    The males also die shortly after mating it seems like....but they also aren't really very social creatures, so even if they did have a long life span it's debatable that they'd be able to pass knowledge along.

    They've apparently been shown to be able to learn from observation, so they could in theory learn from observing other older octopuses if they were more social.

    Sooooooo, m'lady and I are back together. Lots of planning this time though. Third time's a charm, I hope.

    I like Maddox better, personally, but this is pretty damn funny.

    As cool as it'd be to have one as a pet, I have ethical issues with keeping something more intelligent than most humans in captivity.
    Are you kidding? It'd be nice to be able to spend time with it, goodness knows I get tired of people at the speed of George Carlin.

    I don't really trust octopi since I saw firsthand a group of those coming out of camouflage in front of my nose. Quite literally '3'

    Also who the heck puts a burrito together like this?! (šAš) Freaking OCD cooks ruining everything...!

    That's pretty fast :o

    I guess if a human and an octopus could communicate I'd stop down for a seaside rendezvous every once in a while, ask how the deep is going etc.

    It could play every spot on the table at a pitch game, even.

    Got a warning saying my laptop fan isn't working properly. Computer kept turning off shortly after skipping that error screen before finally being able to log on and use it. Now using an external fan on it and a program to check fan speeds. Not a good idea for me to use this laptop for long periods of time. Really sucks.
    Hopefully I'll get a replacement fan tomorrow, and hopefully that'll solve the problem.
    The future is in the past! Onwards Aoshima!
