Yay evolution

I would like to think that they evolved to hunt flying fish. In a few eons maybe the air will have squid, fish, birds, bats, and insects flying all around. Too bad pterradactls aren't around anymore.

They look totally delicious.

I can't remember the exact series, but I watched some show that speculated cephalopods would eventually evolve into the next intelligent species once mankind is gone. I thought that was pretty cool.

Transcript of a televised race on Speed hosted by a squid:

"THIS RACE IS INTERESTING, BUT LACKS SUFFICIENT PREY ANIMALS AND WATER."

You may think this story is amusing now, but it's a sign of the ascendancy of Cthulhu.  He's coming up from the depths to take over the world and eat all our souls.

But are they known to assume direct control?

Cephalopods are absolutely amazing. If they ever get past the short lifespan, they'll take over the world in the end -- and the world will be a more flexible and colorful place.

The part about the last mammal being "farmed" by a species of spider that lived in colonies like ants was kind of depressing, though.
