Thread: which one?

    Default which one?

    okay so there's this big beetle in my backyard that's stuck on it's back... i tried to flip it over but it just keeps twitching around until it ends up back on it's back. which do you consider the more "humane" way to deal with it, killing it to put it out of it's misery (which assumes that it's in misery) or letting it go it's natural course to death (however long that may take)?


    I ended up letting it be... idk... like maybe it's got some stuff to work out before it dies...

    i know... it's silly personifying a bug like that, but i can't help it.

    I think you made the right choice, killing it will prevent it from having an awesome DMT trip anyways if you want to get really deep about it.

    I had a similar experience recently - there was this dumbass but very pretty cotton harlequin bug that really liked me for some reason - it crawled onto my hair, then after I flicked it onto the ground, it spent 15 minutes righting itself, then crawled onto my shoe... then after a second flick, it made its way onto my knee, so I transported it onto a tree behind me. Then, ten minutes later, when I swung my bag around in a corridor on the 5th level of a building it fell onto the ground, upside down of course. I kind of felt like I should've taken it outside but our windows don't open, and 5 floors... I don't think an insect's life is worth the electricity it would take to take the lift back up. So I left it, and ten minutes later when I walked past again it was a splat, and I felt really bad, even though it was really Darwinism in action.

    Few pointers:

    Every death (and birth) is 'Darwinism in action.'

    It is unclear whether insects feel pain or get the DMT trip Raver spoke of.

    Well really, anything you do or say is Darwinism in action.
