    Looks pretty freaky in that video. Very cool.

    Article is reasonably interesting too.

    Awesome.

    Now salt it up and put it on our plates. Humans will eat anything, and that looks big enough to feed 1000 people.


    And I got a creepy feeling when I saw that this video was made by Shell Oil. I just imagined someone saying, "Look whose habitat we're harming!"

    Makes you wonder what else is down there that we haven't found yet. That is a lot of ocean to go through.

    The only thing I hate about these Carriers is the fact you can't kill them. I've even pummeled one with 2 LAARKs and 3 Bullseye Tags - and the keep on truckin! :mad:

    And it was discovered, of all things, by an oil company. They should name her Shelly.
