Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Personally I'd put my money on the Squid. Have you ever seen Squid trying to figure out puzzles (like how to get through/past obstacles in order to eat)? Have you ever seen people in mazes?
Squid are incredibly clever, and quite resourceful creatures. People tend to be very forgetful or repetitive - they will keep trying the same part of the maze time and time again, like they have either forgotton that they've already been there or like they think it may have changed since their last visit .
actually this does sound like a simpsons episode.... in that case, i'd go with the squid.
EWWW! Plain disgusting! The first, last and ONLY time i have eaten squid it almost made me puke! Blaghh! Chewy white-purpleish rubber tasting flesh thing...Oh sick...Although my money is on the squid to win, it's not on the squid to eat. I'd rather eat a human... LOL Hmm, too much info again...

Yeah, but was it Calamari a la romana (i.e. battered)? It's just gorgeous! Now, pig's trotters - they're disgusting! They have a nice pork-like taste, but they're just all slimy and...[shivers]erghor, they're just horrible[/shivers].
well, I guess that you could not tell the squid thats its in a maze and to get out, but a human would presumably have this advantage. I go for the human.
Plus as a human got irritated by being stuck in a maze it would look for ways to break out.
Hmm, perhaps not in the spirit of the question but anyway...
someone once said "if you can't win, change the rules"
Distribution: Whatever I feel like at the time I install.
I would have to go with the the squid over the ave human. However mazes are rather easy to get out of. It make take a little longer this way but if you put your hand on the right wall and follow it you will eventually get out. Therefore some humans knowing that could make it out fairly quickly. The only way to make a squid get out would be to starve it some and the place food at the exit of the maze.
Well I myself couldn't tell you who would win. It depends, say you put the human in the water one and the squid in the non water one, then I'm pretty sure the human would win. But who really can tell? Right? Put you theory to test sometime!
I think someone is confusing a squid with an octopus. There has been some work on the intelligence of the octopus but I haven't seen anything on squid intelligence. The octopus is probably the smartest invertebrate but I don't think it is a genius. I would bet on the person.
