octopusCoordinated efforts to analyze data from multiple parts of the world's oceans during a decade-long Census of Marine Life have led to the discovery that most of the world's current deep-sea octopuses evolved from a common ancestor -- that's still living in the icy Southern Ocean. I love the speculation that evolution removed the octopus's ink sac because they no longer needed that defense in the dark, deep waters they were moving into.

Watching the Bills-Patriots game; Buffalo lost a lot of momentum when the refs missed that a New England reception was out of bounds, then missed that Buffalo's coach threw the challenge flag before the next play. The Pats scored a moment later. (Note: I'm a big Pats fan, but not when they're playing the Bills.)

Hash & EggsFeeling loads better, but I'm likely to stay in today anyway. Made a good breakfast and my first cup of coffee since Thursday. I'll probably take a shower during halftime.
