Every species pollutes, but only one species tries to stop it.
Every species gets sick, but only one can figure out why and stop it.
We can't run very fast, yet we are the fastest living things on the planet.
We're not very strong, yet we can move mountains.
We have no wings, yet we've flown higher than any animal can imagine.
Our voices aren't very loud, yet we can talk to our brothers on the other side of the planet, even further than that.
I have seen more than the keenest of hawks, gone faster than the quickest of all cheetahs, moved more than the strongest ox, and I'm only a sixteen-year-old human.
No species is perfect, but we are the only ones who are trying, and you misanthropic ************* think we are a disease on the face of planet earth, as if we are not mother nature's offspring, but an awkward orphan that was not adopted, but who simply forced it's way into the family. The house to man is the web to the spider.
What you're living in was once in the ground, it was all apart of the earth once, and it still ******* is, the pollutants in the air were once in the soil, and when the day comes that the last bit of green vanishes from this rock, it will still be far more spectacular than it was before life developed on it.
There is an infinity of beautiful secrets hidden throughout the universe, from the smallest of particles, to the most massive celestial structures that your mind can barely imagine, these natural marvels would never be appreciated without us.
You think humans are the only ones causing extinction? They're not. But we are the only ones attempting to stop it. The earth is better off with us.

Jesus ******* christ I hate this entire copypasta it is ******* worthless piles of ******** .

Humans are the only species that pollutes
Humans are the only species causing extinction

Humans produce chemicals that will remain in the earth for years and years to come, poisoning and polluting the creatures who live in it. Chemicals that would never exist otherwise.

The earth is better off without us. We have caused more damage than we have ever made attempts to repair, and any egotistical **** who thinks otherwise is a ******* egotistical **** .

Human beings are the ******* bane of this world. Yea, I may be a hypocrite for posting this on a computer, but it isn't like I have a ******* choice, I didn't choose to be born to this poisonous ******* species.

Animals don't imagine. It's a culturalistic thing. Animals have only an awareness of common subjects. Your dog that loves you only loves you because of the love you show him.Though emotions can be found, the use of those emotions only benefit survival. If we broke the Human function down into three divisions, spirit(culture), mind(Feelings), and body(physical), animals would only have the latter two. they only think, imitate, learn, and survive. this is why they have no sense of humor, no culture and definitely no imagination. so in a sense, they don't even know they are eating the planet and ******** it out.

Yo man I like my life comfortable and polluting...also do I find it fascinating that we can do all of that that we can but yo I really don´t see how u can say the earth is better of with us.
We´r kind of consuming it with all these things that we do.

Also about the first point I just want to say that pollution is nothing bad... as long as it is in small quantities. When animals pollute which they have´d for millions of years its okay because the nature can re-absorb it in a particular rate.... however when we humans pollute we pollute so much that it exceeds the rate of which it is re absorbed and so just accumulates into our atmosphere....

Im not saying we should kill ourselves to save nature...cuz fak that, we are great beings perhaps the greatest beings in the whole of space so far, but being such great beings we should acknowledge the fact that our existence is not always of benefit our own planet and its other inhabitants

If it's trash pollution or spewing dangerous chemicals in the air that's definitely bad. Also pollution of water is obviously a problem. I noticed you hinted about global warming. Not only is global warming ******** , but even if it was real humans contribute less than 1% of greenhouse gasses. Nothing we do could change it. But, we are also the dominant species. We rule earth with an iron fist. So **** everyone who thinks the human race is bad or a plague. They can all go kill themselves and I will continue to do whatever the **** I want.

#54 to #22 - jagenblitz (08/14/2013) [-]
Yeah I'm about to be "that guy", and I apologize, but this seems as appropriate a post as any.

1) How do other species pollute? If we're talking about invasive species, lets keep in mind that humans are responsible for that. ******** in the woods isn't pollution either, it's the opposite. Regardless, humans are the only species that pollute on such a level that we have to "try" in the first place.

