People Reveal Which Animals Would Be Most Pissed At Humanity For What We've Done

We do a lot of weird stuff to animals that they probably wouldn't enjoy very much if they could understand. We don't just mean using them for food or food products, either. We really want to know who the first person was to see silk worms shoot fibers from their butts and think to themselves:

"I could wear that."

One Reddit user asked:

If any animal were to find out what humans use it for, which organism would be the most distraught/horrified?

and we picked a few that really made us think. If you're a sensitive soul, brace yourself before clicking next. We're about to talk about beaver butt juice, lambskin condoms and legs growing out of eyeballs.

Fruit Flies

Fruit flies. I used to work in a genetics lab and regularly made their limbs grow out of their eyes. Our work was on developmental patterning genes [called homeobox genes]. They're genes that are expressed in a specific spatial-temporal pattern so your body knows where to begin growing limbs vs eyes, for example. Controlling those genes means you can grow body parts anywhere. It was incredibly easy to do too.

Cows

Cows. We eat their meat and drink the milk that is for their young, who we also eat and consider a delicacy. We wear their skin, and use their body parts for just about everything. Never forget the first condoms were intestines! Natural sausage casings too:

"You chopped me up with plants then stuffed my muscles into my intestines?!"

Silk Worms

Silk Worm would be saying WTF why are you using my thread to make everything?

"That came from my a**, bro! What are you doing?"

Rhinos

Rhinos.

"You killed off my entire species because some of you think the powder created by our horn can get you an erection?!?!?!!?!"

Hoseshoe Crabs

Horseshoe crabs.

Their blood has a chemical in it that is used to test pharmaceuticals for bacterial contamination. The crabs are harvested, fed just enough to survive, bled out a certain amount, and put back. Some of them die.

Their blood is blue and they are such weird-looking things that pictures of the harvesting labs look like something from a sci-fi movie.

Sheep

Sheep.

"You eat my young, you wear my fur, you use my young's skin for clothing and accessories, eat my intestines and you boil my head and place it on a platter?!"

Cats

Cats would be horrified to find out that we lowly humans think of THEM as OUR pets.

Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs, I mean come on. All the petroleum products? Lube? Condoms? Good lord, they would be horrified if they weren't extinct.

Beavers

Beavers, we kill them not only for their fur but for their raspberry flavored anal secretions. Beaver butt juice farms are a real thing.

Pigs

Pigs. We use their skin to make things for Tom Brady to throw.

Toads

Pretty sure that if toads knew we licked them to trip balls they would not be to keen on the idea.

Snails

Snails. back when ppl used their mucous secretions to color their clothes in tyrian purple. same with insects who had to give their lives for the color carmin red.. dont know how i would feel if someone would crush, boil and dry my body parts only in order to have the fanciest looking toga at the colosseum

Chickens

Chickens

**You stuff us full of hormones so we age at a faster rate, then you eat us **

Starfish

Starfish.

"You know, I've come to accept my fate. I'm gonna be the best goddamn starfish I can! Whoever eats me is gonna have a great meal!"

"Uh, actually, we're just gonna dry you out and sell you as a decoration."

Kopi Luwaks

Kopi Luwak, the cat that sh*ts out coffee beans. We dig through their turds to find the beans and then turn the booty-beans into a drink.

Worms

Worms: we dig them up from their homes, impale them on giant hooks and throw them underwater as bait for massive predators.

Bulldogs

I think bulldogs would be ticked off.

"What? You bred me on purpose to have a flat face so I have breathing problems and get hyperthermia easily? And gibbled legs prone to hip dysplasia? And such big heads and screwy hips that most females have to give birth via C-sections? What the Christ?!"

Mice

Mice. We have done countless experiments on them. We've even altered their genes to make them more susceptible to cancer. There's even a statue in Russia to honor how important lab mice have been to humans.

H/T: Reddit

Insults come in many forms, most of them involving swear words or similar affronts. However, there is something to be said for a truly cutting remark made without the use of such language.

Some favorites are always old Victorian slang and insults. They just hit different. Something about telling an a-hole “you sir are an unlicked cub and your wife a sausage wallet" is just more satisfying. Although we do not recommend going around insulting people, the list of swear-free insults below will certainly get a chuckle.

Aging is a sneaky process. Most of us don't realize how old we've gotten until we find we are no longer able to do things the way we used to with ease when we were younger.

Like it or not, we've all met a liar or two. Some lies aren't so obvious either, and if the individual has a habit of lying regularly, then that's a sign that they could have a larger problem. Some lies are more innocent––we know those as "little white lies"––and typically don't harm anyone.

And some lies are just obvious and absurd––even entertaining. Why do people say these things? In truth (ha), the reasons might be complicated and the individual might not even be aware. We heard all about them after Redditor Mobile_Sturgeon asked the online community,

"What was the most obvious lie you've ever heard?"
