You have to watch the video.

Quote :
Our friend Mark Rober from NASA makes some awesome videos, but this science experiment must be his best yet. He basically showed that six percent of the drivers out there are sadistic animal killers.

This is what he did:

• He alternatively placed a rubber animal—and a leaf as a control object—on the shoulder of a road: a turtle, a snake, or a spider.

• He watched one thousand cars pass by and annotated the drivers' reaction.

The results are quite surprising.

He found out that 94 percent of drivers did what anyone in their sane mind would do: keep driving on their lane. Remember that the animals were on the road's shoulder, way outside their driving path. They didn't pose any danger whatsoever to the drivers' safety.

On the other hand, six percent went out of the driving lane to run over the animals. Think about that: sixty out of one thousand drivers actually went out of their way to kill a living thing that didn't represent any danger to their lives—and risking their own lives in the process, no less. Six percent were just cruel because they could be. For their own sadistic pleasure, I can only imagine.

This may sound a bit drastic, but those who went out of their way to hurt the animals, deserve to be hit by a car themselves.

WTF is wrong with these people? does it give them some kind of satisfaction killing nonthreatening animals? this morning on the way into work a raccoon ran in front of my car i nearly wrecked trying to avoid hitting it. i cant imagine someone would drive onto the shoulder to hit an animal

I think the people who would do something like this are the same kind of people who would take a gun to a movie theater and start killing innocent people. The next time a tragedy happens and everyone asks, "Who would do something like that?" Well, I think we have our answer ... the same people who would go out of their way to run over a helpless animal. Now that I think about it, doing what this guy did might be a good way to draw out the psychos. Roadkill Experiment Shows That Six Percent of Drivers Are Sadistic Animal Killers 3135543967

I don't think this was an actual NASA study. Roadkill Experiment Shows That Six Percent of Drivers Are Sadistic Animal Killers 2988561446

Dude just did it on his own, hence the low-budget research tools.


And even if it was a real tax-payer funded study, it's more interesting than other things they spend money on .... like studying the mating habits of fruit flies and shit. No
