Headline: "Octopuses came to Earth from space as frozen eggs millions of years ago" - stunningly there is an actual paper this is based on
Literally: Big, if true.
The #CambrianExplosion explained: alien cephalopods arrived, cryopreserved (on a comet?)
“Thus the possibility that cryopreserved Squid and/or Octopus eggs, arrived in icy bolides several hundred million years ago should not be discounted..."
Next time someone says "But that study has been through peer review"....
This’ll be controversial but I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest octopuses are not aliens that came to Earth from space 270M years ago via
Just because it's peer-reviewed doesn't mean it's true, via . Also, this is going to be the basis for the religion I'm starting.
WHA “One plausible explanation, in our view, is that the new genes are likely new extraterrestrial imports to Earth - most plausibly as an already coherent group of functioning genes within (say) cryopreserved and matrix protected fertilized Octopus eggs."
You know how that octopus is always correctly predicting the outcome of sporting events? Maybe they not only came from space, but from the future! #bifftannen
