MAN EATING GIANT SQUID DEVOURING FISH STOCKS
Express ^ | August 29, 2010 | Stuart Winter

Millions of killer giant squid are not only devouring vast amounts of fish they have even started attacking humans.

Two Mexican fishermen were recently dragged from their boats and chewed so badly that their bodies could not be identified even by their own families.

No wonder the giant squid are called “diablos rojos” – red devils.

Monster squid are the stuff of legend. But for fishermen and marine biologists along 10,000 miles of coast from Chile to Alaska, the myth has become reality.

And their story is told this week in a Channel Five documentary.

Here is why you don't want a squid wrapping it's tentacle around you.

Experts believe they may be taking advantage of warmer waters due to climate change.

Marine biologists wear chain-mail to protect themselves from creatures that can measure 8ft, weigh 100lb and carry an armoury of more than 40,000 fearsome teeth along two “attack” tentacles.

Said marine biologists Aragorn Smith and Boromir Johnson.

Well, I guess we should be feeding humans to the man-eating squids so they leave the fish alone.

“My cousin saw one of those in Arizona.”

We could solve the illegal immigrant problem by turning border patrol over to these creatures. And a few let loose in DC would do some good too.

Possibly. Although the squid really don't have much of a smell when they are being grilled. That is a grill and its get a lot of smoke, from the charcoal and the bits that drip down and splatter from things cooking. But the masks are a very common feature of life here...Taiwan.
People wear them because of air pollution and the fear of getting an "infection" from other people. Almost everyone wears them while riding on their motorscooter and quite lot of people just always wear them when they go outside. Really common.

I do not wear one. Drives my wife up a wall. She wears one on her 'scooter.

It's not their fault. They were provoked into doing this by those racist Tea Party people.

Fish should stick with bonds. Thanks BBell, and decimon.

I'm sure the "skeptical" community including their poster children at Mythbusters will be condemning that story.

Yes, thank you. I agree with your comments, having myself witnessed the use of masks like that in Taipei. And also having eating squid...in Taiwan.
