    There is a difference between indirect and direct harm. Indirect harm cannot be helped.

    This is why they must be eaten.

    I have this primal urge to eat large animals that would eat me.
    Exception being wolves/coyotes and of course large cats.

    Large cats are welcome to my remains if they win the fight.


    Because kitties.



    Man.. seafood sounds really good right now, though.
    (not octopus, though. I'll spare them)

    I was served a baby octopus at a restaurant. I guess he was supposed to be a tasty little garnish with my entree, but I couldn't stop laughing long enough to eat him. Imagine a little octopus fully intact, eight tiny tentacles dangling off your fork, as you slowly bring it in closer to your lips for a closer view.

    Yeah that's pretty common in many Asian restaurants. I find it a waste because many people here will not eat them and so they died for nothing.

    Mnay restaurants in Asia follow deplorable practices of eating live seafood. Sometimes they just remove their tentacles a to order, leaving them to writhe and suffocate on the cutting bored until all limbs have been ordered, after which they kill them by pulling the brain out through it' stomach.
    Other times, they are just set on top of a steaming pile of cooked seafood while they are slowly cooked alive by the steam. Horribly painful.

    With other shellfish which need to boiled alive there's debate about how well developed their nervous systems are, ie whether or not they feel any pain but Octopi are very highly evolved creatures, there is no doubt they feel pain.

    I've tried octopus sushi, which was tentacle with suckers. It was chewy and had an unpleasant taste. It's up there with sea urchin on my list of things I wouldn't eat again unless I was stranded at sea.

    I'm surprised to hear that. The unnecessary torture leaves me speechless. How are humans capable of this?

    I'm okay with a quick death. I'm guessing death would be instant, as long as the water is boiling when the octopus is introduced to it.
