OK, here's something I wanted to ask /an/.

So as it turns out giant squids are actually pretty chill, not vicious monsters, but total bros when swimming with Japanese divers. What about the colossal squid, though?

There was a story about a submarine getting "clawed" by a squid - most likely a colossal one, nowadays it's well known that Architeuthis does not have claws -, is there any truth to that? And does anyone have a source, or details on it?

Thanks for any help.

>tfw cephalopods will never develop long enough lifespans to evolve cultures and become the next sapient species

That's why you buy a shit ton of massive aquariums, and then start breeding octopi to create a genetic strain of them with extended lifespans. Dedicate your entire life to this. Then when you are old and laying on your death bed, release a flood of super stronk aryan master race octopi into the ocean where they will spread their superior genes and help their species onto the next stage of evolution.

Kill yourself.

most lifeforms are extremely chill, bro. The cold unchill stressed ones are humans and machines.

It's the Humboldt squids that are vicious motherfuckers. They are sometimes called giant squids as well because even if they are several times smaller than an Architeutis they are still quite big compared to other squids (their maximun size is 2,5 m) .
That story probably involved those, because they are the ones that go to the surface most but they have teeth on their suckers (colossal squids have claws but they rarely appear on the surface alive).

Its actually not a lifespan issue, its that the mother's starve themselves to protect their eggs. The result is noncontinuous generations, and so they have no culture to pass down. Thats what needs fixing.

First contact with a Giant squid and it was none of us, why live?

>>2060777
Nah m8, cutllefishes and squids die right after they mate.
>>
>>2060910
I was more talking about octopussies. Squids and cuttlefish arnt nearly as smart as their 8-armed brethren.
>>
>>2060910
Not all do, some survive to pass on a second generation.

it was probably trying to fuck the sub

smart enough to communicate using a complex language using light signals is smart enough for me

The novel "City" by Clifford D. Simak has a guy who builds a little greenhouse for an ant hill, figuring that the reason ant's don't have an advanced society is because every winter the ground would freeze, and a colony had to start over from (almost) scratch in the spring.

The greenhouse gives them a warm safe environment, and within a year they've already invented the wheel and rudimentary technology, and industry.

When the guy gets tired of the experiment, he kicks over the greenhouse, and stomps the anthill. Hundreds of years later this ant colony is approaching the singularity.

Pretty good read.
