When you need to transport eight tons of cocaine across international waters, you can’t exactly just pay an extra baggage fee. So Colombian drug lords did the sensible – and trendy – thing: they spent 4000 million pesos (approx $2.2 million) to build their own drug-trafficktacular submersible.
Colombian authorities seized the vessel before it could make its way to Mexico. And then posed for lots, and lots, and lots of pictures, because wouldn’t you? [MSNBC via BoingBoing; Photo credit: REUTERS/Jaime Saldarriaga]
