So I'm the only one that found that quicktime video downright disturbing? These creations look like nothing so much as grievously wounded animals marshalling whatever twitch responses remain in vain attempts to flee their attackers.

Yeesh, this is gonna give me nightmares about de-hooking fish for sure.

Not at all! I was deeply upset too!

Oh. No, I was just upset because I thought it looked really neat, and it's just an academic project so I can't play with it myself. Sorry, but good luck with that whole "dreams about dehooking fish" thing.

in return, let me just hope that you remember not to think of your mother when you next have sex.

Geeze, it's not like I suggested you hum Eye Of The Tiger or the theme to The A-Team.
