:shock: That's quite a freaky pic though. I'm just wondering about that eye... is there not a species of squid that has one huge eys and one tiny eye? They both serve purpose of usage at different water depths... or something...
Graeme- Sounding a bit like a fool now!

Yeah, I think that's it, although I don't remember it being so stocky-looking.

From the fiction works of H P Lovecraft, although the blind, idiot god is not Cthulhu, but Azathoth.

Cthulhu is the chap with the octopod head and wings.

Yay, another "Cthulhu Cultist"!! Yeah, dude that's kinda what I thought. Azathoth is described as being blind and imbicelic, right? Just basically a huge nuclear mass. Basically Cthulhu looks like my Avatar, because it IS Cthulhu; my plush Cthulhu :biggrin2:

oh...*is enlighted* But in the article, did the author mix it up or did I mix up and thought he mixed up?

No, you're totally right. He got it all mixed up.

See!? Most kinds of trouble start of as fun!

Graeme- by the way, is it wrong to double-post here? I'm just wondering 'cuse some forums look down on it.