2) That isn't true at all. Many species deliberately eat specific plants to ward off disease and parasites. Species of fish will go to special "cleaning stations" near reefs to have smaller fish and/or shrimp clean parasites off their skin. These smaller species are generally left unharmed despite being easy meals and even going inside the larger fishes' mouths.

3-7) All true.

8) We're the only species who have to try. Other species, for the most part at least, fit naturally into the balance and cycle of nature. Humans, on the other hand, actively disturb and destroy it. We try only because we have no other choice.

9) Just because something was once part of the soil doesn't make it okay when it's burned and thrown into the air in vast amounts. By that logic volcanoes are harmless.

10) They don't need to be appreciated. That also assumes that we're the only intelligent life out there.

11) We're trying to stop it because the extinctions we cause are entirely unnatural and upsetting the balance of things, in a way that cannot be recovered from like normal extinction events until we are gone or majorly fix our ways. So no, the Earth really isn't better off with us.

I'm not the type of person who hates humanity, but this is one of the shallowest things I've seen on this site. The fact that the original has that many thumbs is depressing.

#188 to #54 - ryderjbudde ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
You've misunderstood. If I could cover everything I wanted to, I don't think you would have anything to go off of to prove me wrong. I am aware of all of the things you said, and the eloquence of what I wrote was the result of thinking long and hard about what people thought. Where I wasn't aloud to cover everything that I was thinking about because of the character limit, I designed a collection of sentences that I thought would inspire people to be exactly what people like you want them to be. Because believe it or not, people don't like to be told that they are by nature hateful, irresponsible, and flawed, and it's because they know that they are not this way.

People like you simply poke holes in things, tell people there's something wrong with them, and allow them to wallow in self loathing until they die as unaccomplished misanthropes who did as much harm as the uninformed. People like me consider everything that makes humanity, and then instead of forcing the flaws down people's throats, I make every ordinary human feel like a super hero because I point out that it isn't impossible for us to be great.

Do you honestly think that just because we have a mass of atrocity in our history, that it's impossible to be great? Is it impossible for us to be what the planet needs? If you asked any normal person if they were proud of the things that you criticize, they would say no, because by nature, humans strive to be the opposite. It's not in our nature to burn the world, and you know that. If it was in our nature, we would feel accomplished when we hear that climate change was caused by us.

Don't call me shallow when you missed the point of what I wrote.
"We can't run very fast, yet we are the fastest living things on the planet... No species is perfect, but we are the only ones who are trying"
I think it's funny that you are able to convince yourself that we are a negative force incapable of change yet we can do all of what I wrote about. That was the message.
User avatar #189 to #188 - jagenblitz (10/20/2013) [-]
Firstly I'm kinda bewildered that you just responded to a two month old comment, but okay.

Secondly, no I didn't. You wrote a bunch of sentences that were simply wrong. It doesn't matter whether you could cover more because the very basis of a large part of what you wrote is factually wrong. There is no "eloquence" in what you wrote, because it is clear that you did not, in fact, think long and hard about anything. If you were aware of what I said you wouldn't have wrote it in the first place.

Lol that armchair psychology. You wrote a bunch of shallow ******** on a content aggregation site and now you have a ego because it got a bunch of thumbs. You know what the top comment is right now? "Admin's a faggot". Make people feel like superhero's? Get your head out of your ass. You wrote an irrelevant comment on an irrelevant website. Everyone who thumbed your original post has forgotten about it. And you.

Please point out where I said it was impossible to be great. I'll wait. And be what the planet needs? The planet does not need us, except perhaps to fix the damage that has already been done. We are not essential to Earth. Period.

I think it's funny that you think I actually "missed the point" when you completely strawmanned my argument. I said nothing about humanity being "a negative force incapable of change". I simply pointed out that the majority of your little speech was factually ******** .

