I agree with #1, if you were crying while behind the wheel, you need to pull over! You are obviously in no condition to drive a vehicle. What if that had been a kid in the road instead of a porcupine?

Reply

No, you shouldn't have to pull over unless you just can't drive. I don't think the fact that the OP ran over a porcupine is reason enough to say they should have pulled over. As for the OP, it's more like F the life of your tires. Ha I don't think Goodyear protects against porcupines.

Agree with some of the above comments. YDI. If you are unable to drive, don't. If that was a child running out to get a ball...

@61: Depending on how badly she was crying, her vision could be blurred, destorted, or otherwise interferred with. Also, I hit my first animal not too long ago. Yeah, it sucks, but oh well... Though it was a raccoon, not someone's possible pet.

Whats up with everyone saying if it was a child? It WASNT a child, but it was two innocent animals..its still sad. Does it have to be a child for you to feel bad? If you say yes, then im just sad for you. Sad that you think that's the right answer to that question. And to those people saying "but there are so much stray cats, why would she have to stop to see if it was a stray cause you know there are so much strays" What makes you so sure that it wasn't someones pet...you wouldn't kn

well, if it was a child, she'd be in some legal trouble. i mean sure, you'd feel bad for a pet or a child, but i think breaking the law might just add on a little bit more.

Well I agree with 129 to some extent. It's sad to read some people running over animals and seeming like they don't give a fuck. OP, you should have pulled over if your crying was blurring your vision, or causing you to become distracted. All you can do is try not to make the same mistake again. P.S. I wish you weren't a woman because this further adds to the stereotype that women are over-emotional crappy drivers. Ugh.

By the way, #147, what's up with that passive-aggressive shit? If you're going to call someone a bitch, don't bother with the smiley face.

I agree with soherewegoagain- animals are equally, if not more "important" than humans. But of course, being as self absorbed, bitter, and rapacious as we are, there are always going to be those that say humans are the epitome of "intelligence", though we are the ones who are shortening our own species' survival in the long-run. Maybe "intelligence" isn't what we think it is- animals sure as hell aren't destroying the earth through their greed.

you're an amazing person #166 :) your comment made me happy......I'm not going to get into it but for the people who are saying humans are more important We are only more important to other humans we contribute nothing to the planet ll other species live in harmony and balance each other except us we just prance around on top of it all destroying everything a human is more valuable to another human and a cat is more valuable to another cat of course you care about your own species/family

You know why we are the epitome of intelligence? We figured out a way to overcome our physical inability (in case you didn't notice, we are naked, clawless, and just plain aren't powerful) and conquered other species. How overboard we get is just an unfortunate result. You can self-righteous bitch and whine all you want, but what are you doing? Just bitching and whining. I doubt seriously you're actually "making a difference" in the world or some such shit. I love animals myself, b

If you're so disgusted and embarrassed about the fact that you're human then please kill yourself and stop wasting our resources. Get off your fucking moral high horse.

Other animals live in harmony and balance with others? Have you ever heard of the food chain? Tell that to that deer who wont get to see his young ones grow up because he's going to be a part of that lions 4:00pm snack. That lion could have atleast made it part of its dinner, but nooo it was just a little snack. And humans do contribute to this world. Besides the fact that it took human to think of a website like fml, but you do know that plenty of species would have been extinct without human h

actually Im not a Peta supporter at all, but I am an animal rights supporter (FYI the 2 aren't synonymous with each other) and in case you didn't read my post completely I agreed that we were more intelligent but I don't think being more intelligent makes you more deserving of life and conquering other species doesn't make us intelligent it makes us greedy caring about living things and wanting equal rights doesn't make me selfish if makes me selfLESS Why assume that that I'm just whini

Reply

I have heard of the food chain and I realize that animals kill each other but they do so out of need and they do so with their paws/claws and take only what they need they don't make animals into jackets and furniture and hang pieces of them on their walls right? we don't kill out of need we do so out of greed Plus if you want to really be better than the rest of the animals don't be like them and kill things you don't need to kill if were more intelligent and more capable of love we

actually by having the views that I do and living the way I do I'm LESS of a drain on the planets resources I'm not trying to be elitist but there are some pretty shitty people in this world.....

