Are humans the laziest animals on the planet as a whole?

Yes there are slow animals, and those that go steal food instead of killing it themselves, but don't all other animals simply try to survive? Are there any animals that are actually just lazy?

This is very debatable and a good question. While it could be argued, just think. How superior is our brains to an animals? In most cases, much better. Allowing us to make things to make life easier on ourselves. So, are we knowledgeable or lazy?

It would be inaccurate to say all humans, I would not demean honest working folks like that. But there are certainly some shiftless, entitled house plants in mankind's ranks.

Great description.

During a broadcast of the Olympic Gymnastics a Russian gymnast bombed out. She was shattered and her coach, a large, stony-faced woman sat beside her, completely ignoring her. The commentator said that she was about as much use as an unplugged refrigerator. I reckon she'd have qualified as one of your house plants.

No animal will spend more energy than it has to. Plant eaters spend much of their time laying in the shade; carnivores as well don't do anything they don't have to in order to get enough to eat and to protect themselves and their young.
Humanity is the species that wants to have more than it needs, that has the concept of luxury. Anybody who does only what they need to do in order to survive is counted as lazy unless they are striving to accumulate more than they need.

Humans are not animals. Created with reasoning and care for earth and animals. Man has become selfish so man is not caring for the earth and one another like suppose to be.

Humans may be lazy but the important thing to remember is that we are humans and no matter what anyone may say we are NOT animals we have never been animals and never will be animals. God created us in His image. Lazy yes, I admit I am lazy, but remember I am a human child of my God.

NO, that is a bold face lie, God created mankind as humans NOT animals, He also created the animals. Mankind is created in Gods image and He made us a living soul, animals are not living souls.

And yes animal is a derogatory comment in my opinion. And we all know what that means: " an opinion and $1.00 will get you a coffee an Burger King.

Jerus, yours is the only opinion an this matter, we are animals and that's a FACT. Are DNA is 98% similar to chimps, heck it's even 60% similar to plants. All life is connected, it's attitudes like yours that are causing humans to defile the Earth like it's all here for us to destroy as we wish. Now you can see another reason why those of us that care about this real life don't care for religions like yours.

I don't think so, Nwarguy. Any animal will do what's necessary for its sustenance, and some require more activity than others. A lion chasing down its prey will use a lot more energy than a crocodile that just lies and waits till something tempting comes within range.

Humans no longer NEED to be as labor-intensive as in our hunter-gatherer days, or even during the agrarian times, and civilization makes it possible to reap the benefits of our progress without over-extending ourselves. And yet there's still plenty of activity involved in earning a living, providing for a family, and utilising our recreation.

Then of course you've got old geezers like me. We're a different kettle of fish. We've been there, done that, and now we can sit back and put our feet up. Now THAT is lazy.

No. Being lazy is subjective. What is your meaning to lazy? But no If all humans were lazy we would have died long ago mostly because humans don't have any real protection unless we use our resources and are smart.
