Paul the Octopus Predict Spain to beat Germany in World Cup semifinal

Which team do you support in this South Africa World Cup Semi Final? Germany or Spain? Paul the famous Octopus picked Spain!

Paul the Octopus Predict Spain to beat Germany in World Cup semifinal

This time there is video evidence to prove it, so despite these fake photographs or rumor of Paul picking the mollusk from the box with the Spanish flag on it, this time he has done it for real. His prediction: Spain will advance to the final of the 2010 World Cup and Germany will be left behind.

I was wondering will this be possible? Maybe there’s something in the box that attract Paul? What’s the possible reason? Or is the box position? So let’s see whether the prediction is correct or not this time.

Warning! Do not 100% trust this octopus and you think his prediction will be true and go gamble all out then you will be in trouble! My advise is, do not gamble.

Haha see.. Paul also like Malaysia. Malaysia sure win! (P/S: It was photochopped!)

Okay there’s video to prove that Paul the Octopus really pick Spain! No joke! But how true is it tomorrow we will know =)

(CNN) — German football fans should brace themselves for disappointment in Wednesday’s World Cup semifinal against Spain, according to the latest prediction of an octopus with a knack for picking winners.

Paul the octopus, a psychic cephalopod at Sea Life in Oberhausen, western Germany, has become a World Cup phenomenon after correctly predicting the victors in all five of Germany’s matches so far and Tuesday’s ceremony was carried live on German television.

Sea Life staff help Paul make his prediction by lowering two boxes of food into his tank, one carrying a German flag and the other bearing that of their opponents. The case he opens first is adjudged to be his predicted winner.

The octopus correctly picked that Joachim Low’s side would beat Ghana and Australia in the group stages, but also outwitted most professional pundits by predicting Germany’s shock 1-0 defeat by Serbia.

In the knockout stages it tipped Germany to beat both England and Argentina, but it drew cries of despair from assembled watchers Tuesday when, after initially lingering over the box for the German flag, it plumped for the Spanish flag instead.

But in case you’re thinking of staking your life savings on Paul’s mystic abilities, be warned: the octopus only managed an 80 percent success rate in predicting Germany’s results at the 2008 European Championships — and failed to foresee Spain’s 1-0 win over Germany in the final.
