    I don't understand the allure of a pet that doesn't love you back. Maybe I'll learn via this thread.
    Your Breaking Bad finale theory sucks.

    I am sure there is an in-depth scientific explanation for how love works

    We have a hedgehog and while it was cool for awhile, I agree on the love you back part and said we shouldn't get it.

    But kids talked me into it and they forget we even have it most of the time.

    I agree with this 100%. I really want the scientific explanation to this.

    I've had a snake (Florida Kingsnake) and a green iguana. They aren't pets in the same way my dogs (and previously, cats) are. Although I handled the snake occaisionally and she wasn't mean-spirited (except to mice), it was more of a enjoy her looks pet, much like a fish aquarium. The iguana was similar but more interactive. Mine was actually real friendly (some are just mean and hard to handle/deal with) and would hang out near you on the couch, sit on your shoulder, etc.

    We have a chinchilla if that's considered exotic. Basically a fancy rabbit. The thing is basically pointless but it was free and were trying to teach our 12 year-old responsibility. Not working.
