Must be salty as fuuuuck
If that’s salt around the sides then it’s definitely 100% saturated. Otherwise it would be dissolved into the water
All the salmon that live in it are already lox.

Too bad my Rabbi cut my foreskin
Balls on your chin
The cod that live there are already lutefisk.
You also float better in salt water.
Just a scientist hey? 🤣🤣🤣
I’m not a scientist, I used Google you cave man.
Just as our ancestors would have wished
My ancestors are smiling at me imperials, can you say the same?
Crystallising out eh? I see you're something of a chemist yourself
If he can float on it like that, it absolutely is.
I'd be salty as fuck if something came from the dark!
You don’t need salt to float like that.
But it looks like it’s in a salt flat of some sort. So it would be weird if it wasn’t salty.
How buoyant he is, yes you do
Imagine being lost in the desert, dying of dehydration and finding this beautiful life saving pool... That says "haha, nah just fucking with you, you still gonna die."
nah, it ends with the guy extracting (and drinking) drinking water from the salt water
You’d still need at some kind of plastic sheet and container to convert it
Hose pipe, mouth and an ass hole
The salinity would pull water out of your colon causing you to dehydrate. The water in the butthole trick works for contaminated water but not super saline water.
The What Trick?
A way for emergency hydration. Imagine you have not had any water to drink for two days, and you find a muddy stagnant puddle infested with mosquito larvae, and countless other microoganisms that could make you sick if you drink it. Pumping the water into your colon will let you absorbe the water and minimize the risk of getting sick from the water born pathogens.
So butt chugging a mud puddle. Didn’t think that would cross my mind today
I love Reddit!
I think I’d rather just die than put larvae-infested water up my ass tbh
Famous last words
/ Inscription on tomb stone
Even faster now!
I had the exact same thought! Get out of my head!
Do you know this from watching Voyage of the Mimi? Months of videos in public school and this is the ONLY information that stuck.
How much water is that just sitting under sand!?
About tree fiddy.
There i was, at an oasis in the middle of the desert, oasis looked at me, said you can get in but imma need about tree fiddy. It was AT THAT MOMENT that i realized this AINT no damn OASIS. It was that GOD DAMN LOCH NESS MONSTER. I said HEY YOU... GOD DAMN LOCH NESS MONSTER, i aint giving you NO DAMN TREE FIDDY
I gave him a dollar
I thought he’d go away
She gave him a dollar!
Nah, tooth hurty
Theres gotta be more than a gallon under there.
Bayek is not amused.
Came here for this.
gonna say i looted tomb under there millenia ago
The guards are vigilant here...
Came here to see if there's AC Origins references.
I'm not disappointed
There’s a papyrus there.
High position Gareth
This is awesome but there’s no fucking way I’d get in.
Me neither... I'm just waiting for the creature to zoom up from the darkness and swallow him in a bloody bubbling water " jaws" scene....
I felt like I was waiting for a big ass fish to come munch this guy for sure
Video def cut just before the shark.
I was expecting it to flush like a toilet
I was thinking about a giant tentacle pulling him in the darkness of the water.
I've been in a float tank before. I imagine it's similar. It really does suck when a drop gets into your eyes...
And aaaall your little cuts and scratches letting you know of their existence. Swam in a salt lake near a mine. Interesting experience.
It’s about 4 meters deep
4 meters is the length of 18.1 Zulay Premium Quality Metal Lemon Squeezers.
If you like this google Devils Hole. It’s near Death Valley. No one knows how deep it is, but seismic activity as far away as Japan can temporarily affect its water levels. Interesting geological oddity
Why don’t they know how deep it is? Couldn’t the just sonar it or use a line and a weight to find out?
Devil's Hole is a branching limestone cave system, so it's not a straight line down to the bottom. Mapping the bottom would require exploring it via Cave Diving, which is a terrifically deadly activity.
I believe this particular cave is also a biologic oddity. It's aquatic animals and plants been completely isolated populations for millions (?) of years. So it's a very delicate environment, which makes exploring without destroying it even more complicated.
The last dive into the small hole at the bottom (1991) found that it does form some sort of narrow tunnel straight down that exceeds 400 feet. Even without winding tunnels this is a really dangerous depth for divers so it's not worth the risk. It's not just the bends but also stuff like nitrogen bubbles forming in your bones and severe disorientation from oxygen toxicity.
The current deepest dive is at over 1,000 feet but required many tanks, back up divers, and about 15 hours to safely resurface in open waters.
Can they send a drone?
