Fun fact of the week – “Octopuses are almost entirely antisocial, except when they’re mating, and scientists who study them have to house them separately so they don’t kill or eat each other. However, octopuses given the drug known as MDMA (or ecstasy, E, Molly or a number of other slang terms) wanted to spend more time close to other octopuses and even hugged them.”
