I saw this kickstarter, and comments about if it's ethical to do this to an animal, even if that animal is a cockroach.

That there was a legit moral discussion about online group funding a project to create cyborg cockroaches made me realize that if this is the present, the future is going to be far weirder than any sci-fi author imagined.

Totally ethical. No backbone, no problem. For cockroaches, I take no issue, but once you get into animals like Cephalopoda - octopus, squid, and cuttlefish - I think we need a different perspective. They are quite smart but there is no oversight for humane treatment, yet if you want to work with mice or even chordates, which look like jellyfish, you need piles of paperwork

I couldn't find an animated shoeslam image, so we'll just go with this and stick with the future theme.
