Just Because It’s Cool: A Big Bowl of Calamari?
“With its untold depths, couldn’t the sea keep alive such huge specimens of life from another age, this sea that never changes while the land masses undergo almost continuous alteration? Couldn’t the heart of the ocean hide the last–remaining varieties of these titanic species, for whom years are centuries and centuries millennia?”
— Jules Verne, 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA
So okay, some things are just enough out of the way to be fun. Monsters, for instance, in this case real monsters*, so herewith via THE UPWORTHY, by James Gaines (from which the quote just above comes as well), “When a Giant Squid Appeared in the Harbor, this Man Grabbed a Camera and Jumped In.” The view isn’t long, less than a minute, but it is included with other squid fun facts and it is close up. And so, to see for oneself, press here.
