  • same
  • literally came here to say this xd
  • That's what I've thought too lol
  • Myself, as well.
  • Do they have the same problem with seamines as they do with landmines? That is, not knowing where all the fields were and later being "found" by civilians? Or were they better mapped, making it less an issue to disarm/destroy them?
  • After the war some 10 000 mines were cleared in the Gulf of Finland by Finnish navy. I found a news article from 2009 that claims that there still are some 60 000 mines in the sea. From time to time those old mines are found on the shore. Latest news article was from last April. A picture of that mine .
  • TIL, big oranges grow in the sea.
  • They had a little problem with them back in the 60s in the Pacific.
  • Those poor people 🙁

  • are you sure that's not just something the professor built out of coconuts
  • Yes, absolutely still an issue. You can see mined danger areas on nautical charts, and just last month some Irish redditor found what appeared to be a sea mine washed up on a beach.
