Things have been a bit heavy around here for the past few days, so I figured that you folks deserved some light relief. Here it is.
For the benefit of those of you who didn’t click through, it appears that squid, the smaller varieties thereof anyway, can indeed fly. They use the same jet propulsion system that they use under water. The biologists concerned think that they developed this ability because flying takes less energy than swimming, and perhaps to escape predators.
Now all they need to do is work out how to achieve escape velocity.
