Do they also feel melancholy? I would imagine living on the sea-floor would be pretty depressing.

Isildur: ftfa: Research has also shown naked mole rats may be immune to pain

No, it didn't. It indicated a lack of sensitivity to acid and capsaicin. They evidently still feel pain from things like pinches.


Are you saying I need to quit pinching the naked mole rat?

gerbilpox: Elwood's first experiment showed that prawns whose antennae were doused with caustic soda vigorously groomed their antennae, as if trying to ameliorate pain.

Next up: pulling the wings off of flies. making it to the Cook County Assesor's Office on time

FTFY.

More and more, the efforts to show that other animals are qualitatively different from humans relies on the increasingly tenuous concept of the "self" or "consciousness". It seems pretty obvious that the data is pointing to that distinction making as much sense as "souled" and un-souled". Now, as to whether such things make it impossible to eat soft-shelled crab I remain an agnostic. A hungry agnostic.

CipollinaFan: Smgth: Abacus9: Smgth: I think I speak for my fellow Marylanders when I say 'Fark crabs girly feelings, they're delicious'. I like to think its the pain that MAKES them delicious. Pain and Old Bay.

/Midly related note, when my aunt lived in Maine, we'd get lobsters and before cooking them, we'd let them loose on the kitchen floor and let her Husky run around scaring the shiatte out of them. I also like to think torture increases the flavor.
//Not that being boiled alive isn't torture.

I never understood the fascination with Old Bay. I tried it a few time, it's alright, but I would never ruin crab with it. Just some butter sauce.

Ok, all you Old Bay heretics (or possibly apostates) outta my thread, I'm threadjacking this mother and banning y'all!

Old Bay does not RUIN a crab, it IMPROVES it.

/I WILL admit that a little goes a long a way and too much is gross.
//Take this thread to Cuba!

Nothing tastes better than crabs steamed with old bay and vinegar except maybe a fried soft shelled crab sammich.

/Don't you dare dip it in butter either. That is the true blasphemy.


As a girl when I grew up in Maryland, my neighbor would let them run around on the enclosed patio before steaming them, just for fun, and us kids would run and squeal. They were nasty and angry but sure tasted good. When you grow up with Old Bay on the crabs, there's no other way to eat them. Now out in California, I find if I put some Old Bay on "regular" crab cakes, it brings the taste out and gives memories. No crab better than the blue crab though...

Sorry animals, we'd like to treat you with decency, but this cartoonishly ridiculous book tells us we're not supposed to.

No of course not. Haven't you ever seen that documentary series Spongebob Squarepants?

Sweet and slightly briny. It's a huge practical joke God's playing on the Jews. It's actually part 2 in the You Can't Eat That series of jokes on them.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: I'm not a biologist, but that sounds like bullshiat to me.

Learning to avoid sensations that are associated with something dangerous like electricity just means that it's insect brain can detect it and associate it with danger. It doesn't mean that it hurts.

What a waste of research money. They should be trying to discover what makes them so damn tasty.


We know the answer to that

Was watching "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" the other night and they had some seafood place that served soft-shelled crab sandwiches. The thing was still moving when the guy dredged it in flour and dropped it in the deep fryer. Now THAT'S fresh.
