underthevastblueseas: Underwater Rivers?
A group of amateur cave explorers discovered a river in Mexico with banks, trees and leaves just like an ordinary river, but with an additional metric shit ton of “WTF,” because they were hovering 25 feet over it in scuba gear when they discovered it.
While underwater water doesn’t seem possible, the “river” is actually a briny mix of salt water and hydrogen sulfide. It’s much more dense than regular salt water, so it sinks to the bottom and forms a distinct separation that acts and flows like a river.
Deep sea lakes look like normal lakes, complete with sandy and rocky shores. Scientist call these lakes “cold seeps,” but they’re a hotbed for life, because apparently waterfront real estate is a hot commodity under water, too. The “rocky” shores are actually made up of hundreds of thousands of mussels. Even weirder, the lakes under the waves have waves of their own.

Ban This Book.
I don’t think I would mind an whole building of and for adult fiction, but that might just be me.
When the price tag comes off a book smoothly:
I finished Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor and Park a few days ago, and I’m still processing it.
It was such a beautiful story with such human characters, and when it ended I nearly cried.
I needed five minutes to process the whole thing. Pretty certain I didn’t breathe throughout my reading of it.
I went and bought her other novel Attachments which will be in my hands this Wednesday. So excited.
Everyone go read Eleanor and Park. Do it.
