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.

I TRIED TO WARN YOU

My night terrors just got a brand new star.

Autonomous Parapoetic Device (APxD mkII), Adam Parrish (2008?)

The Autonomous Parapoetic Device is a self-contained and portable machine that generates poetry. Constantly creating new sequences of words, lines, and stanzas, the APxD promises serendipitous encounters between aleatoric (but affective) text and our experience of physical space.

The text that the device generates is ephemeral: it remains on screen for only a small time, and then is replaced with a new (although algorithmically similar) text. No two interactions with the APxD are the same, leading to an endless variety of possible interpretations (is it descriptive? oracular? nonsensical?).

The APxD consists of an Atmel microcontroller connected to a 20×4 LCD screen, and runs for hours on two AA batteries. Conveniently packaged for use in the home or on the road.

The Queen Lived

by Jacob Clifton August 1, 2008

Dear Donna:

The world is wrong.

If you could see yourself the way I see you, it would be like nothing so much as a collection of stories. An infinite collection of stories, like a book. Like an infinite library: End one…
