    For writing and stuff, I write lots of crazy stuff. Don't expect it to be good, likely it won't be. Also, gramar and spelling mistakes everywhere.

    Here's the first one, you'll laugh so hard you'll snort water squid babies from your nose. Note that you probably won't and it's supposed to be something detailing details on detailed squids. Detail.

    Squid seem to be one of the most remarkable creatures in the Minecraft Overworld.

    On Squid Ink
    Squids naturally produce ink, a dark substance. However, we currently don't know of any predators of the squid, so it is unknown why they would actually even need this, unless it was to attract potential mates, but as squids tend to mass-congregate together it could be that, whichever squid can make the most ink is the the top squid.
    Another very important idea is that squids use this fluid to dye themselves so they can hide from predators.

    You know when you scoop up water in a bucket and sometimes squids just "pop" up in the freaking water? What if they aren't just appearing. The ink could be very small versions of squids, which will eventually hit a growth period and turn into a regular squid, restarting the process. They would emit these in sacs, which would be stored and likely thrown up through the mouth, and wash around until it pops on something, releasing the microscopic squiddies. This means you are dying your leather with the children of a squid. You are literally Hitler, so can you not? (This is my personal favorite theory)

    On Squid Resilience
    Squids are a very resilient breed, they are also capable of living in salt, brackish, and fresh water, assuming there is a distinction in Minecraft.
    The tentacled critters can live in every currently known biome. The arctic? Yes. The jungle? If there is water, yes.
    This makes one wonder if the microscopic squids can be carried up with evaporated water and rained down into pools of water, constantly restarting the cycle.
    Squids can be killed through brunt force, as well as sharp objects.

    On Squid Intelligence
    Squids are attracted to light, this indicates some form of curiosity
    .
    They will disappear when you want them to be near you, this seems to be some sort of survival technique. It is unknown if they read your mind or how it happens. You will rarely see a squid when you want one.
    Squids also float to the surface sometimes and die off. This could be suicide which would mean they are somewhat self-aware, or it is a mechanism for over population.

    On Squid Diet
    Squids have a great deal of teeth in their mouth. These are not particularly specialized, but squids likely consume fish, any underwater plant life is likely as well. Due to the fact fish are the only other known creature that lives in water, this is the most likely food source.
    Some claim that due to the teeth, tentacles, and size, a squid could at least consume a chicken, if not a pig or a sheep. It is highly unlikely it could consume a cow.

    Common Ancestor
    It is often claimed that Testificates evolved from squids. This is very unlikely, but it is much more likely that they share common ancestor.
    Another claim is that Enderman are evolved from Testificates, although some believe that they were squids warped by the End into hating water, or not wanting to ever remember their old selves.
    At any rate, it is good that squids cannot exist on land for long periods of time, and that they occasionally, and accidentally, suffocate from not being on land.

    Overall
    Overall, squids are some of the most dangerous creatures currently known. If they could survive on land and move around well enough they would be able to viciously eat everything. Luckily, they are mostly passive.

    Mostly.

    Did you snort baby squids out of your nose?

    Since we can use squid babies to teleport... That means endermen are black because they eat lots of squid babies!! :O
    Eat your ink sacks, kids.

    I wrote a short story. If I find it, I'll pop it up in here. :)
