Most didn't have time to put their suits on, there were too few to breed over the long term. They died out in the early 1800s.

What would be funny is if the USA populated this continent, taxed it heavily and then the "New Atlantians" revolted.

a) We're not, we're going to reverse engineer and use "Mermaid" tech

yeah i´ve just noticed it recently because i´ve never heard of it .

apperently it´s called oceania ,and the reason they couldn´t find it is because it´s in the same place as australia.

if you look real carefull on this map you should be able to spot it.

hope this helps!

I like the science stuff her on FJ, but I feel that when I read many of the science posts are that OP has just read the headlines and rendered it into a nice frame with extremely superficial texts. If you read the sources this post is just a one-line conclusion to the actual science.
Carl Sagan would like your effort, but emphasized the ability to read science with a critical mind.
Nonetheless, I applaud you for effort and contribution.

Sincerely Norwegian Faggot

RATS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
they can hear, and see what your visually thinking
this is the complete truth
The reason a lot of rats have completely expressionless faces, segregate from every other animal associate with vermin and don’t associate with non vermins that much, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds. If all over a billion rats where to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non rats, integrate and associate with non vermin much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then a lot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non vermin a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don’t like etc, so they segregate and only associate with rats so there won’t be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.
Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around rats, and try looking for rats who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc.
I know this may sound crazy, impossible and unbelievable, BUT IT ISN’T CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE
You have to spread the message!!!!!
The world has to know about this!!!!!

Alright I love science. And I love these occasional 'today in science' posts.
But would someone care to divulge how exactly you prove, or rather, even tell, two rats are communicating telepathically?

The researchers first trained pairs of rats to solve a simple problem — to press the correct lever when an indicator light above the lever switched on, to obtain a sip of water. They next connected the two animals’ brains via arrays of microelectrodes inserted into the area of the cortex that processes touch information.

One animal of the dyad was designated as the “encoder” animal. This animal received a visual cue that informed it which lever to press in exchange for a food pellet. Once this “encoder” rat pressed the right lever, a sample of its brain activity that coded its behavioral decision was translated into a pattern of electrical stimulation that was delivered directly into the brain of the second animal of the dyad, known as the “decoder” animal.

The decoder rat had the same types of levers in its chamber, but it did not receive any visual cue indicating which lever it should press to obtain a reward. So to press the correct lever and receive the reward it craved, the decoder rat would have to rely on the cue transmitted from the encoder via the brain-to-brain machine interface.

The researchers then conducted trials to determine how well the decoder animal could decipher the brain input from the encoder rat to choose the correct lever. The decoder rat ultimately achieved a maximum success rate of about 70 percent, only slightly below the possible maximum success rate of 78 percent that the researchers had theorized was achievable. This maximum rate was what the researchers found they could achieve when they were transmitting regular electrical signals directly to the decoder rat’s brain that were not generated by the encoder.

Importantly, the communication provided by this brain-to-brain interface (BTBI) was two-way. For instance, the encoder rat did not receive a full reward if the decoder rat made a wrong choice — a “behavioral collaboration” between the pair of rats.
