True, the oceans are the forgotten frontier.

I wonder how the bed would look if the water were removed?

Deep sea stuff is more exciting to me than space stuff is. I don't know exactly why, but it makes me feel like there's still so many stuff to learn about our own world.

Perhaps because it's more accessible it makes it seem more real to you?

Pssshh... More accessible? Please. It'd be easier to reach Pluto than to get to the true Ocean Floor.

Cyberspace is the Final Frontier. And I know y'all keep talking about the show "Cyberspace" and "reboot", but honestly?

Otherland.

Which they are making a fully sandbox MMO out of.

Dig it.

While it is generally easier to go into outer space than it is into the deep ocean your level of exaggeration is horribly inaccurate. While it is true that we've sent about a dozen people to the moon compared to few that have reached the bottom of the ocean we've still sent exactly 0 people past the moon due largely to issues of radiation exposure.

Further, setting aside the ocean floor it's completely true that it is far easier for the average person to make a submarine or even just go into the ocean than it is to make a rocket ship or get into space.

True, but radiation isn't as bad as being completely crushed into tiny little atoms due to the amount of pressure that far down.

I guess I did exaggerate a bit, but I still think it would be easier to get to the Belt than it would be to explore the bottom of the sea.

Radiation won't be an issue as soon as pharma has developed the radiation/poison/virus curing pill. lol
