    I watched Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea over the weekend.

    That squid is HUGE!

    It did remind me of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

    Are giant squids edible?

    If you can catch one! Probably feed all an entire city.

    I've gotta' remember to watch 20,000 Leagues this weekend. Brings back great family memories and film buff fun. Love it when you guys bring up cool stuff!

    I remember watching a documentary about them about a few years back. It was hard to tell how large they were in the water. Then one of the divers got close to it and then you could tell, that's a lot of calamari. It just makes you wonder what else is down there that we haven't discovered yet.

    I can't imagine spending a minute in a submarine, much less 400 hours in a small one. All just to get a glimpse of a big sea creature. I agree legalmania, who knows what else is in there!

    I think inner-space has far spookier Aliens than outer-space-- the sea is chock full of unimaginables. I like land, personally. :hen:

    I recall looking at their amazingly large nervous system in bio-psyche... they are of definite interest to neurology, imo.

    After seeing illustrations of tales of 'kraken' dragging under sailing ships in the 19th c., this fellow looks unimpressive. Sort of looks like the cousin of the lobster I dissected in twelfth grade Advanced Bio. Am sure a meeting in person would convince me otherwise, however.

    Deep sea is full of interesting life. It is not well explored. We know more about Mars's surface than the abyss.
