I fear that to understand the above described "drinking like a squid" wine bias, one must assume the poor squid to surely have become an ailing administrator squid rather than a young research God squid, over time :wink:

PS: In the video, one can see that the arms are of unequal length in this particular case, one is a stub, two arms ( visible in shot 00:07/00:08) are clearly longer. Tentacles? I doubt it, but I think the squid suffers predation and so sometimes arms get chewed off by whatever is eating these beautiful (indeed, Kat) creatures.

Beautiful indeed, but clearly an underachiever on the exercise front. Does slightly remind me of the drunk from wizard of ID..

Could those arms possibly be like Nautilus arms? It looks kinda like a sheath holding some inner arms that dangle below.

The words hideous and ugly have no meaning in the world of Cephalopods, please just disregard that report. :wink:
