What Lurks Below?

[rebelmouse-image 18351450 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

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.

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?

Potterdom

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

Maybe Jason Momoa is There

The Gyarados James got rid of.

Get Your Jaeger

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

And a label that says "MADE IN CHINA".

There is so much to learn in life.

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

Yeah, not possible.

Knowledge is power and sometimes it's a nightmare.

Don't we have enough to keep us up at night?

Damn curiosity.

Well let's do some learning.

Redditor RedBoyFromNewy wanted to shed some light on creepy issues we need to be discussing. They asked:

"What’s a disturbing fact that not a lot of people know of?"

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
