Yikes! that sucks!

When i was little, probably about 5 years old, we had a betta in a bowl (i know, i know :S) and I took it upon myself to feed it, so I picked the bowl up to move it lower and ended up dropping it. My mom had the neighbor come and get the fish off the floor, and let the neighbor have it.

To me people who say they are just fish are less human. I love fish so much I refuse to eat sea food.

That's different it falls under food chain there is a difference between live feeding and torture live food is important you did nothing wrong now torturing would be removing its legs just to watch it suffer one of the the king henriesithink the 8th would throw cats off castle walls for fun.

I can't eat crab because I have Fiddler Crabs as pets and used to have Hermit crabs as well. It would be like I was eating my pet. However I do eat fish but rarely. It makes me feel a bit guilty that I do.

I avoid any sea creature not just because I love fish, but because they taste disgusting!

*Clears throat*

Alright class, welcome to Home Ec 101. It is time to learn the differences between Sushi, Shashimi, and Nigiri.

Sushi means rice and seaweed. If you have a dish where the main ingredients are rice and seaweed, then you are eating sushi. I've had egg sushi while in Japan and a lot of places that sell sushi in the US have vegetarian rolls. Also, unless the menu says otherwise, any fish in sushi is steamed cook and not raw.

Shashimi means raw fish. That's when you will get slices of raw fish either on a bed of flavored rice or placed on a decorative plate in a pretty way. In this case the fish is actually raw so i would only get sashimi from a place I really, really trusted.

Nigiri is fish on rice. The slice of fish will be placed on a finger-sized arc of rice and is eaten with your fingers. Techniquely, this is the only one of the three rolls that is eaten with hands. Also, unless the menu says other wise, the fish will be raw and not steamed.

*Class bell rings*

Don't forget your homework on the differences between mixing and folding.
