This thing is freaking HUGE!!!!

The Lusca is a creature that the people of the Bahamas have seen for years. It matches the description of a giant octopus. Is that possible ? Pictured above are the remains of a unknown species of giant octopus ? While we know that giant squids do exist, it has never been confirmed that a giant octopus does, in fact, exist. The octopus would be more likely to attack ships and sailors than a squid would, so if there is a giant variety of the species, this could add credibility to stories of giant squid/octopus' attacking ships. The Kraken was a sea serpent that was seen by thousands of sailors. The Kraken description matches that of the giant squid. How many "Kraken" attacks were the work of an giant octopus ? An estimate on the size of the corpse in the picture if it was an octopus would make the octopus 150 to 200 feet tip to tip of the tentacles. The cell samples of the corpse were taken to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC and tested. The cells of the creature were not identical to, but very closely resembled the octopus more than any other type of sea creature.

I recently found a D&D inspired mod for Civ3
one of the special sea units is a giant squid that is invisible until it attacks and does not give away its nationality

What roof.....
The S.O.B.'s are sentencing people to death at the Superdome. It can't handle a CAT 5 Hurricane.
Its suicide to be there.

Ist you will see on TV the flooding at the bottom of the Superdome.
Then the panic will start as people move up to higher levels and hallways.
The the big Roof will colaspes on people.
Then people will trample each other in the hallways.

Thanks to the media. Everyone will see it live.
