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:

AND maybe I could get octo lens transplants and dump my contacts :biggrin2: :biggrin2: :biggrin2:

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
