    Sperm whales and giant squids give me the willies.

    I've heard that the communication clicks of a sperm whale feel like a horse kicked you in the chest if you're in the way - I've been kicked by a horse, so I won't be anywhere near any sperm whales, thankyaverramuch.

    That's just the "hello!" - I don't want to even think about getting hit by the hunting sonar. That's the loudest sound produced by any animal on the planet, I'm pretty sure.

    Then, you've got the uber-squid with the friggin' Eye of Sauron skulking around in the depths... I think I'll stay in Denver.

    Not for very much longer, our efforts for feeding our large populations kick up the microbial growth of the oceans through lack of checks for the small fish that feed on smaller things, leading to a murkiness that is putting new evolutionary pressures on the large invertebrate brains.

    good luck in a few hundred years when we finally get one in captivity to live in a pressurized tank, and it starts pulling this shit with the food we give it.

    Meeting my end in the form of an aggressive squid wasn't how I was planning on going either. Tentacles *shudder*



    That's why I've never been to Japan.

    Yes, but just -THINK- what Sauron-brand calimari would taste like!

    What are they going to make the tank out of?

    It's a few hundred years, so to counteract the known psychic-active animals, it's alternating layers of transparent aluminum and liquid quasicrystal solutions.

    You could feed an entire Japanese village with one of those things - and you'd have to bring in a tanker truck full of sake.

    Psychic squids?

    I just don't want to see one go all hannibal lecter with an elephant or something, will all of those spurred hooks an such. It'd be like the cockroach from the first MIB movie.

    /that elephant just sneezed out what looked like rainbow snot, snatched a half dozen hyenas and snorted it right back up... what was in those beers?

    And I've finally figured it out. Why we've domesticated species around the globe, that is.

    We discovered the wolves in sheeps clothing per se, and our emotional feeling of seeing such atrocities of a soft bodied animal taking advantage of shortened perspectives rose us to the level of protector for these animals. in the process, we killed off as many mammoths and mastadons as we could, like clearcutting a forest to prevent fires, and with that we've forgotten our position, being the dumb big muscles of the animal world. As we've done this, the extra oxidation of the atmosphere hazed the depths forcing these creatures to attempt warfare head on, but since we've socially tooled up we're at a slight advantage. Yet, they're the trump card, and they are using ourselves against us, psychically connecting with prime puppets and initiating conversationally sound yet completely destructive ideas that will once again bring them to the top of the food list once we self-revoke our tool skills in the name of provocation. From there, they will destroy us in the way that provoked us initially, but in a more fearsome way, using their terrifying teenagers to parasitically take control of large canine-like polar bears, and herd us to feeding swarms where hundreds of adults emerge from the surf to slaughter thousands of human prey, and we will never know how it happened.

    But, Barbie, you're already a C cup. I don't care what Ken says, I think these implants are just TOO big.

    wow, maybe I shouldn't have been talking about parasitic squids, an implant post somehow drifted in here :o
