The deep dark thread
Dump your sea monsters.
What is this exactly? Google's giving me lots of buzzfeed tier articles but I wonder if anyone knows what that actually is?
The Bobbit worm.
Not 'deep' sea and they're pretty small. But I think they're pretty freaky.
The deep ocean may be one of Earth's greatest mysteries, we know absolutely nothing about something that we are surrounded by. Also perhaps the most famous of cryptids lie in the sea as well as many unsolved cases and phenomenons. You learn that there is more to the paranormal world than skinwalkers and ghosts. Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction.
Learn to spell before you kek at anyone.
These things are fucking terrifying, they also get like 3 meters long. And the bristles on their sides have neurotoxins that destroy nerves and leave permanent numbness or pain. They are also able to chew through coral and are near impossible to kill.
Kinda curious how your average medieval sea monster looks like a Pokemon compared to the abyssal creatures that lurk in our oceans.
just the thought of being lost in the sea, not knowing what the fuck lies beneath me is just terrifying.
>tfw you forget what is up and what is down when you're underwater
I'm a diver so I see sting rays and shit all the time and have close encounters constantly. To me there's no worse feeling than when you are in only 2 meter deep water but the sea weed is growing right up to your face and the visibility is 30 center meters. You literally have no idea what's in front of you and you have no idea what's below you. I just swim through that area with my knife drawn and as quick as possible.
I've read somewhere that they'll turn up in aquariums because people will get beach sand that can have Bobbit worm eggs in it. (Or something like that) imagine having a saltwater aquarium with some lion fish or something and all of a sudden a goddamn Bobbit worm shoots up.
That'd scare the crap outta me tbqhwy.
>not knowing that /x/ is /b/ 1.something since forever ago, with actual genuine paranormal discussion nonexistent
Most the the faggots around here are underage, don't expect quality posting from them. I mean most of the shit in this thread is pretty tame to be honest.
>.....Aaaand that's why I love the mountains
Cthulhu turns over, cold because his nightmarish blanket has slipped off during his eternal slumber. He shifts, reaching for it, his abominative hand causes multiple earthquakes. Finally he grasps his covering, and does that thing when you roll over while holding the edge of the blanket so you wrap yourself in it. The tides are abnormal this day. The blanket has become cold, spending an unknowable time next to the bed. Stirring, the world waits with baited breath; is this the day he wakes and we end? Cthulhu farts into his blanket burrito, his inner terror becoming his dutch oven. His maw wraps into a smirk.
The bloop was recorded at the same moment.
I wish i knew too. There are some pictures floating around of the animal. They should make it famous, it's so ugly that it's getting cute.
This thread is cool but the new mods are way too retarded with their excessive and unnecessary thread pruning.
MODS JUST BECAUSE YOU DO NOT PERSONALLY LIKE A TOPIC DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN PRUNE IT
This site man. Mods went from bad to worse. Its like 7chan mods or 420chan tier mods. Its lame.
Deep sea threads are one of the core essentials of /x/.
I love the clear blue skies.
I love the whole world.
To me the Atolla jellyfish is the most beautiful yet simultaneously frightening deep sea creature.
Fun Fact: They don't really have any defenses of their own, but they have one clever evolutionary trait. When they're attacked they begin flashing a deep blue color, which will often attract a larger predator to come eat the ones attacking them.
>this creepy motherfucker summons even creepier motherfuckers to do its bidding
FUCK A YOU WHALE
AND FUCK A YOU DOLPHIN!
That can't possibly work on a regular basis - there always has to be something else nearby. It's like thinking you're safe because you think your neighborhood has a cop on every corner...
It's basically impossible with our limited atmosphere, giant shit can exist but likely nothing that heavy/dense. something large and gellatenious like a large squid or something is a lot more probable, not trying to rain on your parade but yea, there IS however a ocean which could produce that kind of life, its one of the recent planets (its either HD or Kepler (insert random ass number NASA gives to shit).
