Rand0m - The Octopus Who Loved His Mr. Potato Head

Yeah, I know, long title, pretty much spoiled the whole thing.

Oh well, here's the story.

Louis the octopus clearly thinks two heads are better than one when it comes to toys.

The 1.8m-wide (6ft) creature is so attached to Mr Potato Head that he turns aggressive when aquarium staff try to remove it from his tank.

The giant Pacific octopus was given the toy for Christmas and has even learned to dig out food hidden in a secret box at the back of it.

'He's fascinated by it,' said Matt Slater, of the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay, Cornwall. 'He attacks the net we use to fish the toy out every time we try to take it away.'

Mr Slater added: 'Octopuses are very intelligent and they like to be stimulated and busy.'

So there you have it, taken from this site

Oh, and in case you're wondering, yes, that's actually a real picture of an octopus holding a child's toy underwater.

Rand0m - Darwin's Evolution Theory Proved Wrong!

To anybody reading this blog, let me first tell you a bit about myself.

I am Christian,
and I have moved over 5 times in my short lifetime.

Okay, so the second point may seem a little rand0m, but the first one has a bit to do with my post today (or tonight, rather).

For a while now, I've been trying to find ground to fight against Darwin's evolution theory, after I read a little blurb in Times magazine a long time ago (at least I think it was Time/Times... I saw it in a doctor's office somewhere). It said somewhere along the lines of "Darwin takes back evolution theory". Now, of course, Darwin had been dead for some time, but this piqued my interest.

So recently I did some researching, and I found this website.

While the site's name is, it is not some bible-thumping site claiming false evidence against popular theories.
Rather, the people (or person) who post there actually take quotes from different scientists and pit them against each other (namely, evolutionists VS creationists).

I'm fairly certain that the things they say are true, but since it is considered a sin to lie yet lying is part of human nature, I cannot be completely sure.

Anyways, check it out, and comment on it. I want to know how you feel about a long-held belief being shattered by the very ones who helped promote it, once upon a time.
