Who Fucking Cares?

British Scientists Say Fish DO Feel Pain

Yes, that's right, boils and ghouls...THIS is what scientists are working on. Not the cures for cancer, or plague, not how to irrigate land and make arable farm fields for starving countries, not trying to raise the education standards of the world and just maybe help us all get a little more enlightened and bring us one step closer to getting off this rock, but studying to see whether FISH actually feel PAIN.

Was there really any doubt? This is a living, breathing, intelligent creature, with skin, and organs, and whatnot. Basic biology and evolution tells us that it will feel pain. Did we NEED to waste time and money on this study? Of course not...but it was easier to do than the IMPORTANT ones, so someone had to do it, so they could get their grant money, buy a new Porsche and a beach house in Tahiti, and publish a paper or something. You cannot, CANNOT tell me that this study really took all that much cash to perform.

Curious as to whether an animal feels pain? Kick it, you'll have your answer; case closed, move on. No, I'm not advocating kicking an animal, I'm making a point. And let's not forget that of course PETA had to use this info to rank on fishermen. As if they are sitting in the boat, drinking a beer, baiting the hook, and saying to each other "You know, maybe this isn't nice...I bet that hook in the mouth really hurts these fish. Let's get outta here, I'll cook us up some nice soyburgers." Sorry, but the pain of the fish is the LAST thing on a fisherman's mind...as well it should be.

Welcome to the food chain, motherfuckers. You're at the top, get used to it.
