410 HoneyMoney5 Do they eat much lobster in Switzerland?

823 hamletswords I had a discussion with someone once who actually dissected and studied lobsters for a living, after I had read "Consider the Lobster" by David Foster Wallace (great story btw, and great book if you haven't read it). He said that Lobsters do not have the ability to feel pain in a way we would understand. The screeching that is heard is not them crying, but water evaporating. It sounds plausible, and he seemed to know what he was talking about, but I still find it hard to believe any animal would be unable to feel pain. How could they survive as a species without the ability to feel pain, which is what makes you instantly avoid dangerous situations?
