    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 →

    This is a series of shots from underwater photographer Todd Bretl of glowing Bobtail Squids (Sepiola atlantica) captured in their natural habitat. What is their natural habitat? Apparently pure blackness. Per Wikipedia: Bobtail squid have a symbiotic relationship with biolu... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Slow-Mo Guys firing handguns underwater and capturing it all on film to play back 1,000x slower than real life. You've probably already seen videos like this before though, so just give it a quick watch, then we can all complain about how James Bond movi... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to watch a diver knock over a stack of rocks with an air bubble ring? Well you are IN LUCK, because that's exactly what this is. Unfortunately, when reached for comment Ariel was devastated to find out someone knocked over her art installation. Now might not be th... / 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 →

    This is a couple seconds of that giant squid video that's supposed to come out later this month. This clip was aired on some morning news program, where Miami correspondent Doug Herpaderp had this to say: "Of course, after yesterday's news of the baby giant squid and this one,... / Continue →

    Using a manned submersible, a group of scientists recently captured footage of a nearly 60-foot long giant squid in its natural habitat for the first time. The video is going to be shown on the Discovery channel January 27th and I'm already predicting it will be the most watch... / Continue →

    This is a video (actually just audio) of NOC the beluga whale vocalizing with English-like speech patterns. Apparently he talked like this for all his youth, then abandoned it when he matured. What was he trying to tell us? Does he know the location of Atlantis? Is he frien... / Continue →

    This is a picture of gun-lover Andrew Tuohy firing a .45 Kimber 1911 underwater in his pool. Presumably during adult swim. Want to see VIDEO of Andrew firing a .40 Glock 22 underwater? Hit the jump to watch. Andrew said the shock from the gun firing was like getting kicked ... / 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 →

    Seen here proving she's not just limited to taking long ramps instead of the stairs, wheelchairer Sue Austin cruises around in the ocean on her modified wheelchair. No word how many mermen fell in love with her, but I suspect at least one plus a tuna. With a pair of underwate... / Continue →

    Because it's Friday and my brain checked out yesterday (plus two books from the library and never returned them!), this is a video of a shark stealing an underwater photographer's camera in the Bahamas. Personally, I would have punched that shark in the nose. Of course, it lo... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for waterproof watches that envisions an underwater bar where everybody wears diving helmets and carries around drinks with super-long straws so they can snake them up to their lips. What fun! Just kidding, what watered-down drinks. Get it? WATERED down... / Continue →

    This is the Discus Hotel, a hotel slated for construction in Dubai that will feature 21 underwater suites 30-meters (~100-feet) beneath the ocean's surface. It was designed for people who've always dreamed of having sex while sea turtles watch. Water Discus Hotels comprise ... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video from the BBC of a brinicle doing its thing. A brinicle is formed when brine (extra salty water -- both denser and colder than the sea water around it) makes its way through the ice above and falls to the ocean floor, creating a frozen hollow "sheath"... / Continue →

    You ever been wandering through the desert, so dehydrated you've considered drinking your own urine until you actually pee and it looks like motor oil? Me neither. But if we had, one of us may have seen a mirage. A beautiful pond of fresh water, just beckoning you to frolic ... / Continue →

    This is a public aquarium made entirely out of ice and frozen fish in (SURPRISE!) Japan. Neat idea, but I can see the exact same thing walking through the frozen food isle of the Korean market down the street. All kinda shit be starin' at ya! The Kori no Suizokukan, or the "... / Continue →

    Bioshock's Rapture: hands down one of my favorite video game environments to date. "Do you hold hands and kiss a lot?" Dammit -- as in, 'to this point in time', not to wear my letter jacket, moron. This is an impressive build of the underwater city (complete with crashed pla... / Continue →

    What I did there: I hope at least some of you can appreciate it. Scientists, in their unending quest to cure cancer determine if the side-show participants at Sea World are plotting a mutiny, are hard at work developing a translator capable of deciphering dolphin-ese. Geez, y... / Continue →

    Nice shorts. You know what the best part about playing through 'Bioshock 2' was? Being able to escape from my mundane existence for a couple hours a day and pretend I was part of something greater. "Whoa broski -- how about a little warning before opening such a big box of f... / Continue →
