Oh My God, It’s Full of Stars!

I really hope the scientists said that* when they found this. Really. It’s a mountain, underwater, colonized by millions of starfish. Amazing.

It is at the Macquarie Ridge, near New Zealand.

Go and see the video (above is a still from it) at the BBC News page here!

[*Pop quiz: Without Google-cheating – Anyone know what the title is a quote from? (I use it every chance I get.) Update: A commenter reminded me that there is no “Oh” in the original quote. Thanks!]

    It’s from the end of 2001. And I think–although I claim no certainty without “Google-cheating”–that there actually shouldn’t be an “Oh” at the front.

    Yes! That’s correct.

    About the “Oh”… You are right. Drat. Well, too late to change the title now.

    I love using that quote as well. Especially substituting, X for “stars.” 🙂
