Very interesting. But what about the breeding of the females from another poster, that they don't live long after. They could not compete with us on that point.

it could always be worse. Consider the poor blue ringed octopus. Due to an unfortunate translation error the octopian phrase: "leave me alone i am extremely deadly." gets understood by humans as the humanoid phrase: "puuuurty! i want to pet him and squeeze him and hug him and name him george!"

Octopusses.

Octopi, the supposed plural of octopus, is a favorite among fans of quirky words, but it has no etymological basis. The form was created by English speakers out of a mistaken belief that octopus is Latin and hence pluralized with an -i ending. But octopus comes from ancient Greek, where its plural is octopodes, and though it came to English via scientific Latin—one of the late varieties of Latin that kept the language alive long after it had died out as a first language

Now I'm not sure if I should feel bad for eating so much delicious Takoyaki..


Or perhaps consuming the 'alien' DNA is the secret to the Japanese peoples' longer than average lifespan?

Unless you speak Latin, I suppose.

A Roman General walks into a bar.
The bartender says "What'll you have?"
The General replies "I'd like a martinus."
The bartender says "Do you mean a martini?"
The General answers "If I wanted 2, I would have said so."

They are fascinating. Our oceans are full of weird though. What's left undiscovered could be even weirder.

I was once taken to the back room of a zoo aquarium, and there met their resident octopus. Looking into her eyes was like looking into a human's eyes, she was totally there and intelligently present. She then was given a closed clear container with food inside, which she opened without the least effort, just like a person opening a large screwed-on bottle top. They are wonderful creatures.
