Become a Seafood Anesthesiologist!

Dave Arnold has the deets. My favorite part:
At first you will see nothing. Then the lobsters will show some movement, maybe some tail flicks. Then the lobsters will stop moving and you’ll think they are knocked out. They aren’t. Instead, after a little rest they will start zombie-walking backwards. Pick them up and they will still zombie walk. If they reach the side of the tank they still zombie walk. After the zombie phase, they go slack again. It’s boiling time.
Much, much more at the link. I've never boiled or steamed a lobster before... despite going to Maine quite often... so I might try this.

Oh, and Happy Birthday America! Don't forget to stop by Denny's for your free Grand Slam breakfast.
