    This is awesome!
    This came from a Rig Manager for Global Marine Drilling
    in St. Johns, Newfoundland.
    They actually have to divert the path of these things
    away from the rig by towing them with ships!
    Anyway, in this particular case the water was calm and
    the sun was almost directly overhead
    so that the diver was able to get into the water
    and click this pic. Clear water huh?!
    They estimated the weight at 300,000,000 tons.

  6. Yeah I guess the water could never be quite that clear...but it definitely gives us a sense of the true meaning of "The Tip of The Iceberg"! I think it's awesome nevertheless

    I think you're forgiven for finding that at Snopes (which I also love). Unfortunately, a friend of mine isn't speaking to me anymore since I informed her that an 'urban legend' she'd e-mailed out to nearly 100 of her "closest friends" was a hoax that'd been circulating since 1999!!

    (Gee, maybe it was cuz I pressed REPLY ALL!! D'ja think?!?! Sheesh - Some people just have NO sense of HUMOUR!!!) :hysterica

    I'll bet you that's the baby "Iceberg" that sunk the Titanic. Now's your chance Leonardo DiCaprio, take your revenge.

    *edit* sorry I'm having a bit of a sugar rush this afternoon.
