The Way It Is 

Octopuses from outer space

If an alien race of levitating flesh-eating octopuses invaded Earth from outer space and commenced devouring every man, women and child, what group of people would last the longest and why? This question was put to Tanya Krimgold, an English student at the University of Virginia, and her friend Chantelle Danes who works in advertising for Basic Research.

Who ever had salt would last the longest—the salt hoarders of course. And restaurateurs—they have lots of salt. And anywhere that it snows, because they have to put lots of salt on their driveways. And, of course, people who live by the sea. Iowa would most definitely go down. The salt would make the octopus suction cups cringe.
