    yet no one cares to use worms as fish bait or kill wasps and ants, or even mice!

    Do worms even have the capacity to be traumatized by anything?

    Even if it doesn't harm them, it's a bit sad and unnatural to keep them confined within a toilet.

    And imagine if one of those things slithered up the toilet wall and crawled up your ass. Gross! I thought the occasional splash of toilet water hitting the butt-cheeks was bad enough. Worm-backsplash would be even worse.

    If you were on the toilet long enough for one to do that and you not know it then something is wrong with you anyway :D

    The amount of thought you put into these types of posts never ceases to amaze me.

    Spending 20, sometimes 30 minutes on the toilet seems like a rather unproductive way to spend my time, so I may as well use it productively by multi-tasking, preferrably by catching up on some reading. The Iliad is a masterpiece, although parts of the book make me tense up a bit. It could be a blessing with this worm toilet, though.

    The idea that worms have any idea of what's actually going on at any given moment, let alone care that they're stuck in a toilet, is absurd. Free food!

    and to think that in some parts of the world humans are dying of starvation and disease and someone is worrying about worms being traumatized???:confused:

    Yes, but probably not on a psychological level.

    Of course, even if they could be, this would still be absurd because worms eat **** for Alf's sake. It's like asking if a millionare is being psychologically traumatized by having money spontaneously generate itself in his safe.
