Still you can understand why this would be disturbing, and I don't care if it's delicious, I've never been comfortable with the idea of boiling anything alive.
This seems oddly off-topic. Unless you account for the fact that sci-fi loves to spin up freaky delicacies.
You might be right, I'm not an expert on exactly how lobsters scream... Still, when in doubt about who or what experiences pain I always like to encourage humanity to err on the side of, er, humanity.
As for off topic, I'm the queen of off topic and random gatorliness!
