#2 35+ year old people, Who wait for months until someone turns 18 to hit on them.

The day they turn 18, they are in their DM’s, etc.

Why is this creepy? Because they are predators and trying to seduce (read: manipulate) someone who is adult by law, but pretty much still a child. And if the law allowed younger, then they would do it.

#3 Groping women for up to 10s in Italy.

#7 I babysat for this couple that had a 3 and 6 year old. They both still breastfed. They were pretty normal otherwise. I don’t even mind extended breastfeeding. Like the 3 year old was whatever. Seeing that 6 year old pull down her Mother’s shirt and latch was creepy.

#13 Divorce lawyer here. People fighting like mad to get the dog in the divorce and then turning it over to a shelter out of spite. Although now in CA there can be SERIOUS consequences for doing that due to recent law changes about pets and divorce, but it wasn’t always that way.

#20 Really specific, but this is my job, so I know about it. In the EU there is a lot of restrictions on how you handle animals for research (Directive 2010/63/EU).

But there is no restrictions on the kind of animal DATA you use for research, as long as you didn’t collect the data from living animal subjects in an EU member state.

So you can USE data that was drawn from animals living in the most appalling conditions and in contravention with any and all animal welfare standards and its perfectly legal.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
