    Switzerland Outlaws Boiling Lobsters Alive

    It's for the lobster,, won't anyone think of the Lobster.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Only tyrants of a $#@!hole would worry about how I eat my lobster.

    I reached out to Robert Bayer, executive director of The Lobster Institute at the University of Maine, who felt that if you wanted to numb a lobster before killing it, you just needed to put it on ice or in very cold fresh water.
    Kind of ironic. The one time I have seen lobsters scramble and screech for their lives was when they were immersed in fresh (and probably chlorinated) water. Someone had a bathtub filled with live lobster, and someone else thought it would be a good idea to give them some fresh water by turning on the faucet. They tried to avoid it, but it killed them all pretty fast.

    I'll keep that in mind next time I'm in Switzerland.
    They fought the Wars
    They lost.
    They turned friends
    into enemies.
    Who became
    friends of our enemies.
    They stood alone, in splendid isolation,
    And said it was their only choice.

    The founders thought so.

    Clearly, the disease that is working it's way throughout the west is now slowly infecting the Swiss.

    I thought Brian's little story about screaming lobsters trampling each other in a bathtub to escape our chlorinated water was sadder than delicious boiled lobsters.

    New regulations will require food preparers to stun or mechanically destroy a lobster’s brain before immersing it in boiling water.
    And that's supposed to be better?

    There should be a series of injections instead. First to sedate the lobster, then another to stop the heart.

    Its the humane way to do it

    Lobsters have no vocal cords, no organs of any type for audio communication. It's just not possible for them to "scream" in any way we could hear, in any circumstance. The sound you may hear is expanding air bubbles trapped in their shells expanding and finding an avenue of escape from their bodies while they boil.

    They are certainly doing a lot better than USA, regardless of whether you can boil lobsters alive
