awesome, awesome octopods

A cool BoingBoing feature on octopus brains. Taken along with that nifty TV show I saw last year, "Underwater Aliens," which focuses on octopod intelligence, it's a fascinating glimpse of a type of consciousness that is both radically other and yet disturbingly familiar.

Then, of course, there's Bear Grylls showing us how to kill an octopus instantly.
