Baby squid. Twelve hours old. Lookitem go!

It’s from SciAm‘s best gifs of the week. Mesmerizing.

It’s a three-day weekend here. Is it there? I get so confused. We’ve got lots of things planned, so I’m off. Have a good one!

Just Baby Squid? Whew!

I thought they were Crabs.

I’ve never had baby squid.

I’ve had crabs though, and I didn’t like them.

Check out ProWalks on YouTube. A guy walks around archeological sites with a camera. There is no narration, just a title of what you are looking at. And they are long,too. It’s like being there. The Pompeii, Giza,& Forum ones are very good. Pompeii is huge. Also the palace on top of Capri is interesting. Wish I could drop a link but my phone won’t let me.

Ok, because of your earlier post, I went and found some Old Speckled Hen. Over here it comes in an oddly sized 14.4oz / 440ml can. The “nitro can” says “Fixed widget inside, which may rattle. Do not shake the can before opening.” How English! If the widget is fixed, how can it rattle?

The beer itself is nice and soft. Slightly bitter, slightly thick, but with a less sugary malt note than usual. So, not bad. Maybe it’s the nitro widget?

This would go great with some Clarinet Polka!

There’s a fixed midget inside Old Speckled Hen?

That’s what I read the first time through and my ‘censor’ said – that can’t be what you read, try again.

They don’t have a song like those damned baby sharks, do they?

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
