Why does that remind me of that sculpture at the back of Pacino's desk in The Devil's Advocate'... which in turn was based on plagiarized from Frederick Hart's Ex Nihilo:

You mean there aren't? To begin with, what about the Jesus' hair, that looks just like a equine skull sideways?

One click from there and I was on a page about unicorn mating. Complete with plinky-plonky Love Story muzak. Perhaps as un-Gibsonian as it is possible to get.


Yes, I heard MrsK go to that site. She read out some of it. The creator seems to think male and female Unicorns are Stags and Does. I mean, really.

Frank Zok, professor and associate chair of the department of materials, said he had always been skeptical of whether there is any real advantage to materials that change their properties gradually from one part to another, "but the squid beak turned me into a believer."
Is this one of those cases where something has always been profuse in the world and I never took note, or one in which something has recently become so very popular?

What I mean is, have there always been so many squid-related items floating about or have I merely noticed them because of squidphillia on this thread?

You know what ikizukuri is? Google it.


Okay, well that's my stomach turned for the evening.

I mean, we're all animals and on a daily basis animals are eating each other alive (and have been doing so for millions of years).

But can't we do a little better than this? I mean, seriously, we're monkeys who accidently grew big brains but I thought we were trying to advance or something.

Colour me depressed. (and I'm a stone hearted bastard who eats his kitten with a rusty spoon - AFTER breaking it's neck).
"...The tentacles of Dosidicus gigas are lined with more than 1,000 suction cups, each circled with dozens of sharp teeth, to drag food to the squid's razor-sharp beak...

...Underwater videographer Scott Cassell, who has scuba-dived with Humboldt squid hundreds of times, has been dragged down 10 metres by one of the squids, and had his right arm dislocated when one pulled on his camera.

BAM! I get slammed by a six-foot squid on my chest under my arm and feel another envelop my wrist and begin to bite me," Cassell wrote in a post on the scuba website Deeper Blue. "As I begin to fight them off my chest and arm, another one grabs my fin..."

Holy freckled buttocks!

As much as I hate to imply I hoped something from the movie Independence Day would actually happen, I kinda hoped it'd be like the alien autopsy in Independence Day.

That I can handle. Using an Apple Powerbook to hack alien spaceships - I cannot.
