Agenda 21 : Delicious Bug Slurry Big Gulp

Critical roles in global management will continue to eat grass-fed burgers and fresh produce. Everybody else will survive on liquified puree mealworms.

Actually, I am dying to do a special Vault-OS project on a custom designed temperature controlled feeder tank for mealworms to use in permaculture feeding fish. I just wrote it down on a potential list of "killer apps" for Vault-OS I want to work on as soon as I release open source. Permaculture fish in a small system will grow like crazy on mealworms and duckweed, apparently. There is possibly no better way to keep the fish fed on low energy harvested food than mealworms which are also very renewable and low maintenance.

That guy with the 'hola ghost' shirt in the link looks very neanderthal.

Interesting article:

"One of the biggest question marks hanging over our understanding of human evolution has been the emergence of the genus Homo. This is the group of hominids (great apes) that includes our own species, Homo sapiens, as well as other, extinct species of human like Neanderthals, Homo erectus, and Homo habilis.

In March of this year, the journal Science published a paper describing the discovery of a 2.8 million-year-old jawbone in Ledi-Gararu, Ethiopia, that shed some light on this dark patch in our history. “It is part of a jaw; it’s not a whole skull, and it’s not a skeleton,” said Kimbel, one of the authors of the paper. But “in this time period, we celebrate the smallest advances, because we know so little.”

Fossil records in Africa between 2.5 and 3 million years ago (mya) are extremely limited."