You managed to make a bunch of idiots starry-eyed for perhaps a good five minutes. Congratulations. Don't talk to me like you actually know anything.
#190 to #189 - ryderjbudde ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
Firstly, ideas don't age. What I write about is very important to me, so there's nothing wrong with checking up on the people who decide to quote me.

Secondly, as I was trying to say, it doesn't matter if it was correct or not, it's purpose wasn't to be factual, it was to be inspiring and useful, and it was moreso those two things than your reply was, which seemed to only serve the purpose of bringing people down and making you look smart, two things that serve no use. You said I was shallow because you only thought about the things that I wrote, rather than why I wrote it. And by the way, eloquence means, "Fluent or persuasive speaking or writing," which my speech obviously had if it accrued more thumbs on a comedy website than you could with fifty comments, and it wasn't even funny. You might not see the meaning of thumbs, but that doesn't change the fact that because I got almost six hundred thumbs, that means almost six hundred people would have been willing to applaud me in an auditorium.

But I obviously didn't know I was going to get thumbs in the first place, and if I continue to reply two months later, that means I don't really even care about thumbs. Like I said, it's about the idea. And obviously not everyone has forgotten about it if I'm still being quoted seven months later. And this guy isn't the only one who has quoted me. On my original post, people told me it made them feel like superheroes, so my head isn't in my ass.

Even if all I managed to do was make a bunch of idiots feel starry-eyed, (it's clear that's not all I did,) you're the one who is practically saying, "I may have missed the point, but at least I was able to show everyone how smart I was by relaying facts that everyone kinda knew anyway." You think those "idiots" didn't already know what you said? You think that's not common knowledge? It's not about being ******* factual, it's about making people want to be awesome so that something actually happens.

Better than insulting people.
User avatar #191 to #190 - jagenblitz (10/20/2013) [-]
Inspiring and useful? You delude people with a bunch of ******** . You know how people change? By recognizing that mistake have been made, and that problems exist. You wanna know why people don't change? Because people like you feed them ******** about how great they already are. You make change by facing the goddamn truth.

You think getting thumbs makes you eloquent? After you just said thumbs mean nothing, you take a shot at my ability to get thumbs? Did you miss when I said the current top comment is "Admin is a faggot"? Christ you're retarded. Six hundred people would be willing to applaud in an auditorium? This is the ******* internet. Half the people here probably don't even go outside on a regular basis. You think a comment popular on the internet is the same as being popular in real life? Holy **** .

Or you just want to protect your ego and you "eloquent" writing. You think that some comment on a website actually means that much? People go into feels posts all the damn time, talk about how much they cried, and then five minutes later they're posting faggot or ****** jokes. You wrote a bunch of shallow ******** on a completely irrelevant website, yet you're talking as if you wrote something profound that actually changed lives. So yes, you have your head in your as. This guy reposting your relevant comment for thumbs is no different than me reposting a funny picture I found elsewhere. It doesn't make it special. And I hope you realize that if people could suddenly see our comments, you would probably be getting red thumbs right now.

No, that is all you did. Your comment was no different than the feels posts I mentioned. People go in, feel, and then forget five minutes later until the somebody reposts it. You didn't change anything.

And yes, it's pretty clear that none of them knew that. You sure as hell didn't. And if you actually think stating the truth is insulting then you will never know anything. And you will never make a difference.

#193 to #191 - ryderjbudde ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
This is what you just wrote. Don't call me egotistical, and don't call me retarded.

I wonder what is wrong with you if you can't tell the difference between insulting and truthful and if you think someone's speech is an order for you to get angry.
User avatar #194 to #193 - jagenblitz (10/20/2013) [-]
I call it as I see it. If you don't want to be called a duck then don't quack like one. And if you don't want to be insulted then get off the internet.

Your initial speech did not make me angry, hence why my original comment was quite civil. What annoys me is you getting on a high horse and proclaiming that spewing ******** is actually going to change anything, much less on FunnyJunk. And then you have the audacity to strawman my argument while calling your trash eloquent, and make me out as the bad guy for speaking the truth?

