I'm also interested in Odd Stories.

And I think I will share a few with you today. (If you are under 18 stop here.....that means you Lissette...if you read the whole post, I'm pretty sure I will hear from your Mom!) As you all know I like to peruse the Yahoo! News section many time a day. I found one story a little odd, and after I read it a link to another story had me laughing. And the comments...the comments...well read them for yourself! Boiling Mad: Crabs Feel Pain Do Animal's Enjoy Sex? (take a look at the links at the end of THIS story....all I can say to them is , "Huh?") I read both of them and laughed. Now, I'm not poking fun at anyone that is a vegetarian for moral reasons (promise) I just think it is weird that the pain of crabs (not THOSE kind of crabs) warrants a study. I also think I didn't really need to know if Animal's like sex or not....I've never wondered. Who thinks about this stuff and thinks they need money to study that kind of stuff? Give me your opinions....I'd love to hear them! music post this week....but if you are dying for something new, I've heard the Blue October CD is pretty good!

I caught the headline of the crab story, but didn't read it until you posted it. Why wouldn't they fill pain? If they don't like it, evolve.

As for animals and sex, I would think they would enjoy it, in whatever sense that means for animals, otherwise why do it? It's not like they have the capacity to think, "Oh, we should do this boring thing so we can continue our species."

See, I got all that and I didn't need to spend money on a study to find out. Seems like common sense to me.

I would think that crabs feel the pain. Why not start them off on a slow heat and maybe they won't notice it getting hotter. Are they going to change all the laws, because I'm sure that cows and pigs feel pain when they are killed for food?

I would also think that animals enjoy sex other wise they would not be here. At least that was my first thought upon reading the title.

Pretty much don't think they need to spend money to study this, and I'm pretty sure I'll still eat crab, shrimp and lobster.

Thanks for the "under 18" disclaimer! You're awesome to think of her when blogging. Two interesting stories... what will they come up with next to peak our interest?
