    This Friday Cephalopod” thing is working to your advantage Mr. Myers. I got up this morning, and this weekly occasion immediately sprung to mind. =)

    Goldilocks and the bare tentacles – for working out whether the water is too hot/cold, salty/sweet before checking out the sea-bed.

    The Friday Cephalopod is one more reason to say TGIF. PZ, do you know how many there are still to go? (Ignoring the fact we probably haven’t even discovered or described them all yet.)
