Subby should spend the rest of this winter tied to a f*cking couch for that headline.

How deep is it?
 
2014-01-21 03:35:37 PM
The headline was silly and unrelated to the content of the video, yet it was still 10x more informative than the video. I want my 1:27 back.

Deeper than the backdoor of the politics tab?

So that video has:

a) no credits
b) no link to sources
c) a video player that cannot be muted or stopped or rewound or with any indication of how long it is or where it is in play and luckily for us all, it auto plays

Good Job Slate!

Linking to autoplaying 'news' videos with no written article should result in chemical castration for both subby and the article author.

If I am elected your president, I will make this a reality.

Which is worse, the craptastic video player or the narrator's voice or the headline?

C)

That video was horrible, so I'm not sure how they got Stan Lee to do the voice over.

All I can say for certain is that you're correct about the first three seconds of the video. Beyond that, I'll take your word for it.

Ellsworth Trough: Giant Subglacial Trench Discovered in Antarctica no video

Dr Ross concluded: "to me, this just goes to demonstrate how little we still know about the surface of our own planet. The discovery and exploration of hidden, previously-unknown landscapes is still possible and incredibly exciting, even now."

Well good for you Dr Ross, I'm glad you're happy. /snark

I don't mind the autoplay video so much because this is a video story. However, the video is fairly stupid and pointless.

I think I once read that the incredibly detailed ocean floor that we used to see (and still see?) on the traditional globe was mostly fabricated to fill in uncharted space. Is that (or was that) true?
 
2014-01-21 04:05:23 PM
So what you are saying is scientists found a giant frigid gash in the Mother Earth?
 
2014-01-21 04:07:01 PM
The narration makes me want to ride on a small school bus....

If you like big huge robots fighting big huge monsters then it is awesome.  If you don't like big huge robots fighting big huge monsters then you won't enjoy it.

I enjoyed it.  I didn't really give a crap about the characters or the acting, just the explosions.

BOOM! BLAM! KA-BLAMMO!!!

boom.
