    Just rediscovered this old vid from back in my uni days, got me thinking about it again.

    [video]http://www.ted.com/talks/david_gallo_shows_underwater_astonishments.html[/video]

    I've always been massively interested in the deep sea especially, and absolutely love the Blue Planet, as well as the deep sea episode of Planet Earth being my favourite.

    Anyone else?

    the extreme deep sea which has been uncharted is really interesting, especially because of the life which has adapted to live there cause of the pressure, and the giant squid and whatnot

    i like the sea, i would never like to live to far from it, i like the sound and being able to look out at nothing, being on the edge of land.
    i like the deep sea because it is like another world altogether with mad creatures of the deep and bizzarre off-world looking scenery.
    but i am also slightyl scared of the sea, she can be a cruel mistress, and id hate to drown at sea, and i dont like it when ur swimming in the sea and u dont know what could be beneath you, how how deep it goes, and u just floating along on the surface, freeks me out.

    Blue Planet is arguably the best Natural History series ever made, Planet Earth was fucking awesome though too...

    I can watch shit like that allday long!

    Attenborough needs to come back with the next ting soon, he really is an artical dappa, I would like to shake his hand & discuss stories over a Cream Scones with Jam.

    The Deep Sea Creatures episode of Blue Planet is the best natural history programme I have ever seen.

    The 24 foot long six gilled shark was something else then there were all of the bio-luminescent creatures that live deep enough to crush a car into a bowling ball.

    no i agree, there is something scary about the deep. enormous things under water. the idea of an underwater city or an underwater monolith.
    i know quite a few girls that i strongly suspect are guilty of worshipping dagon the sea demon. its a common practice in the french coastal areas i believe.

    i find the most disturbing part of your sig that the pixie boy has female hips. and is almost devoid of any sexual development. but because its a drawing its not sadistic and pedo.
