In Japan, Squid are forced to dance for you before you eat it

ok after a quick lookup. Sodium combined with animals that absorb things through their skin, makes their muscles contract. The Animal is dead, it is dancing because the soy sauce they are pouring on it has salt which causes the muscles to contract through magical biology things.

It's not dead. It has been decapitated, but a squid's brain is located directly behind its eyes rather than in the "head" per se. Also, note how coordinated its movements are. It clearly grips the sides of the bowl and then tries to crawl away. The rear tentacles started reacting before the soy sauce even touched them, besides, so I don't think that explanation flies at all.

are we watching the same video. O_o Nothing moves until it is touched by soy sauce=. The movement don't seem coordinated at all. Its just random movement, and when the body falls over the a few of the tenticles move off of the bowl. The squid didn't react at all to being pushed back into the bowl. It also slowed moving way too quickly after getting soy sauce poured on it



How could they eat that and not vomit is beyond me.

Clearly the squid is reacting to the soy sauce. What I meant is that when the person first pours the soy sauce over the front of the squid, the back tentacles start moving even though they don't appear to have come into contact with the sauce at all. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on what "random" movements look like, and I'm not really sure what sort of reaction you expect it to have from being pushed around a little bit or why you'd expect a half dead squid to have boundless energy.

Here's a better clip. There's no doubt that one was still alive.

Damn. That is seriously fucked up. I'm not a hippie or a vegan or anything, but that seems unnecessarily cruel.

I don't expect it to have boundless energy. THe squid wasn't moving at all in the beggining. If it is indeed alive and flipped out from the soy sauce I expect a push that isn't exactly gentle, he moved the squid with it, to cause some type of reaction from the squid, like say even attempt to grab the hand. Also yes I expect a living squid, even half dead to either not be able to move quickly at all or to move around for more than 10 seconds quickly if the soy sauce is indeed just bothering it and not causing the actual movement. Maybe it is alive, but I don't think its movements indicate that if salt does cause dead animals to move around randomly because the movement is just random.

The squid in the other video does seem alive though as it actually looked like it just flipped out when the sauce was poured on it. 



Disgusting and sick, id love this kind of shit done to humans to see how they like it.

* The humans that do this sick shit to animals



 

Poor thing, he's kinda cute too :(



Everyone saying that's cruel and then going out and having a nice burger, a piece of bacon, or chicken fajita is a fucking hypocrite. Try to educate yourself on how "food" animals are raised and slaughtered in the western world.
