Recommended Posts

At least 12 species of crabs, prawns and lobsters collected from the deep seas in West Java are new to science. Another 40 are new records for Indonesia. Here are some of these strange and fascinating finds.

They're finding new species all over the world all the time. There's a frog smaller than a dime they found not too long ago. Cuuuuuute! I want one!  :)  Found in 2012 I think, here's a picture of the little thing.

Well, I'm a Pisces,  Not only am I a dreamer but I love the water.  And being underneath it.   When I can go underwater, I am instantly transported into another world, another dimension, another time, It's so different and amazing.  I am a typical Pisces in every sense of the word.   The Fish,  or (fishes?)  

I often play a 12 hr long file on my big computer monitor of nothing but underwater  deep sea footage,  so relaxing, enjoyable, I can leave this world just by sitting and watching that video.

You do understand why your like that? your DNA from past ancestry dictates many things.  IF you look at the real history of whom was here and what has been done to us.

Isn't it a fact that only 8% of the worlds oceans have been explored?  Imagine if we spent a little money exploring the rest instead of sending things into space.  We haven't figured this planet out yet, how in the hell are we attempting to figure out other planets!!!  Makes no sense.

I am guessing that space is going to be used to attack people, so there is not that much interest in the ocean.

Being in water and knowing how to float takes all the stress off the body. Maybe we came from a place where gravity was much less. If only I could breathe under there without scuba gear it would be perfection.
