jangbones HA I was walking my rugrat today and passed a bunch of middle schoolers getting ready to play soccer. Three of them were telling a fourth how terrible he was at soccer. If each of the three had knives and were just stabbing his face it would have been so much less brutal.
kingarthur I believe Peter Watts based the aliens in his book Blindsight off Humboldt squid. You'd have to ask him as he's the marine biologist and I'm not.
