The video of the elegant gastropod's remarkable descent shows the creature pirouetting in mid-air as it steadily reaches the ground before slithering away.

"Elegant Gastropod" is the name of my French-Australian fusion restaurant featuring Killer Escargot.

Back when I took Togakure Ryu ninjutsu they told us a story about a ninja who got into a warlord's attic, drilled a small hole, dropped a thread down to the warlord's mouth and ran poison down it.
