Deman: Nuclear Monk: Ok...so it's pretty neat and all, but...why does it need to be studied/identified? Is there honestly a belief it belongs to godzilla, and at best, aren't they really only going to say it's either something completely mundane or that they have no idea what it is?

Is there a sea creature eye identification chart out there somewhere they are going to consult?

Probably hope that it doesn't match any of the gigantic marine species we already know about, suggesting that we have yet to discover another creature of Leviathanic proportions.


Or, in the case of squid/octopus, some evidence that they get bigger than we've seen. Afaik we've seen bigger scars on sperm whales than would match recorded collosal squid.

We see something new every time we take a peek down there.

Also, living under the sea is the solution to all of my problems. I can't wait for gills.

Please do not be alarmed.

We are about to engage...the nozzle.

Please do not move while the nozzle is engaging.

Moving will disrupt calibration of...the nozzle.

Please wait while we calibrate...the nozzle.

Please do not look away from...the nozzle.

The nozzle is now calibrating.

The nozzle is still calibrating.

The nozzle has completed calibration.

Thank you.

"Oh, that huge eyeball? We didn't care. Figured it's probably something we already know about. So we threw it away. Why do you ask?"
