Consider this a big, many-tentacled squeeze from me to you. This year, I've expanded into new habitats, learned new tricks (like driving the Shambulance), and seen lots of new readers swimming by. I'm grateful to every person who visits and shares these pages. You've given me a reason to learn about wine-making wasps and anti-placebos, to taste no-calorie noodles and verbally abuse sheep. Say hello in the comments! For each of the 12 days of Christmas I'll be leaving a little something here to unwrap. The first is a video of an octopus receiving a live crab in a jar. After menacing the crustacean briefly, it unscrews the jar's lid and squeezes its whole body inside to devour its prey. Talk about a stocking stuffer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kuAiuXezIU
