It could really be anything. But I have no idea what it could be. I really hope they do testing to figure out what it is. :<

I don’t know if you know but there is this site called Fluther.com.

Basically what you do is ask questions and get answers. You may think, “Well can’t I just go to Yahoo Answers?”. Well the Fluther community is way better. If you spend a few days using it you will start seeing the same people asking questions and answering them. You can also add certain people to your own Fluther so it is basically like a friends list.

They also have this thing called Lurve. It is just a number you get for participating in the community. You get 1 point for each consecutive day you visit the site. For the rest of the points you have to depend on other users. If you ask a really good question or give a very good answer and another user thinks the same then they can mark it as being good and you get 5 more Lurve points.

When setting up your account it asks you for your hobbies and other things you know about. It will use that information to find questions that are perfect for you. Then if you run out of questions you can alternatively view all questions. Once you answer a question it will follow that question and each time it gets a reply you will be given an alert.

I started last year but didn’t get into it. I went back a few days ago and I am now addicted. You should definitely go check it out. If i missed anything please comment and I will add it.

Benny Lava Obsessed!

As you know, I recently posted the Benny Lava video to the site. Well I also downloaded it and put it on my iPod. I know, you think I’m crazy don’t you. I have to say that it is a really great song. Just listening to it makes me happy inside. I was playing Call of Duty: World at War yesterday and the song started playing. I could almost sing along with all the words. “I want to see you pee on us tonight… Now poop on them Oliver… I fought a barber man.” I just have to give a big tip of my hat to whomever the guy was that put the lyrics to the song. Thank you for all the good times you have provided to me and the many others that enjoy that video as much as I do.
