Paul the octopus was right!!!!



Sea Life Aquarium's psychic octopus, Paul, chose Spain to win the semifinals over Germany

If you’ve been following the World Cup, you know about Paul. He’s the 2 1/2-year-old octopus who lives at Sea Life Aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany.

And he’s a psychic.

So far, Paul the Octopus has used his nine brains (one main and eight smaller brains in each arm) to tap into his sixth sense and he’s picked Germany to advance out of the the first round (including the 1-0 loss to Serbia), win the round of 16 and the quarterfinal matches.

“It’s a cute octopus. […] We’ve been playing quite a lot. He’s an active octopus and I would say we’ve fallen in love with him.” says Paul’s keeper

The team who takes care of Paul started this game two years ago during the European Championships. Basically, they set up two square glass jars in Paul’s aquarium, one with the German flag on it and another one with the opposing team’s flag. Paul’s handlers then put mussels in both jars and whichever jar Paul chooses to eat from is the team that he predicts will win.

Latest Paul’s prediction was made yesterday while eating the mussels from the glass jar with the Spanish flag on it. Germany and Spain met today in the semifinals and the winner (that’s of course Spain as our lovely cephalopod mollusk  predicted) moved on to face the Netherlands in the finals this weekend.

Paul the Octopus was right once again!!!!  VIVA ESPAÑA!!!!  I bet the whole Spain must be going crazy now.

Congratulations Spain!!!
