5) Forbidden Depths - Part 2 Using sophisticated underwater technology U.S. and Cuban scientists explore the rich but relatively unknown waters off the coast of Cuba. With underwater photographer Al Giddings and the submersible from Discovery Channel's landmark voyage to Galapagos, this rich underwater site is explored the first time.The scientists on board include Shirley Pomponi, a sponge expert; Tammy Frank, who studies shrimp-like species to understand adaptability; and Edie Vidder, a bioluminescence expert. The expedition identifies species new to the region and new to science.
I am watching this right now. Nothing good happens where WE can't survive. But then, crap happens where we live too but at least here we can BREATH. There are not lifeforms living that are out to do me harm. At least up here I am not ACTIVELY hunted. Damn, of course there are. Okay, it's the breathing. NOW there is footage of cephalopods on LAND. Let that one rattle around your holiday damaged brain for a second. Good lord, Discovery Channel.
Educate yourselves. Long live the fighters.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
