My latest GeekPlanet article is up now, which concerns itself with the adventures of a plucky little octopus named Paul.
On a related subject, I learned from BigHead today that professional Jew-baiting nutcase Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has pointed at Paul as a example of everything that is wrong with Western civilisation. This may be because octopuses look a little bit like a balloon attached to eight ties (which he also hates), but I think something more subtle is going on here. I think he's trying to defame Paul, eroding his authority before the Americans have the chance to indulge in some "extraordinary rendition" and claim Paul for themselves.
After all, what better way for the US to decide which country to needlessly crush next than the say so of a clairvoyant octopus? As Bighead pointed out earlier, a system by which any given country has only a 50% chance of being invaded by bloodthirsty Americans could very easily be thought of as an improvement. I'd certainly take Paul over Mitt Romney any day of the week.
