The gentleman shown speaking with a microphone in his hand near the end of the video is an expert squid scientist. He participated in the dissection of the collosal squid which has been shown on Discovery/Science Channel.

See the story on using a cellphone camera image to reproduce a key, using just a photo of the key. Better quality photos taken from even from hundreds of feet away can be used to do the same. Some of you may have already known this, but my question is - has this happened?

Some don't care if you know they were there or not, they just smash and go. But if someone wanted to get in and get information without you knowing they had even been there, this would be one method.

For the curious, the video gives the Japanese name for this kind of squid as "daiou-ika" (ika = squid). Also they declare it to be a sea monster ("umi no monstaa!").
