AARON PAUL JUST POSTED THIS ON TWITTER AND I’M SHITTING
Kind of like the bunnies that hang out under the shopping carts at World Market, I wish hiding in plain sight really made me invisible.
Working two jobs is kicking my ass. If you think one retail job is terrible, try pairing that with a grocery job in addition. It’s overwhelming dealing with people as much as I have to. I’m a week behind on…everything, basically. My one day off for the past two and a half weeks has consisted of taking Heather to work, two weeks’ worth of laundry, trying to figure out if we can afford health insurance (ugh), applying to more jobs to try to get my career back, researching and starting application materials for grad school, and squeezing in a few minutes with Bruce whenever I can. Not to mention all of the stuff I won’t have time to get to before I have to be back at work before dawn.
Still around, responding to messages and things when I can. Just too busy to exist at the moment.

Staff believe that the octopus called Otto had been annoyed by the bright light shining into his aquarium and had discovered he could extinguish it by climbing onto the rim of his tank and squirting a jet of water in its direction.
The short-circuit had baffled electricians as well as staff at the Sea Star Aquarium in Coburg, Germany, who decided to take shifts sleeping on the floor to find out what caused the mysterious blackouts.
A spokesman said: “It was a serious matter because it shorted the electricity supply to the whole aquarium that threatened the lives of the other animals when water pumps ceased to work.
“It was on the third night that we found out that the octopus Otto was responsible for the chaos.
“We knew that he was bored as the aquarium is closed for winter, and at two feet, seven inches Otto had discovered he was big enough to swing onto the edge of his tank and shoot out the 2000 Watt spot light above him with a carefully directed jet of water.”
Director Elfriede Kummer who witnessed the act said: “We’ve put the light a bit higher now so he shouldn’t be able to reach it. But Otto is constantly craving for attention and always comes up with new stunts so we have realised we will have to keep more careful eye on him - and also perhaps give him a few more toys to play with.
“Once we saw him juggling the hermit crabs in his tank, another time he threw stones against the glass damaging it. And from time to time he completely re-arranges his tank to make it suit his own taste better - much to the distress of his fellow tank inhabitants.”
This is one smart octopus.
No but for real though
scientists have theorized that if the octopus had a longer life span, they would create underwater civilizations THAT IS HOW SMART THEY ARE
JUGGLING THE HERMIT CRABS
If they had longer life spans they would rule the WORLD!! LOL
