Isn't it obvious? The squid is waiting for his friends to arrive for a tailgate party. Go Huskies!!
If one follows the "mystery solved" link, there's an explanation:
"The photo is from the Japanese newswires. The squid was in the parking lot of a wholesale fish market somewhere in northern Tohoku Japan. The image was labeled “tohoku_shijou .jpeg��?, which means the ‘Tohoku [district] wholesale [fish] market’."
You'd think it was entitled to a handicap spot.
somebody put it there to reserve the space. this doesn't work in all instances, people like me will just park on top of it.
Some caution advised on work machines if you are following the "Mystery Solved" link. Theres a number of references to "Tentacle Sex" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tentacle_sex (also possibly NSFW). "Odd" doesnt even begin to describe it ...
"The comments section on 'Keyboards and Covert Channels' is turning into a real scum-magnet, attracting all the worst kinds of comment spam."
I know. I've been cleaning the spam out every day for over a week. I finally got fed up and turned off comments on that thread.
I don't like doing that -- sometimes people leave good comments on old threads -- but I didn't see any practical alternative.
"I know. I've been cleaning the spam out every day for over a week. I finally got fed up and turned off comments on that thread."
There must be an interesting paper in "What blog topics attract the most spam". I wonder if it's the 'keyboard' or the 'covert' that's attracting it.
Still holding out against captchas?
Well, I spelled it wrong, but in my defense, so many other people must also do so that it was the first link from Google. Not even a suggested spelling correction.
bob> [captchas] Already been cracked.
Not sure what you mean. Just because someone can point a bunch of cheap labor at them that doesn't mean they won't dramatically reduce the amount of comment spam.
