"You don't have to feel sorry for the fish I catch, they don't feel it at all when the hook goes through" - people who like to go fishing But for real, none of them have ever been a fish, so they can't fucking know. They're just saying it because everybody else is saying it (which probably started someday with a bunch of scientists saying it) and it stops them from having to think about what they are doing when you call 'em up on it.
"No, it's really okay to kick the horse in the side to make it go faster, they don't feel it at all" - One of the people leading the group when I was taking a class in horse-back riding. Now, I wonder... If the horse doesn't feel it AT ALL, how come the horse reacts to it, huh?
The fish thing might be true. It seems smaller animals, or ones that are at the bottom of the food chain and are likely to face a violent death due to becoming a meal for something else - sometimes don't have much pain-response since spending a life frequently being nipped at by other animals would be very difficult if they felt pain to the same extent larger animals do. Same goes for insects and spiders. They do respond to an attack as a survival thing of course, but they probably don't experience pain, or not to the extent we do. Having one of their limbs torn off probably hurts them less than us falling over and scraping our knee
I know it might be true what they are saying, but in this topic the point sort of was that they say it as an undoubtable fact, while they simply cannot know for sure! They've never been a fish, so they don't know what it is like, neither have they ever done proper experients/research themselves to be able to conclude this with some degree of truth. So it is nothing more than a line they say to clear their own conscience.

Staring at the screen for too long will make your eyes go square. Carrots will give you night-vision. Needles don't hurt. I'll only be a couple of minutes. We'll take you there next week. They're just jealous.
