Don't you think it's best to err on the side of caution?

strawberry float that, if an insect ever got the chance it would kill you and everyone you cared about.

Col. Hans Landa: If a rat were to scamper through your front door right now, would you greet it with hostility?

Perrier LaPadite: I suppose I would.

Col. Hans Landa: Has a rat ever done anything to you to create this animosity you feel towards them?

Perrier LaPadite: Rats spread diseases. They bite people.

Col. Hans Landa: Rats were the cause of the bubonic plague, but that's some time ago. I propose to you, any disease a rat could spread, a squirrel could equally carry. Would you agree?

Perrier LaPadite: Oui.

Col. Hans Landa: Yet I assume you don't share the same animosity with squirrels that you do with rats, do you?

Perrier LaPadite: No.

Col. Hans Landa: But they're both rodents, are they not? And except for the tail, they even rather look alike, don't they?

Perrier LaPadite: It's an interesting thought, Herr Colonel.

I actually had to look that up, not having seen the movie. So, without any context, are you saying I’m basically a Nazi? That would be quite distressing, especially in light of the Nazi thread (please don’t punch me).

I was just echoing your comments about the hypocrisy of liking one type of animal (mouse/rabbit/squirrel) but not liking another (rat) when they're all essentially the same small type of mammal.

Also yes you are a Nazi.

Reminds me when a butterfly flew in the other day.

My girlfriend: "Aww, a butterfly, can you help it get back outside?"

Compare that to when a moth flies in.

My girlfriend: *murders moth in disgust*

Literally just because one is colourful and pretty, while the other is brown and ugly.

Moths are the ghosts of butterflies, everyone knows that.

Please understand, this affliction crosses boundaries.
