There are many blind people who can swim perfectly well, and would enjoy swimming around independently in the open sea, but obviously this presents many hazards, but only for those who don't yet have the use of a Swimming Eye Squid.

Some squid have an extremely well developed single eye, with extraordinary vision, matched by an intelligence that makes them the perfect underwater assistant for people with limited or no vision.

Following an appropriate period of training, Swimming Eye Squid will become the best underwater friend for a suitable blind person. Wearing an appropriate harness, they will gently lead their companion on a pleasurable aquatic adventure in total safety.

Under development: Seeing Eye Giraffe for ridiculously tall blind people.

       If they’re that intelligent, they should be able to gain entry into countries, to get rich, as long as they don’t bring their less intelligent relatives, or sick ones.

       Are you trying to say that Trump is secretly a squid, sporting a fake extra eye to make him resemble a human being?... I can believe it. It's totally credible and quite obvious actually, only punctured by the intelligence bit.

       So what's wrong with their other eye?

       The other eye is very basic and kept for reading the F.T. (see link)
