No. I unfortunately do have issues about eating things that are still alive due to the fact that I don't want to give it an unhumane death by eating it's insides while it still feels them.

Having cleaned and eaten freshly caught fish, I see no problem with this. What's the difference if the head is on the plate or in a bucket somewhere? Either way it's still twitching away.

Disgusting.

I swear, Asians are the worst offenders when it comes to this kind of stuff. My friend, MadameNoir, sent me one of those Taboo videos on food, and these Asians eat all kinds of animals, from snakes to monkeys to turtles. It's not the type of animal that bothers me, it's the way they kill those animals.

They cut the snake's gall bladder while it's still alive. Couldn't watch the video after 5 minutes.




I hate snakes, but it doesn't deserve that kind of treatment.

What was that internet quote? "You can tell a man's nature by how he treats animals?" that is so true. So I always laugh when people come to me saying humans are above animals, b**** please, we're below animals, at least animals kill their prey before eating them.

Humans are TRULY DESPICABLE. --Death Note.


While I won't argue with your views on people you chose a bad example to illustrate it

***Warning: More graphic than the fish video****

I believe, as a human I should have the decency to kill my food before I eat it. So no I wouldn't eat it, it seems extremely cruel and unnecessary.

I like all the people that complain about the pain something goes through being eaten alive etc... Do they not realize that in the animal kingdom this is how it's usually done? Humans are the exception not the norm.

The above being stated I would never eat a live animal simply cause I'd find it too gross to stomach. I like food good and dead. Not to mention I have vegetarian leanings ;-) [but do enjoy occasional meatyness].

Oh, so it's all just fine to eat a poor apple that's still alive, but a live fish is out of the question?
...I'm sensing some discrimination here.


What's so inhumane about eating food live, anyway? It's eat or be eaten- regardless of the preparation. As long as it's safe to eat, that is. If the situations were reversed, I doubt we'd be shown the same mercy...

I don't like seafood barring a couple sushi rolls, crab stuffed into things, such as mushrooms. Also, shrimp. And if they count, fishsticks.
Other then that, I don't like seafood. And live seafood sounds especially repugnant to me. To eat?
Would not eat. Would squirm if I had to eat it, or even had to watch someone eat it. I prefer to eat dead things. Hell, I can't even eat shrimp that have the eyes attached.

Let me respond to that question with a haiku. *ahem*

Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope
Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope
Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope

Without stating the obvious inhumanity of such a dish. The meal is also served raw and I don't like raw fish. I'd prefer not to get a parasitic infection from eating raw meat.

Exactly what I was going to say.

It's a a tad unappealing to have it's head sitting on the plate gasping right next to my meal but it wouldn't stop me from eating it.

No, but that has more to do with me disliking seafood than the whole cruelty aspect.


Apparently there's no animal cruelty involved. They kill the fish, then pour salt and soy sauce to keep its muscles spasming:

Youtube commenter: "They are not cut alive. They are killed and sliced, after setting the plate and right before serving they pour soy sauce or a salt over the fish to make its muscles spasm, Making it look alive. I think you not only missed the point of his comment, you also missed the research portion."

I'm not really too interested to look it up myself. But, I mean, the fish has its organs and everything all splayed out. It wouldn't be spasming like that if it were still alive.
