A Shark Massacre
From Redditor /u/pewnanner
A lot of people enjoy Shark Fin Soup and maybe some don’t realize what the fisherman do to get the fins. Look up video if you want but they bring the shark on board, cut off all the fins, and chuck it back still alive to writhe and float and sufferIs this gross?
Eat Your Greens
From Redditor /u/kiwiposter
I worked in New Product Development for a bit. It's not good lol
The entire aim of the companies who we were working with, was to sell less food for more. So finding anyway possible to add water, air, or fibre. Often all three.
A whole industry dedicated to destroying food, for money.
That's why everyone is getting fat. The food doesn't have the same nutrient content it used to, so you have to consume more. And it's entirely on purpose.Is this gross?
Spiderman's Favorite Fruit
From Redditor /u/corsaiLucascorso
Cranberry harvesting. There are a lot and I mean a ridiculous amount of spiders especially Wolf spiders everywhere. They crawl up the machines, they crawl up the people harvesting them it’s a nightmare.Is this gross?
A Harvesting Horror Story
From Redditor /u/PoorCorrelation
I was surprised to learn from people who’ve worked on farms just how bloody harvesting crops is. There’s not really a good way to clear out wild animals so all of them get ripped to shreds by the heavy machinery moving through the fields. I miss being able to assume no animals died making my produce.Is this gross?