Basically they think the ocean extends right down to it's core, and it's in the "habitable" zone.
kek i think it's the same eel at the beginning of the video. Maybe it's still alive since they live up to 30 yrs ;-;
no idea what the fuck's going on in this webm
There are small crustaceans (copepods iirc) who have the ability to create bioluminescent glowing clouds when threatened to distract predators (kinda like squids use ink clouds).
Guess this fish tried to eat one of those fuckers and it got its ass lighted up.
imagine if that thing's mouth was 12 feet wide
Does anyone remember a TV show from way back in the mid 2000s about a kid that finds a sea creature or something, and he keeps it in his backyard pool I think, and in one episode a gigantic sea monster swallows a yacht?
It looked kinda similar to
Except it was an overhead shot if I remember right
I don't think its lost media because it was a popular show back then. I just don't remember the name of it.
It was 2006 ish. It had a lot of hype. I THINK there was a scene where this kid had the sea creature in his pool and it grew really huge. I wish I could remember what it was.
All I remember was that and the gigantic sea monster that swallowed a yacht.
For some freaky reason nature decided that deep sea creatures get bigger the less food there is
but yeah i agree that a creature that big is most likely impossible
>ofw all of the sudden an mountain in the atlantic ridge just starts floating of
>ofw it wasent a mountain at all
The sea is so fucking deep that it's pretty much endless too.
So interested in looking for life in other planets when we still have no idea what kind of shits live on our own planet.
Holy fucking mother of all my nightmares
long arm squid. pic related, its the one that's in that video
I I have to imagine how deep the water would have to be for that whole thing to fit there.
I mean, there's a dock right there, so it would also have to be pretty deep pretty quickly for it to not be noticed enough that people will boat over it.
how much would that thing have to eat to stay that size?
Look at it's fins, and the coils.
Jesus christ it would be terrifying if it were real but the environment of this one kinda kills it for me.
I wish I had never noticed land and assumed this was batshit middle of the ocean will all sort of gigantic fucks for it to eat.
Imagine the dick that thing would have if it did.
There is something related to that, being the sarcastic fringehead.
Relax anon, breathe, and remember that giant jellyfish exist
Speaking of the "ningen" sea monster, I find this picture to be freakier than all the versions that depict the creature to look like Ripjaws from Ben 10 or something.
This picture right here looks like some sort of freaky claymation thing, walking around crudely and unnaturally in the arctic, hitting borderline uncanny valley because of it moving like a poorly made claymation character.
I think pic related is why I'm afraid of all this shit
not to forget the oversized mosasaurus from jurassic world
i was kinda scared cause the thing behind it looked like it could be a bigger creature but i looked down and realized i shouldnt be scared cause if the super big lovecraftian underwater god monster had corn dog legs it would be hilarious
Not sure how deep this sea is but I thought you would like it.
They rarely come to the surface.
https://youtu.be/TqCumqMWJok this video makes me pretty anxious somehow. i know it's super shitty and fake looking, but falling in to the water and seeing that gaudy piece of crap staring out just sounds like hell to me.
they're working on the technology, i believe. but then there are other issues like keeping a steady supply of food and clean water. i'd imagine fishing is a different game at high pressure, plus there's the question of allocating power throughout the sub and whatnot depending on where your power's coming from and how you generate it.
yeah exactly. even if it worked i think the looming possibility of pressure failure would contribute to your inevitable cabin fever. you're just going about your business when all of a sudden: https://youtu.be/AMHwri8TtNE
pic semi related.
This thread is gradually coming to an end.
Will we start a new one? Or will we just let it slip into abyss, not to be found ever again? Think of all these brave anons that will disperse as a result. You are unlikely to ever meet them for the second time. Do you want it?
Maybe one day in future, someone will invent a technology to prevent thread telomere shortening and to allow threads to be populated forever by the same trusty old anons.
they wrote a book about that, it's called "i have no mouth and i must scream"
Thank you. This makes me feel much better.
1. I converted it for you. I miss the original audio though, it was good.
2. There are no hostile environments, there's only bad engineering ;^).
Wasn't this a quote about space? Or was it "In space, nobody can hear you scream"?
It's my first time in /x/. My quest for this picture brought me here: https://www.google.com/images?q="AJJ+LMAU"

Quality = gore? I thought not.
