Humane way to boil lobster

The humane way to boil live lobster is to hypnotize them, this is done by rubbing the large piece of protruding shell that sticks out above and between the two eyes. Just rub your finger on the shell back and forth for about 10 seconds and they are hypnotized and feel nothing, I wrote this in the first cookbook I published and have always had wonderful safe humane results.
The second method is to place the live lobster in about 1-2 inches of cold water in a very large pot, cover them with a wet tea or light wet kitchen towel and slowly bring to a low boil, they fall asleep in the heat of the water temp rising, though I prefer the first method, but the slower and lower they are cooked results in the most tender of meat.
Good luck!
