oct means 8 doesn't it like octagon. wtf?
Or probably it's that the calendar was all kinds of fucked up until some time in 1753.
Or something like that.
The eighth month in the old Roman calendar, October retained its name (from the Latin "octo" meaning "eight") after January and February were inserted into the calendar that had originally been created by the Romans.
they added february and june to space it out a bit and people didn't want to change the name of october as they were attached to it
I don't really know which two were added later
but she didn't have time to chat much
I find that hard to believe.
ask kitchmo. he saw me in action with a homeless lady.
that was brilliant.
something like, why did 4 5 6?
but a freak accident fused the robot attachements to him and drove him made.
The four extra limbs coupled with his organic arms and legs meaning that he now had eight limbs.
He adopted the name Dr.Octopus because of the extra limbs, the fact that he was already called Octavius was just a cruel irony.
