Could this theoretically work?

Since fruit flies spawn new generations in only two weeks, big evolutionary changes would be visible after a few years.

Here's the question;

If a scientist were to make some sort of airtight chamber and pump it full of pure oxygen constantly, put fruit flies in there and give them enough sustenance every day to have them healthy, alive, and breeding. Could you, theoretically, since insects' sizes depend on the oxygen, produce gigantic fruit flies within years?

Yes.
This experiment has been done using cockroaches.

Thanks mate; just Googled it thanks to you and TL;DR it worked making them bigger but not modern gigantic bugs since they're apparently genetically hard-wired to stay a certain size.

Why the fuck do catfags always justify and excuse their cats' bad behavior and blame the victims of their aggression? Why do they justify bad behavior even when it's done to them? Why do they let an animal literally bite the hand that feeds them and get away with it?

What's the point of having a pet that you can only interact with on their terms? You have all the expenses and hassle of taking care of a living thing but none of the supposed benefits. Is the toxo meme real or is something else going on? Genuinely curious, only shitbull owners are similar in their psychology.

Humans is not AN animal. It's a species.

If you're going that route, insects like ants and mosquitoes own humans as do bacteria and viruses.
>>
>>2577008
T-rex is the apex of terrestrial predators of probably all time periods, had the Cretaceous extinction not occurred its descendants would have probably even more successful and adaptable predators.
OP forgot to leave out its amazing immune system and regenerative abilities as seen on the Wyrex fossils.

I might have killed my dog, my best friend, or at least caused him a lot of pain. There was a small cyst on his back that I just wouldn't leave alone, and it got infected. He's been on antibiotics since Friday but it's not getting better and I'm taking him back to the vet today.

What the fuck have I done? How should I kill myself if something worse happens to him?

>There was a small cyst on his back that I just wouldn't leave alone, and it got infected
what did you do to it
>>
>>2577365
I'd squeeze the stuff out of it whenever I went to clean it. It was kind of the same compulsion that causes me to pick at my own face and back. I thought as long as I squeezed from the bottom and gently that it wouldn't rupture internally, but I was wrong, and my buddy is paying for it. If I had just left it alone, it would have just stayed there and not gotten worse.
