I’m sure we have all seen one of the many movies of Air Bud or possibly the fainting goats on youtube. Here is an interesting topic that I recently learned about myself. Apparently, over the course of this previous world cup, there was an octopus that pre-determined the outcome of every match correctly. A psychic octopus named Paul! There are many talented animals I have heard about all over the world but this particular talent is a particular favorite of mine. If you are a bookie taking bets for world cup soccer games, I strongly suggest buying a psychic octopus like Paul.
Unfortunately, Paul the octopus died on October 26, 2010 at the age of two and a half. Paul was located at the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany. His unique gift came from deciding which treat he liked better. Paul’s handlers placed shells and various goodies inside two glass tanks; one with one flag of a country and the other with the corresponding country’s team. Paul the octopus would float down and choose the first box he saw fit. Surprisingly, every time Paul chose the first box, his prediction of which team would emerge victorious came true.
