Human nature dictates that nothing is more entertaining than celebrating and displaying one's sense of Superiority... just like pack/herd/flock animals with their "pecking orders".
Many religions try to rationalize Mankind's Superiority over the animal kingdom ("Do animals have 'souls' ?"); but it appears to me that people have a great deal in common with the the birds and the beasts.
That's interesting, Magus. Your post reeks of superiority, and yet it's not that entertaining. So I'm not so sure about your theory.
Now, whay d'ya think of the picture? Pretty funny, right? The guy looks like a total pansy!
