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.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
