The things to see were pretty standard. Lots of 3D printers, plenty of liquid nitrogen demonstrations (dip a bottle of coke in the stuff and it explodes!), hands on models of solar panels and deep-space telescopes. That sort of thing. There was just one thing I didn't expect.
Crickets for lunch, anyone?
Plain crickets not your thing? We've got cajun! Parmesan and ranch, too!
I couldn't stomach it. I had to go hug this guy instead.
And then laugh at the fact that this is what you do when you're Walmart and you have a public image problem.
You bring the most fuel efficient truck in existence to show off how much you care about the community. And to advertise obnoxiously. It was pretty interesting, though.
So we got in a 20 mile bike ride, had some fun and enjoyed the day together, all without spending a penny. And without any cricket appetizers, thank you.
Could you have stomached the crickets? What's the most unusual thing you've ever eaten?
