Links of Interest: Japanese Bug Fights

I always feel a little bad about watching these, but damn if they’re not incredibly fascinating. On Japanese Bug Fights they pit two insects against one another in a fight to the death. Say what you will about these Asian Micheal Vicks, this is as close as you’re gonna get to real monster fights until we start genetically engineering them ourselves.

  1. If an African Lion were put into a cage with a Komodo dragon, or a wolf and an eagle, and they were incited to fight, it would be the same as this. But because Insects and Arachnids are involved, it’s “o.k.” Ah the hypocrisy.

  2. @Goatboy:

    You’re quite right of course. But it doesn’t change the car crash style fascination of it. It’s the Roman coliseum made tiny and populated with creatures that are even easier to dehumanize because they are absolutely alien and inhuman. And incidentally…the lion would totally win.
