Apologies for my error. "Unleash the kraken" is of course a figurative, celebratory imperative not to be taken as an indication of power over the fate of the kraken. This nuance was lost in my sentence. What i meant, and should have written, was: "That, of course, doesn't mean we're exempt from the humbling omen of the kraken - why would it? I don't know what i'm talking about anymore".
