So I was helping some friends shoot a PSA in the nursing department of our college and I had way too much fun with the uncanny training dummies. The JFK lookin’ one was my favorite, his name is Jeffrey.
Depressing facts about humanity: People swerve to hit animals - The chances are that on any given day, you’ll walk past the kind of person who would intentionally run over an animal on the side of the road. In an experiment conducted by Mark Rober, an engineer for NASA, a bunch of rubber snakes, tarantulas, and turtles were placed by the side of a highway, just to see what would happen. Rober found that out of one thousand passing cars documented, as many as sixty went out of their way to squash them. The drivers made a conscious decision to swerve beyond the roadside boundaries in an attempt to kill the rubber animals. Perhaps unsurprisingly, eighty-nine percent of such cases involved SUVs. On the flip side, a good number of people did pull up in an attempt to help the animal—but that doesn’t change the fact that when presented with a innocent little snake just trying to go about its business, more than one in twenty people risked their own lives to destroy it.
People are monsters legitimately tho
One of the 1000000 reasons why I got a divorce. My ex husband did stuff like this all the time. He would tell me stories of how he and his brothers when they were little would grab their cat by it’s tail and swing it around and around. Even going as far as to putting it in a pillow case and swinging it around. It’s sick and gross. Him and I even had a pact where we wouldn’t talk about whether animals went to heaven or not (I believe they DO, he believes they DONT) because if we talked about it at all, we would get Into a fight.. and it would make me so angry how insensitive he was about sweet little innocent animals.
