    Re: 140-year-old lobster's tale has a happy ending

    It is pretty sad that we can get an argument over a lobster. I stand by what I said over three lbs tastes horrible. TO ME

    Thats probably because you have never had someone cook a large lobster properly for you.....I'll cook a ten pounder for you, and you will love it......
    There are some things to know and it's tricky, but large lobsters can be very tender and just as good, if not better, than small ones.


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    20-pounder dubbed 'George' released into wild after restaurant spares him



    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28589278/?GT1=43001
    My wife works for a large seafood dist.
    I had worked there in the past for 5 yrs.
    A while back a well-known restaurant in Boston decided to do the same thing, and even had it documented for brownie points.

    Well, the stupid @sses forgot to take the floopin' bands off before releasing it into Boston hahbah.
    That poor freakn' lobstah wouldn't have lasted long without being able to feed his own face.

    BTW, they only put the bands on their claws to keep them from eating each other in the tanks...seriously.
    As a Biology Major I can tell you that they don't eat with the large claws, they eat with the smaller 2nd row pinchers. The big ones are used as much for defense as anything as they are really scavengers more than predators. Not that any of this matters in the big scheme of things but that lobster can certainly get by until it molts and regenerates a new set of claws as it sheds the old ones along with the rubber bands.
    Okay, from most of your posts and the fact that you are a Vikes fan I kind of like your jiggly butt.
    BUT, as a Biology Major, well that's a different story.
    You are right when you say lobstahs are scavengers.
    And yes, they would be able to feed their face with their little pinchers with whatever minute scraps they could conjure up off of the ocean floor.

    HOWEVER, with both claws banded, they would NEVER survive nearly long enough for their sharp ripping claw or the larger crushing claw to re-generate.
    They DEPEND on these claws for survival.
    They would be eaten in no time, even by their own family members.


    This comes from lobstah experts who have been working in the New England Lobstah industry their entire lives.

    I spent 6 months working in one of the largest lobstah pools in Massachusetts.
    I have many a time opened a lobstah crate to find one has had the bands slip off of even one claw, and have found at least one if not more lobstah "pieces parts" and even half-eaten ones.

    It is beginning to become apparent that a few on this site are nit-picking dimply buttocks who have way too much time on their hands.
    Well that was an uncalled for response.

    I personally don't give a crap about weather or not the lobster could survive in the wild with its claws banded.
    But for the record, you changed your assertion as to why it wouldn't make it after UffDa called you on it.

    Vikeman: That poor freakn' lobstah wouldn't have lasted long without being able to feed his own face.
    UffDa: ...they don't eat with the large claws, they eat with the smaller 2nd row pinchers
    Vikeman: ...with both claws banded, they would NEVER survive nearly long enough...
    They DEPEND on these claws for survival.

    You are probably right, it wouldn't survive.
    But is it really getting worked up over?
    BTW, I thought lobsters could shed their claws, and this was one of the issues fishermen had to contend with when banding them because ti reduced the market value.
    Can anyone verify?
    He also took the time to elaborate that as a biology major, he was certain the lobstah would survive until the claws regenerated.
    Not released into the wild, they can't.
    That was the crux of my point! They CAN shed their claws, but they don't grow back overnight.

    That is why they introduce "Culls" (lobstahs with one or no claws) into market.
    I was just calling HIM on that!
    I guess people can't maintain their own debates.
    Or is the discriminatory practice of only certain people calling certain people out on things allowed???
    BTW, I don't give a crap what you think because I wasn't talking to you.

    No we are cool with bebates but when you start acting like a j~~~~~~s someone will speak up

    Good for you man you know alot about lobsters.. We are very proud of you.. No need to be a prick about it
    [/quote]

    Not intending to be a prick.
    It just seems there are thre or four posters on here who like to prick apart peoples posts...dissect every freakn' word.

    I see no need to do that to folks.
    Just from being a member here for a short time I can tell a lot of folks out there are on the pssssive side.
    I respect it, but I see no need to censor the word @ss.
    Is a name for an animal.
    Kids use much worse than that.

    Where I come from we are brash about getting points across and we let each other debate on our own...we MYOB!
    [/quote]


    Understandable .. I don't like the dissecting of posts either

    But in this case he just simply stated that the lobster wouldn't need those claws to survive.. Nothing wrong with that.. He was just letting you know

    Then you took it a little far.. I mean you didn't call him any serious name.. But any name calling was not warranted.. So that's gonna bug people
