Also, animals eat for survival. Those people were clearly doing that for pleasure, and it's sick.

Our very survival regularly depends on the deaths of other species. That's life. There's not a thing alive that doesn't owe it's continued existence to some other poor bastard who died.

At least these people can actually confront the reality of their situation, instead of always endeavoring to keep the burden of life out of sight and out of mind.

I thought it was that, but I don't much remember the Navigators looking like that either. Mind you, I don't think I've gotten past the first 15 minutes of the 1980's version (I prefer the one from 2000), so it may in fact be there...

If I sit through it and it isn't there, we'll have words. :p

I may not be a vegan, but I do think, if you are going to eat an animal, you ought to make sure it doesnt suffer when you do. Okay, I'm sure some will say squid are such simple creatures that they dont feel pain or something, but I'm sure those things have some kind of nervous system and react to pain. If I eat squid, I'd want to know it didnt suffer when it died.

Same thing with lobster - I cant for the life of me figure out why they need to boiled alive.

I'm not afraid of drowning, but I am afraid of swimming in large bodies of water when I consider what could be hanging around a mile or two below my unsuspecting feet. In my most paranoid phobic imaginings, however, I never came up with elbowed squid. The swimming bits of Shadow of the Colossus freaked me the hell out, and it's because who knows what could be down there? Things like this!

The deeps of the ocean is freaky. I was watching Superman the animated series. And the end of the first Metallo episodes he sinks to the bottom of the ocean and has to walk back to land. I think even as an invincible robot, being somewhere that you can't see, with all the crazy stuff down there would make me end my robot life.

Same thing with lobster - I cant for the life of me figure out why they need to boiled alive.

The moment the lobster dies, several chemical processes occur that quickly make the flesh inedible at best , and poisonous at worst. Basically, the digestive enzymes in the body start to work on the lobster's flesh turning it into something the consistency of marshmallow, and smells like the worst thing ever.

It's for a similar reason if you buy fresh whole fish, they'll come gutted, and if you ever go fishing the first thing you do with the damn things is gut them.

It's also the reason clams and mussels are steamed live. Dead shellfish = deadly food. Remember kids, if you eat clams/mussels, and any of them didn't open during the cooking processes, they died before cooking. Do not eat.

By boiling them alive (and they die almost immediately this way) those processes are prevented from occuring, although if you're clumsy and the lobster has a chance to freak out, it'll also ruin the meat.

If you want to be humane about it, put the lobster in the freezer for a few minutes (10-15). It'll force the lobster into a hibernation-like sleep, and then you can immediately drop it in the water.


Edit: Sometimes I wonder what *useful* info has been pushed out of my brain by all this weird shit I know.

That reminds me of Gothic 2, which had a great solution to the problem of players just swimming out farther and farther into the ocean. Instead of the silly invisible walls ala Fable 2 and other games, in Gothic 2 if you swam out far enough a cutscene took over showing you being attacked and eaten by a giant sea monster. It freaked me out every time.

Nothing makes me want to spill rear water more.
(Seriously rear water...)


There's a lake in the poconos in a state park called "Promised Land" near me. The lake was man made, meaning it was flooded by damming up the ends of it. In the middle of this lake there are a few pieces of wood sticking out of the water, although not very high, looking almost like a stationary log. While out on the row boat on a sunny afternoon I got a closer look at the source of this mysterious "lake wood" To my surprise they belonged to fully grown and still standing trees in the under the lake. I believe on the depth monitor it read b/w 30-40ft, some of the deepest parts of the lake, so you can understand these were pretty big trees.

The CREEPY part was that the lake water was your typical greenish in color, but not completely opaque, so you could see down the branch a few feet and see all the other branches of the tree, barren mind you, but still attached covered by the water. As you followed them down they disappeared into the darkness of the water. Looking at it, I had one of the creepiest feelings of my life as if some underwater creature could easily run up those branches, much like that of a leopard, and literally frighten me to piss from my eye sockets. So yeah, I'm not too fond of large bodies of water, only because it has a way to make you feel very vulnerable.