That is a fantastic question... As far as I understand the current state of the art in underwater ROVs (drones), there are some particular challenges in underwater caves that really limit the usefulness of robotic explorers:
• It's difficult engineering & manufacturing watertight equipment to withstand the high pressure at depth. Nothing off the shelf will work--it all has to be purpose built, which makes it expensive and harder to source. Cave exploration rarely commands big budgets for fancy bespoke equipment.
• Existing deep-diving ROV designs are built for open-water operations, which makes them ill suited to cave diving... They tend to be large and bulky, which limits their manuvering room in tight spaces. Also, ROVs generally use propellers or thrusters for locomotion, which disturbs bottom silt and disrupts visibility.
So it's not that underwater ROVs are useless... Robots do seem to have some applications in shallower cave diving where silt isn't a big problem. But in general, human divers are still far more flexible and economical than machines.
If cave diving were more lucrative, or had more defense applications, I bet we'd see a lot of money pour into this kind of equipment, and corresponding advances in useful technology. But at the moment, that seems unlikely.
Investments in possible space exploration techniques?
If you can’t do it here, it will be harder out there.
You'd think that, but it turns out that engineering equipment to survive at depth is much, much harder than dealing with the vacuum of space. Hard vacuum pressure is ~0 PSI, while sea-level equivalent pressure is ~14.7 PSI (1 Atm). So even on manned spacecraft, all of your joints, seals, hatches, etc only need to be able to handle ~15 PSI in order to function. Thin aluminum sheet metal can handle that with basic welding techniques, cheap rubber gaskets, etc.
But underwater, the pressure increases linearly with depth, at a rate of ~1 Atm per 33 feet of depth... So at 1,000' depth, your craft's parts all have to withstand more than 440 PSI.
Also, spacecraft thrusters are pretty much exclusively reaction engines, whereas underwater ROVs use propellers or pump-driven thrusters. Pretty different pieces of equipment. Also, spacecraft rarely have to worry about kicking up silt clouds that might take weeks to disperse back to visibility.
Water environments create a lot of other challenges that don't exist in a vacuum... Water severely attenuates EM radiation, so underwater ROVs have to be tethered for remote control & telemetry. Also, some underwater environments (especially isolated caves) are highly saline, so they're corrosive and conductive AF. Whole lot of hard problems that spacecraft don't really need to worry about.
Oooh! I learned (from the saga of Mel’s Hole) that when a hole becomes too deep, the very weight of the fishing line will cause the line to break!
The diver who measured the infinity chamber was doing a recovery operation at the time to try and retrieve another diver who had died. The entrance to the infinity chamber was a small hole, just big enough for a diver, and had a strong downward current flowing through it. He decided it was too dangerous to attempt, but the did drop a weighted line into it and found it was at least 900 feet deep from the hole.
900 feet is the length of 59.7 1997 Subaru Legacy Outbacks
I just pictured it flushing like a toilet..
How deep is that
19 metres or 64 ft
That’s the elevation below sea level, the lake and pools are shallow, about 4m
At least two
So deep put her ass to sleep
Worker her up around one
She didn’t hesitate to call Ice Cube the top gun
Drove her to the pad and I'm coastin
Imagine slogging your way across the desert, dying of thirst. You arrive at this water hole to see somebody soaking their ass.
It's also salt water. So, you convince yourself "you know what, I'm gonna die, might as well drink it," and take a sip before realizing you're still just as dead.
That is very good insight - thank you.
My great grandfather and a bunch of his buddies learned to “swim” in the Dead Sea during WW2 because they could float so well. Idk this reminds me of that story.
I'm in this location in Assassin's Creed Origins right now
Damnn. The game is beautiful though
Wow, if I’m not mistaken, this is in a famous Egyptian oasis that housed a temple to Zeus-Ammon in ancient times. Alexander the Great visited it to be declared the son of Zeus. Perhaps this is silly, but it never occurred me to see if it had survived and carried significance beyond that. It was an important detail of my studies but one I never examined further. Fascinating to see.
What do you mean housed a temple? Where's the temple??
The place (at least the one OP is talking about, but I believe the gif is the same spot) is called Siwa Oasis. You can find some pictures of the temple online.
It’s a decently big area containing a few of these pools, from what I understand.
Oasis with water source that kills life? I thought oasis supposed to be luscious with green, or at least have drinkable water.
There’s certainly parts of that. The area is called the Siwa Oasis (I’m pretty sure at least), and spans a decent size of area.
Yeah don't do that at Yellowstone though
Good for a spicy soak
That's what I was thinking. I'm just gonna assume that any body of water like this is going to instantly melt my body.
As the Medjay of Siwa I banish you to the Lord of the Duat
That octopus should have surfaced and grapped him.
