Huge Underground Ocean Found Beneath Asia

This is strange; if I lived in Asia, I’m not sure how I would feel to discover that I was on top of such an amount of water.  Personally, I prefer being on top of lots of dirt, and then magma.  Yes, always with the magma…the molten hot magma.

A giant blob of water the size of the Arctic Ocean has been discovered hundreds of miles beneath eastern Asia, scientists report.Researchers found the underground “ocean” while scanning seismic waves as they passed through Earth’s interior.
