Paul the Prognosticating Octopus Passes On

Sadly, Paul the prognosticating octopus passed away at his aquarium in Germany on Tuesday (October 26). He was just 2 1/2 years old.

Paul, of course, was the "psychic" German octopus who correctly predicted the results of all of Germany's games in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, as well as calling Spain as the winner. Paul made his picks by selecting one of the many labeled food trays lowered into his tank. At one time, Paul received death threats from the fans of losing teams, but don't worry, this wasn't the work of assassins. The octopus died of natural causes.
