I challenge you to describe any plausible scenario where you would have spare octopuses.
Nearly every time I have one or more octopuses, I have one or more spare octopuses.

This is the inherent nature of me having any octopuses, since normally I have no use for them.
Who's your octopus guy?

I live in the geographical centre of the North American continent. I don't have an octopus guy, I have to stumble upon them at random.
What, like lying around in the streets of Winnipeg?

Nobody got the joke? Octopus lie on the bottom of Great Slave Lake near Yellowknife all year around, "hibernating."

Strange, I pictured you as someone who would ignore safety just to save a few steps to put the drill on a bench, or even put it on the floor, anything to avoid having crushed nuts on your sundae.

I only ignore safety when it gets in my way. But that's other people's safety, not my own, jeeeeez!

Maybe not anymore, but when I first heard about it the storm was heading to Florida: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/09/ ... 24472.html
...The worst of the storm lashed the northwest Florida and the Alabama coast where up to 150mm of rain fell in a matter of a few hours....
