Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Animal testing sucks.
It is a cruel, unusual punishment for 50-100 million animals every year.
Animals who are being tested for, lets say, make-up, have their eyes held open by clips while poisonous chemicals are being put into their eyelids. When they begin tearing, we now know that you shouldn't put a certain amount of that chemical into someone's eye.
But the question is, what alternatives do we have?
I had an argument with a friend who believes that, instead of innocent animals, we should test eitherconvicted felons in exchange for reduced prison times, or for lifers/people on death row in order for them to be productive.
I personally think that, no, human life is special, and even though they're felons they shouldn't be forced to do something so inhumane.
What do you guys think?
(First OP, does it suck?)
