People asked what experiments they would perform regardless of ethical or legal barriers
Depending on your level of familiarity with Reddit, you may be aware of its dual potential for enlightenment and f**ked up conversations that really make you question your faith in humanity. That’s probably because it’s essentially a platform where people can share ideas and discuss things from behind a computer screen and hide their real identity. You can say things on there you’d be ridiculed for in public so when someone asks a real deep question, you often get some pretty f**ken interesting answers. Try this one on for size…
Right, so the question posed for Redditors to ponder was this: You’re given the opportunity to perform any experiment regardless of ethical, legal or financial barriers. Which experiment do you choose and what do you think you’ll find out?
A good place to start is probably to think about your own answer to that question. Once you’ve got it down, f**ken whack it in the Facebook comments. It’ll be like our own little derivative discussion. It’ll be f**ken grouse.
Right, let’s have a look at some of these responses then shall we.
OK, first question up:
What if you, as an adult, raised a clone of yourself from birth, but as your son, not telling them that they are you, but cloned?
Okay, first up, that’s f**ken evil. It’s the sort of shit that goes on in the book The Wasp Factory, by Iain Banks. If you’ve read that you know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, get on that sh*t right now. It’ll f**k you right up.
I love that as soon as we remove the ethics, everyone turns into Mr Sinister. Could we please try this without the child abuse? Please?
Starting to get interesting.
And there are the regulars!
Anyone else picturing the old pincers from Sim City or whatever the f**k that game was? Sentinel Island is the Island off the coast of India with the incredibly hostile tribe who don’t want a bar of modern civilisation. To put it simply, they f**ken hate you.
So what we’re saying is it’d be like the horror version of Encino Man? Okay then, now I’m bloody interested. When do we start?
Righty-f**ken-o. This is something I’m sure we can all get behind. Can you imagine the polite and well-informed discussion they’d have? “Excuse me, Sir, but I do believe the slightly different shade of your skin makes you inhuman. We’re going to nail a sign on your land that says no humans live here and f**ken claim it. No hard feelings though.”
Yeah, this dude’s probably nailed it. Didn’t we just find out that neanderthals and ‘humans’ got it on? Real question is whether or not their babies could interbreed. Crazy sh*t.
OK, the comedy angle on this could be f**ken grouse. You could even have a range of different serial killers. One is the deranged escapee from the asylum, another is the creepy old guy from down the road, and the last one is Steve from accounting. F**k Steve.
I love the guy who always points out horror movie victim’s foibles. It’s called suspension of disbelief, Dad, and you’re kinda ruining the scene where she gets killed by a falling attic ladder. Geez!
True that. If you do walk around without turning the lights on, hide in places there are no escape from, and ignore the fact that the guy in the mask has been staring at you strangely for hours, you probably deserve every gory kill coming your way.
Something tells me Jakgr has a highly questionable collection of snuff films. Someone ought to get the FBI on that.
Now there are groups of people! Holy sh*t, this is escalating massively.
And you can always see who the D&D players are. Me, I’d definitely go for the +5 vorpal sword of castration.
All right, settle down, Hitler.
OK, we’re into eugenics. We knew it was always gonna go this way, let’s be honest.
And we’re back to bestiality. F**k you, Reddit. Every f**king time!
Final thought: Anyway, make sure you check out the page. It makes for a good read – and at times, a scary one. Thanks again, Reddit. You certainly keep the internet interesting. F**k.
