Oh, come on, it's all fun and games. Until someone loses an eye.

And then it's just fun. :cyclops:

Hello
The Moog has hit the USA, Phil is probably breathing a sigh of relief, though I HAVEN'T HEARD FROM HIM!!!
Anyway, is there anything particulary squidly I should look out for/not eat/visit in the aquarium (Chicago)?

Moog!

Rusty (aka rrtanton) is an Illinois resident. He might be able to offer some pointers.

I don't remember much about the aquarium's exhibits, but I recall that the building was quite nice. Good Federal architecture.

Yours truly,

Clem

The Shed (sp?) Aquarium is Chicago's greatest site in my book! I haven't been in years, but when I was last there, they had a live GPO on display, as well as plaster reproductions of GPO and an Architeuthis!

I'm coming into this thread a bit late, so you may have already been and gone through Chicago...did you make it to the Shed?

Sister Moog,

I think you should go to the aquarium with that digital camera of yours and report back to us! You've got to get a few photos of the ceph bits, after all, most of us will never get the chance to go there.

(BTW, I know you are a bit new to this so GPO stands for Giant Pacific Octopus in case you were wondering).
