mcmnky: Kevin72: I guess it's a white people's problem. Nothing from Asia or Africa, even the one in India was a Mooslim structure.

It's not like India is part of Asia.

Russia, neither.


Don't feed the racists.

There are a lot of ancient Egyptian buildings sitting under Lake Nasser. They couldn't move them all like they did with Abu Simbel when they dammed the Nile.

Not drowned, but at the beach. Buried by sand dunes:

BumpInTheNight: 'Round here all we've got are drown trucks in the canal from foolish national capital commission employees testing their luck during the falls & springs.


Back up home in CT (and anywhere it gets very cold) we had something similar...during winter lakes would freeze over, inevitably a handful of fools would drive out on them in cars, trucks, snowmobiles, etc and a few would find the thin spots.

5. Jal Mahal Palace, India

Is it even technically 'drowned'?

I went past it, I figured it was a similar deal as the lake palace (It's on a plateau in the water, so still habitable).

casual disregard: BlckDv: casual disregard: miss diminutive: What is dead may never die.

That does not sound right. It should read thus:

"That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die."

While Lovecraft is always classic casual disregard, I think miss diminutive was actually going for Martin, in which case the response is:

What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder and stronger

Mmph. Aren't they basically saying the same thing?

I wish I had the balls to put that Lovecraft line in my e-mail signature. Here's the body of my e-mail, here's our organization's official policy which is whatever, here are the requirements for the project, please let me know if you require any additional information, and then my signature. Name, team, organization. And then Lovecraft as an inspirational quote.

/tiny balls



Hide it inside a disclaimer paragraph at the bottom of the e-mail. No one ever reads those.

I tried a GIS for the scene in The Castle of Cagliostro for the reveal, but failed. Based, I think, on one of the examples in the article.

Yup. Overhead environment, like caves or shipwreck penetration.

Chariset: ChrisDe: A lot of churches in that list. Where is your God now?

Churches were probably the only structures built well enough (and tall enough) to withstand prolonged submersion in lake water


See previous post with a drowned concrete grain elevator....

They demolished a large one downtown a few years ago. They used an excavator to gnaw away at the base and removed ~90+% of the base before it started to fail. I decided then that, if I ever needed a really stout building, reinforced concrete would be the way to go.

/In the Dried Pea and Lentil Capital of the World, grain elevators are the local equivalent of cathedrals....

India is in the Indian Subcontinent and the part of Russia in Asia is Siberia where it's too cold to have drowneding (sic) buildings.

First line: India is a country in South Asia.

You're actually arguing that India is not in Asia.

Action Seal: Awesome find, subby. When I was a kid, I used to be obsessed with drawing the interiors of buildings that had been half drowned - usually cathedrals. Don't know why this sort of thing still fascinates me, but it does. I'm sure it's because I'm deep and philosophical. Something about the impermanence of human achievements. Yeah. Let's go with that.


You probably heard Debussy's La Cathedrale Engloutie as a kid

Or you're working as a team.
