Magic Under The Sea
Not long ago I was having a conversation with 'M' (the guy who sometimes sleeps in my bed, takes me out to dinner, treats me like a princess) about worldwide communications and how there are sub-sea cables that make it all possible. His immediate response was something to the effect of, "They would have to be some sort of magical cables to run long the bottom of the sea."
A couple days later I was flipping through TED Talks and found the perfect way to prove that the magical cables were quite real, click on the link below to see for yourself.
