    "Japanese scientists have photographed for the first time in the wild a live giant squid, one of the most mysterious creatures of the deep sea."CNN.com - Scientists photograph giant squid

    Very cool news for any dork. Those zany Japanese have done it again, this time filming for the first time a giant squid in the wild. The squid, which measures 25 feet in America or 8 meters for the rest of the world, was filmed attacking some bait off the coast of Japan's Bonin Islands.

    The pictures are cool, but it's tough to see the scale of the thing. Leave the science to Japan and leave the fear mongering to the United States. It's only a matter of time now before some nutjob nature show guy is wrestling one of these things.

    Apparently this poor fellow also left one of his monstrous tentacles behind as it got caught on the bait. The tentacle has not hit eBay as of the time of this printing.
