Didn't you do something incredibly stupid with a bonfire, Funko? :cute:

MoSe
15-04-2005, 11:39:54
yes, yes he did.
it was documented here:
Yeah, heat me with your love, ah ah
You opened up my heart, I just can't live
Without you,
Oh, I just couldn't live another day, your my-
Bonfire, your love is like a bonfire burning deep
Within me
Now some folks said it's no good to smoke in bed
Uh, huh
But I just take off my clothes and I jump into
The fire again.

Is that octopus real?

Funko

I dunno. It's incredible isn't it. I knew their camoflage was pretty amazing but well...no idea if that's real or not.

I guess it is photoshopped, even the eye morphs into someting else, that is not possible.

http://www.australiancephalopods.com/occy_defense.html

Being soft bodied (Lacking an external shell or internal skeleton), octopuses make a perfect meal for predators, particularly larger fishes, sharks or seals. Many octopuses take advantage of their lack of skeleton by squeezing themselves through tiny holes into crevices or burrows. An octopus with a 30-centimetre arm span can squeeze through a hole the size of a fivecent piece. Still octopuses have had to develop a wide range of other defences to escape predators.

The greatest array of defence strategies occurs in shallow-water, bottom-living (benthic) octopuses in the family Octopodidae. Diurnal octopuses such as the common Day Octopus (Octopus cyanea), which emerge and forage during daylight hours on coral reefs, have developed exceptional camouflage capacities. They produce elaborate colour patterns and highly complex skin textures capable of matching a wide range of backgrounds from sand and reef rubble, through to spiked corals and seaweeds. Their skin changes almost instantaneously as they move over different substrates on the sea floor. Colour changes are carried out by small, elastic, pigment-filled sacs, known as chromatophores. A square centimetre of skin may contain hundreds of chromatophores, in up to five colours in certain species. Each chromatophore is surrounded by a ring of muscle fibres, all of which are under the rapid and coordinated control of the large optic lobes of the brain. As a backup defence, most octopuses also have an ink sac that produces highly concentrated black, red or brown pigment. Small amounts of ink are squirted out the funnel to produce either a dummy decoy or, in some species, a full smoke screen that can mask a volume of water up to several cubic metres, leaving predators chasing their own tails. The ink is also thought to dull the senses of the predator.

Yes. I recognised the footage from a documentary.

Apparently some biotech companies are looking at it to try and make camo for the military.

Not the easiest process to study in a lab/.

If go click and hold the scroll bar at just the right point, you can get the moment of impact to loop over and over.

Serves the bastard right.

If you haven't got Window or other media player installed it won't work... is that why?

I do have winamp, but no windows media player

Cruddy

Winamp certainly plays files off your hard drive - but direct connects from the Net? Doesn't that depend which version - or maybe it doesn't do it at all.

Long time since I had that installed, I can't remember.

You so have to go to the top rated updates page, and look at the carwash movie. Totally NSFW, but great. :beer: :beer: :beer:

You should not use gasoline, which has explosive potential, to ignit fires. You should use a kerosine or a non flare up charcoal lighter fuel.

argh. I really want to see this video. I downloaded windows media player 10, and it still doesn't work.

Is there something else you have to click on after click the link to the fire? Is it supposed to automatically come up? What kind of file is it? What program runs the file (is it windows media player?).

Immortal Wombat

It's an embedded Windows Media file. Here (http://media2.big-boys.com/files/bonfireblowup.wmv)'s the direct link, do the save target thing.
