I usually like to wait till Wednesday before posting another blog entry so that everyone sees the voting appeal but this deserves mentioning.  It seems that at the closing ceremonies of the olympic games they had an Octobus:


This is just weird.  The Octobus has gone from a quirky mash up to some sort of oddly prophetic vision of the future.   Granted a tentacle filled vision of the future but a vision of the future none the less.

There are so many questions here.  Does English school children take such a poor view of school that this seemed required? Did the Japanese delegation find this to be culturally offensive? Or at the very least, some what threatening?  Why?  Just why did this happen?

Thanks to Micheal for finding this.

And Zephyr… You’re beginning to freak me out a little bit.
