    Australian Cave Diving

    I came across an interesting and extremely macho article about Australian cave diving on Vice News.

    These caves are quite unique; as the article states:

    “Most caves elsewhere in the world were formed when streams carved holes into ancient fault lines, but South Australia was a little weirder.

    “The middle Australian state is book ended by two huge sheets of limestone that formed under the sea. Then later, when the sea drained away, rain gnawed into the limestone to form sprawling networks of water-logged tunnels that disappear for kilometers into the guts of the Earth.”

    Once these caves were discovered, the sport of Australian cave diving evolved to explore these caves.

    After 11 divers died in a span of six years during the 1970s, the Cave Divers Association of Australia was formed to try and make it safer by kicking out the thrill seekers and suicide freaks.

    Anyway, to read the article in it’s entirety, go here:

    UPDATE: This dog was adopted Sunday, October 29th and went to a new home!

    By the way, this beautiful, loyal and trustworthy dog is still available for adoption.

    If you adopt him, he will not get executed.

    Wonderful doggie!

    This dog needs a home – he is an all-American, good ol’ non-terrorist dog!

    1. PSD, I’d like to commend you for sticking to your patriotic values. I have noticed in all your writings you use the tried-and-true All-American inches-feet-pounds convention when expressing units of measurement. It makes me so angry when I see the inferior Eurocentric metric system infiltrating into the contemporary media of this country. Thank you for resisting this corrupting foreign trend, and thank you for continuing to be the truest of American patriots who we all can look up to for always doing what is best for the United States of America.
