    oh, that was Great Aunt Hortense, dear lady, a little stringy though. That’s why we didn’t finish.

    Hoorah! I’m in Massachusetts right now but I live in Santa Cruz and it brought a smile to my face to see us mentioned on BB.

    Can we print a squid?

    There’s one bigger than this living near the outflow from Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant. A beautiful miniature tropical zone there, but no coastal access nearer than 10 miles. I used to sneak out there in my kayak to spearfish – but all us locals knew how to deal with giant squid. Built a little pressure bottle out of 4130 steel. Put a nozzle on it, filled it with Windex at 30 atmospheres. Nothing can withstand Windex.

    I was about to ask the same question.

    Or maybe we could print things out of squids. That would be a great combination of awesome and horrifying.

    Quick 3-D prototyping! machine automatically constructs them from squid parts!

    what’s so strange about this? You people practice burial at sea (thanks for the snacks), some of my people practice sky burial.

    Hahahaha, CARREM. Torturing giant squids is her new game!!

    I’m beginning to think that giant squids aren’t that rare. We just don’t go to where they are (deep ocean) very much.

    Tak-tak, what would be the appropriate pronoun here? Hmm?
