The Psychic Octopus





(Art by Kozyndan)

Apparently an octopus in Germany has been correctly predicting the outcome of World Cup games. (Even the upsets.) Check it out here.

Did the octopus see the US winning its group this afternoon? If so, he's better than some England fans I've met, who informed me we didn't stand a chance.

Pride goeth before second place, as they say. (Sorry, couldn't help myself.)

Is the owner rich? If not, it's more likely a hoax. That's the kind of luck that when you stumble on to it, you make a mint winning bets.
