And amused. big_smile

Re: All about Air Krakens (and Air Kraken Day)

Seeing that Air Kraken Day is next week, I'm going to start post photos of some real life kraken type beasties every day leading up to it smile

you'll have to scroll down a bit, because this is on another one of those tumblr's where the owner insists on having a huge photo of themselves as the first thing you see, but the octopus photo really is very cool

So what is this "Air Kraken Day" about which I've been hearing so much? I don't believe that I have ever heard of this holiday.

Re: All about Air Krakens (and Air Kraken Day)

*blinks repeatedly* I am in shock!

Well the legend goes like this.  On Saint-Patrick's Day many fateful years ago some drunken steampunks looked at the sky and started reciting "The Horror of the Heights" by Sir Conan Doyle (who also wrote Sherlock Holmes and Lost World).  And since then we all look upon the sky in various degrees of terror on that day.
I'm not sure whether this really did instigate Air Kraken Day or if it happened at all, but that's the story I was told and I'm sticking to it because it amuses me smile

If you flip back to the first page of this topic you should find a link to a brass goggles entry also.

One week 'till Air Kraken Day, Cthulhu and Zoidberg are ready smile
(although there is still some debate going on about whether Zoidberg will be allowed to come, Sam seems worried he'll loose him)
