In other rather exciting news (at least if you're a nature-nerd, like me), some Japanese researchers caught and filmed a live giant squid off the Ogasawara Islands, south of Tokyo. There's a video of it at CNN.com. This new one seems to be a little big bigger than this one caught near San Diego in 2005.
So it's not quite as impressive as it would have been had they found a 60 foot squid attached to their line. But it's still way more exciting than anything my brother and I ever caught.
Finally, I thought I'd post a video demonstrating the proper technique for freeing a buddy from the tentacles of a giant mechanical squid.
Always remember, use your arm blasters and go for the eyes!
