Deities aside, this water-walking invention is definitely worth passing along. Gizmag reports that a patent has been granted to a Massachusetts inventor for an "Upright Human Floatation Apparatus And Propulsion Mechanism," which basically looks like a pair of pontoon-shaped shoes. A grainy video demonstration seems appropriately eerie for this weird creation. And if you look closely, the image may even bear a resemblance to a certain well-known Scottish seagoing creature.
