I made a tiny suit of armor for a hermit crab

Pretty sure this is how Pokemon come into being.

Pokemon is just dog fighting in cartoon form.

Sounds like there might be a gap in the market for an actual dog fighting card game.

Something about pouring molten metal in a safety apron but also barefoot.

That's the pretty much the entire channel; Waiting for something horrible to happen.

He does seem to have an irresistible desire to touch hot things, and then keep touching them.

Today I was watching a video where some guys fitted a turbo charger onto a wood burning vessel and saw something similar. The guy is wearing flip flops and has one foot up on a box holding a piece of sheet metal so he can cut into it with a hole saw. The centering bit falls out part way through so he just powers through the rest of the way.

Ugh, was trying to respond to the molten metal thread.

Seems a bit mean to automatically smash any wild watersnails he came across. Unless they are an invasive species in that area.

Yeah, I feel the same, but it's not all much different than it is then putting a living thing on your hook and fishing with it.🤷‍♂️

Baiting a hook with a living animal, to catch a fish for yourself would come under the heading of hunting for your own survival. Or at least, your own lunch. But killing one animal so that another animal can eat it, just seems arbitary to me. Are the fish starving? Are snails wrecking the environment? Why not kill the fish to stop them eating harmless snails?

I think that a selfless act comes off as morally murkier than a selfish one.

Oh well. Vertibrates before invertibrates.

I have horrible news for you about catch and relase fishing.
