    Could you eat it? with a clear conscience?

    I could eat it with a clear conscience, no probem... But YUK! I totally dislike the taste of it, and so I won't. But it's not my conscience bugging me, it's my palet.

    I've had live shrimp, too. In Japan. There, it's called "odori", which means, "dance"...

    It tasted better than the other shrimp I ate, however: huge prawns, still in their shells, with all their legs. When my host tried to encourage me to eat the HEADS of these monsters, I finally choked.

    I wouldn't touch blood pudding, or head cheese, or anything that I KNOW has got head gear in it. You can't find blood sausage/pudding so easily (for good reason!) in most of the States.

    But I can eat a steak veeerrrry rare.

    OK, I'm completely confused by all this. What difference does cooking a steak rare or well have to do with eating blood? When you cook it more, you just coagulate the blood so it doesn't run out. You aren't making it disappear. Therefore if you eat a well done steak, you would actually be getting more blood, just cooked blood.

    If you want meat with as little blood as possible, you have to get it from a Muslim or Jewish butcher.

    Well considering I have been known to snack on raw meat..and want my steak to "MOO" when I cut into it..I probably wouldn't have much of a problem

    I gave blood a few months ago...I enjoy watching the blood flowing thru the tube

    unimaginable! Do you chew it between your teeth or just swollow the damned thing?

    lol, I'm getting a vision of you trying to swollow a live cow the same as they swollow live shrimp.

    I donated blood on a regular basis, until I realized I was constantly wiped-out. Now I am on the list for emergency situations only. I could take a blood transfusion, but to eat any of those "tasty" delicacies - I don't think so! The gag reflex comes into play here, too.
