What Lurks Below?

Oceans cover 71% of the Earth's surface. That means oceans contain 99% of the living space on the entire planet. So far, humans have only explored about 20% of that vast realm. Who knows what lurks in the other 80%?

Reddit user Barazway asked people to imagine the answer to that exact question.

Here are the creative responses.

What Escapes Us

You know when someone is standing nearby you can sense their presence bc of a change in pressure? Well imagine you're living in a super high pressure environment where anything is hardly around and a submarine is coming in the distance. Doesn't it make sense that anything with a lateral line that notices a change in pressure would swim away? Imagine the stuff that's out there that we haven't seen bc they noticed we were coming from a mile away and escaped!

Not So Great White

Megalodon, I hope.

Washer Blackhole

Hopefully most of my missing socks, it's the only logical explanation.

Horrors

Horrible horrible creatures that would make me squeal like a 4 year old girl.

Amazing Things

I really hope there are lots more amazing things down there.

We already found creatures that light up like a disco, creatures that are actually an entire colony of smaller creatures, swimming unicorns and immortal beings.

I don't think we can even dream of what else might be.

Yummy

Jason Momoa

Lion Hunters

Tuna that have learned to hunt lions via a breathing apparatus made from kelp.

Ichthyosaurs

Creatures we thought were extinct. We have already found some fish we thought died off swimming around at normal depths in the Indian Ocean. There's probably a few sea creatures we think are dead but are not.

Eight Legged Freaks

A society of highly-intelligent octopuses. Octopi? OCTOPODES?

Potterdom

Mermaids. But they don't look like how we think.

Maybe Jason Momoa is There

Atlantis.

Like Gojira?

Super Behemoths capable of eating whole ships and surviving nuclear blasts.

What Really Happened to Leon Trotsky

Sea communists.

I Choose You!

The Gyarados James got rid of.

Get Your Jaeger

Kaiju, obviously.

Little Green Men

Man it would be sick if there was a crashed ancient spaceship down there.

Not the One From The Monkees

Oh, just a few lost nuclear weapons, plenty of cargo containers, Davey Jones....

Bring Your Own Butter

Lobsters apparently don't die from old age, they just get bigger. So an absolutely massive lobster.

Hello Darkness

Just this.

Great Old Ones

Cthulhu.

Just all of it - it's all Cthulhu.

Reset

A button that says 'Restore the earth's factory settings'.

And a label that says "MADE IN CHINA".

Any engaged couple looks forward to the big day when after months of planning, they get to tie the knot and declare their love in front of family and friends.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
