Happy Air-Kraken Day!

Some of you may be aware of the scourge of the skies - the deadly Air-Kraken. Though Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote of them (The Horror of the Heights), and the whole ecology supporting these sky based terrors, they seem to have been mostly forgotten about. Well, with March being the height of their mating season, it’s as good a day as any to look warily to the skies and remember the mighty Air-Kraken.

It is of course, St. Patrick’s Day also, so perhaps you’ll take a glass or two of whatever tickles your fancy, and look to the skies to see if you might by chance spot an Air-Kraken flitting between the clouds - it’s probably the very best time to do so. Current theories believe them to be either semi-transparent and made from mostly aerogels, or alternately colour-changing like water-based squid and supported aloft by sacs of hydrogen.

Oh Squidy, my Squidy,
Swishing through the air.
Where you're bound
I do not care.
Whate'er the price,
I'll pay the fare.
Just take me there, Squidy,
Just take me there!

T'ain't Yeats,
But t'was fun!
