I wanna see more pics! giant squid rule.... actually, squid outnumber humans in total bio-mass, they grow exponentially every year and tuna is a natural predator (for regular squid) which we are removing from the environment allowing squid to flourish... mabye one day they will develop intelligent brains and then they'd build "land suits" and INVADE!!! OMG, we gotta start eating the b******* before they have a chance! I will fight them whit my Soy sauce gun!!! In fact, we had become the greatest Cala,ari predator, has we fish it and kee the population in check.

Did it make news head-lines in America anywhere? I first read the article on UM and then saw the whole footage on the news. Probably only select channels are interested in publicizing it.
