Why are Western zoomers so afraid of the ocean? Posted on February 22, 2023 by Anonymous Why are Western zoomers so afraid of the ocean?
there are probably some ocean species that have existed in human times but have eventually gone extinct without ever being seen by a single human
we really missed out on everything that generic 5mm clam no. 849505837 could have taught us bro what a shame
>t. has no fucking clue
we've found generic 5mm snails that contained multiple wonder drugs and all the snails got out of it was stunning a tiny fish slightly faster
all morals and spirituality aside it is objectively in the white man's economic interest to preserve as much life as possible until we understand it so thoroughly we can create it from scratch
Clams can manufacture antibiotics
And bioweapons with significant implications in medical research
And possible uses for medical treatment
What does the future hold for clam juice? What could we make from it? What else are clams doing?
Save the clams, dude.
This but unironcially.
And whoever said people have lost their Faustian spirit was dead on. No one has a sense of wonder or natural curiousity anymore, and sadly it's not even limited to zoomers. Even in this very thread, on a nature board no less, we have people saying
>lol fuck the ocean it's boring and there's nothing there
Like, why even post on a board like this if that's how you feel?
Anti-intellectualism is the trend in american culture. You are to obey the state sanctioned intellectuals who were picked out by the megacorps and humanitarians, but doubt the value of everything else.
>Estrogenic mutagenic toxin that makes for cheap pesticide is generally recognized as safe trust the experts
>woah hold on are you saying i should give a fuck about some poison clams
shit, i haven't been on this board for a month
who got the digits
Believing there are megalodons and leviathans in the ocean depths is like believing in aliens. Except alien believers are seen as conspiracy nuts and freaks, while giant sea monster believers are seen as relatively valid, due to general populace's low level of knowledge on the subject. Which I guess ironically validates the idea that we don't know a lot about the ocean.
>alien believers are seen as conspiracy nuts and freaks
Not alien believers, only people believing they are visiting us.
This, in all likelihood there's aliens out there, but they're probably AT BEST as advanced as us. And that's being super charitable, chances are our introduction to alien life will be some tiny mindless blobs floating around in some exoplanet's ocean. Interesting, but admittedly kind of boring.
>eastern zoomers be like "less than 10% of the ocean has been eaten"
because they have lost the Faustian spirit. They have no desire to explore the great unknown. That's why an increasing number of them are turning against space travel and space exploration.
>That's why an increasing number of them are turning against space travel and space exploration.
That sounds like bullshit.
i played a lot of games with scary shit in the water.
banjo kazooie, jak 3.
Also lets not ignore the fact that these species live in extreme depths, where if they are found near the surface where humans might be they are either dead or very close to dead. Thalassophobia is just the grown up version of Nyctophobia (fear of the dark).
There are a lot of fears that can be linked to the sea, the fear of open an wide spaces and the fear of suffocating as well.
Recognizing that the ocean is fascinating and scary is alright.
Having a phobia is dumb unless you had some traumatic experience with it.
Remember kids, the ocean is 95% unexplored. So a surface dwelling, sight oriented, warm water shark that required enormous numbers of large prey is definitely living down there in the cold, dark, barren abyss
I thought we mapped the entire ocean floor already.
As accurate as the famous "humans only use 10% of their brains".
All of these animals are harmless if you leave them alone
>scary thing is not scary if you don't interact with it
>watched 20,000 leagues under the sea a hundred times as a kid
>the giant squid scene always spooked the hell out of me
>look up giant squids at the library
>they're just big squid
6 meters (20 ft) goblin shark
Thallasophobia is for idiots who still believe in sea monsters. Biggest thing you're conceivably going to run into out there is a sunfish. Whales stay away and sharks want nothing to do with you.
the only thing scary about the ocean is not being able to breath, with that risk removed its just like a big space you can essentially fly in
it represents what zoomers are most scared of boredom. Most the of the ocean almost entirely uninhabited even on the bottom.
You Will Never Be Japanese
>OH MY GOD IS THAT...IS THAT A SQUID???
>AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I'M GOING INSAAAAAAAAAAANE
>moronMAN SAVE ME
half of it has already been mapped
>As of summer 2022, 23.4 percent of the ocean is mapped, reflecting an increase of 10.1 million square kilometers (almost 3.9 million square miles) of new bathymetric data from 2022.
it annoys me how when people say that less that one nanogorillionth of an ocean has been explored, they do it to imply that there are heckin' giant Leviathanerinos lurking in the depths that will totally come and eat you if you ever get lost at sea. When in reality it's probably nothing cool like that and most of the unexplored stuff will only be of interest to marine biologists because it's something like 357 billion different subspecies of plankton we don't know about.
I specifically blame tiktok for this particularly retarded breed of fear-mongering zoomer.
This. Zoomers are gays who clutch their pearls over literally anything.
the LE FUCK LE OCEAN LOL may may is a lot older than tik tok
Nah it's definetly been a thing for way longer than TikTok
Reddit overacting re mundane interests AS ALWAYS has fuck all to do with gen z or animals you tedious retards
>heckin' giant Leviathanerinos
I generally hate it when people talk like that, but this particular one made me audibly expel air from my nostrils.
>One account of a bigeye sand tiger that had been caught alive noted that it behaved very aggressively, thrashing and snapping violently in and out of the water.
No megalodonerino but there are monsters in the deep.
>very aggressive when pulled up by a hook
I wonder why
at best their are more 20ft bullshit sharks which the likelyhood of that already isnt great. also why fear these retarded geriatric fish when orcas and sperm whales exist
And even then it’s much more likely to be the case that someone finds a new species of sleeper or goblin shark almost identical to the ones we already know rather than something totally new
your mom is a sperm whale
Orcas thing human are ship larva and don't mess with us.
there is nothing left in nature which can offer a comparable sense of mystery these days.
What else compares?
>What else compares?
their is fucking nothing in the ocean accept for lantern fish isopods and retarded jellyfish, i personally think theirs octopus people somewhere down there but theyre not gonna let us find them
except* i had a moment
t. exotic and fantastic deep sea lurker
wtf, I hate the ocean now.
