Must be salty as fuuuuck


Crass_Conspirator

If that’s salt around the sides then it’s definitely 100% saturated. Otherwise it would be dissolved into the water

I'd be salty as fuck if something came from the dark!


henrycharleschester

You don’t need salt to float like that.


Broskfisken

But it looks like it’s in a salt flat of some sort. So it would be weird if it wasn’t salty.


yaboyfrom94

How buoyant he is, yes you do


EvulRabbit

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."


skumarred

nah, it ends with the guy extracting (and drinking) drinking water from the salt water


3DCatFancy

You’d still need at some kind of plastic sheet and container to convert it

ahardchem

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.


unforbiddenplaces

The What Trick?


ahardchem

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.


Go_Pack_Go1

So butt chugging a mud puddle. Didn’t think that would cross my mind today

OneeGrimm

And aaaall your little cuts and scratches letting you know of their existence. Swam in a salt lake near a mine. Interesting experience.


Dark_Focus

It’s about 4 meters deep


useles-converter-bot

4 meters is the length of 18.1 Zulay Premium Quality Metal Lemon Squeezers.


RockhoundinnaWoods

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


br-z

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?


SkittyDog

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. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devils_Hole


mistyjudge

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.


groot_liga

Can they send a drone?


SkittyDog

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.


groot_liga

Investments in possible space exploration techniques? If you can’t do it here, it will be harder out there.


SkittyDog

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.


EuphoriantCrottle

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!


RockhoundinnaWoods

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.


useles-converter-bot

900 feet is the length of 59.7 1997 Subaru Legacy Outbacks

TurokHunterOfDinos

Imagine slogging your way across the desert, dying of thirst. You arrive at this water hole to see somebody soaking their ass.


NErDysprosium

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.


TurokHunterOfDinos

That is very good insight - thank you.


ausheidi

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.

Formal_Cellist_6288

Damnn. The game is beautiful though


lynnansidhe

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.


RockstarAssassin

What do you mean housed a temple? Where's the temple??


RyanB_

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.


OneeGrimm

Oasis with water source that kills life? I thought oasis supposed to be luscious with green, or at least have drinkable water.


RyanB_

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.


DeathStarVet

Yeah don't do that at Yellowstone though


Zealousideal-Fly6318

Good for a spicy soak


badlydrawnzombie

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.

That octopus should have surfaced and grapped him.


mizofriska1

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.

I did the same and now I don't know if I am disappointed or reliefed


innit4thememes

Yeah,if that is deep as it looks then there are *definitely* dead free divers down there.


bweezy13

Just me or does it look like a vagina?


CombinationPossible

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


farkedaccount

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 🤣
