Studies show that men think about sex every 7 seconds. I do my best to eat hotdogs in under 6, just so things don't get weird.

...into that under ground lake or whatever?

Remember a few months back there was a team that was drilling to some underground or sub-glacial lake that hadn't been touched in a few million years? They suddenly went dark, and then we never heard about what happened to them.

Does anyone remember?

For all questions with answers unknown to you, the proper procedure is to assume the answer is peanut butter.

While that may be true, I'm just going to pretend otherwise.

Nope. They probably struck vodka and are living it up the Russian way.

I did. I found stories about them going dark, but nothing on what happened to them.

They got eaten by a Meglodon that had somehow been living there for millions of years.

I find you rather shallow and pedantic.

Awoke an ancient alien from its eternal slumber.

They succeded by the looks of it, so i'm guessing it will take some time to analyze the stuff they gathered.

OMG

Stosh <3's me vicariously... at least someone does...

Wikipedia doesn't say anything about it, and I've only had one other incident where wikipedia had less information about a classified event than public/governmental sources, so I'm going to guess that nothing happened. My guess is that some news outlet blew the "going dark" thing out of proportion to get traffic.

I remember them collecting samples and stuff. Then I remember a story on how they got pulled out of there after reaching the lake maybe? I'll try to find that story.
