I fail to see your logic. Whilst some fruit flies have shown to share similar pain receptors to mammals, cockroaches do not. Many insects have been found to experience "pain", but not in the same way a mammal does. Their reaction to "pain" is basically "run away" or "escape". They don't roll around in agony like we do; they try to run. Flip a cockroach over and watch; they keep trying to run. You are basing your "rant" concerning Daniel Bryan over something petty. Also, if i were crushed by an object and killed instantly; Would i feel pain? I highly doubt it.
The Nazi's caused Distress and slow, agonizing deaths to millions of people. Daniel Bryan killed a cockroach. Hardly the same thing.
I just killed a spider for wanting to keep warm in my vicinity; throw me my Swastika armband and iron cross.
To clarify; a cockroach is NOT an animal, it's an insect.
This is just way over to top to comprehend. Fox News might have work for you mate.
Also one rule for one, and another for another group? That sounds like PETA. They detest animal experimentation; regardless of whether it's to test reactions of various chemicals and cosmetics, or if it's testing that could help another human being. However, Ingrid Newkirk has stated many times that PETA also "ethically" kill animals because keeping them alive would cost too much money.
PETA Senior Vice President MaryBeth Sweetland on her use of insulin, which was tested on animals:
“I’m an insulin-dependent diabetic. Twice a day I take synthetically manufactured insulin that still contains some animal products — and I have no qualms about it … I’m not going to take the chance of killing myself by not taking insulin. I don’t see myself as a hypocrite. I need my life to fight for the rights of animals.
–Glamour, January 1990
That is a hypocrite. Killing a cockroach and "laughing" isn't. He has in no way gone against what he believes in; which is the essence of hypocracy.
