Bah! Slept right through it. The squid part though... The powers that be actually issued a warning to divers to be careful, as a curious man-sized squid can't really eat you, but they can take you really, really deep while trying to figure out what you are.

The article says a lot of people say that the earthquake made the giant squid come up on the beach. I think they have it backwards: THE GIANT SQUID CAUSED THE EARTHQUAKE, hoping it would destroy the city so the squid can move in and conquer.

Lucky for us, the earthquake wasn't as strong as the squid hoped. Next time may be worse.

I was walking along the beach, in the surf, near San Francisco once when a small earthquake hit. Tons of shrimp lept out of the ocean and pelted us for several minutes. It was a very surreal experience.

Also, they were delicious.

Aren't there spiky things on their paddle arms and the monstrous beak? Lots of pointy ends to...

start having nightmares about.

No wonder Lovecraft made Chthulu resemble such.

Did they move it back into the water? I hope so, since its still alive and everything.

Hivegod Im also with you, the worst way for me to die is being confined under water, I dont have a phobia of swimming but if asked the scariest way for me to die, thats it. You have now put a new twist on this...that would be horrible...I have a feeling one would drown before they took you deep enough to crush a person though.

I was awake at that time but I don't remember any earthquake yesterday. I am about 20 miles from La Jolla though...

I didn't know about the giant squid. That's awesome!
