    Wow! Maybe I should be a marine biologist instead of a physicist.

    I was talking to my brother today, and he said to me:
    "Did you hear that they almost caught this 20m octupus that's been sinking ships in japan? A fisherman got its tentacle, but it got away."

    Oh, ow, the poor thing left a tentacle behind. :frown: Thanks for sharing the story! That's pretty cool that they finally saw one live and it behaves quite differently from what was expected.