Please.
#195 to #194 - ryderjbudde ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
Okay buddy.

So, I'm going to go ahead and keep thinking that my speech which is repetitively being quoted that promotes confidence in human ability to change and which was approved by over 600 random people all over the world is having an impact, and you can keep thinking that when you go around a present facts that a good amount of people already knows for some reason that apparently isn't to make yourself sound smart is having an impact.

Look up the definition of eloquence, read my speech, and then look at the original comments that it elicited. I don't need to call it eloquent, because it is. Don't tell me I'm egotistical when you think just because you don't like me suddenly the definitions of words change.
www.funnyjunk.com/funny_pictures/4454895/Facebook+You+have+no+friends/71#71

If I do something and others approve of it, and I feel good about it, that doesn't make me on a high horse, that makes me inspired to keep doing things that others like. But I think if you think you are some sort of internet superhero fighting for the cause of truthfulness, constantly there to step in and tell people when they are wrong or right, that's kind of pointless. If that's what you're doing, you're doing something far more pointless than what I did.

I think if you went back and reread the things you said, you might find yourself to be very hypocritical.

In the end, if people read what we just said to each other, the worse thing they could say about me is that I'm too full of myself. But think of all of the things they could say about you when you dissolve to insults and anger when someone argues with you.
User avatar #196 to #195 - jagenblitz (10/20/2013) [-]
Again with the thumbs. And after you stated to not care about them. For the third time, the current top ranked comment is "Admin is a faggot". With over 700 thumbs. So this comment is even more impactful than yours, no? I already went over how thumbs mean nothing.

Responses do not make something eloquent. I could make a bunch of autistic children praise me with a song about poop. That doesn't make it eloquent. Your little speech was hyperbolic, banal, shallow, and factually wrong besides.

You actually have the audacity to call me a "internet superhero" when you're the one going on and on about how your comment "inspired people"? When you literally said that thumbs on a internet website means people would be willing to cheer you in an auditorium? I'm drowning in the irony. I never claimed that there is some overreaching point in what I'm doing. You did.

By all means, explain how I'm a hypocrite.

The worst thing people could say about you is that you think spewing ******** over the internet makes you important because it got thumbs. And that when confronted with an argument that calls you out on said ******** , you strawman that argument to make that person out as a misanthrope rather than man up to it.

The worst people could say about me is that I'm an ass. My insults and annoyance don't change whether I am right or wrong, and seeing as how you haven't responded to a single thing in the paragraph you copy and pasted it's clear that you realize that.
#199 to #196 - ryderjbudde ONLINE (10/21/2013) [-]
It was supposed to be hyperbolic because it needed to be inspiring. And it's not banal or shallow just because you think it is.

It's not shallow because it serves a purpose as I explained below, and if it's so banal, tell me where you heard the things I said? If anything you're banal for cohering to the idea that humanity is a disease.

And you are strawmanning me nonstop, saying that all this is is a kid who used a cliche to get meaningless thumbs and now he's full of himself when I've shown you how it's had effect, the effect is in front of your ******* face, and I explained the actuality of this in every comment I've given you, to which you would essentially say, "No, you're just a prideful dick and what you wrote was wrong," and then I would essentially say again, "You're right, it was wrong, but it doesn't matter because it was supposed to be inspiring," and then you say, "Again being prideful, it wasn't inspiring at all because I hate it." Let me say it again, the only thing you've done is tell people facts that they PROBABLY ALREADY KNEW, but they thumbed me up because they knew that the point wasn't to be right, it was to inspire people.

AND I didn't call you an internet superhero, I said if you think what you're a superhero fighting for the cause of truthfulness, that's kind of ridiculous. I didn't even say that's what you were. You know my comment inspired people, you just for some reason want to create all these reasons why the obvious approval of what I said wasn't real. It's inspiring because it inspired people, that's why it was inspiring, look at the ******* comments.

