    I do not care if lobsters feel pain when boiling. They lack anything close to the ability to feel suffering. All their little ganglia are thinking is "get out of this water".

        No, because humans have the brain capacity for suffering. Pain does not equal suffering, only higher-order animals can experience suffering. For lower-order animals, pain is simply a signal to "don't do that again". They don't experience prolongued suffering like humans and apes do. Hell, even dogs lack the ability to suffer. I've seen a dog with a broken leg shake it off and continue on its day. Suffering is not the same as pain.

          what moves it from "pain" to "suffering" if some dude randomly comes by and blasts you with a steam gun?

            Pain is simply a signal from your nociceptors. It's meant to keep you from doing that again.
            Suffering is prolongued mental anguish from pain. We as humans can remember a time when it didn't hurt, and we can ruminate on how much it hurts, and we can wish it didn't hurt. That's suffering. And the fact is that most animals lack the brain power to suffer.

              let's be real here. if i just rolled up on you in the street and blasted you with a steam cleaner you wouldn't be ruminating on better times, you'd just shout "OUCH, FRICK" and try to escape the steam

                That's what I'm saying. Pain receptors only get you to move away from the source of the pain. It's the suffering that happens after being blasted by steam that separates us from the animals. Blast a dog with steam, he'll feel pain, but he won't experience prolonged suffering.

    You’re probably just eating the fricking lobsters too. I have a fishtank and fricking love chowing down on lobster dunked in melted butter. Then, you take the shells and make a lobster stock and make goddamned lobster bisque which is also fricking incredible. Who gives a damn if they feel pain they are absolutely delicious. I eat frois gros too by the way. I’d eat those whole fried baby chicks that the French eat too if that was still a thing. Food is delicious. It is life. You will never ever get my money you jackass.

It is not be all end all measurement for whether an animal is worthy of a quick release or not. When given an option between being happy while experiencing periods of pain and being deeply unhappy with no pain, any normal ration human being would choose the former.
    Animals have no concept of deep fulfillment or the lack of thereof.
    Pain is merely a rudimentary form of inconvenience to them.

            You're just another brainless redditor that hates dogs for no particular reason but the subconscious awareness that they are associated with marriage, children, and humans (AKA white people).

            All "deep fulfillment" is the moment when you are simultaneously sating your monke social instincts while being blissfully unaware that you are just another fricking monkey. It is a state without higher comprehension, because the moment you realize what's going on, you stop being satisfied. THAT is what it means to be human.

            The majority of animals can feel and suffer to some degree. They can place themselves in time and space. They do have an experience, probably as much of an experience as the average Black person at any given moment, which means they are aware of a lot but not everything (until it's too late). But it takes some serious abstract thought to ever call a feeling 'JUST' a feeling. No animal or Black person will ever say fedora tipping shit like "feelings are just chemicals and most of my brain is automated, i'm just unlucky enough to have learned to be aware of it". EVER. Being able to say and understand that is the mark of humanity. Being able to say, understand, and not care about that is the mark of adulthood.

              Exactly. Humans, with their insanely complex perception of abstract concepts and ability to think ourselves into misery, are still shallow fricking animals. And you want me to give a shit about what a thing without a real brain feels?

              Furthermore, getting boiled alive is still a quicker release than the kinds of deaths animals experience in the wild.

        I'm pretty sure that's the point of splitting it in half and, in fact, is what my parents have always done whenever we've had lobster, either the American ones or the med ones (idk wtf they're called in English; they're both just "lobster" to me)
        They also clean crabs while still alive, holding the claws with one hand while ripping the shell off with the other and rinsing under running water to clear the gunk out.
        I, on the other hand, have only ever dropped them into boiling water, both lobster and crab.

        Yeah but that "pain" could be more of a "move away from this probably-lethal sensory experience", a non-emotional response that is honestly just computer input and output.

        We have pain, but then we have panic. Our emotional state intensifies the experience because we have far more complicated survival methods. If a bundle of separated ganglia can emulate this, I'd be quite surprised.

      they still feel pain, and yes this thread is bait but its a nice moment to explain that, lobsters, crabs and crustaceans in general feel pain while being boiled alive, if you kill them prior to that it would be the best option, and no, the myth about "needing to be boiled alive otherwise blabla" is fake as hell, just cruelty. in conclusion anons. eat the crab but kill it before boiling it

      they should just flash freeze them like they do with the crabs and lobsters you can buy in the store. has to be better than being boiled alive.

      You are genuinely, absolutely, unironically better off going to Reddit to talk about animals at this point.

      That's why I come to Wauf for cooking tips instead of Wauf.

      If you are so fricking moronic that you come to Wauf to hate on animals, that's on you.
      We mostly love animals and plants and living things in general.
      With the comparisons that you mentioned, I already know you are frequent on those 3 boards, which already discards your opinion.
      I'm sorry blue boards are not you sikrit club anymore, but not all Wauf is like /vt/ or /misc/, and in case you don't like it, you are free to leave.

      Wauf likes animals. The problem however is that it tends to like animals a bit TOO much.
