they die pretty fast in the pan.
Lobster is nice. that's why people eat it. I can't even believe I'm having this discussion.
Peopple eat it for the same reason they'd eat a carrot or a steak, it provides the nutrients that they require at that point.



That'd be because humans aren't shellfish. Does a lobster even have the same makeup and nervous system as a human? And they aren't burned; they're boiled.

Anyway, this is completely daft, humans have been eating animals since the dawn of their existance, it's hardly going to stop because of new found lobster sympathy.
I agree on the animal topic. I love animals, but only to a point. Humans rely on animals as a source of food. That's nature. It's just silly to become a vegetarian for the animal's sake. :confused:

i was actually thinking of going into councelling when ive completed this degree but the way i see it is that you learn to solve other people's problems and therefore should be able to solve your own.
Although its strange that a lot of psychologists are odd :confused:
Everyone has issues and the point of counseling is so that someone else can see your problems from a different aspect and help you through them. its easier to see peoples problems and not your own.

We psychologists are an eccentric bunch but heck we're interesting!

Thats why what im saying sounds daft, humans have always seen it as ok, they will never stop no because its too much effort but if your telling me that someone's desire for the taste of a lobster is more important than a lobsters life, then there must be something wrong with me cause i think its pathetic and wrong. Shouldn't it somehow at least be confimed that lobsters don't have the same nervous system before boiling them for human desire

given the fact I'd rather they found a cure for cancer than researched to what degree a lobster feels pain?

Are you just bothered about lobsters, or are we talking cows, sheep and piggies too?
LOL, I loved the way you said that.

I have no idea how lobsters think and feel. I would think that it's pretty difficult and also pretty irrelevant, given the fact I'd rather they found a cure for cancer than researched to what degree a lobster feels pain?

Are you just bothered about lobsters, or are we talking cows, sheep and piggies too?
the whole lot really, but lobsters are killed in one of the cruelest ways, yeah a cure for cancer is more important than researching lobsters, maybe they could stop boiling lobsters while they concentrate on cancer research?
Its irrelevant to humans cause they are the ones getting the benifit.

I would think water as it boils at a lower temperature, which would mean it would kill the person slower, thus being more painful!! Oh and I know it is painful as I have suffered second degree burns from a boiling water spillage before, still have no nerve endings in my arm!! lol!

Oh god, come summer I'm a fully fledged ninja with a teatowel.

I prowl around the house swatting wasps, stunning them, putting them in the toilet and letting them drown. I hate wasps. I hate them with the fire of a thousand suns.
hehehe!! I get them a little bit with raid so they are like crippled and then i use tweezers to pull their wings off. Next comes the magnifying glass!! lol!
