    Ah shit. And here I was thinking I'd be the first kid on my block to post the thread. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm always fascinated by stuff like this.

    Amazing stuff - but why the delay in announcing ? This was done in 2004, and I still haven't seen the full video posted or shown anywhere. Doesn't make sense that a development of this magnitude was essentially "quashed"... my conspiracy senses are in overdrive...

    I also read that. This is a huge discovery of one of the most elusive creatures in the world.

    I also wonder about the 2004 date though.

    They finished their research, they wrote a paper, they waited for it to get reviewed, it got published. They followed the "normal" route for publishing research instead of just announcing it.

    Hmmm... seems to miss the hysteria we consistenly associate with big news. Not sure I like these kind of "normal" folk. [​IMG]

    Hopefully the video will be available soon !

    That's just plain cool. I think after seeing "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" it made me a little terrified of giant squids.

    Awesome! I guess the Japanese scientists were really hungry - too bad they didn't catch it - it would have fed the entire crew!

    I was thinking the same thing until I heard that giant/colossal squid meat is supposedly high in ammonia that it would be like eating Solid Windex.

    What ever happened to the good old days when giant squids came to the surface & dragged sailing ships down?

    Oh wait... maybe those were Giant Octopus... uhhh Octopi... uhhh Octopussies.
