An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.

An octopus in Germany was annoyed by a bright light shining into his tank, so he climbed up over the rim and squirted water at it to short it

Fuckin’ octopuses, man. 

I LOVE OCTOPI SO MUCH

I just thought you all ought to know that Evan Roberts is a piece of shit who justifies violence against women at shows in the name of “art”. Do not book his band and do not defend him.

Victim blaming was persistent. The comments blamed her for being at a punk show because shit like this happens. 

Unless you are in a mosh pit, shit like this does not “just happen”. Even if it did, it’s unacceptable. 

We go to punk shows to listen to music, maybe to slam a little bit, getting bruised up and sore is part of the game.

Getting your head slammed into a wall isn’t. Let me tell you what happened. He approached her fast, body slammed her hard - I couldn’t really see how, but she was shoved back really hard and whacked her head. Then he let up and we weren’t even going to leave yet - we were processing what happened - and he slammed her against the wall again.

Now, here’s something you should know about me and my friends. We don’t mosh. We stick to the back walls and corners to open up the space. This is our MO. We know there’s a certain amount of physical contact involved in shows and we respond to it accordingly. We were, as Mr. Roberts suggests we should be, in the back by the exits.

We left. Still singing, he followed us, staying at the door while we walked to the car. We’d had enough.

She confronted him later about how dangerous that was. It seemed to go okay. They shook hands. And then he posted this.

I’d just like to ask you all one thing, and then I’m done for now. I posted this response and ended up having a conversation about it online with some folks who were there, some who weren’t, and, well… it was pretty weird.

What does this victim blaming/apologist language sound like? I’m paraphrasing, but…

"You know what happens when you go to shows"
"He didn’t mean to"
"He was just having fun"
"It’s not his/my fault"
"You should’ve done ____ and it wouldn’t have happened"
"It wasn’t even as bad as you made it sound"
"He didn’t do anything"

… oh, wait. yeah. I know exactly what that sounds like. That sounds like the rhetoric of rape culture. Displacing blame onto the victim of an act of violence. Believe it or not, some of the folks I talked to debated whether or not this was an act of violence.

This post will soon be added to with the comments section, but their names will be whited out. Mine and this guys though? We’re both pretty proud of what we’re saying. I think I’ll leave that as is.

It’s okay to do something wrong and apologize, as long as you make sure you never do it again. Looking before you throw your body to make sure the space is clear is an easy way of doing that. Instead, when confronted, he crucified himself.

Do me a favor and blast this.
