SECOND LARGEST AQUARIUM IN THE WORLD IS RATHER STUNNING

Kyle Hill from Science-Based life says about this:

“This is the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. After the World’s Fair in Okinawa, Japan, this massive aquarium was opened in 2002 to keep the tourism to the city alive.

The main tank called the “Kuroshio Sea” holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel (an incredible 24 inches thick!). Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.

Suffice it to say that any fish tank that can hold the largest fish on Earth is pretty amazing. Seeing such giants up close must be as close to a spiritual experience as a godless heathen like me could get.”

I don’t think we could handle the first biggest aquarium in the world….

Thanks to Kyle from Science-Based life.

While I love seeing things like this, they always make me a bit sad to see how cramped the animals are…

When two worlds collide something magical happens. A majestic feeling of peace and grace.
I love the people silhouettes. The music is sublime.
Thank you Exeo,

Instead of being amazed you should be appalled…..whale sharks should not be held in forced captivity. The Japanese seem to think that is acceptable to rape our seas for their pleasure!! It may well be stunning but is it fair? They listed on the vulnerable species list and the fishing of these beautiful docile creatures is banned. Surely it is better to see their immense beauty in the wild where they are happy to swim with divers than to watch them swim round and round in a circle.xx

Oh you can handle the biggest. It’s in downtown Atlanta. And it’s near lots of other great stuff.

<3 Nice vid. Potentially beautiful lyrics but "for I loose control", the intent is slightly confused and self grasping, its not completely free. Beautiful searching minor chord, on the don't let go, real heart, less searching, less exciting chord on the "for I loose control". Nice <3

That previous comment looks a bit confusing. I just want to add a question, it could just be a coincidence, but I was just thinking minor chords (as well as this video), really feel like searching questions, whereas major chords feel like foot notes or the back story, which is presented, the “facts”, which we keep hold of, the only problem is some of the “facts” are facts, are right and decent, and some of the “facts” are not right, they are harmful and devisive. Minor chords get things moving, they stand as the part that is not resolved and requires more from us.

We are already NOT managing and looking after the biggest aquarium in the world: our oceans.

Our seas are in the EXTINCTION phase. Yes people that means they are dying which also means HUMANS WILL DIE TOO IF WE DO NOT DON’T ACT NOW.

A quarter of the planet’s surface is covered in plastic pollution. It does not biodegrade, it photodegrades and is now in our food chain and our blood streams. Not to mention radiation pollution from eg Fukishima & all the bombs going off.

Please urge your MPs to sign the Banish The Bag Early Day Motion to get an act put through parliament to put a levy on plastic bags. If you’re not sure, you can find your MP here:

Plastic in our blood streams is being passed on to our unborn babies causing birth deffects & cancer.

p.s. In this instance I don’t care about the technicality or semantics of using the word aquarium when talking about our oceans so please don’t waste time having a go at me & being pedantic. Thank you.

But also deeply saddening. We have reduced the majesty of life and all its multitudinous forms, to the sterility of a fishmonger’s slab.
