We could all learn a thing or two…

What won’t Cal Berkeley provide with us?  If not people protesting internet censorship in China and throwing red paint at Soccer Moms SUV’s, now they are providing us with research that could change our lives. 

It’s true, there is more than meets the eye when it comes to Octupus sex, and I think that we humans could learn a thing or two. 

1. “Males prefer large females,” Caldwell said. “If you’re going to invest in guarding, you want to get the most bang for your buck.”  (If we were Octupuses, I would’t have to waste money on my pesky personal trainer or say “I’ll pass” when the dessert menu comes by.

2.  “It was very common to have a very large male next to a large female,” Huffard said. “He could give her his sperm without leaving his den, and she didn’t leave hers. Nobody has to give up their apartment.”  (Well, this is just plain genius.  Men don’t have to put up with women nagging them about helping out around the house and women don’t have to deal with the ineveitable black leather recliner and enormous TV that wreak of testosterone).

Octupus sex.  I like the way they think

    My leather recliner is burgundy, as you well know, LeMare. And my enormous TV is splendid. And, reeking of testosterone, I wreak vengeance on anyone who says otherwise.

    I recall last football season during a game at Cal they interviewed some folks who were sitting in trees protesting the fact that renovations were to take place nearby to enhance the athletic facilities the school offers and, in fact, tree hugging was in full bloom. I think they still might be there months later, which begs the question how hard can it be to go to Cal when you can take classes while up a tree? WiFi aside, do the academic advisors and profs have to have arborist skills as well?