And don't tell me I strawmanning things when you say **** like "You strawman that argument to make that person out as a misanthrope rather than man up to it" that's not what I did. This is just exhibit A of how you're a hypocrite, and how you're full of yourself.

Reality doesn't bend to what you think.
User avatar #202 to #199 - jagenblitz (10/21/2013) [-]
So in other words you can't be "inspirational" without ******** . Got it. And no, it's banal because it's the same old "humanity is awesome" **** that ignore reality, and it's shallow because it accomplishes nothing.

Again with the strawman. Show me where I said humanity is a disease. And do you even know what banal is?

You haven't shown meet **** . All I see is the same comment you see all over the feels section, from people who forget about it five minutes later. Show me where the change happened. Show me how this comment inspired people to change their lives or help the world. I'd say "I'll wait" but I don't feel like sitting at my computer for the next 20 years.

Facts the already knew. Lol. If that was true then why did I get so many thumbs hm? Why are you the ONLY one who has said anything against my comment?

I KNOW it inspired people? Lol. I KNOW that it got over 600 thumbs, just like I KNOW "Admin is a faggot" got over 700 thumbs. Again, is this supposed to mean something?

You have literally said, multiple times, that I think humanity is incapable of change or a disease, then failed to point out where or how I did. So yes, that is exactly what you did, you dumb **** .
#203 to #202 - ryderjbudde ONLINE (10/21/2013) [-]
All right. You win, I know believe I am a total egotistical douchebag who is incapable of logic because some random internet policeman said so. You have shown me the error of my ways with your condescending comments, my apologies.
#197 to #196 - ryderjbudde ONLINE (10/21/2013) [-]
I said thumbs weren't everything, and then explained that they do have meaning. You know that when people thumb things up, they do it to convey a message, and you know that message is different between a humorous comment and a serious one. If thumbs meant nothing, no one would thumb things up. People thumbed up that joke probably to enhance its comedy, you don't honestly think people thumbed up what I said because they were laughing hysterically, and people thumbed it down because they didn't get the joke do you? They thumbed it up because they thought it was awesome, and the ******* comments prove that after the majority of the comments say "that was awesome," "that was beautiful," "faith in humanity restored," those are what people ******* say, just because it was on the internet, that doesn't mean that they weren't people saying those things. I even had comments saying, "That was very persuasive, but you're wrong because..." and comment number 384 even said,"As eloquent as it sounds, you completely disregard the point that we caused the pollution and other inconsistencies, that's why we are trying to fix it. Not because we are some god-send. You have done a good job making us feel better about ourselves though, kudos." For the third time the ******* definition of eloquence is being fluent or persuasive in speaking or writing, and if something writes something that causes an overwhelming amount of people to agree, and say things like "That was beautiful," or even say how persuasive it was, that means it was ******* eloquent. I don't know why you can't pick that up.

And just because you're painfully myopic and can't see that thumbs for the most part aren't just generated by cold rating systems, and comments aren't scripted, that there are people behind the thumbs and comments clicking and typing to convey what they are thinking, that doesn't mean they don't have meaning. You're a hypocrite because you're more full of yourself than I am, because...
User avatar #200 to #197 - jagenblitz (10/21/2013) [-]
The entire crux of your argument as to why your comment is so important is because it has a lot of thumbs. Yet "thumbs aren't everything" and "you don't really care about thumbs". Yeah okay.

Convey a meaning? They're clicking a goddamn button on the internet. As I already said, people do the same **** with feels posts, then go on to post jokes about faggots and ******* . Two months ago complaining about Tumbler comments would get you thumbed to heaven, now it gets you thumbed to hell. Thumbs mean absolutely nothing intrinsically. They only reflect what the FunnyJunk bandwagon happens to like at the time. You could post that same exactly comment in a different thread and get thumbed down to oblivion for being a faggot. It's happened countless times.

