ok - a few points - in no particular order :

Q1 - did costeau ever dive lake tahoe in the 70s ?

A1 - as i refuse to play the ` proove he didnt ` game - its incumbant on those who wish to claim he did , to supply evidence

Q2 - are there " perfectly preserved bodies " in the depths ?

A2 - no liquid fresh water - will not act as a preservative at any temp , the evidence of this is trench foot , further bacterial activity is only retarded @ temperatures > 0 degree celcius , not inhibited , lastly fish and crustateans would still eat flesh

Q3 - has the bottom of lake tahoe ever been explored ?

A3 - TBH , i dont know - but can find no literature to sugesst it has - again its incumbant on the person wishing to make claims that it has to supply evidence , sure the littorial fringes have been dived extensivly - but to go past 150m requires exponentially rising amounts of equiment , or ROVs / submersible craft

MODS

Can we get a ruling if that profanity violates ATSs T & C?

If it doesn't then we desperately need to rewrite them

According to this,Cousteau never explored Tahoe:


But Cousteau never explored the lake. Some say his grandson, Philippe Cousteau Jr., visited there, but only for a 2002 speaking engagement. And authorities say they have used sonar and mini-subs to map the lake's bottom and never found such a graveyard. Nobody knows the name or affiliation of the supposed "longtime Tahoe fire chief."

Thats a good point. A friend of mine lived in Tahoe for a while and told me thay had a terrible problem with invasive non-native crayfish. Crayfish would have devoured any corpses in the lake a long time ago.

I have tapes in mp3 format where he went down into the Bermuda Triangle and seen creatures behind bars of water. His skin color changed from that of a raisin to that of a white ghost and told a preacher, "I'm never going down there again."

I was a curious teenager living in that area at the time and he was my hero,next to John Wayne of course. I do believe it was explored by mini sub and because of the frigid waters the bottom was covered in trash and slime.
You got to remember that this was at a time when the anti-pollution movement was a really big thing and J. was a big spokeman for this cause.
ANSWER - 'B' Bob, trash and slime.

I have heard rumors from the locals that say there are hundreds of perfectly preserved bodies of workers from china that have been down there for over a hundred years. I don't know if this is true, but maybe someone here has heard the same thing? The story is that this was how they got rid of the bodies of people who died, did not work hard enough, or were unneeded after jobs were complete. I don't know, but This is what the locals said he found when he went down there. I heard this story about eight years ago, when on a short visit, otherwise I have never heard of his expedition.



Cheaper to throw the Chinese workers into the Lake instead of paying them...spending the time burying them.

I'm surprised no Chinese have dived into Lake Tahoe to find out if it's true.

here's a link to a snopes forum on the subject.
message.snopes.com...

I'd say it's just an urban legend.
Or there's an entrance to some underwater cave system.
i don't know.

I go on vacation all the time at lake tahoe. Everyone knows the story of jaques Costeau. I think its BS, he would be a millionare to exploite his findings

There is also a story, "STORY", of the mofia dumping bodys in the lake on the south side. And because its so deep and cold, the bodys never decompose.

This I would think to be highly doubtful. Poor Jacques would have spend days in a decompression chamber.

Ol' JC wouldn't be afraid of what's in the picture link, they're as common as muck. They are flying squidactyls, very tasty they are too!

Lake Superor is deep and cold too. When they dived on the Edmund Fitzgerald they sighted bodies on the lakebed but wouldn't release the film only a picture from the distance.

I heard a story about Mr Coustou. But the one I heard is that they saw and filmed flying dinosaurs.
