    So how the fuck does Howard's halibut die before its prepared for him?

    Do they inject the fish and put it down like they did Bianca?

    in defense of howard (and i can't believe i still write that, probably about 3 times a year), i don't eat lobster either because of that. boiled alive seems pretty fucking cruel. surprised he eats fish, since they basically asphyxiate to death.

    Fuck lobsters. There were pre-historic ones that could eat a human, and probably did eat our monkey-like ancestors.[​IMG]

    [h=1]Hot Debate: Do Lobsters Feel Pain?[/h]

    A new study out of Norway concludes that it's unlikely lobsters feel pain, stirring up a long-simmering debate over whether the valuable seafood suffers when it's being cooked.

    Animal activists for years have claimed that lobsters feel excruciating agony when they are cooked, and that dropping one in a pot of boiling water is tantamount to torture.

    The study, which was funded by the Norwegian government and written by a scientist at the University of Oslo, suggests that lobsters and other invertebrates probably don't suffer even if lobsters do tend to thrash in boiling water.

    "Lobsters and crabs have some capacity of learning, but it is unlikely that they can feel pain," the study concluded.

    The 39-page report was aimed at determining if invertebrates should be subject to animal welfare legislation as Norway revises its animal welfare law. The report looked at invertebrate groups such as insects, crustaceans, worms and mollusks and summarized the scientific literature dealing with feelings and pain among those creatures without backbones.

    It concluded that most invertebrates — including lobsters, crabs, worms, snails, slugs and clams — probably don't have the capacity to feel pain.

    Lobster biologists in Maine have maintained for years that the lobster's primitive nervous system and underdeveloped brain are similar to that of an insect. While lobsters react to different stimuli, such as boiling water, the reactions are escape mechanisms, not a conscious response or an indication of pain, they say.

    The Norwegian report backs up a study in the early 1990s at the University of Maine and reinforces what people in the lobster industry have always contended, said Bob Bayer, executive director of the Lobster Institute, a research and education organization in Orono.

    "We've maintained all along that the lobster doesn't have the ability to process pain," Bayer said.

    let the debate begin :dontknow:

    Does a fish feel pain when you stick a knife up its asshole and slit it to the gills or when you cut its head off?

    did anyone see that Bizarre Foods where he went to that NYC sushi place where they would cut the lobsters in half so the lobsters would have to watch you eat it before it died? Asians are fucking nuts.

    I went fishing for halibut in alaska. When I brought the monster into the boat the captain clubbed it on the head until it stopped flopping and then filleted the thing while throwing body parts to the trailing seagulls. That was a great time.
