Scientific American: Employing the Carabao for Army Purposes in the Philippines

Scientific American is opening its 1845-1909 archive for free, but only until the end of the month. I clicked randomly and found gems like Fifty Years of Photography, the death of Michael Faraday, and the Invention of the Telephone (published a few days before Bell filed his patent). But, given the time frame, I thought that they might have some material on the Philippines. I was wrong—they published a lot of material about us. Below is a selection.

Enjoy the read! Remember: you can’t love someone don’t know, and that goes for your nation too.

They’re only free until November 30, 2011, so save them to your hard disk if you think you’d read them later on ;)

  1. As a native of Pampanga I’m used to eating fried “bugs”. It’s actually one of our famous delicacies here. It’s an acquired taste, but nevertheless it’s good. By the way, you should try eating fried stuffed frogs too. It may sound like a cliche, but it definitely tastes like chicken. :’)

  2. i like the food part history. I think people should just be opened minded about a lot of things. we’re not the only “insect” eating country. thanks for the info!
