I prefer my food not moving and very dead.

Any sufficiently fresh muscled organism will move when you add salt (like with soy sauce or sushi tamari). The ions in the solute will stimulate the nerves, resulting in muscle movement.

That doesn't mean it ain't dead yet.

Also, that looks delicious.

It was only moving because somebody added salt.

A dead guy will move if you kick his arm. That doesn't mean you can't eat him.

Home delivery sushi is the best invention ever. (And yes, this post made me order some and shove it down my gullet.)

If you guys think that's weird, check out the dancing squid: Dancing squid bowl dish in Hakodate - YouTube

Like Spheric Harlot said, it's just the salt triggering a biochemical response. It's very dead. Apply a current to a dead person, and those limbs would certainly flail!

How do you forget that you're allergic to shrimp?

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

So if I kill someone and then pour salt on them, they'll move around? Awesome!

Aww, that sounds pretty good about now, especially with a nice cold beer. Sapporo anyone?!

That doesn't sound too bad. After eating eggs for over a year for weightlifting purposes, I'd scarf down a boiled bird fetus in a jiffy.

Looks delicious. I've also eaten live prawns: they were brought to us in a jar of ice and we were supposed to wait until they stop moving … mostly. Needless to say, I've never eaten seafood that fresh.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.
