  • Can you imagine an octopus trying to understand a human? Octopus scientist observing a human: Hmmm, only 4 arms and they aren't even the same size, how strange. They have no suckers so how can it grab and hold its prey? Instead of a proper beak it has many tiny beaks lining its mouth. This is an extremely inefficient system for tearing apart prey so it must have some other way to kill and dismember its food but without arms this seems unlikely. This is a question that needs further study. Added to that it has many other oddities that are hard to understand. It lives on land so it can't swim, how does it manage to get around? It is always the same color and shape, why haven't they gone extinct without any way to camouflage themselves from predators? Although it is possible to sometimes see a lone one, they almost always seem to appear in groups, sometimes very large groups. Perhaps this is a survival strategy since they are unable to hide themselves. The same behavior is seen in schools of fish, does that mean it is an instinctual ability like fish or a learned technique? Can we then make the assumption that they are at least as intelligent as fish?

  • "Real science".. there would be some real science on this channel if you'd stick to the actual facts (biology, physiology, behaviour of the study) and drop the philosophical evolutionary mith. Can't believe that people still buy this nonsense in this day 'n age. ..I guess it's not there fault since its being fed to them systematically from an early age through any means possible. I don't judge people for classifying certain systems of organisms as "simple" back in the 19th century when most people didn't even know what soap was. But now, stating that an organism or even a single cell is simple, is pure ignorance.

  • Forget the "we" as of any evolutive use... just to the contrary, its task is synchronization and the production of reproductive adult states as final causes... all too often the adaptive capacities (incl. its possibly strange loops and dying out at some point) of a species are mixed up with evolution...

  • Octopuses do not have any bones with the exception of their beaks. so if you are responsible and depraved enough to be literally the life support of your 8 limbed friend, you can debeak it like how you'd declaw a cat and then push your member into it's feed chute. You can then let it subsist on your baby batter. The Octopus is smart. Very smart. It will learn that without it's beak, it cannot feed on anything else but your human seed that has to be milked from you. Every morning, you will feel your clothes slide off and a damp weight on your lower half. The sensation creeps up your body until most of the jiggly mass has enveloped the entire length. It will start pumping as fast as it can for it is hungry. The animal gyrates its empty stomach and the folds of its brain rubbing on your glans, begging for nutrition. You climax and give the marine creature's breakfast. The pumping slows down but doesn't stop to milk out the last few drops of its meal. Looking into its yellow animal eyes, it looks back with a thousand-yard stare. This will be routine for all of its meals for the rest of it's 3-5 years on this god forsaken planet.

  • Hey more important than any news is THE GOOD NEWS. Jesus Christ was God manifest in the flesh and died on the cross for all our sins, was buried and rose again on the third day according to the scriptures. He did that because he loves us and he does not want us to go to hell. Jesus said in John 3:15-16 "that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Rejoice friend! Salvation is a free gift from God :) Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Friend, you can KNOW that you have eternal life RIGHT NOW simply by trusting in Jesus Christ alone 1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved :)
