I can’t believe how many people are SHOCKED by the news that crustaceans may feel pain. You know all meat comes from animals that feel pain, right? And sure, I get it. We don’t boil cows alive. But I can’t believe no one thought it was possible that doing so to lobsters is kinda mean. (And yet, I am pro-carnivore!)

    Tom studied Marine Biology as an undergrad and he always said that all crustaceans have nervous systems, so… pain as we know it? Maybe. But they definitely feel what is going on, so he (and I) never understood the assertion that they don’t feel anything when THEY ARE BOILED. Science has been pretty certain about this for a while, now.
