I believe that Arnold was in the KKK.

These are all fairly simple observations, which is why I asked if you've ever interacted with an animal. Deliberately betrayed? How else would you describe willingly shooting an animal in the head for no necessary reason? It surely wasn't an accident. The farmers all cried after, like it said in the article. They knew what they were doing was wrong. Just another example of how people can be a part of actions that they know are wrong, yet still do them. They didn't cry after for no reason, sympathy or compassion for the innocent can almost be considered as engraved in the psyche of most.

Not really, that was a damn smart spider and rat. Pig did nothing.

As people, you should be ashamed to participate in this thread. Unless you're not really people.

BTW, personhood as a philosophical concept is most likely derived from personhood as a category in Roman law.

This thread is producing intellectual starvation. I am going to re-read Charlotte's Web.

SAVE THE SEALS

Thousands of young seals have their heads bashed to death in Canada EVERY YEAR.

Much progress has been made over the years, but we are closer than ever to ending the seal hunt FOR GOOD. Be active and spread the word. Knowledge is power in the animal rights movement!

If you did that, SFers would be pining for the now-defunct seal-fur waistcoat:

Question. Is all of this an issue principally because these animals are cute? What if they were ugly and disgusting?

Who speaks for the cockroach, for example. Or the rat? Every year ugly commercial exterminators like Orkin, Terminix and Truly Nolen destroy untold millions of cockroaches, silverfish, ants, mice, rats and other household wildlife. Typically, these animals are destroyed merely for sport or for the convenience of the homeowner. No use is even made of their remains. They are not used for food or clothing, but their helpless bodies simply discarded on the whims of their murderers.

Stop this senseless murder. Roaches are one of earth's most ancient lifeforms. They were here before we were, yet we kill them as if they were meaningless. Roaches are people too.

Stop the madness.

Is this another one of those random posts for no purpose? Could you please footnote such posts so I no longer have to ask? kthanxbi.
