If You Could Snap Your Fingers and Eliminate Any Species on Earth, What Would It Be?
 
If you could snap your fingers (clap your hands, wave a magic wand, what have you) and eliminate anything on earth, what would you pick and why?

I ask because I'm dealing with a flea infestation in my apartment right now thanks to my dog and I'm cursing every single last one of these jumpy motherf#ckers.

Cockroaches and mosquitoes would be my next two picks. I'm ready for fall so all the bugs will DIE :x

None, because I would probably end up f*cking the ecosystem.

Spike Spiegel 09-21-2017 08:23 PM

I can't stand houseflies. Any flying, buzzing insects, really.

Autbot_Benz 09-21-2017 08:26 PM

Id eliminate the SJW's mosquitoes and flies

Prowler 09-21-2017 08:27 PM

Flies
Rats
Roaches
Pigeons
Wasps

...well this would probably mess the ecosystem a bit, but come on now, most people would get rid of most of these if they had the ability to do so. Don't deny it :tlol:

FredWolfLeonardo 09-21-2017 08:27 PM

None, I think it would be immoral to do so.

ProphetofGanja 09-21-2017 08:34 PM

Undeniably, eliminating any entire species in the blink of any eye would have a significant effect on the environment... but f#ck the environment, I'm part of the motherf#cking environment, if the environment can effect ME then I can effect IT!!!

:lol::lol::lol: I kid, but seriously, f#ck pestilential bugs, am I right??

plastroncafe 09-21-2017 08:47 PM

Hypothetically?

I could be down for getting rid of mosquitoes.
Especially the specific species that harbors the Malaria bug.

We've eradicated polio, so...not really seeing this as much different.

Like, shark-sharks?

Real ass sharks?

They are probably the singular thing I fear most in this world but I wouldn't want to see them go. They're so perfectly adapted to their environment and they really won't bother you if you understand how they operate and give them space.

But like used car dealer-type sharks? Yeah, f#ck 'em.

Ocean Sunfish...they basically do absolutely nothing for anyone or anything. Literally. They're inedible to most predators, they basically do absolutely nothing but float around and lay waaaaaay more eggs than they logically should as Nature's Most Useless Animal™. They pretty much just fill space.

IndigoErth 09-21-2017 09:07 PM

Since you guys have some of the definite choices covered, I'm gonna go with other, sometimes more sinister culprits (who I'm just going to say count as obscure forms of life in some way)...

Good bye viruses.

Bye rhinovirus (I will remember you not fondly via my mini plush Giant Microbes). Bye flu, HIV, and others.

While some critters we don't like might still somehow serve a purpose, it's hard to see how viruses serve any that isn't only self serving. (If any can be beneficial in some way, well they can remain cultivated in a lab...)

I will come to defend the Sunfish!
Because without it, we would never have gotten this:

The single most Masshole thing I've ever seen.
Bask in its glory!

IndigoErth 09-21-2017 09:19 PM

:lol: He needs to get together the guy crying over rainbows. They'd get along great.

Poor sunfish.... At least they don't want to eat or hurt us.

Utrommaniac 09-21-2017 09:21 PM

Baby whales do not deserve to be mistaken for sunfish!

Bravo on the rhinovirus, though...bravo.

Powder 09-21-2017 09:24 PM

Us, I guess.

I came to this thread expecting someone to answer "humanity".

And I was not disappointed. :tlol:

ProactiveMan 09-22-2017 05:19 AM

Mosquitoes would be hard to overlook... maybe heart worm, flesh eating bacteria, or that fish that swims up your pee-hole.

AT-Man 09-22-2017 06:55 AM

Ticks, of course. No contest. F*ck ticks.
