Giant squid, not Britney Spears

December 22, 2006

Hi Brit,

Just for a change of pace, here’s an interesting news item: Giant squid caught on video by Japanese scientists

This thing is 11 feet 6 inches long (3.5 meters) and weighs 110 pounds (50 kg.)  I’m still contemplating whether this is a sign of the end of the world, as it well could be.  However, I am sure that it is Nature’s way of playing a little joke.  Consider, if you will, the fondness the Japanese have for eating calamari, which is squid or octopus.  Now, there are squid that, potentially, could eat the Japanese.
