Germany's 'Octopus oracle' keeps perfect record

It won't come as much of a consolation to heartbroken German fans, but at least Paul, Germany's now world-famous "Octopus oracle", has maintained his perfect record.
The "psychic" creature has correctly predicted all six of Germany's World Cup games and, amid excruciating drama broadcast live on national television on Tuesday, plumped for Spain, causing anguish up and down the country.
And the eight-legged soccer soothsayer was spot on Wednesday, as Carlos Puyol's header shattered Germany's dreams of winning their fourth World Cup.

Two plastic boxes, one with a German flag and one with a Spanish, were lowered into Paul's tank at an aquarium in western Germany, each with a tasty morsel of food inside.

"Walangila is an entrepreneur and produces a local drink called 'Rutuku'. In the photo she is bravely raising her arm. She is an excellent customer of the Uamsho credit association, and is a 44 year old widowed mother of three.

'Rutuku' is an alcoholic beverage made from a mixture of fermentations and manioc flour, corn, sorghum etc that are heated to over 180 degrees C, then passed through a flask connected to a chimney outlet made locally. The refined drops are then collected in a flask and cooled in order to create a strong whiskey-like taste that is appreciated greatly by her customers.

Unlike a great majority of documentaries produced today, DMT is a rare subject where the medium of film is essential to the story. The only way to convey the sheer importance and power of the rehabilitation process is to witness it either in person or through the camera’s eye.

this is a friend's film. pretty amazing stuff. they are trying to raise money to finish the project if anyone can help out.

Jemande is a male name given in the Garifuna island of St.Vincent. A rough translation of it is to learn something new every day: the concept of Jemande personifies general knowledge.

I just realized the search term (in quotes) "haploid zombie" doesn't return very many hits. Good name for a punk band.
