The scariest thing anybody's ever said to me

Came today from a neurology attending at work.

"The best time I ever had scuba diving" he said, "was out in the kelp forests off Monterrey. You can find these big bunches of sea hares [large sea slugs with long eyestalks] and they're all copulating, you know, 'cause they're hermaphroditic, and then you grab a great big starfish [here he used the scientific name, which I do not know and do not want to Google], and drop it on 'em, and they're all, like, yanking their various bits back and inking all over the place, trying to get away. It's fun with invertebrates!"
