Ok, have you ever seen that science video of an Octopus that actually got out of its aquarium AND FREAKING WALKED over to another aquarium, then TOOK THE LID OFF, and went inside to eat all the fish?
YES. THIS REALLY HAPPENED.
Then, this Octopus got out of the second aquarium, REPLACED THE LID, and walked across to his OWN Aquarium and went inside.
The Scientists could not understand what happened to the FISH in the other aquarium. So they set up a camera and caught this.
THAT is some SPOOKY stuff right there.
That just isn’t even remotely normal.
Wait till you learn that Octopus can READ letters, UNDERSTAND SIGNS, communicate, and do things like open jars, unlock locks, and crawl across open ground to do things.
It’s straight up science fiction becoming real life.
So. we at Threadweird thought...
‘ok, this is some weird Octopus science right here. Lets investigate.’
And we found that FOUR main questions all drive the research behind Octopus (as if the above examples were not enough to convince you!)
The Four Main Questions for the theory and study of the Alien Octopus:
Did Life Form on Earth or was it Seeded?
The new report,Cause of Cambrian Explosion — Terrestrial or Cosmic?, argues that our existence isn’t based on these interplanetary building blocks alone.
Instead, it builds up the idea that our biochemistry has been contaminated by influences from beyond our own planet.
The authors argue that a cloud of organic material likely rained down upon the Earth about 500 million years ago. And that changed everything...“Life may have been seeded here on Earth by life-bearing comets as soon as conditions on Earth allowed it to flourish (about or just before 4.1 Billion years ago); and living organisms such as space-resistant and space-hardy bacteria, viruses, more complex eukaryotic cells, fertilized ova and seeds have been continuously delivered ever since to Earth so being one important driver of further terrestrial evolution which has resulted in considerable genetic diversity and which has led to the emergence of mankind.”
NBC even has more on this idea:
Octopuses have 33,000 genes, roughly 10,000 more than a human. This alone sets it apart from any other invertebrate in the world. They are also uncannily clever, with the ability to open jars, solve puzzles, and even use tools. It’s no wonder that some might think this creature is from another planet. In uncovering the sequence, scientists found that octopuses have a similar set of genes to those found in humans, that make up a neural network in their brains, which accounts for their quick ability to adapt and learn. We also share a large brain, closed circulatory system, and eyes with an iris, retina, and lens. All of these independently developed in another species vastly different from our own mammal origins.
Why do the researchers look at the octopus in particular?
Octopuses are weird. They are molluscs, meaning they are closely related to snails, and yet they are incredibly intelligent.
On top of their large brains and sophisticated nervous systems, the authors of the new paper list camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to camouflage themselves by changing colour and shape as evidence of their extra-terrestrial origins.
So suddenly did these features appear in the octopus family tree that “it is plausible then to suggest they seem to be borrowed from a far distant ‘future’ in terms of terrestrial evolution, or more realistically from the cosmos at large,” the authors write.
“Such an extraterrestrial origin as an explanation of emergence of course runs counter to the prevailing dominant paradigm,” they continue. This is a strong contender for understatement of the century.
Writers are fond of comparing octopuses to aliens due to their unusual appearance and great intelligence. Philosopher Peter Godfrey-Smith, who has written a book about octopus intelligence titled Other Minds, has described them as “the closest we will come to meeting an intelligent alien”.
Why and How do Octopus program their own RNA?
Shocking Claim: Scientists Think Octopuses Might Be Aliens After Studying Their DNA
According to a group of scientists, the lovable octopus, nature's aquatic contortionists, might actually be aliens not of this world. Researchers who mapped out the genetic code of the octopus found it to be so strange that it could actually be an extraterrestrial.
It's the first genome sequencing ever conducted on a cephalopod and it showed remarkable complexity with some 33,000 protein-coding genes identified - more than is found in a human.
Researchers also found that octopus DNA is highly rearranged, like a shuffled deck of cards. Their genetic code contains a number of "jumping genes" that leap around the genome.
“The octopus appears to be utterly different from all other animals, even other molluscs, with its eight prehensile arms, its large brain and its clever problem-solving abilities," said Dr Clifton Ragsdale, a researcher from the University of Chicago.
After this research I have found myself questioning if I should continue to eat Octopus. See, it tastes GREAT on Pizza.. I have grown fond of Australian Pizza that put baby octopus on it. The oven fired flavor takes the super chewiness out, and it's really tasty.
Next time I see a slice of pizza I just might think about Aliens.
So what do you think?
Does Octopus belong on Pizza? YES!
Pineapple on pizza? NO!

In West Virginia, the Mothman is a supernatural creature reportedly seen in the Point Pleasant area from November 15, 1966 to December 15, 1967. The first newspaper report was published in the Point Pleasant Register, dated November 16, 1966, titled "Couples See Man-Sized Bird ... Creature ... Something". Mothman is often seen JUST before Disaster strikes.
