    Not a river IMO. Just a quirk of the Black Sea.

    I always classified rivers as emptying into a larger body of water. If this "river" is underwater, it sounds more like a trench.

    Does it lead to Austrailia and are there talking turtles named crush that get in the river?

    A deep water flow is not a river in my book.

    It sounds like a "current", not a river. This is a really cool discovery though.

    Pluto isnt a planet anymore but water flowing at the bottom of a sea is a river. I feel bad for the young kids that have to keep all this **** straight.

    Especially for the kids in New Mexico and Illinois, where their lawmakers feel like there are still 9 planets......

    Pluto IS a planet - a minor one. Just because the I-Cubs are an AAA team doesn't mean Des Moines doesn't have a baseball team...

    I was wondering how you would lose such a large river in the first place.

    This isn't a river, and Pluto is a planet. Anything that happend after I left 5th grade is not going to change my view. :smile:
