ArcadianRefugee: I'm sure Cthulhu likes us dumping all this shiat on his back yard.


Exactly.

"The general area plays a major role in the 1928 short story "The Call of Cthulhu" by H. P. Lovecraft, as holding the location of the fictional city of R'lyeh, although this story was written 66 years before the identification of Point Nemo.[23] The area is nowadays known as a "spacecraft cemetery" because hundreds of decommissioned satellites, space stations, and other spacecraft have been deposited there upon re-entering the atmosphere, to lessen the risk of hitting inhabited locations[31] or maritime traffic. The International Space Station (ISS) is planned to crash into Point Nemo in 2031.[32][33]"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pole_of_inaccessibility#Oceanic_pole_of_inaccessibility
