excellent!


talking about a piece of the tentacle that stuck to the hook from the bait.


Quote:
When we stuck our fingers out it (the tentacle) stuck on pretty firmly. It got stuck on the deck of the boat ... and didn't come off easily. It was still alive," Kubodera said, referring to the tentacle.

Rev Rice, it might eat you first!

Well, the good news is we won't ever run into one at diving depths.

Damn, 1000 metres... that is friggin cold and deep. (reminds me of a joke... never mind)

That's pretty cool that people have finally seen one alive. What's even cooler is that the squid was not only huge, but it was fast and aggressive. Now I'm just waiting for them to get pissed at global warming and attack our aircraft carriers and Carnival Cruise ships.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
