Sounds Like A Fish Story To Me

So I heard the other day that once again someone was trotting out the theory that goldfish are incapable of feeling pain, and putting that theory to the test.  

While it seems unlikely to me that any organism would survive long without such an important tool as the ability to feel pain (and, as I recall, there are some case studies to back up my assessment), I’ll grant that the very nature of science sometimes is to take an odd sounding question and put it to the test.

With that in mind . . . personally, I’m more curious if the people who think that goldfish are incapable of feeling pain are capable of feeling pain themselves.  I’ll be putting this to the test as soon as I round up enough test subjects, volunteers can contact me via this site.
