It's interesting to ponder the worth of an object or individual under different circumstances. Society places more value on a kid's life so the gorilla was shot, but suppose Seth Rogen broke into the enclosure knowing full well it was dangerous. If I were in charge, I wouldn't have shot the gorilla and I don't think there'd be much of a controversy.
This scenario was posed in an old tv episode: If a building was burning and you could save either your cat/dog or a priceless Van Gogh painting, which do you save?
Here's where you and I differ I suppose.
I see no use inventing and getting angry over a scenario that is likely not to ever exist in your lifetime. It's a waste of energy and you're getting upset for no reason. If it's something that could reasonably happen, then fine. But it isn't.

O'clock is a funny thing, it's a contraction of "of the clock", I suppose. I guess when clocks first came out and somebody asked you when you should meet up, and you answered, "10." They'd reply, "10 what? 10 crows of the rooster? 10 full moons hence? 10 shakes of a lambs tail? Speak plainly, kind sir."
