Neil Diamond "music" has been known to kill cephalopods en masse from a distance of 30 meters...their hearing is soooo fine tuned, that they can sense the disharmony even if it is being played on a stereo of a vehicle driving down a road on the coastline ! Immediately, they flee the area in an act of self preservation...
Yeah, the article is a little whiny...but Dr SOS rocks !

Great article :smile:

I like the fact that the reporter actualy came out with you and seemed to do some of the work. Probably gave more insight into you and your passion for the search.
Sorry to hear you didnt find any squid on that trip. Were you planning any more adventures like this one?

Sparatcus,

There's nothing wrong with admitting a fondness for Nancy Sinatra! She and Lee Hazelwood did some awesome work together! Plus, "You Only Live Twice" is a beautiful song, particularly the live version on "Nancy in London"!

Anyway, back to the squid-hunt!
