The horrifying physiological and psychological consequences of being Aquaman
In easily the best thing I have read all week, Andrew Thaler dissects the marine biology and existential torture of being Aquaman. Through the lens of a marine mammal, how does he stay warm? How does he stay hydrated? How does he eat enough or avoid the bends? 
And most importantly, how does he silence his unceasing direct line of telepathic communication with a world of sea life that full of pain and death?

Aquaman can see the scars left by every trawl, can feel the life being sucked out of the ocean, knows the name of every fish, dolphin, and crab whose life has been taken by our nets and lines. His life is the constant, horrible drone of unspeakable, unstoppable death.
