Scientists discover that colossal squid is actually just a lazy pink blob.Scientists discover that colossal squid is actually just a lazy pink blob.

The researchers found that the colossal squid would have had a slower metabolism and so moved slower than expected, waiting for prey rather than running it down. 'Everyone thought it was an aggressive predator, but the data suggests otherwise,' Rosa told LiveScience.

Lazy cereal box marketing.

I did a double take while munching on my favorite breakfast cereal this evening (yes, this evening). See photo below and look at the key marketing feature.

What ever happened to the free toy inside? Better yet, even a coupon to get some kind of free toy by mailing a specially marked package to some place that is probably run by elves. This is just lazy. Cereal boxes used to hand out all kinds of free stuff.

Now with better taste?   I am to believe that the old taste was far worse? Stop lying to me, Post Cereal. This box of sugar still tastes exactly the same. Thanks to you I now have a sugar headache when I should be sleeping. Instead, I'm writing a blog post about crappy cereal box marketing because I'm hyper from said sugar. And wipe that goofy smile of your face Flintstone, you corporate whore.
