Chinese flag found at underwater wreckage of Japanese war ship

The depths of the ocean are very mysterious, what with all the weird fish and sea creatures, shipwrecks and maybe even sunken treasure down there. It’s no wonder scuba diving is such a popular activity, since you never know just what you’ll come across.

Last weekend, some Japanese divers off the coast of Palau thought they knew what they were going to see when they dove to the underwater grave of a Japanese warship. However, they were surprised to discover something new and peculiar at the site: a Chinese flag. Hm, that wasn’t there last time…

New twist on an old fetish: Eight photos of girls in knee-high socks… underwater!

Aw yeah, knee-high socks. Does that get you wet?

Well, these are probably the wettest set of knee-high socks you’ll ever see. Some genius has combined two favourite fetishes in one… “knee-high socks” plus “women underwater”, making for some amazing shots that are very enjoyable even if you’re not particularly into either one. I wonder how this stroke of genius came about. Did someone accidentally fall into a pool while wearing knee socks and climb out shrieking “Eureka!!” Did they start the underwater shoot and then realize the models had terrible shaving rash which needed to be concealed somehow? Or did it come about through some other process of evolution? Wetsuit, wetsuit socks, wet socks… wet knee-high socks? Let’s not even mention how sexy it is to see someone sucking on a scuba diving mouthpiece.

“Underwater knee-high girls”, a collection of photos of women wearing socks underwater, is due to be published by Pot Shuppan on 29 August this year. The underwater photography was captured by Mika Ninagawa, who directed the manga-based movie Helter Skelter (2012), and film-maker, Manabu Koga.
