This is definate BS.

 

Marine Boutique do NOT ship internationally. And they got it shipped out of thailand? Why? We do not allow import of invertebrates into Australia and I do not see why they would deal with them.

 

Aus Customs would never let it leave the country without some very specific export/import documents, and while i'm not sure about the import conditions in the US, im sure your customs agencies wouldnt let it just get mailed into the country unquestioned and without quarantine.

I call shenanigans on the newspaper article :P

 

Though talking to an aquarist who actually does keep blue rings, he said they are common hitchickers in rocks that wholesalers get (just like mantis shrimp).

It is a fake article, hence my laughter. I certainly would not have laughed had it actually occurred. Search for "fake newspaper" and youll find the link.

 

I call shenanigans too on the topic.

He was online this morning. It's obvious the thread poster is just sitting back in his chair laughing about the whole thing.

Regardless of what he's doing, if it was fake thats a pretty nerdy and obscure prank to pull. Whatever floats your boat I guess. The article was funny though.

I watched a guy free dive for octopi in hawaii - he had spear and he'd dive down to the rocks and poke the spear around in some holes. When the octopus grabs the spear he'd pull it out and bit it between the eyes to kill it.

 

So you need a stick and get ready to bite the thing in the head before it bites you.

 

Good luck and have someone shoot video... thank you.

 

 

my gf and her mom were just having a very serious conversation, and at the worst possible time i read that post, and proceeded to burst out laughing uncontrollably, slapping my palm on my leg. everyone's staring me down now...

i live in seattle and to keep one here or get one your suppose to get a license from the government. i talked to to the seattle aquarium and if you had one in a bag and wanted to donate it they wouldnt take it just becuase of that. i have however seen them at LFS who had one hitchhick on LR :)

I always thought that a successful troll was one that was able to keep all the lulz to themselves.

 

Since people caught on as soon as the first page and most following posts were "doesn't believe" and "fials to delivar", it seems as though this troll was less than moderately successful.

Eh, there are two types of trolling I suppose. What you have said is one type.

 

The other is just seeing how much of a gigantic sh## storm you can create. :lol:
