Jimmy Kimmel Asked People If They Care About Saving 'Homo Sapiens' From Extinction—And We're All Doomed

Jimmy Kimmel Live/YouTube

Jimmy Kimmel reminded his viewers that there are many species on the planet on the verge of extinction.

Sadly, many of us could care less.

Kimmel enlisted his staff on Jimmy Kimmel Live to take to the streets and asked if civilians would be worried about the extinction of one particular species:

homo sapiens.

That's people, like you and me. Humans are homo sapiens.

The result had embarrassingly surprising results and affirmed that some people really do need saving.

"Are the homo sapiens worth saving?" asked the interviewer, to which the young gentleman thought long and hard before confirming, "yes."

When asked why, he said:

"'Cuz there are a lot of animals now that are extinct and were amazing back in the day. Like dinosaurs, they're extinct, and someday we could look back and be like, 'Oh, we didn't save them (the homo sapiens)' and so maybe they can be like, the next dinosaur."

There are plenty more cringe-worthy responses to come.

You can watch them all in the YouTube clip, below.

We Asked People If They Care About Homo Sapien Extinction

One pedestrian along Hollywood Blvd. near where Kimmel films his show, offered a compromise so that we may co-exist with the homo sapiens.

"We have to find a way to live with the homo sapiens in a way where they don't affect us and we don't affect them. Kinda like in a separation type of way."

Great, so he wants to bring segregation back in 2019.

One interviewee was not one to beat around the bush. The woman flat-out admitted she did not know what the word meant.

But, instead of taking the opportunity to enlighten herself with a clarification, she answered the question anyway and said the near-impending extinction is sad, but:

"at the end of the day, I don't care."

Another woman claimed she "saw one once" at a zoo. When the interviewer asked her to describe said species, she described him as, "furry," big," "gorilla-looking," and saw it was "picking his 'watcha-dilly.'"

It makes one wonder what is exactly not taught in schools.

Seriously, do these people think anthropology is Anthrolopologie, a clothing store for women?

Or that homosexuals need to be isolated from society because at the end of the day, people don't care?

Kimmel posed the question in response to hundreds of scientists warning us that humanity is facing an existential threat as ecosystems and wild populations are rapidly deteriorating, threatening 1 million species of land and marine life due to human activity.

According to The Huffington Post, Josef Settele, a research ecologist, said:

"The essential, interconnected web of life on Earth is getting smaller and increasingly frayed. This loss is a direct result of human activity and constitutes a direct threat to human well-being in all regions of the world."

God, save the human race. Maybe people will be the downfall of homo sapiens.

We carry all sorts of things we might need with us on a regular basis: our cell phones, wallets, a couple of adhesive bandages, that loose change that always seems to be in the bottom of your pocket unless you actually need it. Some people though, have taken this to the extreme.

There is always that someone we've lusted after for way too long. When suddenly they show interest, somehow it ends up all falling a part, for better or for worse.
