Raw fish and warm rice wine, the Japanese laugh themselves silly over our stupidty for paying for it.

Ever eat a beating heart? It’s really neat for a few minutes. I’ve done it with some large fish. I’ll do it again. Got one of my daughters to do it, freaked her out, but she wants to do it again.

"Darwin at work."

Indeed! "But I didn't know!" just doesn't cut it in this world. Failure to engage brain is at work here.

Blowfish balls? What’s that like?

They couldn’t be that big for the most part, could they? How do you eat them, like caviar?

men ordered sashimi and grilled blowfish testicles

Them's got to be tiny little things to grill, like the size of half a pine nut, I'd guess. Reminds me of the old joke:

Q: Have you ever smelled mothballs?

A: Sure, yeah.

Q: How do you get their little legs apart?
