    This is a video from an unmanned underwater rover being operated by a team aboard the research vessel Nautalis of an unusually large Dumbo octopus (named after their giant 'ears') roaming the ocean's depths in the Caribbean Sea. Researchers estimate the octopus to be almost fi... / Continue →

    Cool helmet, Jacques Cousteau. This is a video demonstrating what happens when you crack an egg underwater (and deep enough for the water pressure to have an effect). I actually posted a better version of the experiment back in 2012, but maybe you weren't reading then. Hell,... / Continue →

    This is a photo from David Littschwager of seawater magnified 25x (showing all the crab larvae and marine worms that are invisible to the naked eye). Just like the title says. So if you thought this post was going to be about superheroes, you are a terrible at interpreting ti... / Continue →

    This is a 10-second video of a great white shark breaching the surface and taking to the air to catch a seal decoy. Highlights of the video include the shark jumping, the woman squealing, and dude's 'BOOYAKASHA' at the end. Also, I'm not sure we should be feeding sharks fake ... / Continue →

    This is the Lover's Deep, a luxury submarine that rich people can rent to have sex in under the sea. It costs $145,000/night per person though and there's a two-night minimum, so unless you're planning on bringing a love doll for the least romantic getaway of all time, the min... / Continue →

    This is an unclassified species of giant jellyfish that recently washed up on an Australian beach. Majestic, isn't it? "It looks like a giant puddle of vomit." IT SURE F***ING DOES. Dr Lisa-ann Gershwin, of Australia's CSIRO government agency, said that scientists had known... / Continue →

    Snorkeling: it's like one step away from drowning. But now there's the Easybreath Snorkeling Mask, a snorkel that lets you breathe through your nose (just like on dry land!) for people who aren't coordinated enough to only breathe through their mouth. Fun fact: one time I was... / Continue →

    Note: Remaining photos are probably NSFW on account of cartoon nipples. This is a small series titled 'Dirtyland' by artist Dillon Boy. It features Disney princesses in the style of naked street art pinups. Honestly, they're all relatively tasteful nudes though. And tastefu... / Continue →

    King crabs: they're delicious. And this lavender one was recently spotted in a shipment to Japan from Russia. Why is it lavender? Is it even lavender? Personally, I think it's more of a cornflower blue, but that's just me and I'm willing to argue about anything. How many l... / Continue →

    Wow, two squid posts in one day -- Poseidon must be losing his shit at his computer right now. This is a video of the giant squid caught by Japanese fisherman Shigenori Goto. Fun fact: giant squid are rarely seen because they live so deep in the ocean and guard Atlantis. G... / Continue →

    Allegedly this is the first time a deep-sea squid has been filmed attacking a fish (and using its beak to drill into the fish's spinal cord -- BRUTAL). I have no idea if that's true or not because 1. I'm not a marine biologist and 2. I didn't Google it. Allegedly it is though... / Continue →

    This is an underwater video taken from the back of a speeding boat of a sailfish trying to bludgeon bait fish with its elongated bill and eat them. He has zero success, probably because all the fish are fake. If I were him I would have jumped into the back of the boat and spe... / Continue →

    This is a trio of sea sponges that have cleverly grown themselves together to look like Cookie Monster. *whispering* Okay I was just informed that apparently they didn't do it on purpose. Or did they? Everybody knows the ocean is a huge fan of Sesame Street. Me: Back me ... / Continue →

    This is a series of jellyfish-inspired pendant lamps designed by Roxy Russell. They range in price from $325 to $425 and are the perfect expensive thing to add a little under-the-sea flair to a room. Take it away, Sebastian! ♫ Under the sea Under the sea Darling it's bett... / Continue →

    At first I didn't understand what the big deal with this thing was, because it's just a wetsuit with membranes stretching from the arms and between the legs, but apparently it's supposed to give the wearer a sense of FLYING UNDERWATER. Cool, but do you know where I really want... / Continue →

    Great, now I'm jealous my oven coil doesn't glow pink. This is the Octopizza Pie made by Instructables user donedirtcheap. It's basically a bunch of tentacle-shaped pepperoni covered breadsticks that you can dip into the main marinara filled body. Man, I don't know about you... / Continue →

    This is the U-boat Worx 'C Explorer 5' (U for underwater, C for sea, 5 for five passenger). It's a $2.5 million luxury submarine WITH AIR CONDITIONING AND LEATHER SEATS. And for you cheapskates trying to save a buck, no, pleather isn't an option. It's being billed as the firs... / Continue →

    I have no clue if this is actually the first underwater bar. I could probably do a Google search to find out, but you can't even believe anything you read on the internet anymore so it would just be a waste of time. To cover my dimply ass I'll just say this: Subsix is ALLEGED... / Continue →

    Because how useful is is a map that doesn't include some explorable underwater reefs (still pretty useful truthfully), Google has begun adding underwater shots to Google Maps, starting with the Great Barrier Reef (links to actual map). I clicked around for awhile hoping to spo... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Stefan Petit spent six-months faithfully recreating some 43 of the in-game posters from Bioshock. These are them. I want them. ALL. Plus a Big Daddy. Or, what the gay community might describe as a 'bear'. "GRRAAAWR!" OMG -- yes, YESSSSSS! This was a ... / Continue →
