Have you seen those first-ever pix of a giant squid in the wild? Me neither! There's that one picture everybody's got, but I wanna see the prey "enveloped in a coiled tentacular ball." The Royal Society is holding out. I was able to get the DNA sequence off the tentacle they snagged, but after I forwarded it to the Cloning Department I felt sort of empty.

I just can't get over how jealous I am of this guy, showing up on fire. I once read a book in which a race car driver, after a series of mishaps, shows up at a formal party in a dripping-wet tuxedo. I've always wanted to do that. This guy's aiming several notches higher.
I love the funny stance for the handshake. "Oh, do excuse me, I seem to be aflame."
