The Psychic Octopus Named Paul
Game predicting Octopus
Now I haven't been following the World Cup, and I definitely don't watch soccer. But this creature has been all over the news as of late. Why you may ask? Because Paul the Octopus is apparently psychic! Yea I know kinda creepy right? But they are saying that the Octopus has predicted games in the past and the turn out was right.
Apparently how Paul the Octopus picks the winners.....
They but two glass boxes into his tank with the team flags on them (I'm gathering that they only pick on the games that Germany is up against) put some sort of food item in it and then he picks the winners.
And the consensus is that he has had a remarkable 100% success rate in the pickings. According to the people at the Oberhausen Sea Life center, where Paul the Octopus, lives he has accurately predicted every game for Germany in this FIFA World Cup event.
So if Paul the Octopus is right this time - Germany will defeat England on Sunday. And even though I don't watch the FIFA World Cup, I might have to this time to see if the predictions are accurate! What about you?
