I was shot when I was in the service and serving in the Vet Nam conflict.
It hurts to be shot, let me tell you......

between working on cars and being a volunteer firefighter, I've had some nice burns, and let me tell you, there is nothing about a burn that you don't feel.

Well, the main reason lobsters are kept alive until the moment of cooking is a food safety issue. Once dead, nasty bacteria tend to build up exponentially faster than even with fish. It is possible to kill the lobster immediately before cooking, but most people don't, because it is rather difficult to find a way to kill the lobster without breaking the shell, which exposes the flesh to the open water, compromising the flavor of the meat.

Fish are much easier to preserve before cooking, and therefore do not necessitate cooking while still alive.

I'm betting there's no real way to test this, but if you put a fish into boiling water from relatively cold water, it isn't the same as getting local burns. Although not exactly a parallel, but if you fell into a pit of lava, I'm guessing death would be instant. It's hard making parallels between fish and humans...
