Video From A GoPro Being Lowered Down A Well

December 27, 2017


This is a video from Youtuber bethyalamode, who lowered a GoPro down her home's new well after the driller informed her there were limestone caves at a depth of 110-feet. Personally, I would have just nodded with a "How 'bout that?" and told him I'd put a check in the mail first thing next week, but that's just me and I'd have no intention of actually putting that check in the mail.

Our well drilling report from Barney Moravec mentioned that there were caves in the limestone at 110′. What could that possibly mean? We sent down a GoPro to find out.

Admittedly, it is kind of mesmerizing to watch, but I couldn't let myself fully enjoy it because I couldn't stop thinking-- "About baby Jessica?" OMG, you too?! And then you had to pretend like you'd been shrunk and were taking a trip through somebody's colon so you didn't feel so sad?! "That's where you lost me." Dammit, that's exactly where I was hoping to find you. We really were *this close* to being soul mates.

Keep going for the video while I watch it again and pretend I'm flying through an asteroid with Han Solo.

Thanks to Allyson S, who agrees that GoPro isn't going to bring much water up. Next time try a bucket.

    Reminded me of an H.P. Lovecraft story I read a while back where a guy goes down a shaft behind this house and finds some evil shit. Then he climbs back out.

    Looks like an Exogorth's colonoscopy.

    Somebody need to dub this with the Doctor Who theme music playing.

    I could add sinkhole to tsunami and Fukushima as my biggest fears.

  • For some reason it made me think of this...

    I was thinking more like the wormholes from Stargate SG-1...

    I guess when I think of "limestone cave" I think of "batcave," not "limestone cubby." Mildly disappointing video, but still neat.

    Jesus. I had no idea wells typically went that deep.

  • Bling Nye you know.

    Speaking of Jesus, he was the first to know well.
