Insane in the Chromatophores by Simon Abrams

And here is another beautiful example of the intersection of two topics that are right up my alley: science and hip-hop. The nerds over at Backyard Brains hooked up a squid to an iPod and stimulated its chromatophores (pigmented cells) with some Cypress Hill, and the results are beautiful.

I thought it very considerate that they played the censored version of the song, perhaps out of concern for the squid's delicate sensibilities.
