There was an article on Yahoo about Megladons, and someone in the comments mentioned that Jacques Cousteau once took a video/saw something weird that looked like it was walking upright and straight like a human, but it was on the ocean floor. Does anyone know anything about this?

I do seem to recall a story of him seeing "something odd" (odder then the usual stuff found under the sea) but not something like a Deep One or someone with the Innesmouth look.
So I think you've been spun a furphy based on a misremembered (intentionally or otherwise) story.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I do specifically remember that episode. I was a huge fan. Now, nothing like a human. It was orange, and had 4 " legs " that looked like stumps. It was " walking " along like a stiff legged cow. It did not have a head, or neck...May have been some type of starfish. It has been a long time, but I do remember that.

Here's an older thread with mention of Cousteau diving in the Bermuda Triangle, Lake Tahoe,

When I was young I believed in nothing paranormal. Since then I have lived in a *haunted* house, seen 3 UFOS(!), and a Sasquatch. Now I believe that anything is probably possible:(

Weird, I went the opposite direction.

What if we live on exact opposite sides of the globe and are the balances to each other in the universe.

DESTINAY!

Skeptical, Hopefully one day you will also experience the paranormal. I now realize that there is a world that exists along side ours that we rarely encounter, yet it is truly there:(

This wasn't Jacque Cousteau, but I do remember reading a book years ago (sorry I don't remember the author or title) about the deep-sea sub and looking for the Titanic. I remember they mentioned in passing seeing creatures that were "straight out of a sci-fi novel". They didn't go into detail, though, maybe because they thought they wouldn't be believed, but it did arouse my curiosity.

Maybe she's telling the truth? Just because we personally haven't seen it, doesn't necessarily mean it isn't real. Open up your mind.

Maybe her mind is playing tricks with her.   Just because she thinks it does not make it true.   Don't be gullible.  
It goes both ways.   Believing everything people say is not the same as having an open mind.

All I recall of the incident is he was alone on a dive. When he returned he said he saw something incredible, but the world was not ready for it. I am unsure if this story is accurate, though. As to waether he would have been eblieved if he revealed it: this is Jacques Coustou, at the time the most famous an influential oceanic naturalist, not to mention underwater pohtographer.

Rule #1 for Divers :

Never dive alone, all ways have a buddy.



Doubt he was alone.

Gee. What a coincidence.
