No original content, but so impressive I had to post it.


I generally only post original content, but when I received this I couldn’t stop myself, I just had to share it. The sheer size is amazing, and all those sayings that only the top 10% is visible is so clear here.

This came from a Rig Manager for Global Marine Drilling in St. Johns , Newfoundland ..

They actually have to divert the path of these things away from the rig by towing them with ships!

Anyway, in this particular case the water was calm and the sun was almost directly overhead so that the diver was able to get into the water and click this picture.

They estimated the weight at 300,000,000 tons.
