Google Takes a Dive

As we sometimes do on Slaw, I’m pointing out the Google doodle of the day. February 8 turns out to be Jules Verne’s birthday, and in its honour Google has done up a view from below, replete with a lovely lever that moves the ship forward, back, up and down.

Go and take the real thing for a test dive.

And because, good as it is, it’s only lumière without son, I’ve got an extra treat for you: a clip from an authentic (US) submarine dive horn recording. (You might want to turn your volume down.) If it happens to float your boat, there’s a lot more naval noise where that came from.