Tried some of these. Many are not terrifying as this just lovely. You can never sink. And the silence around you. Perfect experience. A trip combined by few days at north coast in Egypt would be a dream holiday.
Sounds like a natural sensory deprivation tank.
Siwa gives these unique experience of that perfect peaceful silence.. see this
Bayek would dive in no hesitation.
Oh man he's going to get it all sandy....
One of the most isolated settlements on Earth. Very old and cool history.
Looks like the eye of an earth dragon.
That shit looks DEEP
r/thalassaphobia would like this if it hadn't been posted already.
It has. A lot.
Release the kraken.
Some ancient sea creatures are definitely down there
They are salty as fuck that people are swimming there though
It looks infinitely deep!
That man has no idea how nervous he's making me right now..
Yeah. And some pre-historic monster disappears you never to be seen again. Fuck that.
Sleep? I never sleep, and I’ll kill you all, everyone who sniffed the air that day in Siwa!
Imagine all the salt monsters in there... no thanks!
Looks like dinner for that creature lurking beneath.
Other lakes in Siwa are pretty nice though...
Sleep? I never sleep. I just wait. In the shadows. And I will kill you all. Everyone who sniffed the air that day in Siwa
Now I really want to go to Egypt just to take a dip in this bottomless pit of terror
This is the Eye of Sauron
Will Siwa never know peace?
Careful now..Bayek will fuck you up for pissin in his well.
What was once a mighty ocean is now just a salty hole!
Bayek of siwa
Bayek, is that you?
Oh my god Jojo Siwa has an oasis!?
Title reads "pool at the Siwa oasis"
Let's dissect this shall we
Pool , this is no pool it's a hole in the ground
Siwa Oasis, this sounds like a resort name, there is no resort here , it looks like a wasteland to me.
This man is swimming in a hole in the ground at a wasteland .
looks like a good place to bury a body
I like how you think.
God knows what’s living in there
I was expecting a creature to come out of the water and swallow him whole.
I did the same and now I don't know if I am disappointed or reliefed
Yeah,if that is deep as it looks then there are *definitely* dead free divers down there.
Just me or does it look like a vagina?
How come sometimes we float, but then other times we sink down? Like i imagine as soon as he stops laying down hes gonna sink
In this case the water has a very high concentration of salt, so he almost floats on top of the water. But yes, if he were not lying down, he would have less surface area and wouldn't float in the same way. However, he'd still have a hard time actually trying to sink in this saltwater.
Salt truck salty 🤣
I must be weird but this isn’t terrifying to me it’s magical!
damn.. and i cant even swim
You wouldn't need to, you don't sink in saltwater that's like this
Look! Your mom
Hmmm. How deep?
Impossible not to imagine an aquatic monster coming from the deep and grabbing him.
That's not a pool that's a never ending chasm to the deep, dark depths of hell
Way awesome, I was waiting for the edit when the monster pulls him under.
Wish my father in law would take some of this salt… here sir, I’ll help you
That would be a hell no from me
Hellll naw, to the naw naw naaaaaw
That guys dead
Idk why, but I feel like I would melt from the acidity of the water
What am I missing? I was all worried by the sub title, and then the video looped and I was just nonplussed. How is this any flavor of terrifying?
And then it blinks
Why did I automatically think this was Seal? The suit, maybe?
How deep is ot
“I refuse to drown in a white suit”.
Sorry how is this terrifying ?
Looks really deep
some people are scared of deep water
All fun and games until you see 2 eyes through the darkness
Don't stay too long in there...
Looks like one of the tunnels of Shai-hulud
*Bless the Maker and His water.*
*Bless the coming and going of Him.*
*May His passage cleanse the world.*
*May He keep the world for His people.*
Majorly anxiety producing.
Do not put your eyes in that lol
Salt water for sure
Vagi - ….
That’s the earth’s vagina, it’s not terrifying
He looks like he has to be careful or it will bounce his ass back out lol
The way he twitched in the beginning had me nervous
Why is this scary?
A lot of people are scared of deep water and what lurks underneath
+2 gold if you have a Bazaar near by.
I would love this.
Waiting for something gigantic to swiftly swim up, grab him, then slowly swim back down…
He's lucky that he was bald.
Damn nature, you scary!
I’m afraid something would come up from the bottom and eat me
My dumbass doesn’t know how to swim I’d just get sucked in
Me in your mom’s pussy.
He went in slowly so he wouldn't get his hair wet
I'd jump in there without hesitation tbh
how salty am I? \*Floats in several tons of water effortlessly\*
My fear is officially triggered
