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

[rebelmouse-image 18351451 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.


[rebelmouse-image 18351455 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Amazing Things

[rebelmouse-image 18351457 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.


[rebelmouse-image 18351458 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Jason Momoa

Lion Hunters

[rebelmouse-image 18351459 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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


[rebelmouse-image 18351461 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18351462 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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


[rebelmouse-image 18349522 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Maybe Jason Momoa is There

[rebelmouse-image 18351463 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]


Like Gojira?

[rebelmouse-image 18351464 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

What Really Happened to Leon Trotsky

[rebelmouse-image 18351466 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sea communists.

I Choose You!

[rebelmouse-image 18351467 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The Gyarados James got rid of.

Get Your Jaeger

[rebelmouse-image 18351468 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Kaiju, obviously.

Little Green Men

[rebelmouse-image 18351469 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Not the One From The Monkees

[rebelmouse-image 18351470 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Bring Your Own Butter

[rebelmouse-image 18351471 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Hello Darkness

[rebelmouse-image 18351472 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Just this.

Great Old Ones

[rebelmouse-image 18351474 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]


Just all of it - it's all Cthulhu.


[rebelmouse-image 18351475 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

And a label that says "MADE IN CHINA".

The key to any successful relationship is communication.

The ability to be open and receptive to what a significant other has to say, as well as the ability to be able to convey something weighing on one's mind, can be healing.

But depending on the circumstance, some things are better left unsaid.

Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.

Sex is great, but there are more ways than one to accomplish that euphoric feeling without sex.

There are so many small, ordinary aspects of life that can just send a person and we come across them daily.

People need to stop throwing out unwanted advice.

And when it is requested, think before you speak.

People with mental disorders don't need everyone telling them they have a fix like "exercise" or "herbal supplements."
