    I must say that the brew reminded me (visually of course) of a light miso soup…
    I was in there for about an hour yesterday and could ‘taste’ the fixitives in the air. So no – I will not taste the mixture for you :-)

    We are in Wellington and have been glued to the computer over the last few days. I think it is great the amount of people from around the world who have been able to share in this exciting and interesting event.

    Thanks again

    It can be used as sheepdip – know any farmers who want 10,000 litres of slightly used formalin in about a month’s time?

    Earlier on they said the colossial squid is a boy and the giant one is a girl

    From what I remember hearing earlier they do not know what sex the squid is.

    It seems to have been getting murkier, probably from the squid itself. Not sure if there is too much they can do about it.

    What gender is the squid please, and if it is a male, what does the morphology suggest about its repoductive technique?
    thanks
