We are great at crapping the world. That's something our species should be proud of.

The most ironical, is that some of us are dreaming about colonizing space and other planets : they would like to change a giant desert without water and oxygen into a more friendly environment, while we are changing our own and natural friendly environment into a giant and aggressive crapyard ...

About cephalopods, they are told to be very smart animals.
And cuttlefishes are very amazing when they change their colour to try to seduce females. Have you ever seen that ?
They are animals that I respect and that I generally don't eat ... (despite they only live 3 years old and are very appetizing) =o)

Do I seem obsessed or something?

I guess I am kinda focused on them, it's just that I can't get away from them, it's like they're after me...

I'm not paranoid.

I know, logically, that tornados are not out to get me. But it sure feels like it. First, a few weeks ago, one killed four family members and wounded two more. And they keep coming to my neck of the woods, hundreds of miles away.
