Friday Cephalopod: Falling Octopus


Quingdao, China had a rain of falling marine life after a sea tornado.

Well, now I know where I want to retire.

    Although I don’t doubt that marine life did fall from the sky, that picture of the falling octopus is fake (and not even a good fake). There is no motion blur on it even though it should falling pretty fast. It is not distorted from the raindrops on the window like everything else is in the picture. And the first result if you do a Google Image search for “octopus silhouette” is that exact image from shutterstock.

    @OverlappingMagisteria No, the octopus is not fake, IMHO it’s also on a windshield, photographed from the inside.

    OM #1 is right. That exact silhouette is available on Shutterstock, right down to having only seven tentacles.

    7 VISIBLE tentacles. I mean are all your appendages always visible? I think not.
