Cable of Mystery

As we were walking along the beach at Ellwood, we came across this: cable sticking right out of the beach. This was right along the waterline at low tide, so at high tide it would be submerged. This cable went WAY down deep into the sand, no idea how far or where it was going but it appeared to be heading directly out to sea. It appeared to be coaxial, like you'd use for cable TV. We actually encountered this twice along the walk.

I wonder if you pulled up the cable there'd be a TV on the other end? Maybe you'd drag a Japanese guy across the ocean who'd smack you on the hand and say "Stop doing that!"

Sorry I'm the recipient of my wife's flu and I think i'm getting a bit loopy.

I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you!

Maybe the giant squid haven't been paying their cable TV bill.

I DID give it a firm tug, and it went way down and far out. "How far?" is a good question, as well as "to where?"

Remember when the trans-pacific phone cable washed up on Gilligan's Island?
