Humans are weird

So I have an addition to Humans are Weird.

So you all know that urge we have when we want to hug the living shit out of adorable creatures? Well, this is actually a real scientific reaction called “cute aggression” (source) and the behaviour springs up even more when we actually can’t touch the cause of Cuteness.

Can you just imagine the aliens’ reactions to the fact that humans are pretty much brain wired to kill things we find cute? And that a lot of them are baby animals that grows up to be vicious creatures that could probably kill us?

Like, the aliens are having a live sending about the most dangerous animals in the known galaxies and they have numerous teams all over the place. They are filming it from afar and have studied them as much as possible and they’re like:

Narrator

This is a Fantolus cub that will grow up to be most deadly predator on the death planet Moss. A fully grown Fantolus spews poisonous gas and can kill you i- what the-?

           Narrator breaks off in confusion.

On screen, tiny figures are approaching the cub. The cub looks harmless and innocent. The alien film crew zooms in. It’s a group of humans. They have sound.

           Human looks into camera.

Hey, how ya doin’? Look over there, right there. That’s a Fantolus cub. If the mother finds me this close, and I’m gone!

I’m gonna pick it up.

           Human hugs it to death. The other humans sigh enviously.

The Okeanos Explorer has discovered a very cute octopus at a depth of 4,290 metres.

This is the deepest an octopus of this particular sub order of octopus has ever been seen. 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration noted this is a completely unsubscribed species and perhaps not belonging to any specific genus. Highlighting how little we still know about the creatures in the depths of our oceans.

In case you were wondering these brands on the left are companies that test on animals and the right shows cruelty free companies! It’s really important to not buy from companies that test on animals, because once enough people speak out against them and stop using their products our point will get across and they’ll stop harming innocent life forms that can feel just like us, yet can’t cry out in pain and must endure it. Imagine if these companies used your beloved pet as their samplers, doesn’t that break your heart? Both lists are updated to 2016! Please guys please let’s make the animal abuse stop.
