Colossal Squid!

New Zeland Fishermen have caught an intact colossal squid estimated at 33 feet long and about 990 lbs!!! It's currently frozen in the hull of their ship, being transported to New Zeland for scientific examination.

Table of Malcontents

Table of Malcontents does exactly what I wanted to do with this blog and with The Shiny List, professionally, and every day. I have yet to find a better pack of meat-filters for the internet, and they seem to nail every one of my bizarre fringe interests, from cephalopods to steampunk. So if I haven't updated in weeks, go visit them for something intersting.