Eloquence means that something is well-written. The fact that your speech was factually wrong on almost every level, completely unoriginal, and does nothing to actually promote people to realize the mistakes humanity has made despite that being the apparent goal makes it ineloquent. I don't give a **** how many thumbs you have, the majority of the people on this website are barely in high school. You think they know what eloquence is? I've seen numerous posts with dozens of thumbs that were wrong. Like yours.

If you actually think that comments over the internet are the same as being said in real life, then you're naive as hell.
#198 to #197 - ryderjbudde ONLINE (10/21/2013) [-]
you think what you're saying actually matters. So what if it's factual? Like I said, I already knew what you were saying, and for the most part, everyone else did too. In my first reply I said it wasn't about being correct, that's why I haven't been responding to your paragraphs about correctness, because I thought you understood that I said my speech wasn't about being correct, it was about being inspiring. People quoted it in arguments about misanthropy, that means it inspired people to stand up for philanthropy and it doesn't matter if it was some loser, or if it was even just one person, because all it takes is one person to quote me to make my speech serve its purpose.

Do you finally understand now?
User avatar #201 to #198 - jagenblitz (10/21/2013) [-]
Please point out to me where I said that I think what I said actually matters. I mean, do you even realize you said that I'm more full of yourself than you because I think what I said matters, when this ENTIRE argument is you saying that what YOU said matters? Are you so ******* stupid that you accuse me of being more egotistical for doing exactly what you're doing?

Hah. ******** . Unless you're admitting that you have to lie in order to be "inspirational", which makes you even less eloquent because apparently you need ******** in your attempts to inspire people.

Lol? Where else was it quoted besides here?

All it takes is for you to be quoted? People repost **** for thumbs here all the damn time. And after all that ******** about 600 thumbs, now you're turning around and saying it takes one quote? Hilarious.

I think he was referring to natural gasses, such as methane, released from animals. Not that it makes his point any more valid, since every possible "pollutant" put into our atmosphere by animals is easily absorbed back into the ecosystem in a natural, healthy way the prevents the extreme changes that our pollution causes. I'd also like to point out that our moving mountains and being "godly" actually destroys entire ecosystems. Take an Environmental science class and you will see that every time we attempt to alter things like mountain placement, river flow, lakes, etc. that we actually benefit our own species minutely, despite completely eradicating entire systems. And currently, rain cycles are being thrown off their **** because of displacement of natural water systems and shifts in atmospheric temperatures. Thinking that we are too badass to stop doing what we are doing to the earth is essentially Man's Hubris and Folly.

Thank you for being intelligent

I'd also like to point out that the average squirrel does more to prevent pollution than the average human.

I like this, but my opinion means **** because I am misanthropy incarnate
User avatar #147 to #60 - fukkendragonite (08/14/2013) [-]
You are a horribleperson

about half way through i started reading this in the doctors voice. then i went back and read it in Morgan Freeman's voice. its better when in their voices.

Being misanthropic myself, you're ******* right man. But to me, all humans are assholes, not all humans pollute the earth or some ******** like that - the simple fact is that every human would **** you over if they had the chance.
#97 to #48 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
Where do you get that? Did you not have parents or brothers or sisters or aunts or uncles or cousins or grandparents or close friends? What about a spouse? Or the firefighters and policemen?
User avatar #98 to #97 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
....what?
#99 to #98 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
"The simple face that every human would **** you over if they have the chance"


Mom= Human

Dad= Human
User avatar #100 to #99 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
Yeah, pretty sure they would too.
#103 to #100 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
Then I'm sorry you had a crappy family and crappy friends.
User avatar #106 to #103 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
Dude, that's everyone. True friends don't exist.
#107 to #106 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
You obviously never had any real close friends, so let's just narrow it down to the two biggest people in your life for a while- your mom and dad. Now, I'm truly sorry if you had such a crappy childhood with them that you don't think they would risk their life for you, but many other actually good ones would.
User avatar #108 to #107 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
****** , you have no idea.
I have had many close friends. And all of them have ****** me over one time or another. Suck a dick and stop making assumptions because you think you know psychology.
#116 to #108 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
Well then they weren't true friends, idiot. I've had true friends who've stayed with me through hell and back, and I've had close friends who ditched me as soon as something went sour.

