    A few things here blow my mind. No matter what happens on the surface, the largest storm, a nuclear war, the life at the bottom will be relatively unaffected. In 10 million years after we've blown ourselves up and everything we've built returned to earth, these creatures will be making their way out of the waters the same way our distant ancestors did to do it all over again.
