Houseboats have long been a common sight for people across the globe. Since ancient and mediaeval times, people have been sailing over the turbulent seas in quest of riches, gold, and new countries. However, things have changed with the introduction and development of floating houses as a means of sea transport, it is now much simpler to sail over the treacherous seas. Recently, one such video of a floating house became viral on the internet. It depicts a few sailors on a mid-size sea vessel in the middle of the ocean photographing a home that is floating just a small distance away.
The video which was shared on X by Wow Terrifying depicts a very strange and implausible scenario that defies logic as to how a house could land in the ocean and be spotted floating right in the middle of the ocean.

Needless to say, the video was quick to garner multiple reactions from X users. This clip has so far gathered over 279.6K views. In the comments, some people were amused to see the house floating in the middle of the ocean, while others filled it with rib-tickling jokes and claimed that the ship belonged to SpongeBob or Devi Jones.
An X user wrote, “That belongs to SpongeBob and the gang now.”

Another X user chimed in and expressed, “Hope they have flood insurance.”
Expressing concern for the one living in the houseboat, an account remarked, “I hope they brought some dehumidifiers.”

“He’s gonna be late for work,” another individual jokingly remarked.
“When it sinks it will become a home for thousands of life forms. Like the Titanic. Like all ships. which is kinda fitting,” another user commented.

Earlier, a housing development company based in Japan named Ichijo Komuten’s innovations became the talk of the town as they claimed to have solved the problem of flood-prone countries. The company invented a flood floating house that starts floating as soon as the level of water increases. The house is unique in structure because it is waterproof, the company said.
In an interview with the TBS TV station, the company explained that the house looked like a normal house. But when the water started filling up around it, the house slowly started leaving the ground and floating upward.
Nonetheless, the internet has ample proof of such absurd things happening many times before, and one can expect them to happen in the future as well.
