There may be more sadists lurking in our midst than we'd like to think, according to a new study from the University of British Columbia and the University of Texas at El Paso. After offering a group of college students the chance to play exterminator and kill live bugs, researchers found "acts of apparent cruelty" and evidence of "everyday sadism"

in most case, like drugs addicts, it will escalate.

as junkies no longer affected with small dosages of drugs and carving for larger dosages,

so is the sadist, killing bugs will no longer satisfy them, they will want to express their sadistic tendency to larger target, and eventually to human target.

Or maybe they'll just join the Mobile Infantry and find bigger bugs to kill?

Do you want to live forever!?

Survival of the fittest isn't about being the most cruel, physically strong etc.

 

 

 

 Darwin meant it as a metaphor for "better adapted for immediate, local environment", not the common inference of "in the best physical shape".[4] Hence, it is not a scientific description.[5]

 

 

As for the article, could it be that people would rather kill a few bugs than put themselves to any inconvenience by having to clean toilets or the unpleasant act of having an ice bath?

It's bugs we are talking about, and that brings out the worse in all of us.
