“If you have time to watch Netflix you have time for a side hustle” my side hustle is relaxing so that my body and brain can heal from by this nose-to-the-grindstone bullshit. I refuse to feel guilty for being a human with the need to relax sometimes. my side hustle is no.

whenever i hear about hustle culture i always think about this post on r/antiwork

The last few krakens and giant squids I saw in any media had entirely soft suckers like an octopus so now I’m wondering something.

Giant squid generally have “tooth lined” suckers, and the colossal squid’s two longer tentacles have suckers that evolved into full blown claws all over them.

Did you know squid limbs were covered in fangs and blades before this post

yeah of course who didn’t

I knew there was something or other like that

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (NO)

COOL ocean facts!! Humboldt squid (up two two meters in length) are known to attack people who are diving among them at night! In one of the two most thoroughly documented cases a nature photographer Alex Kerstitch was attacked by multiple humboldts at once who started rapidly pulling him downward, dragging him almost 30 meters deeper into the ocean in just minutes! They were able to tear off some of his equipment but thankfully not his mask, which would have definitely killed him, and they left him covered in bloody cuts!

An even nastier case was ONE OF the times they ganged up on Scott Cassell, a former sniper assassin and underwater combat specialist who now apparently hunts down wildlife poachers (holy shit???), aside from being a sea warrior he is like a lead expert on specifically these squid but his underwater powers and love for them did not stop them from dragging him down so hard they dislocated his shoulder and the pressure change ruptured his eardrum!

This is his own webpage about squids repeatedly beating the ever loving shit out of him and how they will do it to you, too:

Something else I’m not sure if people know or not, unless of course you’ve ever eaten them, is that cephalopod tentacles are pure solid muscle tissue. When they’re outstretched they’re more noodly of course but squids can contract them like short fingers as you might have noticed!

Think about how dense and tough that must be! A bunch of them all clenched together in one tight cone! Scott says they will ram into you with this at full speed

…….“A large squid moved to within two feet and flashed again. Mesmerized by the strobe effect, I didn’t see that another squid was rushing in from my left. Bam! It hit me with a tentacular strike that felt like being hit with a baseball bat square in the ribs. Shocked by the power of the strike and unable to breathe because of a cramp in my chest, I turned to see what had hit me and saw four more squid headed toward me”

Anyway I wish squid weren’t just in the ocean but could fly, I think that would be exciting!
