    I bet that Brazil was going to be champs, Spain end up second and Germany third. I dont get any points for the champ of course but if I get Spain and Germany right, I win the bet!

    Go Netherlands!

    My guess is Holland as long as they can get the first goal. Spain`sw football playing is very negative they just pass the ball back and forth in their own half until they score a lucky goal (after which they play even more negatively). Holland shows true talent, so if they score first Spain will have to catch up and it will become interesting.

    marcus, octopi are actually very intelligent. If you don`t know anything about the sport, it may be better to trust an octopus, or any animal, for that matter.

    Also... you seem to think that support = believe will win... that is entirely wrong, and everyone with an ounce of intelligence in ANY field, not just sports, knows it.

    @siyanor, im not doubting the intelligence of the octopus.
    Im just saying that I think that its ridiculous that people seriously beleive that an animal that probably has no knowledge of the world cup, or indeed football, can predict who will win. i find it even more rediculous that a person would support a team because of said octopus.

    Unlike the average sports fan apparently. The plural of octopus is octopuses.

    Yep, you GOTTA believe an octopus who lives at least twice the longest known octopus lifespan (3 years).

    Isn`t it that all things that end in - us can be pluralised with - i and - uses? I`m confused, just had a year in latin classes, can`t really recall whether it was things on - um on-i or things on - us

    Actually Lionhart2 it can be octopuses, octopodes or octopi. Although octopuses is the most commonly used version. And although octopi is actually wrong, it`s a generally accepted term.

    I think someone should do their homework before corecting other people in such a rude way.

    Actually AbiElectric, homework is exactly the crux of the problem. If people knew anything about the roots of words, they would know that the plural being `i` or `uses` depends whether the word originally came from Greek or Latin. The other is NEVER correct, just ignorant. And `octopodes` is not correct either, because we are talking about English, and octopodes is the correct plural form IN LATIN not English.

    As for the amazing octopus in question, I don`t know a lot about sea life, but it seemed unlikely to me that a creature which only lives a few months after breeding could live long enough to predict 8 winners in a row as the media are now saying (it was 6 a few days ago) so I googled `octopus lifespan` and found that even in the most favorable circumstances, the longest-lived species manages about 5 years.

    It is always a good idea to apply Occam`s Razor to everything you see and read, especially on the internet, radio and TV, and question the fundamental premise first. Instead of blindly repeating the same crap I heard as fact, I used my brain, did some HOMEWORK and learned something new. Anyone repeating this octopus BS should have done the same.
