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

[rebelmouse-image 18355728 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355729 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355730 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355731 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355732 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355733 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355734 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355736 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Dinosaurs

[rebelmouse-image 18355737 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Beavers

[rebelmouse-image 18355739 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355740 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Toads

[rebelmouse-image 18355741 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Snails

[rebelmouse-image 18355742 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355743 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Chickens

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

Starfish

[rebelmouse-image 18355744 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355745 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355747 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Bulldogs

[rebelmouse-image 18355748 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18355749 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

People Describe The Darkest Thing They've Ever Done That They Don't Regret

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
