I'm waiting for somebody to scream global warming....

....but seriously, there are so many species out there in the ocean that we just haven't discovered yet. With 70% of the earth being covered, it's unlikely we will ever crack half of them in this century. This lis just likely to be something new but natural and nothing more.

Oliva: You are the weakest link! Goodbye!

Stewie: Ahahaha. Oh God, that's funny. That's really funny. You write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' You know I've never heard anyone make that joke before. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference that outside program before. Because that's what she says on the show, right? Hmmm? 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' And ye...ye..yet you've taken it and....and used it out of context to insult me in this everyday situation. What a clever, smart girl you must be. To come up with a joke like that all by yourself. Mmmmm...that's so fresh too. Any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. Mmmm? Cuz i'm here God you're so funny!

Now I know why God intended for me to see a shitty movie like "Evolution". It's so I can say:

Gee, that really looks like on of the creatures from that movie, "Evolution".

It will be interesting to see if this truly is the "giant octopus" of lore and of cryptozoology-past. Previously, a strange globster washed up on the shore of St. Augustine, Flordia around the turn of the last century and was never definitively proven to be a *giant* octopus (while there already is a "giant octopus," it doesn't grow as large as some have claimed the animals, or another species, can get). So this may be quite a find. It's not all that odd that it washed up on shore: personally I think that is the only way something like sea serpents or the Loch Ness monster will ever shown to be real. It is the same method which eventually proved the existence of the giant squid in the 1800s.

One major potential safety deficiency has been repeatedly shouted by critics of the DeLorean. Because it has gull-wing doors, which open up instead of out, they've claimed, you'd be trapped in the car if it should roll over. But as in most cars, the glass in the DeLorean is designed to be kicked out in a emergency.

Um... the Navy thought it was whale blubber. I can't tell from the pics, but it doesn't look like it has any sort of form.

It was found near a dead whale.

Couldn't it just be whale blubber? I mean, *I've* never seen whale blubber before. It might astound me...

I'd like to see what actual scientists think about this. What? No one is interested? Oh. It's probaby just blubber then.

It's not like scientists just scoff at the chance to discover and identify new creatures, no matter what the conspiracy folk would like you to believe.

I'll be swayed once someone who isn't a cryptozoologist (or a cryptozoology apologist) shows some interest and invesitgates this.

Aparrently, it might be a Octopus Giganteus like one that was allegedly discovered in the Gul of Mexico in 1896.

Once the DNA tests comes back, we'll see.

Naturally, because comments and attitudes like the latter are no reason whatsoever to believe that "scientists" typically scoff at those who wish to discover new, large, and interesting creatures, or even the idea of doing such.

I believe the famous line describing the progression of officialdom's attitudes on scientific discoveries goes something like this: "This is garbage and superstition...This is rubbish but at least worth looking at to prove it is rubbish...This is interesting but is still false...WE KNEW ALL ALONG."

Whether or not Gennaro, Mackal and others will be redeemed here on Octopus Giganteus and get to hear "We knew all along" remains to be seen.

Yeah. The word "scientists" needed the quotes here.

Bigfoot is real.

UFOs exist.

Rock on, man.

//edit: Ok, I'll back down a little here. I didn't re-read THIS particular link to the article. I've seen four or five "oddly enough" or "news of the weird" stories and posted based on that memory.

Still, I'll wait until they say what they think it is before I'm going to speculate that it's something. If ANYONE is trying to say we've been right all along, it's not the group that is refusing to guess what it is before all of the facts come in.

HINT: It's not the scientist who is waiting to get all of the facts that is guessing. He's using the scientific method - not jumping at anything that advances his agenda and presenting it as the truth.

In his house at Ryleh, dead Cthulu lays dreaming...

That is not dead which may eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die.

It's not, apparently, whale blubber. The texture, colour and consistency of it are totally wrong, according to the guys who've been picking it over. Also, the whale carcass nearby wasn't missing the massive amounts of body fat needed to make up that freaking huge pile. I say it's just part of a really big squid. And seeing as we already have smaller squids, I don't see why that'd be hard to believe, ya know?

In that link near the bottom of the animal it does look to possess some sort of tendril/arm resembling an Octopus's arms.
