    Interesting item on Crustacean pain awareness and their behavior:
    http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/europe/03/27/crabs.memorypain/index.html

    Perhaps something to bring up on the next show — those live lobsters might actually feel magnitude of pain we humans associate with boiling water and especially steam.

    Just too bad it takes shocking crustaceans to prove it (certainly not pleasant for humans either!)
