Given how many hours I spend online every day, you'd think I regularly visit Metafilter. I don't. But I couldn't get there fast enough when Rusty Iron, knowing my fondness for all things tentacled, told me about this video of a giant octopus taking on a three-foot shark.
As enjoyable as the video was, I was even more delighted by Metafilter's link to Jonathan Lethem's site, specifically the glove compartment, which contains all sorts of Lethem's unpublished treasures. (My favourite? So far it's a toss-up between Top 5 Depressed Superheroes and The Loneliest Book I've Read, which brilliantly and simply summed up some inchoate thoughts about reading that I've never put into words.)
