I wonder if there's another lake at the bottom of the methane one.
Those things from Surface came from a tv executive coke party that went on two days too long.

My aunt (a high-up in the Coast Guard, has worked with Cousteau, etc etc etc) told me about this maybe seven years ago. Thinking about it pretty consistently blows my mind.
|Rabid Vegan - 2007-09-13 |
I've heard about it before, but never seen it on film. Incredible.
|Stopheles - 2007-09-13 |
More fun to consider: there are shrimp and mussels living in the methane pool. Did they adapt to live in methane, or did they develop in the methane parallel to the mussels and shrimps who developed in saltwater?
Open water scares the hell out of me, but the bottom of the ocean absolutely fascinates me.

It's not a methane lake, it's a lake of super-salinated water. Methane bubbles up through it from the rocks below as per usual. Plus, my cat's breath smells like cat food.

Maybe it's just my imagination and paranoia, but I swear to God I'm seeing something move under the surface of that lake.

Water dissolving...and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!

I wonder if BP or Exxon has plans to develop the methane field and fuck that thing up.
Highly unlikely, as there are no neighbouring villages or rural communities to poison.

Hey, it's Pierce Brosnan!
Nice lake, too.

THERE IS WATER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN
|Urban Space Cowboy - 2007-09-13 |
Whaddya know, there *is* a hole at the bottom of the sea.
|Cap'n Profan!ty - 2007-09-13 |
is that where bloop lives

Another aspect of Spongebob proven to be 100% ACCURATE.
I wonder if this would be the water used in Detro's Weather Dominator...

This is like something off the Deleted Scenes special feature on the Life Aquatic DVD.

how do they know that the worms are over 200 years old?
|Camonk - 2007-09-14 |
I love that dude's enthusiasm. He's like so fuckin' keyed up and it's pretty infectious.
Also, I mean, a lake at the bottom of the ocean, BONG!
|Rodents of Unusual Size - 2007-09-14 |
I get excited about this because there could be other spots like this, with possibly things living inside we haven't discovered yet.
Things that will visit us soon.
Before the end.
|cognitivedissonance - 2007-09-14 |
And to think: he's the first human being to have ever seen it. That's got to be a gratifying experience.
|Corman's Inferno - 2007-09-14 |
200-year-old worms on the shore of a lake in the bottom of the ocean. To steal a quote from James Randi, the wonder is all around us.
|KnowFuture - 2007-09-14 |
For real though...you'd have to think that a discovery like this would be a swift kick in the nads to any perceptions we might have w/r/t how we look at possible conditions for life on other planets.

GODDAMN HERETOFORE UNSEEN SECRET OF THE FUCKING UNIVERSE AND SOME DUMB SHIT DOWNVOTED IT IT WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
|MrTodd - 2007-09-22 |
Man, screw space-travel; let's explore the ocean!
Evidently there's so much we don't know about what's really down there.
|bongoprophet - 2007-10-10 |
for some reason this makes me think of that movie Soylaris

mEE-grain (as in head ache, completely baffled by this the first time I heard it)
Ever notice how the insidious british practice of pronouncing the i in 'either' is slowly supplanting the good ole american silent i version?
Oh yeah meethane lake awsome.
|kennydra - 2008-07-10 |
I want to know what happens when you splash the water.
The universe explodes
