My cat ripped a moth's wings. Still moves, but it can't fly anymore. Wat do? I don't want this thing to die soon. Help me, /b/
moths and butterflies have very delicate wings, even lightly touching them can make them break
just fucking put it in a boat and give it a viking funeral already, its never flying again.
I only make it worse.
Ok dubs decide
an Atlas moth? holy fuck where do you live? i wanna see one.
WAIT WHY THE FUCK IS IT SO FUCKING HUGE?
IS THAT FUCKING MOTHRA OR SOMETHING? FUCKING KILL IT NOW BEFORE IT SHOOTS LAZERS
it says here, that this moth isn't even ABLE to eat.
Because of this they live for 2 weeks once they're at this stage.
OP, it doesn't need to fly because it doesn't need to eat.
How can I use my duster to freeze things?
I'm pretty sure the air isn't that cold and it would only destroy the moth.
But I do know, that the can gets cold as fuck when you use it.
It keeps moving, so hard to keep it in the boat.
>tfw this moth will never be able to answer these questions because it gonna die
I can't keep the moth on the boat, i can't kill it either.
An anon said it can live for 2 weeks, so let it be. I can have a cute dried moth later on.
Sorry i don't deliver. Here's tits as an apology.
oh lord, your lips are gorgeous. please for the love of god MORE!
I am obsessing over your wonderful lips and tits, i need more, i wanna die happy like your moth.
mfw she maimed the poor moth priest to slut around in her mothnecklace
Moth Goddess, you could become something bigger then yourself, you could ascend to 4chan myth, but only if you keep posting tits.
Catch moth in a bucket. Insert boat in bucket. Fill bucket with water. Fill boat with flammatives. Match, set... viking funeral.
It should not be that hard.
Painless, non-viking version: crush it under a garden tile.
viking funeral......IN VAGINA
use the moth rakkar as a dildo.
you will be rememvered forever.
you can't torture an insect, they can't suffer.
experimental entomologists love their field because there are no ethical restrictions on what they can physically do to an insect.
That doesn't make the kids ITT any less 12-years-old, any less cowardly, nor any less unjustly lacking their parents' affection.
Point me in the direction of some evidence that they have no pain response. Even if they don't, have you ever seen a moth in that state? They struggle to get the fuck away, usually.
Insects experience nociception to harmful stimuli, but nociception != pain.
They do not suffer, their nervous systems are too primitive for that to be possible.
Also, stop being such a pussy. Nobody cares what bugs think
instinct != volition. i think any animal with the capability of moving would try to flee its attacker. that doesn't mean it's thinking/processing "omg avoid more pain!". nociception in animals is linked to base instincts, not any self-aware CNS activity.
You were a hero, but you may be rapidly taking a turn into pseudo-edgy pre-teen conformist town.
If you must kill it, kill it quick and clean. Even vikings burned after they were ALREADY dead.
FUCK those tits are literally perfect. Why can't I live in Australia so I can come to OPs house and ravaged your asshole.
Now my cat decided she still want to have fun with the moth.
It says lighter fluid in the fucking photo. Are you fucking mentally handicapped? Of course it's fucking flammable
Re-read the thread.
Since you know a bit about zoology, you should already know that adolescent predatory animals toy with their kills, and adults, let alone alphas, just get the fucking job done.
>adolescent predatory animals toy with their kills
Yeah, that's how they learn to hunt
>adults, let alone alphas, just get the fucking job done.
Yeah, because they've already perfected hunting.
I have no idea what exactly you're trying to say.
I agree, but I suspect that self-awareness is less the issue than most people care to admit. Our most basic survival instincts are primarily based in the most primitive parts of our brain. Yes, I think it's a greater tragedy if a person dies, but that doesn't necessarily mean that a crocodile doesn't hate pain and want to continue existing.
And we're back to the beginning of the discussion, where we established that bugs are incapable of feeling pain and suffering.
The autism is real.
Are you thick or what?
Where did I mention hedges. I said it was stupid to compare entomologists with kids that are cruel to bugs for the hell of it.
Their motivations are completely different.
And what do you do? Bring hedges into it hahaha!
here's how to actually help it: http://youtu.be/ah0SBALIc0o
Seeing as you're retarded enough to come to /b/ for help on saving an animal you're probably too retarded to pull this off though.
Yes you do. You're pretending to be stupid. I can only hope.
All the pseudo-edgy 12-year-old sociopaths who have flooded /b/ want people to think that they're mature, wise, and experienced "tough guys". Much like the adolescent lion, they are not.
You do realize that analogies are an important part of most respected IQ tests, right?
No m8 the inhuman treatment means - lacking human qualities of compassion and mercy; cruel and barbaric.
It doesn't have to be human to be on the receiving end of inhuman treatment.
Comparing the predatory drive of wild animals to 12 year olds killing bugs is not an effective analogy you fucking insufferable pseudointellectual cunt.
So far all you've done is talk about how killing bugs is cruel and how they definitely feel pain and suffering despite every bit of biological evidence suggesting otherwise.
I don't know why I even bother discussing such things with autistic faggots like you.
>I said it was stupid to compare entomologists with kids that are cruel to bugs for the hell of it.
>Their motivations are completely different.
You are just embarrassing yourself, the point was clear enough. it had nothing to do with pain or suffering
>You are just embarrassing yourself
Said the guy who cries every time a bug dies
I have never once mentioned pain or suffering, this is what I am trying to get through to your thick head.
My point never had anything to do with whether insects feel pain. In fact I said something can be cruel even with a complete lack of pain involved, just the presence of physical abuse demonstrates.
I just couldn't believe that anyone would justify being cruel to insects by comparing it to the reasons why entomologists study insects.
I told you to stop embarrassing yourself but actually it has been fun spelling it out to you.
>Anon states it is foolish to compare scientists with practitioners of animal cruelty
>Point out that they cannot comprehend the concept of pain, so the latter's closer more a animal harmer
>B-but they have different motives, so you are a retarded embarrassment
>you can be cruel to a fucking toothbrush
This fucking guy
Pressed f for mothbro
Oh I forgot the dictionary was wrong.
You should really call Merriam-Webster and Oxford and inform them of this, I'm sure they would be more than happy to rewrite it to your correct definition.
>Cruelty - inhuman treatment, including but not limited to physical abuse.
Which is the context, so it is not the exact opposite which is what you claimed.
I called Merriam-Webster and Oxford and they transferred me to the jerk store.
They wanted to speak to you.
What happened is they said something that you disagree with, and the severity of your reaction opened you up to be trolled.
That's how I know you're new.
You asked for it, fag.
>Who do you think you are baiting
Obviously you, because you're the one getting upset, you colosal faggot.
Also, I'm pretty certain you've been called autistic at least 4 times in this thread alone and told to go back to reddit twice.
If you weren't so good at taking bait maybe they would stop, but alas you prove yourself to be more and more entertaining to troll with every post.
Seriously, Is it your first day on 4chan?
Yes it is my first day on 4chan, teach me the ways of this bating you are gloating about?
Does it involve bragging about baiting and spelling out you are trolling and the person still taking the bait?
