    Link: Memorial To World Cup Predicting Octopus Opens - Rest in peace, Octopus Paul. But really, does this guy deserve a memorial for predicting a few footie matches?

    Yes, he deserves a memorial. I don`t see any of you guys correctly predicting all those soccer games with a brain the size of a peanut.

    Or maybe octopi and other animals in general, are smarter than we choose to give them credit to?

    Nah, of course not, it`s gotta be that he was just one magical phenomenon!

    Thats what i thought but then i remembered billions of people believe in stuff way crazier than an octopus being able to predict outcomes of football matches

    Sure, he was just an octopus and it is impossible that he predicted anything, however it`s stuff like this that makes the world an interesting place to live. Why would anyone disagree with this?

    Wait so he predicted the outcome of the quarter final match with Germany, the semi match with Germany, and the final with Spain. So a 1 in 8 chance of success. That makes him special because?

    Paul predicted that they`d give him a memorial. Of course he deserves the memorial, they probably paid for it with some of the pooloads of money they made using him for publicity, its the least they could do in return.

    he predicted every german game correctly + the finale, and because he couldn`t have any idea about how good a team was it`s somewhat like 50% for the games in the group phase, that`d be 3 games of roughly 50%, actually a little less. then the best 16, quarter finals, semi finals, game for third place and final with each a 50% chance of guessing right. that`s 8 games with, rounded up, a 50% chance for each game. to that`s 0.5^8 = 1/256
    that`s 0.39% probability, and actually even less because of the group games. he`s a f*cking prophet man!
