in reply to My favorite food for feasting:

My feasting preference is dead fowl parts, although I also enjoy feasting on dead cow parts, dead lamb parts, dead fish parts, dead crustaceans, and some forms of dead molluscs.

I've not eaten dead camel parts, nor dead equine parts. I have, however, feasted upon dead rabbit parts, dead goat parts, and (a mistake) dead squirrel parts,

I draw the line well before live monkey brains. Indeed, I tend to prefer my meats dead (no oysters!) and cooked (nor steak tartare). Live monkey brains violates both those rules.


At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.