Still haven't acknowledge the parents part, hm?
#118 to #116 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
You keep telling yourself that.

And really, asshole, you have one hell of an ego.
#124 to #118 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
You really do have problems, huh? And what good parents wouldn't sacrifice nearly everything for their kids? Or their spouse? Parents or lovers trying to save someone else. Men in the army jumping in front of a bullet to save someone else. Hell, even a teacher!

Remember Victoria Soto? She sure didn't **** over her students, did she?
User avatar #127 to #124 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
Again, you're making assumptions. You hardly know me, really, quit being such an arrogant prick. You pad your ego by telling yourself I'm ****** up, that I'm wrong and you're right. You probably have more issues than I do.

Sometimes people do things like helping people so they can feel good about themselves.
#166 to #127 - omnomonom ONLINE (08/14/2013) [-]
You are also making assumptions.
You have generalized everyone, yet expect him not to.

There are plenty of people that wouldn't screw others over in an instant.
#130 to #127 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
So now you're making assumptions about me?


Yes, because I'm sure she really cared about feeling good about herself when the gunman ran into the room/
User avatar #132 to #130 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
I'm guessing.

See, you're only proving my theory further - you are being a humongous douchebag for no reason at all - or simply because I have a different opinion than you.
#135 to #132 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
A different opinion that is saying that I'm an asshole who would **** everyone over. Which was the very first assumption made.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tablets_on_the_Memorial_to_Heroic_Self_Sacrifice Look at this, if you really hate humans that much. Look at all the men and women who did everything they could to save others.
User avatar #136 to #135 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
I'm not saying YOURE an asshole (well I am, and I think you are) but rather people have the capacity and inclination to be assholes.

Really, I don't hate the human race as a whole, as I've explained numerous times in this comment thread - I hate the people in it, and what they do.
#138 to #136 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
Of course every living thing can become an asshole, but not all do.


'All humans are assholes' -The first post called me an asshole. Because I'm a human.
User avatar #140 to #138 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
So because you were offended first, you win?

INCLINATION TO BE ASSHOLES.

And there are exceptions to every rule - you may be the exception to the "humans are assholes" rule. But most likely not.
User avatar #148 to #140 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
I am making a general statement about millions of people. You were making assumptions about a single person, me. See the difference?

Again, exceptions to every rule.
#143 to #140 - blanketandpillow (08/14/2013) [-]
No, I honestly wasn't offended. But it was idiotic. Where did I say that? You keep saying 'Stop making assumptions' The thing that started off this whole fight was a huge assumption. 'Every human would **** you over if they had the chance'- besides Victoria Soto, Thomas Griffin, Mary Rogers, Amelia Kennedy, Frederick Alfred Croft, George Blencowe, James Bannister, and many more

Only if they had anything to gain with it, but then again, so would every other living being in this planet.
User avatar #51 to #50 - achimp (08/14/2013) [-]
Very true, but the fact that humans are intelligent makes it only worse.

It's very hard not to hate humans. The Human Race is good, it's what is described above, wonderful and amazing - it's the people in it I hate.

I think all of the Animals on earth are Fascinating, even the smallest animal can have the most fascinating thing about them for example, the Tardigrade or Water Bear, that can survive in Space.
User avatar #34 to #22 - daentraya (08/14/2013) [-]
Humanity is both the best, the worst, the greatest, the most ********** , the smartest, the dumbest but definitely most fascinating species on earth.

That was beautiful...
