Hapgood

At a certain moment fear assailed them; whether it was that he was fatigued, or that his head turned, they thought they saw him hesitate and stagger. All at once the crowd uttered a loud shout: the convict had fallen into the sea.

French:

À un certain moment, on eut peur; soit qu’il fût fatigué, soit que la tête lui tournât, on crut le voir hésiter et chanceler. Tout à coup la foule poussa un grand cri, le forçat venait de tomber à la mer.

Here it is folks:

My definitive ranking of my least favorite bodies of water! These are ranked from least to most scary (1/10 is okay, 10/10 gives me nightmares). I’m sorry this post is long, I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about this.

The Great Blue Hole, Belize

I’ve been here! I have snorkeled over this thing! It is terrifying! The water around the hole is so shallow you can’t even swim over the coral without bumping it, and then there’s a little slope down, and then it just fucking drops off into the abyss! When you’re over the hole the water temperature drops like 10 degrees and it’s midnight blue even when you’re right by the surface. Anyway. The Great Blue Hole is a massive underwater cave, and its roughly 410 feet deep. Overall, it’s a relatively safe area to swim. It’s a popular tourist attraction and recreational divers can even go down and explore some of the caves. People do die at the Blue Hole, but it is generally from a lack of diving experience rather than anything sinister going on down in the depths. My rating for this one is 1/10 because I’ve been here and although it’s kinda freaky it’s really not that bad.

Lake Baikal, Russia

When I want to give myself a scare I look at the depth diagram of this lake. It’s so deep because it’s not a regular lake, it’s a Rift Valley, A massive crack in the earth’s crust where the continental plates are pulling apart. It’s over 5,000 feet deep and contains one-fifth of all freshwater on Earth. Luckily, its not any more deadly than a normal lake. It just happens to be very, very, freakishly deep. My rating for this lake is a 2/10 because I really hate looking at the depth charts but just looking at the lake itself isn’t that scary.

Jacob’s Well, Texas

This “well” is actually the opening to an underwater cave system. It’s roughly 120 feet deep, surrounded by very shallow water. This area is safe to swim in, but diving into the well can be deadly. The cave system below has false exits and narrow passages, resulting in multiple divers getting trapped and dying. My rating is a 3/10, because although I hate seeing that drop into the abyss it’s a pretty safe place to swim as long as you don’t go down into the cave (which I sure as shit won’t).

The Devil’s Kettle, Minnesota

This is an area in the Brule River where half the river just disappears. It literally falls into a hole and is never seen again. Scientists have dropped in dye, ping pong balls, and other things to try and figure out where it goes, and the things they drop in never resurface. Rating is 4/10 because Sometimes I worry I’m going to fall into it.

Flathead Lake, Montana

Everyone has probably seen this picture accompanied by a description about how this lake is actually hundreds of feet deep but just looks shallow because the water is so clear. If that were the case, this would definitely rank higher, but that claim is mostly bull. Look at the shadow of the raft. If it were hundreds of feet deep, the shadow would look like a tiny speck. Flathead lake does get very deep, but the spot the picture was taken in is fairly shallow. You can’t see the bottom in the deep parts. However, having freakishly clear water means you can see exactly where the sandy bottom drops off into blackness, so this still ranks a 5/10.

The Lower Congo River, multiple countries

Most of the Congo is a pretty normal, if large, River. In the lower section of it, however, lurks a disturbing surprise: massive underwater canyons that plunge down to 720 feet. The fish that live down there resemble cave fish, having no color, no eyes, and special sensory organs to find their way in the dark. These canyons are so sheer that they create massive rapids, wild currents and vortexes that can very easily kill you if you fall in. A solid 6/10, would not go there.

Little Crater Lake, Oregon

On first glance this lake doesn’t look too scary. It ranks this high because I really don’t like the sheer drop off and how clear it is (because it shows you exactly how deep it goes). This lake is about 100 feet across and 45 feet deep, and I strongly feel that this is too deep for such a small lake. Also, the water is freezing, and if you fall into the lake your muscles will seize up and you’ll sink and drown. I don’t like that either. 7/10.

