Well it certainly makes the case that the octopus is psychic much more plausible. its certainly got me off the "yea right, psychic my ass" bench and onto the "well their are SOME things we just can't explain" bench

The first thing I thought when I learned that Spain won the World Cup was "FUCKING OCTOPUS!!!" That thing is a demon and must be killed with fire- whilst still underwater.

The Netherlands didn't deserve to win that game, they had no intention of playing to win right from the start. Well done Spain!

How do we know that octopus didn't get all of the games wrong? It could have predicted all of the loosing teams.

Being Canadian and having no team of my own to cheer for (C'mon Rugby World Cup 2011), it went pretty much like this:

Once France, Brazil, England, and the US were eliminated, I didn't mind who won, as I was already happy with the tournament.

I was then pushing for the Germans, as they were pretty fun to watch this year. Then I wanted the Netherlands to win, being the underdogs and all, but what can you do?

1. It's Soccer, not football.

2. Soccer is 60% diving. To participate in a soccer team you need a Bachelor's in Theater.

3. The other 40% of the game is divided between passing the ball, kicking at nowhere in particular and doing the airplane.

I wanted the Netherlands to win. Oh, well, can't have everything you want, I suppose.

Well, that's...interesting?

I'll await the result on how exactly it can do this amazing feat. I imagine it'll be underwhelming.

Funnily enough, I had no idea the World Cup was on today.
I thought it ended weeks ago.

Regarding the octopus, we should transplant its brain into a robot and let it govern us.

I was originally going to say let it live so it could be the new Nostradamus however, it was pointed out to me I could eat it and gain its powers.

This octupus is clearly a spawn of cthulhu which can see into the future. I vote we form a cult centered around it as a god.

And I'm guessing quite a few similar wacky experiments at predicting the score failed. This is just confirmation bias.

You got my vote for that as well, I'm also sure that's it's a spawn of great Cthulhu too. All hail Paul and death to his foes!

It was kind of obvious that Spain would win, given that they were the better team (having beaten Germany, who I thought should have won the World Cup in my opinion).

Though to be honest, the match was kinda dull... I fell asleep midway through the second half and woke up at the end because nothing was happening (and it was 5 in the morning).

Nope. It's football, son. You'd know that if you knew what FIFA stood for.

Hell yeah!!! Whenever I open up the monastary in the middle of the Atlantic to honor his watery birth, I shall make you one the high priests. You could even be in charge of sacrifices to the almighty one.

The reason Americans care so much about the football/soccer debate is because nobody else cares about the sport they call 'football'

Also I think paul had lots of clams riding on a Spanish win

Silly Puerto Rican man! It's not "soccer", that's just what the Yanks and most of Asia call it.
http://g.sports.yahoo.com/soccer/world-cup/news/its-football-to-you-soccer-to-me--fbintl_ro-soccervsfootball070110.html I found this article here rather interesting, take a look :p
Regardless, soccer is the wrong word. Therefore, as Americans call the game "soccer", they are wrong.

And I'm right, dammit. You play the game with your feet, not your socks!
