Scientists have found a lake under the sea. Those who swim in the Jacuzzi of Despair won't come back alive.

Stashed in: Awesome, Under the sea!

Woah. I wonder how I can find out more. 

Thanks! What makes it deadly:

The water in the 'lake within the sea' is about five times as salty as the water surrounding it. It also contains highly toxic concentrations of methane and hydrogen sulphide and can thus not mix with the surrounding sea.

For animals (and people) who swim into it, these toxic concentrations can be deadly. Only bacterial life, tube worms, and shrimp can survive those circumstances.

"Jacuzzi of Despair" would make a great rock band name.

As would "Jacuzzi of Hope". And "Jacuzzi of Destiny"!

"Jacuzzi of Insanity"!
