Strange structure at bottom of Sea of Galilee

A mysterious, circular structure, with a diameter greater than the length of a Boeing 747 jet, has been discovered submerged about 30 feet (9 meters) underneath the Sea of Galilee in Israel.

Scientists first made the discovery by accident in 2003 using sonar to survey the bottom of the lake but published their findings only recently.

"We just bumped into it," recalls Shmuel Marco, a geophysicist from Tel Aviv University who worked on the project. "Usually the bottom of the lake is quite smooth. We were surprised to find a large mound. Initially we didn't realize the importance of this but we consulted with a couple of archaeologists, and they said it looked like an unusually large Bronze Age statue."

30 feet? I could snorkel most of the way there. Is the SoG murky?

I assume they meant 30 feet underground

one would hope so or else I would really question why it took 10 years for anyone to mention it or to go check it out!!!!

I could snorkel through 30 feet of dirt.

I'm a badass snorkeler.

No.

The place where they found it is 10 meters deep or less. The structure looks to be a few meters high, so in reality it is only a few feet from the surface of the water.

Bronze statue? Looks like a mound of dirt to me.

hmmmm, found it in 2003, it's readily available to investigate being in only 30 feet of water, and they finally publish their "findings" 10 years later? color me unimpressed.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
