Oceans are a dyin', squids are a flyin'

"Oxygen-starved waters are expanding in the Pacific and Atlantic as ocean temperatures increase with global warming, threatening fisheries and other marine life, a study published [May 2] concludes." (la times)

And it's not just the lack of oxygen that's killing our little salt water friends, it's the JUMBO FLYING SQUID!!! AHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhh. Great, now I know that there are two animals that really shouldn't be flying that scare the shit out of me.

dude - those attack-squid would scare the bjeezis out of me ... if they didn't live at two thousand feet below the surface of the ocean. I'm not sure why they get to have bodies that can withstand the immense pressure under water and we don't, but damn, that's fucking deep.
