...into the realm of weird and strange monsters

James Cameron, the man behind water-logged blockbusters like Titanic and The Abyss, has announced his intention to dive alone to the deepest point in the ocean in the next few weeks and bring back some of the alien creatures that live there.

Cameron has already dived deeper than any other human on a solo mission, when he plummeted five miles down the New Britain Trench off Papua New Guinea during testing in his one-man seacraft earlier this week.


Wanna bet he's got a computer named Avatar along for the ride?

His last words will be "AHHH'LLL BEAH BAKKKK!"

Uh, what exactly does he mean by "bring back"?

:: icky mental picture of exploded remains splattered over interior of specimen jar ::

I'm not going to ask whether "alien" is his word or the writer's. I really hope it isn't the copy editor's.

Cameron is hoping that the dive will answer some basic questions about ocean trenches, such as whether actual fish can live down there and what other strange species can survive in perpetual darkness in water chilled to near freezing.

..unless the dive is planned to navigate to a hydrothermal vent where anaerobic chemosynthetic communities exist that have some of the densest concentrations of "life" in the ocean -- ones which some people believe are the origin of life on earth.


Or -- maybe, along with privately funded space travel, Sir Richard Branson has mastered time travel and will one-up Cameron's deep sea dive and it will be something like the final episode of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea Episode #110, ("No Way Back")...
