You will also sense the life when you see the house's beating heart.

"I present to you Poseidon's Fortress (SYTL). Standing guard as you arrive is Poseidon himself as a winged muscular bronzed beast wielding his famous trident spear." One man's themed house in St. Cloud, Minnesota can now be yours. Turn on the laser light show for even more action and entertainment, enter the Cave Bedroom where if you leave the room disappointed you only have yourself to blame, and pump up in a gym complete with temple.

"IT'S UNDERNEATH US!"

POSEIDON REX: HALF DINOSAUR! HALF SEA MONSTER! ALL TROUBLE! [SLYT]
"A small, secluded island off the coast of Belize suddenly finds itself terrorized by a deadly predator from the planet’s distant past, when deep-sea divers accidentally awaken an ancient evil. Jackson Slate and his team of underwater cave explorers unearth much more than long-lost Mayan treasure while plumbing the depths of a world famous blue hole. They disturb a creature that’s been hibernating for over 60,000 years—a rampaging behemoth of death and destruction not only at sea but also on land."

Hey everybody, let's bob rhythmically!

Hey everyone let's watch Aaron Long's Fester Fish, that irreverent cartoon scamp, as he watches his nephew, goes, uh, fishing, makes some friends, and takes his boozy girlfriend Blotty to meet his fokes for Christmas. (VIA CARTOON BREW - note, preroll ads before most cartoons) [more inside]

Helike, a possible Atlantis, found in 2001

On a winter night in 373 or 372 BC, a catastrophic earthquake and tsunami destroyed and submerged Helike (or Helice), the principal Greek city on the southwest shore of the Gulf of Corinth. Also destroyed was the temple of the Heliconian Poseidon, the god of earthquakes and the sea. The destruction of city was foretold by several events, including the appearance of some "immense columns of flame" (Google books), which have since been classified as a type of earthquake lights. The submerged ruins of the city disappeared slowly, as centuries later tourists could still see the walls beneath the water. Silt finally covered the ruins, turning the ocean into land again. The city, once a founding member of the Achaean League, was lost and remembered only in writings. A coin from Helike was discovered in 1861, but it wasn't until 2001 that not one but two ancient cities were discovered, including an entire Early Bronze Age town, dating from about 2400 BC.
