Let me tell you, frostbite hurt, but the pain from being burnt was WAY worse.

Keeping ANY living thing under your care has moral implications, IMO. Killing for sport WITHOUT a noble purpose (ie. eating it) is wrong no matter what it is, fish, deer, dog, doesnt matter. I'm not against people eating any type of animal.. The food chain goes on. But tossing an aquarium fish into a searing hot frying pan knowing you aren't going to eat it? bull honkey. 100%.
+1 well said POS.

I have eaten a fish out of a tank before, tasted pretty good. My friend had a pacu that was too big for his tank, had to be close to 30lbs. He took it out cleaned it and threw it on the grill. No lfs would take it and why waste food? I dont agree on just taking a fish from a tank and eating it just because you want to be cool. Order a freaking pizza. I myself boycott anything that has to do with Mtv. After they stopped playing music, bevis and butthead and now the Jersey Shore.

Not to be a troll but along sickening topics of fish munching:
NOTICE: This video is pretty messed up. I wouldn't watch it if you have a weak stomach.

Eating A Deep Fried Fish That's Still Alive (VIDEO)


My bad on the language.

Burning hurts more than freezing. I can write you a scientific paper on this, this is what I study.

Where is the line drawn? Aren't everyone under the "moral implication" of keeping the Earth, along with everything that's a part of it, alive? People care for fishes in the tank probably aren't laughing their butts off about the oil spill - if they care for the living things in their little glass tank, it would be illogical for them not to care for the living things in mankind's big ball known as Earth - so why is it okay for hundreds of thousands of fisherman to kill billions of fish from the ocean (some of which can be put in aquariums), but not for one man to kill one fish out of a tank? I'm not saying pulling a fish out of your tank is moral, but if you're saying that's not justifiable, then neither is fishing (or killing any animal).

however, those fish caught in massive quantities by commercial fisherman are used to provide sustenance for people. if you were to go this far and say fishing for food is immoral, than you would have to say that a lion killing a zebra for food is wrong, or a small fish being eaten by a bigger fish is wrong. like said before somewhere in the thread, it is all part of the food chain. the only difference with us humans and commercial fishing is that the fish does not get immediately consumed, but rather collected and taken somewhere to be processed or distributed. so not only do these masses of fish caught feed people, but also provide a living for all involved in their capture, processing, and distribution. i would not call this immoral but a way of life. however, the guy on MTV taking a PET fish out of a tank and throwing it in a frying pan for his own pleasure or amusement, or those watching, is absolutely morally wrong. IMO of course

As stated earlier, it was a preview for the next show. Maybe he will eat it then.

I've edited 3 posts in this thread so far for foul language. The discussion is fine, but please refrain from using bad words in your arguments.
