cephalopods. they might need a drink too.

Although it is friday and you may be thinking longingly of the the gin and tonic you will have later, let us not forget our cephalopod friends who might also be in need of a beverage.

(though I think your average ceph might want some fish or something as a garnish instead of a paltry olive.)

Not surprisingly, the boy scouts are into weird sh*t.

If you live in the east bay in cali, perhaps this is something you might want to check out. From the pictures, the octopus looks very sharp and shiny, like it has a high probability of falling and possibly impaling babies and/or small dogs. So if you DO check it out, please wear a helmet.

one wouldn't expect fox news to report something "science-y"

but here is a story from earlier this year about an "antarctic octopus." The story also describes the new octopus as "psychedelic" but does not explain why. Perhaps they orignally found it holding tabs of lsd in its tentacles as it undulated to an underwater phish (HA!) concert.

alert reader Marc sent me a link to this picture. Original post here. I'm just really glad to put something good up after my crappy post from yesterday.

sweet cephalopod crop circle.

People. We all know a giant squid crawled out of the ocean, flew in its space ship to this field, and made a crop circle depiction of his friend, Mr. Nautilus. Am I right?
