  1. That is completely awesome. Please actually enter that, complete with doctored photo, because the photo makes it.

    In fact, it just might make my day if you made that photo your desktop or something similar (though there would be no way of actually seeing it as a desktop unless another photo was taken…hmm…I might even send a SBSP stuffy for placement next to said computer)

    Thanks for taking the suggestion!

  2. Now that’s proper deep ocean exploration equipment. And it surely would keep the Deep Sea Serpents from attacking the ROV.

    Maybe SBSP’s left arm could be turned into a little manipulator arm? No? :(
