    Craig Larson tells the story of an old desert nomad who awoke one night to a growling stomach. He lit a candle and began eating dates from a bowl beside his bed. He took a bite from one end and saw a worm in it, so he threw it from the tent. He bit into the second date, found another worm, and threw it away as well.
