James Cameron reaches deepest spot on Earth

Hollywood icon James Cameron has made it to Earth's deepest point.
 
The director of "Titanic," "Avatar" and other films used a specially designed submarine to dive nearly seven miles, completing his journey a little before 8 a.m. Monday local time, according to Stephanie Montgomery of the National Geographic Society...

The scale of the trench is hard to grasp -- it's 120 times larger than the Grand Canyon and more than a mile deeper than Mount Everest is tall...

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

And if his submarine were to spring a leak at that depth, he'd be squashed before he could even say "squashed".


For example:

Crab gets sucked into 1/4-inch slit in deep sea pipe.

From the article:

Quote
"Just arrived at the ocean's deepest [point]. Hitting bottom never felt so good. Can't wait to share what I'm seeing [with] you," Cameron said in the tweet.

What in the good hell?  Am I to understand that he actually managed to send a tweet from 7 miles underwater but I cannot manage to get cell reception on my campus? I'm bitter.
