    There are some things I'd never try (say, the testicles/eyeballs of another animal... the thought of eating those is too disgusting for me).

    I think I'd try most small insects. I've had crickets and maggots before, when I was in Thailand last year. The maggots were not so great, but the crickets were actually pretty good. There's also a sweets shop where I live that sells salted ants and lollipops with a scorpion in the centre. Would definitely try those.

    Other than insects, I would say the 'craziest' thing I've had are alligator nuggets. Really not that different from chicken nuggets.

    I never liked octopus until I went to a wedding in Spain where they had a woman cooking it fresh on a little bbq with paprika and I got completely addicted to it. That and the jamon.

    I like the bit where the octopus sticks to your tongue.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Yeah lets pour an acidic sause on a skinned helpless animal and make fun of how it's "dancing". I'm sure they tell people it's just muscle reflex.

    I think I'd rather eat Octomom.

    Well, it is technically dead.

    I mean, I'd try it...

    Is it not dead? Brain removed?

    The dish comes with the head cut into small sashimi slices and the rest joins as a side plate once the “performance” is complete.
    Not sure how I'd handle that with chopsticks...

    From the Youtube comments (you can take that with a grain of salt, though most articles give the same explanation)
    The reason why the sauce causes the tentacles to move after it is dead is because the nerves in the muscles don't stop firing until long after brain death. Sodium molecules react with the muscle fibers causing them to contract (like when they use sodium in the ER to try to jumpstart a heart which is a muscle) The muscles contract causing the tentacles to kick. You can also see this done with fresh froglegs being salted.
