Ocean Plug Holes

Thursday, 5th January 2006 by

Just off the east coast off Spain lies this collection of holes in the Mediterranean. They're used to drain the Atlantic, which allows for regular cleaning of the sea-bed. Honestly.

OK, so I have absolutely no idea what they are. Do you?

Update: Well, not so much of an update, more of a summary. Our ever witty readers reckon this might be: Aliens, a conspiracy, genetically modified barnacles, fishnet stockings, suckers on the arm of a giant squid, a ketchup bottle farm, tuna cages, a huge lego brick, or perhaps even a giant-sized game of Battleships! And yet somehow we remain unconvinced that any of these is the solution...
