2022-11: Warosu is now out of maintenance. Become a Patron!
There was an ant walking on the patio outside my house. I've stepped on them in the past and their endoskeleton seems to protect them, they straighten out and carry on. However, realizing this, I took my foot and scraped my shoe over the sidewalk, essentially pulverizing the ant into a mere smear. I experienced a wave of sadness immediately afterwoods.tldr; is empathy for other living things a strictly human trait? I'm honestly pretty shooken up right now.
