Let’s make Friday a special occaision here at Deep Sea News. Last Friday we posted a geeky fish video and an online video game, along with the usual photo. Folks were so thankful for the entertainment that our gross national product probably dropped by one millionth of one percent. We should make it a tradition, out of respect for our European friends, if not ourselves.
Whatever happened to Fridays back in the American 70’s, you know, with wall posters of kitty cats hanging from a limb saying “Hang On, Baby Friday’s Coming” rather than foggy mountain vista’s saying “Inspire. Achieve”? Puhhlease. That ain’t Friday. “Get down, get down. Get down, get down…”
This week’s TGIF video comes from Marine geologist Masaaki Kimura who says he has identified the ruins of a city off the coast of Yonaguni Island on the southwestern tip of Japan. The link is here. If you dive, you’ll love it. If you don’t, you’ll wish you did.
Be interested to hear from some geologists and archeologists on this one.
Here’s some excerpts from the article.
“Judging by the design and the disposition of the ruins, the city must have looked just like an ancient Roman city,” said Kimura, a professor at Ryukyu University and the chairman of the non-profit Marine Science and Culture Heritage Research Association.
“I can envisage a triumphal arch-like statue stood on the left side of the Colosseum and a shrine over the hill,” he told Reuters Television.
