Whiteox writes "A recent article in the SMH reports that researcher, Miss Renata Pronk has discovered that gloomy octopuses found in the Chowder Bay waters have the ability to view HDTV due to its increased frame rate of 50fps compared to the 25fps found on standard PAL.

It was via HDTV that she also found that octopuses show no trait of individual personalities even though they exhibit a high level of intelligence. The test involved showing video images of crabs, another octopus and a swinging bottle on the end of a string. Print version here"
