Anything You Can Do…


Talking about highly intelligent invertebrates here …

It embarrassed me somewhat – (not a lot though and no 🙄 I have NOT had sleepless nights over it) that an octopus might be able to ‘solve’ the one thing in life that firstly, I have NEVER had the inclination, determination nor aspiration to do (since I have traffic and deadlines and hungry children and bad hair days and broken nails and the joys and heartaches of life in general to deal with) and secondly I NEVER partake in anything voluntarily in my me-time that promises to frustrate, infuriate or torture me longer than I would allow an itch to settle between my shoulder blades…

But THIS spineless (highly intelligent) creature as featured on the photo IS holding a Rubik cube – and it IS playing with it… I only found out later that somebody with too much money and time on their hands is doing a test to see which of its 8 arms the octopus prefers using for ‘toys’ – or whether it is octidextrous. For whatever reason it is supposed to serve human kind how again?? 😕

Except for the fact that I have but 2 arms – I AM definitely octidextrous: I can sing a tune while sitting in rush hour traffic, smiling (AND wave AND BRAKE) graciously at everyone and anyone who needs to get there sooner than I do, think up a nice meal to cook, send 3 sms’s and make 4 calls, plus fill in my lipliner AND touch up my make-up, while taking off my coat at 80 km/h (around a bend) from UNDERNEATH the seatbelt, while wiping my sunglasses and changing the radio station, because I refuse to listen to bad news and need a soothing melody to drive home to… :mrgreen:

In order not to be out-IQ’d by a giant squid with 8 arms and NO traffic, no deadlines and no other disappointments in life, I decided to try it. I FINALLY did it!! I played with a Rubik Cube! It’s the most fun I had for a full undivided 109 seconds without Ritalin EVER!!!

 (The study / research never declared a successful solving of the Rubik Cube by any of the octopi – which just goes to prove… eeeehhhmmmm what again 😕

Than an octopus is color-blind?

You tell me 😉
