Is the ugly dude in the video going extinct?

Don't be tasty. That helps, too. Unless we can breed you in captivity economically. Then you're good.

Otters hold each others hands while they sleep when floating in water, so none will float away from the group.

I like to call this my BBE (Big Brown Eyes) rule. It's like a flowchart.

Step 1) Does it have big brown eyes? If yes, then protest and outrage when we kill it. If No, step 2
Step 2) Can I exploit it? If yes, then protest and outrage. If no, step 3
Step 3) Fark you.

It's why I moved into plants. Nobody cares if you take a flamethrower to a crop of barley if it's yours. I could dissect that shiat all day and nobody would care. Also bugs. Nobody but entomologists gives a crap about bugs unless it's bees.

Someone is lamenting the demise of pubic lice?  Really?

I dunno I'm pretty sure that proboscis monkey has a future in porn. The toads just farked though.

Also, don't be tasty. Or perhaps be tasty and easy to breed in captivity.
 
2013-06-08 10:59:04 PM
Maybe they want to go extinct.

Do we really want to save the pubic louse or the guinea worm?

Why did we spend all that effort to save those damn Condors then?

While it isn't always true, one reason why we focus on the "cute" animals is that they tend to feed from the higher trophic levels.  So, in order to save the Bengal tiger, you need to also save the prey animals they feed on, the plants those animals feed on, the insects that pollinate those plants, and so on.  So from a conservation standpoint, saving cute animals is more efficient.  Usually.

RatMaster999: Do we really want to save the pubic louse or the guinea worm?


Some quick googling doesn't show that human Pubic lice are too involved in any food chain. And they are clearly not necessary for human survival. They don't seem to live on other mammals. This is probably one of the few species that could go extinct without any consequences.

On a side note: if they become endangered and someone gets crabs will they be forced to sustain them and not poison or destroy their natural habitat? Will the EPA take jurisdiction of someones junk? Will bikini waxing need an environmental impact statement?

everyone should destroy the evidence of dead animals by eating them

"The pthirus pubis, more commonly known as the crab lice, is in danger of extinction thanks to the popularity of pubic hair waxing "

Do we really f*cking need crab lice to exist?

What's next to cry about? Plague fleas? Won't someone please think of the plague fleas?

On the bright side, I get to charge the sight-seers for guided tours of the area, I offer a hands on experience for those with some extra coin, and some Hollywood starlet is always willing to help the cause of providing more natural habitat for breeding

Step three, "have a great name"; and step four, "look fantastic in a suit... casual wear... in anything... sound good... smell good... kiss good... strut around with supreme confidence... be uncannily successful at your job... blow people away every time you say anything... take six hour lunches... disappear for weeks at a time... lie to everyone about everything... drink and smoke constantly"

That's what I was thinking.

And then you got me thinking of this as the natural end of your economic captive breeding comment:

Yeah, that didn't make sense to me either. I really don't think it's a vital part of the ecosystem.

Why would we care about lice?

Actually the answer is be economically profitable and easy to raise commercially. Cows, chickens, sheep, and even buffalo are plentiful while fish are starting to become endangered. All of these animals grace the plates of people, but only fish are hard to raise commercially.
