  • Paul, the Octopus, the favorite sea creature during the last World Cup Soccer has died at the age of 2.5 yrs. Steffan Porwoll, a manger at Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany, where Paul lived and made his famous predictions said that Paul had passed away peacefully during the night, of natural causes. Of course, the conspiracy theorists are speculating other reasons for his death.
    Jiang Xiao, a Chinese Filmmaker, who is making a film titled "Kill Paul Octopus" about Paul's predictions, told Guardian that she was "60 - 70 percent sure that Paul was dead on 9th July and the Germans have been covering up his death. . . . Octopuses all look the same. It is impossible to tell the difference."
    For the Paul lovers, a condolence section has been set up on his facebook page, and the Sea Life Centre has decided of honoring his life with a burial plot and a modest permanent shrine on their grounds.
