    But just think of the potential from this discovery alone.. Soon :oshea: may replace his coke bottles with flat "octo eye" glasses, and see with the same clarity as his specimens do :cyclops:

    True...but, as a 13 year-old, I have an excuse to-figuratively-say "yeah, yeah, but a ROBOTIC OCTO!!!" :lol: I love bein a 13 year old. :P Then again, even this is an extremely impressive advancement.

    Well CK I'm not 13 and haven't been for 2 or 3 years :heee: :roll: But I think a robotic octo would be cool too!

    The red octi on my office window ledge is battery operated and can creep across the floor (sort of :D )


    AND maybe I could get octo lens transplants and dump my contacts :D :D :D

    "Hello, my name is Jean, and you will be following me behind the scenes at the aquarium...notice that the walls are dripping, and you may hear the occasional moan from one of the prisoners...Lights? No, there are no lights, but the glow from my eyes should give you enough to see the descending stairs by..."

    CTHULHU! I didn't know you'd been on one of my tours! Why didn't you introduce yourself?? I'd've found the nicest set of rusty manacles just for you and heated up the red hot poker with my own fair tentacle.......er hand
