An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again - it’s not dolphins or chimps or crows we have to look to as our intellectual equals, it’s motherfuckin’ octopuses. They’re the tricky ones.

I love that the source video is titled “The terrible ability of the octopus!” which may be nothing more than an awkward transliteration but is still fantastic. I further love that after it’s worked the lid off, it just tosses the thing away and settles back inside the jar. Octopuses, man. Their whole body is just a weird floppy muscle.

Sometimes I think heraldry is kind of cool and a neat way to identify people and kingdoms and hey, sometimes you can see the whole history of a place reflected in their arms!
And then you see something like the arms of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies and you lose all faith in heraldry being legible or aesthetically appealing at all.
Like, look at that thing. The fuck is even going on here? A fuckload of invasions, that’s what. Look, the French have been, the Spanish have, for some reason the old medieval arms of Jerusalem are here, there’s some Medici jazz on that one size, and then a fuckton of chains and orders and shit.

That awkward moment when the Kingdom of Naples’ coat of arms was plainer that the Two Sicilies one. An Murat was king!

I guess he was just super excited to have a horse on his kingdom’s arms:

Well, technically that’s the arms of the *province* of Naples within the boundaries of the Two Sicilies, but evidently it was a special thing for the 19th century Neapolitans to see the black horse on everything again, even if it was sharing space with a French eagle.

And his full coat of arms include even two bare breasted mermaids


He’d definitely be the sort of king who’d appreciate having bare boobs on a coat of arms.
