If you like eating lobster but have never cooked one yourself, here’s a brief word of advice: don’t.
Before you’ve plunged one into boiling water
with your own two hands, it’s easy to imagine lobsters as big-clawed
bugs who feel nothing as they’re cooked alive. And listen—it’s possible
that’s true. Science hasn’t come down definitively on one side or the
other. But once you’ve heard them banging on the inside of the pot
trying to claw their way out, you won’t ever be able to not hear it as you eat a lobster.
