A couple more little known facts about octopuses:
-Their suction cups can pull painful memories and emotions from the human mind.
-They can smell like whatever they want to smell like.
-Their eyes can see all your dirty thoughts as Obi Wan Kenobi-style holograms.
-They can all read (but not write) Sanskrit.
-The natural rhythm of their hearts is a huge funky hip-hop beat.

ok. well i've been eating them, 3-4 times a year. cooked of course, and i guess i'm still alive (pinched myself to see if i felt pain, yep still alive)..
maybe what i've been eating is NOT octopus!!! AAAHHHH! I didn't get a chance to listen to their heartbeat before cooking them, so darn! couldn't accurately make sure if they were octopus. but they did smell great tossed in oyster sauce.

maybe all oysters should be poisonous.
