    :mad: haha, this pic's cool.
    hi... i was bored at work so i was reading the news and then i read the article on the first pictures taken of a giant squid in the wild. for quite a number of years i've always had dreams (nightmares maybe?) of being in the deep among giant squids. i'm not really sure why (i don't even know how to swim), but they really interest me. i'm from korea anyway and they eat a lot of squid and octopus here (even alive)... sorry :oops: so i started searching google about squids and, maybe i'm dumb, but i was pretty amazed to see a website dedicated to this. i think it's really cool. wait... squids are cepholopods, right?

    anyway, i'm blabbing way too much
    hi, i'm Roy

    Greetings Roy.

    Squid are indeed cephalopods, as are octopus, cuttlefish, nautilus, argonauts, and the extinct ammonites and belemnites. A most fascinating, and surprisingly diverse, group of animals. Many of us had nightmares about being eaten by giant squid when we were kids, I blame a certain Disney film starring James Mason!

    Have fun here, and welcome again!

    Squid and otopus dreams are probably the norm with most folks here.

    Hi Roy, and welcome! I never knew that people would eat live octos until I saw that Korean film "Old Boy?". It made me cry...

    A well-intentioned friend (I hope) sent me through a short .wmv video this morning that follows a 'family' of live octopus from the fish market to the plate (a few minutes later)... very disturbing watching the consumers poke the chopsticks inside the mantle and wind the wiggling arms around and around... especially since it's narrated in an "Oh no, where's Sally Octopus going now? 'Ouch, you're hurting me!' says Sally... and she's gone!" type of way. Mingled horror, repulsion, and distress...

    :angelpus:

    Sorry, :welcome: also to Roy...
