Its been a decade, and transmetropolitan is still the best comic ever
Does anyone got that feeling that microsoft is just screwing with us? Like all that crazy shit about the Xbox one is just a joke and like two months before they release it they’ll come clean and it will be amazing?
yeah right, but we can hope.

NEW DEEP SEA HYDROTHERMAL VENT COMMUNITIES IN THE SOUTHER OCEAN
The study was performed in the depths of East Ridge Scotie (Antartic Ocean) by ROV (Remoteley Operated Vehicle), a vehicle operated by remote control, which has enabled it to capture the amazing images. Despite the depth and temperature, there is a rich biodiversity down there
- Unidentified octopus at 2,394 m depth.
- Actinostolid sea anemones surrounded by Vulcanolepas on a chimney with diffuse hydrothermal venting at 138, 2,396 m depth
- Undescribed peltospiroid gastropod surrounding single Kiwa sp. and partially covered by Lepetodrilus sp. The pycnogonid Sericosura is at the bottom right of the image ( 2,608 m depth)
