That is....if she posts at all.

lol

I really dont understand people that are anti-animal testing...

I can understand that if there are alternatives, you should use them... but heck: do they really want that all medicin etc is tested on humans?

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

LOL...

True enough. Same thing happen in Malaysia.

They can protest animal testing, without knowing many drugs and medicine they used in their medication were animal tested.

They should have stop their children getting into University as well, this is because usually universities does equipped with animal testing lab.....LOL... petiton for anti-university, anti-postgrads???

Okey, did they suggest alternatives rather than just protest?

LOL
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

of course it's parody...and some or many of the "real" animal rights activists are imo "reality satires" and their actions too (and some even more harmful to animals than any experiment).
Anyway, for an entomologist it's interesting that only vertebrates (according to laws), and often only cute vertebrates (for animal rights activists) are debated and meant...I'm quite sure that insects (or worms, or crustaceans, or molluscs, or...) also feel pain.

well then I'd have posted it in the Animal and Zoology section and not in the Lab joke section here :lol:
and I guess more or less all animals feel pain...
IMO the question is how they realise it i.e. if it's a unpleasant, annoying feeling (as we consider/feel it) or if it's just an information like e.g. a cold temperature perception...but this is a neuro-physiological and philosophical question...

will read it later...but I forgot it's not only pain, but the "right to live" etc, some activists want to concede to all animals...but then why not all organisms anyway?

Dr H, I agree with you.
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

<_<

This reminds me one exam I once had. It started by asking us to read the whole thing first and then answer the questions. This was followed by a long series of very difficult questions. Of course the last one was "You only need to answer this last question". It was the subject for a dissertation and you really needed the 2 hours you had.
Theory is when we know everything and nothing is working. Practice is when everything is working and nobody knows why. Here, we combine theory and practice. Nothing is working and nobody knows why.

But

You only need to answer this last question

is not a question...... :P so how can you answer this?

I have some other funny examples too about questions, but maybe we should open a new topic on this :P
