We humans are punching SO FAR above our weight it's ridiculous. We're only 0.1% of life, but we've won against 80% of it!

Take that, Nature! Go us!

Now tell me how I should recycle my cereal boxes and become vegetarian.

Fantastic story. Thanks man, I love shit like that.

A few weeks ago, a story that read along similar lines discussed a single poultry plant in China that processed over 10,000 chickens per hour. One fucking factory. 10,000 per fucking hour. That's hard to wrap your head around.