"Im not trying to be x but x." "we don't kill out of need we do so out of greed" Plus if you want to really be better than the rest of the animals don't be like them and kill things you don't need to kill if were more intelligent and more capable of love we should stop behaving like "animals" Way to be contradictory, retard. Make up your mind.

cosmolilly. first of all what you are saying is wrong. It is proven fact that animals don't stick around us because they love us, they stick around because we feed them and give them shelter and show them authority. so sorry to burst your bubble but that bond you have with your dog doesn't really exist. And the fact that you say we don't NEED to kill them is stupid. We need to eat too just like lions need to eat antelop. We need to use their fur to keep warm cuz we weren't born with fur ourselve

Reply

cosmolilly, did it ever occur to you that pretty much every other animal would behave the same or worse (carnivores) as humans if they had our possibilities?

Reply

202, many animals need humans to survive. The only reason why pandas are still around is because we make habitats and stop some prey from killing them.

Reply

I agree... if you can't see things in the road... you need to pull the fuck over. that's dangerous and I do not feel in any way bad for you OP...

you should go to hell because you have no care for any other animal than the human species. humans are the ones that made the world the craphole it is now so cats should be running us over. and you shouldnt say FML you killed 2 poor animals that didnt expect an idiot that cant drive to crush them with a car

Reply

If a cat jumps out in front of you, if your momentum is too high for the brakes to stop you in time, even having an IQ of 200 won't stop you from running it over. The world is a "craphole", yet you type your comment using an expensive computer, sitting in a warm house, and you know where your next meal is coming from. I think you should shut up and appreciate what you have TBH.

33, what about birds? they must be factored. their attacks on airborne vehicles seems to be on the rise as of late

"humans are the ones that made the world the craphole it is now so cats should be running us over"... wow how idiotic can you be to make a statement like this? I like animals just as much as the average person but you can't tell me that you'd even think that one life of an animal equals one life of a man/woman. Jeez... somebody has his/her priorities WAY f. up! 1) accidents happen...the animal was idiotic for trying to cross the street while a car was passing by... 2) If you really

89: Why not? Humans are animals too. Disgusting animals that have done nothing but pollute and waste resources. I see no reason why human life should be valued more than animal life. The cat wasn't "idiotic". If the OP couldn't stop in time, then she must've been driving rather fast. And I doubt cats expect giant, fast-moving hunks of metal to come flying up their territory and crush them.

How is the cat an idiot? This girl is an idiot because if she was paying attention, she would have not hit the poor thing! Same with the second animal!

Are animals less deserving of life than the humans who destroy this wonderful world of beauty with poisonous desecration?

excuse me #8 but would prefer to run over and kill a cat or a child. I'm sorry but if a ran over a child i wouldn't be able to live with myself. btw you can't eat people so....

#18, go look up the word 'predation'. ALL species consider themselves the most important. Ultimately, everything ends up dead anyhow.

Reply

I vaguely support animal rights and everything, but the life of an animal is certainly not as valuable as the life of a human's. You cannot say that people would be in more grief over an animal dying than a human. I'm sure they'd rather their pet cat got ran over than their brother.

Reply

Think about this. Would you kill a rabbit or a baby seal instead of killing Hitler or Osama Bin Ladin?

Reply

That is dumb, the question would be better worded: " Would you rather kill Jaws or Hitler?" you have to compare things of equal hostility. In that case I believe we would rather kill the one who has inflicted the most pain and is dangerous to others.

Reply

I don't care. People and animals are the same and both deserve to live. In fact, animals deserve to live more than people.

Reply

#152, I couldn't have said it better myself. The lives of animals are not insignificant, and accidentally killing an animal is sad, but in the big picture, human lives are more important, and neither group deserves to live any more than the other.

Reply

Is it the animals who make this world so vile? Is it the animals you can't trust in life? Do they backstab you like most humans? Live as much as you want. And I'm quite content with my life, so thank you. However, humans committ terrible deeds, some that cost lives, even their own. Do they really deserve to live more than innocent animals?

Reply

Hey you! Yeah, you, human, a primate, a type of ANIMAL. Humans are also animals, and the only reason everyone's saying "Oh, it wasn't a person, so it's okay!" is because while the life of EVERY SINGLE living thing is equal to any other, is that we (referring to humans as a whole) care more about our species in particular than other animals.
