>But acquiring the serum to feed it is fucked up. In order to get fetal bovine serum you need a pregnant cow, then you kill her, and then you take out her still living fetus, and then you suck fluids out of its still pumping heart.

There are hundreds of thousands of litres of this stuff going around already. It's used in more science than you probably realize. Farmers aren't sending some prime pregnant cows to be killed to harvest it, it's simply that sometimes a culled old cow happens to have a fetus inside. In dairy herds in particular, it's common to have "carryover cows" who did not become pregnant and who get sent out for grazing elsewhere often on beef farms to run with a bull there. They'll become fattened up away from the milking operation, and hopefully get in calf again, but if not they are most often culled. And a vet scanning can miss an early pregnancy. Or if not so tightly managed, they might just be sent away due to their old age without anyone knowing or caring that they were in calf.
>eating other animals is part of human nature
rape and slavery probably are too. Your point?

One is behavioural, the other is physiological, why the fuck do people still use this shit argument?
>One is behavioural, the other is physiological
So? And is that even true in the case of rape?
>why the fuck do people still use this shit argument?
because you don't have a real answer to it. just because something is "human nature" doesn't mean that it must be tolerated.
Behaviours are not necessarily integral to our survival but our physiology is and it takes hundreds of thousands if not millions of years to change it, whereas behaviours can be adapted to much more easily. What we needed to eat 200,009 years ago is what we need to eat now for optimal health.

Also it's a major assumption that rape was how the majority of humans reproduced. You would not be able to maintain a functioning tribe if rape was the norm. Have you seen what they do to rapists in shithole countries?

If the theory that all life comes from single cells is correct than at some point there had to be creatures that could both see single cell life while not being single cell life. If humans can see ants then surely at some point in time some creature the size of an ant could at least detect and see bacteria.
Okay but do smaller animals experience time at a different pace than bigger animals
You ever notice how fast ants move?
I don't think eyes work like that you don't see smaller things with smaller eyes
they'd almost instantly freeze to death because of square cube law.

Breddy nice.
I had an amusing hypothetical scenario pop into my head recently: imagine a sapient alien race whose males use colorful, elaborate display structures to attract females, images of such displays would probably serve as of softcore porn for females in that species, but to humans it would just be "wow, cool colors!". So you'd have a whole bunch of humans displaying art and pictures all over their homes and businesses depicting what is basically the alien equivalent of a dude jacking off while flexing.
Why has sheather become the magnum opus of spec evo? I see dozens of retards commissioning him and it's laughable how little effort he puts into drawings that he's paid to make
>magnum opus
an artist's most popular work is rarely their magnum opus.

post a fox eating, playing, sleeping, or running, you're normal - but post one shitting or mating and people suddenly have questions

Good point though. Fur can't be green but if preds are colorblind anyway orange looks the same.
but they should
wolves are taller so it would have to be male wolf on female fox. think she could even fit him?
It depends on how elastic the vixen's vagina is. And how much space in her womb she has to prevent the Wolf from hurting internal organs.

those dogs might be too challenging bro, start off with a nice easy dog like a husky.
Start with one. If one seems simple enough, move to two. If you're doing okay, you're keeping on top of daily upkeep and finances, and you desperately want another, go to three. I had three for a couple of years, before the old fellow passed. The first month with the youngest was pretty rough, largely because any first month with any puppy is pretty rough what with the house-breaking and all the foundational training you have to do, but I was helped out by the fact the eldest two were stable, settled individuals.

My sister has a dog. She's thinking about a second one. Her current dog is a nervous wreck that poops from anxiety within the first 10 minutes of being left by itself and is incredibly sound sensitive. I hate when I'm obliged to dogsit him because he requires about 400% the attention and supervision my dogs do, which is just incredibly exhausting. If I was her, I wouldn't get another dog until that current dog has passed away. It's not my place to run her life, though, and if she has the time and energy to manage, who am I to argue?
Fuck you bitch, you and your little cuckdog handbag pooch. I'll raise my dog how i like and this makes them strong. Go back to r*ddit
My dog that recently passed away cost and average of $15k per year to keep healthy for the last 8 years of his life. Better make it $200,000 in savings, just to be sure. You never know.

yeah she does tend to play on the rough side with other puppies. However I've taken her with older, bigger dogs and she is completely submissive.
She's rough with the husky since they know each other and thats how they play, and i think the best corrections are the ones that come from the dogs
