    Surprisingly not as much damage as I would've thought.

    is that a fried octopus on the beach ?
    yum

      You realise someone died right?

        well it wasn't the octopus' fault

        "No one was injured and the damage so far appears to be limited to the facilities, according to the company."
        you may be thinking of the Virgin Galactic disaster where there was loss of life -
        but no octopus were harmed
