OK, I did not make this up, this is a quote from the blog mentioned in the post:

Of course, the magic moment can occur in a less violent fashion, with the whole ritual taking a more calm attitude. This occurs more readily when you play Neil Diamond to the octopuses while they are mating. The biological basis of this so-called “Neil-facilitated mating behavior” is still under investigation, though we owe its recent documentation to rman751 :

I was wondering if he was a member but was enjoying reading some of his links too much to put the two together :oops: (and the discussion on how to tell a male with a missing third right arm). Great references on the history of Giant Squid discoveries as well others I am still reading through
