    No, I was simply responding to your craziness. I love it when people start equating humans with the things humans eat.

    I do think killing them humanely is ideal, but at the end of the day it's kind of a moot point - you're killing them and eating them.

    You wouldn't happen to be a vegetarian, would you?

    Most humane means least pain, not no pain. We can't directly measure pain so they need to take an educated guess based on time of remaining neural activity or the level of known stress hormones being produced. I have no idea how they arrived at this conclusion.

    Ultimately I think we're splitting hairs here as these are very primitive organisms and we're taking about seconds of suffering.

    Sweden is not the same as Switzerland.

    i can’t speak for the knife method in regards to how long the pain/suffering lasts, but the boiling water method can take upwards of a minute before a lobster will succumb to its demise.

    I thought we were at war with the crab people?




    But on a serious note, this is good news, being boiled alive is wrong... For any living animal, even crab people

    No shit. But thanks for the update. Hey, is water still wet?
    I could not be contrasting the pussyness of SWZ with the brutality of SWD, right? Nah. Simpleton is simple.

    Depends on the temperature of the water and how you put the lobster in. If you go head first at full boil they don't last long. If cooking multiple lobsters, make sure the water comes back to a hard boil after putting one in. Their body will lower the temp of the water and make the next one's death a little more unpleasant than it needs to be.

    i don’t see how putting the lobster in head first will actually have some sort of shortening effect on the duration of their experience in boiling water.

    Their head hits the boiling water before their body cools it.

    And if you don't like it put a knife through its head like I told you the first time.

    no but you’re still not explaining the importance of head first.

    I don't know if I buy that cryo-lobster isn't humane. By all accounts freezing to death is fairly euphoric once hypothermia sets in.
