And i agree with Chinmay that some questions here at duolingo should be peaceful and ethical. It would be nice if this would be a safe place.
A sentence like "i have a lion" is also not good, as there are always people that start to think about that and want a lion or other wild animal in the house. Many animals get killed whilst being smuggled to pet "lovers" (not) like that. Many animals lead horrible lives in small cages because of that.
Be creative and make ethical sentences, we can still learn italian (and other languages just as well!)
That's the reality, no matter we like it or not. The stray or village cats eat birds and cute mouses. Nobody gives them Wiskas... Other smart sentences like: "Gli uomini scrivono nello zucchero" require more comments, I think. For suggesting it is normal to waste the hardly produced sugar for writing in it...
Poor little fella. Oh well. The Circle of Life takes everything at some point. May he rest in pieces. Oh, did I say that? I meant peace. ;)
Lately (since hearts disappeared) DL does seem to be over-repeating - at least on the Android App. If you make a mistake in a lesson, it asks you the same questions more times (not just the one you got wrong). I have even had the same question asked in exactly the same way twice running!
