It isn't alive. The salt in the soy sauce is causing the dead muscles to contract. It is exactly the same with any other "live meal" you see.

Not sure if you're just ************ for lols to see who buys it or you are just wrong.

They are still alive. They cut the outer bit of their head off as that isnt nice/edible. But its still alive, just take off the "Scalp and skull" type bit of the squid .

Its dying, granted. But its still alive.


There is another live meal. Its happily sitting in the bowl of water moving about alive before its eaten.

They are alive.

Salt isn't the only thing that can make things wriggle. Electric messages are sent from the brain and are received by the muscles after something is dead. Ever heard of "running around like a headless chicken" ? It is the same thing; The chicken has its head chopped off but the final messages from the brain are still being received. I've seen it myself in person when a friend had to kill his chicken because of an infection. He cut the head clean off and the body kept flapping and wriggling, but the chicken is dead.
The reason the salt comes into the equation in the first gif is all of the messages from the brain have all died out, but salt activates the muscles again. You can create a battery out of some metal washers, water and salt. It will create electrical currents and that is the same thing as what is happening when the salt hits the muscles.

tl;dr salt isn't necessary if its freshly killed.

Not the same thing--what we're seeing in this gif is more similar to this video here:


I'll trust you don't think that those frogs are still alive.

When it's on the plate it's dead, same with Original Post. But yeah, the first one is clearly still alive as it's also unprepared.
