FTA : set a record by drilling more than 6,926 feet (2,111 meters) beneath the seafloor

Is it odd that I'm wondering how deep the water was where they were drilling?

TFA gives no indication, so I'm going to assume they were in 20 feet of water and came up just shy of drilling down to 7000 feet below sea level.

Captain, we're so deep! Surely, we must be 20,000 leagues under the sea by now!

/to the center of the Earth!!

Why would they want to go so low? Aren't they short enough?

Silly Japanese. There are no whales at those depths.

Silly Japanese! As if causing the Cloverfield monster to rise from the ocean floor to attack New York, now they have to find yet another way to draw out some long-forgotten monstrosity from the depths? The only person who could possibly hope to gain from this is J.J. Abrams, and seriously, does anyone really want that?

Okay, that was uncalled-for. I need to scrub my brain now.

I'd be more concerned about Cthulhu.

Being concerned about Cthulhu is like being concerned about a spring rainstorm. You know it's coming, no point in being upset about it ruining your picnic (or your existence).

What about the CHUDs? Why do people always forget the CHUDs? Maybe if we thought of them when discussing this topic, instead of treating them like an afterthought, they'd be a little less cannibalistic and a little more humanoid.

The key thing here is "ship" we have drilled far deeper in an ocean.


/but don't let that stop the morlock, mole, etc jokes they are making me smile.

I was wondering about that myself. Hasn't there been exploratory work done in the trenches drilling below the sea floor several thousand feet?

Morlocks - is that 1,000,000 Orlocks? 'Cause if it is, and 40 orlocks get you
two George Lowe sketches or a sketch and a handjob, what'd a million orlocks
get you?

/obscure?
//or is the "M" roman numeral "1,000" the way natural gas is measured?

My roommate always complains about me parking over CHUD holes on his side of the car.

I know their plan. Create a drain, when the water goes down, they claim the land.

Must be hell living on an island.

That would be the first time someone from Japan set a record from drilling something deep.

1180m according to this link.

Morelocks?

What about the Murlocks? The riggers are going to be busy drilling and then they're suddenly going to hear....

plenty of 'dispursants' on hand.

Drilling in 7000 feet of water would be impressive, but 7000 feet under the sea floor isn't even close to any kind of a record. BP's famous little well from a couple years back was probably triple that.
