today i learned – sun 29th july 2018

you know how you literally have to chow down on popcorn at the cinema? well, in south africa, it means something a tad different πŸ™ˆ

#tdil some people of south africa fame enjoy snacking on termites and calling it ‘popcorn’ 😳

i’ll be honest, i can think of nothing worse than have a little chew on some crunchy little termites 😷 but each for their own! maybe they’re actually quite nice πŸ€”

but yeah, in south africa, it’s quite normal just to pluck a little termite from the ground if you’re feeling like you want a snack 🐜 … apparently, a lot of people just eat them raw πŸ™ˆ

other people head over to the local market to buy a load … to roast them up or fry them for later 😊 as i say, it’s literally just like a popcorn based snack πŸ˜‚

wondering how they taste? well, according to one of my sources, they taste like carrot πŸ₯• which is really rather surprising?! πŸ˜‚ i’ll let you go and try them before i trust that they do … i think i’ll stick to my mixed sweet and salted goodness πŸ˜…

okay, this was slightly more pointless than i thought it would be πŸ™ˆ but it was still fun 😁

peace ✌🏻 #tdil


yesterday’s fact was pretty pointless too πŸ™ˆ looks like we’re back to this again πŸ˜‚ meh! go forth and read some other good stuff ->here<- anyway!

(image time! the header is ->here<- and the other is ->here<-)
