Cis bedebah ko Paul the Octapus

Siapa Paul the Octapus ni?
oh die bukan manusia ye, die adalah seekor sotong kurita yang sangat bedebah! wakakaka
mmg tanak caye aa kat dia smlm..[sbb die pernah gak tersalah predict masa thn 2008 dulu]..
tp skalik haa amik! 2010 ni semuanye benar belaka! tere seh ko ni Paul!

Paul the Octopus is a common octapus who lives in the Sea Life public aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany. Paul, who is sometimes called a "psychic octopus" or "oracle octopus," is famous for his ability to correctly predict the winner of matches in which the German national soccer team is playing, in 9 cases out of 10

How it works?
Paul is able to make his predictions courtesy of Oliver Walenciak and his staff. Two clear plastic boxes containing food (usually oyster) are lowered down into the aquarium's tank. The boxes have the flags of two countries attached to them, one of Germany, and one of their next opponent. The container selected by the hungry octopus is assumed to be the predicted winner.

The History
Paul was born in 2008 in England. According to entertainment director Daniel Fey, Paul showed his intelligence early on: "There was something about the way he looked at our visitors when they came close to the tank. It was so unusual, so we tried to find out what his special talents were." The first time Paul was tried was during UEFA Euro 2008. He was correct in 80% of the predictions he made, but he was wrong in his prediction of the winner of the final match, which was Germany versus Spain. Paul predicted Germany's win, but the actual winner was Spain.

Paul's Predictions for 2010 FIFA World Cup
Paul was able to predict the winners of all six matches that the German team has played so far in the 2010 FIFA World Cup. For 2010 FIFA World Cup Group D, in which the German team played, he predicted Germany's win over Ghana, as well as their win over Austalia. He upset German fans when he correctly predicted Germany's loss to Serbia. In the 2010 FIFA World Cup knockout stage, Paul predicted Germany's win over England in the round 16, and over Argentina in the quarter finals. For his last prediction, Paul received death threats. Angry Argentinian fans blamed him for their team's major loss of 0 to 4, and threatened to eat him to avenge his prediction.His keeper Oliver Walenciak is sure that the octopus is safe in his aquarium tank:

“There are always people who want to eat our octopus but he is not shy and we are here to protect him as well. He will survive.”

Paul also made a correct prediction for the semi finals when he chose the box with Spain's flag. Some German supporters hoped that Paul would get it wrong because of his incorrect prediction of the Germany versus Spain match in the UEFA Euro 2008, but this time they were in for a disappointment.
