Invasion of the Giant Squids

Giant squids! Sorry to startle you, but we're just so excited. You see, they're giant squids! And they're invading California beaches by the hundreds!

An article from the AP explains that the squids weigh up to 60 pounds each, but most tip the scales somewhere between 20 and 40 pounds. And, yes, they squirt ink when irritated.

Web searches on the giant squids (GIANT SQUIDS!) are already off the charts. One-day spikes on both "giant squids" and "giant squids in California" surged from near-zip into the thousands. Folks clearly want to see these gargantuan creatures for themselves.

Despite their intimidating heft and tendency to spew ink, the squids aren't scaring off local fishermen. As of today, around 400 of the giant squids have been nabbed by anglers. That number is likely to rise. An article from San Diego 6 explains that locals "started booking twilight fishing trips over the weekend to catch them."

The last time the giant (aka “jumbo” aka “Humboldt”) squid made waves in Search came last September, when a record-breaking 19 ½-foot-long, 103-lb beast was pulled from the Gulf of Mexico.

MyFoxLA hosts a collection of photos of nabbed squids.

Amazing Meteor Shower Tuesday

One of the best annual meteor showers will peak in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday, and for some skywatchers the show could be quite impressive.

The best seats are in Asia, but North American observers should be treated to an above average performance of the Leonid meteor shower, weather permitting. The trick for all observers is to head outside in the wee hours of the morning – between 1 a.m. and dawn – regardless where you live.

The Leonids put on a solid show every year, if skies are clear and moonlight does not interfere. This year the moon is near its new phase, and not a factor. For anyone in the Northern Hemisphere with dark skies, away from urban and suburban lighting, the show should be worth getting up early to see.

Veterans Day

Today is November 11th and people in the United States, are celebrating Veterans Day, which is also known as Armistice Day. Veterans Day is a day to honor and celebrate the veterans, who have defended their country.

But it is also a day of sadness, because there are so many that have lost their lives trying to defend their country. Veterans Day is a legal holiday in USA, both state and federal and was declared a National holiday back in 1938.

According to dailyamerican.com, there are still 25 million living veterans, so today is not only a time to be proud of the soldiers who have died fighting for their country, but to also be grateful to those who have served and are still living.