Grand Turk 7,000 ft drop off

No. 8/10. I hate it.


Gulf of Corryvreckan, Scotland

Due to a quirk in the sea floor, there is a permanent whirlpool here. This isn’t one of those things that looks scary but actually won’t hurt you, either. It absolutely will suck you down if you get too close. Scientists threw a mannequin with a depth gauge into it and when it was recovered the gauge showed it went down to over 600 feet. If you fall into this whirlpool you will die. 9/10 because this seems like something that should only be in movies.

The Bolton Strid, England

This looks like an adorable little creek in the English countryside but it’s not. Its really not. Statistically speaking, this is the most deadly body of water in the world. It has a 100% mortality rate. There is no recorded case of anyone falling into this river and coming out alive. This is because, a little ways upstream, this isn’t a cute little creek. It’s the River Wharfe, a river approximately 30 feet wide. This river is forced through a tiny crack in the earth, essentially turning it on its side. Now, instead of being 30 feet wide and 6 feet deep, it’s 6 feet wide and 30 feet deep (estimated, because no one actually knows how deep the Strid is). The currents are deadly fast. The banks are extremely undercut and the river has created caves, tunnels and holes for things (like bodies) to get trapped in. The innocent appearance of the Strid makes this place a death trap, because people assume it’s only knee-deep and step in to never be seen again. I hate this river. I have nightmares about it. I will never go to England just because I don’t want to be in the same country as this people-swallowing stream. 10/10, I live in constant fear of this place.


Honorable mention: The Quarry, Pennsylvania

I don’t know if that’s it’s actual name. This lake gets an honorable mention not because it’s particularly deep or dangerous, but it’s where I almost drowned during a scuba diving accident.

[id: a massive serpent lies still in a pool, twisted upon itself even in death. Its great fanged mouth games open, leaking venom that lies oily upon the water. Curled on her side amid the coils, a knight in golden plate with long black hair clings to her spear, with its short wide blade framed by a pair of downward-facing protruding blades in a silver crescent, still piercing the great snake’s body. Tied to the spear is a long crimson pennant that hangs heavy in the water yet flows like blood, down and around the shaft of the spear and through her open hand, as her unfocused gaze lays beyond it.]/end id.

Since the confinement provided me with A LOT OF FREE TIME I made a little short film about my two medieval OCs 

I’m not fully satisfied with every shots and the sound design is pretty bad in some parts but I just wanted to have fun and get back to animation !

Hope you’ll like it  ✨

[video description: a short animation, set to the sound of bells ringing calm and mysterious. the animation opens at a clear pool in the middle of a dark, mossy forest. a young knight with light-skin and shoulder length orange hair with a crown braid, kneeling at the bank of the pool and washing her face. her horse stands behind her. she cups the water in her palms and looks at her reflection in the surface of the pool. off to the side, a patch of rushes start to rustle and a mermaid peeks through them. she has long, pale blue hair hanging in her face, red eyes, and pale skin with patches of scales. he looks with curiosity at the knight and slips into the water. her long, silvery, serpent-like tail glides behind her with a little splash. the knight startles and turns to look at the source of the noise. the mermaid darts through the water toward her. the knight stands and looks around anxiously, then draws her sword and steps into the pool. the mermaid pokes the top of her head through the surface of the water as the knight walks further in. the mermaid lets her hand slip from a mossy rock in the pool and goes back underwater, snaking toward the knight from behind. the knight is in a ready stance with her sword in front of her and turns around with a gasp. there’s a cut to black and a splash, before we return to see the knight fallen into the pool, wrestling with the mermaid. she pins the mermaid and levels her sword at her throat, but stops, breathing heavily. the mermaid’s tail twitches under her. the knight looks down at the mermaid with wide-eyed surprise and the mermaid stares serenely back up at her. her long hair fans out in the water under her. the animation cuts to black and green title text reading “medieval girlfriends” fades in.]
