Giant prehistoric krakens may have sculpted self-portraits using ichthyosaur bones:

A scientist said it, I can think of no further parameter needed - scientific fact.

Next thing needed is for a sleepless, fevered paleontologist, unable to chase the growing shadows from his mind, to come forward with his further interpretation of the ancient message laid out by this (extinct?) cephalopod mega-mind. A prophecy of doom? Is there any doubt?

That is the absolute most ridiculous pile of horse-shit conjecture I've ever heard.

And it''s awwwessome.

I agree. On both counts.

Personally, I think scientists should be required to come up with at least one ridiculous theory every six months, just to keep the mind limber.

I think scientists should be required to submit all their findings to Drabblecast.
Let us pick out the good ones, and Norm up the boring ones. Science would be so much more interesting, our science cons would be cool, and our kids' science scores would improve.

We could eventually award the KnowBell Prize. :roll:
To get things rolling, I propose (again, as if for the first time) the Drabblecast Annual Science Project.

My first project will be to keep throwing this spaghetti-like proposal against the wall, counting how many times this is necessary before it sticks.
