    emotions are stupid they ruin the majority of things
    we could all just chill without them.

    yup could possible be a bit boring sometimes ngl but we wouldn't have emotions so we wouldn't care
    also we wouldn't feel as though we're missing out on anything cause we wouldn't have drives would we?

    i guess, this is where drives come into it.
    I'm guessing we wouldn't have sex for pleasure then, we might just using implantation if noone had emotions? or we might see sex as like a job or something, like just as we go school cause it's part of life etc people might have planned sex to create babies

    Have you watched the film Equilibrium? It's essentially about a dystopian society where everyone takes medication to suppress all emotions. I think watching it would count as "research".

    Some of the world's greatest inventions were made due to being affected or motivated by their emotions
    But I guess a reason for not having emotions would probably be because of starting of wars and bad problems etc

    Not really. Just survival instinct. Nature.
