2. But in reality they have no real power not given to them by people.
And many of them are good people also, so it is not that they should be hated or disliked, just that they should think on modest incomes and societal good. But that is just my opinion.

However one Narwhal can take care of a squid, (see the video). So if they are living off of other peoples work without a degree of caring I don't think it would be good for them. Unless that is what society wanted, since it is the choice of society how things work.

4. Personally, I'd liken Goldman Sachs more to a 'headcrab' from the video game, "Half-Life".
"A headcrab is a fictional alien parasitoid found in the Half-Life video game series created by Valve Software. They are the most numerous and arguably most iconic aliens in the series. They are also sometimes referred to as "headhumpers" by Barney Calhoun and some of the citizens in the game."

This variant specifically:

"The poison headcrab (also known as the black headcrab or venom headcrab) is slightly larger than its counterparts with dark sage green color skin (sometimes with a wet shine, attributable to a lighting problem with Valve's Source engine) and thick hairs on the joints of its inward bending legs."

More details here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headcrab#Variants

19. The one's with the pyramids are from the Dagon branch of the family, according to
H.P. Lovecraft.

Remember the big critter that comes up from The Deep and swallows the heroine? The lure was a golden pyramid.

26. Don't ever watch that (made for TV) movie; it's a pretty depressing environmental disaster with what
I take is the usual weird Lovecraftian twist at the end.
