ELI5: How do internet cables that go under the ocean simultaneously handle millions or even billions of data transfers?
I understand the physics behind how the cables themselves work in transmitting light. What I don't quite understand is how it's possible to convert millions of messages, emails, etc every second and transmit them back and forth using only a few of those transoceanic cables. Basically, how do they funnel down all that data into several cables?

How much whale cum is in the oceans?
This might not be a question you have but I’ll answer it whether you want me to or not
There is an estimated 1.35 billion cubic kilometers of water in the oceans. The average whale ejaculates 1500 liters of cum each load. The average whale breeds once every two years and lives between 40-100 years. Currently there are around 1.3 million whales. A whale on average breeds 13- 43 times in their life. Only 10% of the whales cum makes it into the partner so each time around 1350 liters gets into the ocean. With 1.3 million whales breeding on average 28 times and 1350 liters getting into the ocean that’s 50 billion liters of cum! 0,0038% of the ocean is whale cum, per cubic mete(1000 liters) there is 3 liters of cum. Enjoy your next trip to the beach :)
Edit: some people saying they would swallow it
Average age in this sub is 16-17, average weight of a 16 year old is 53,5 kg, density of cum is around the same of water so 1500 liters is 1,5 tons. That’s 30 times your weight, the average h

There is NOT that much whale cum in the ocean.
You think a whale ejaculates 1500 fucking liters of cum every load? Are you insane? People don’t realize how large of a fucking volume that is.
The largest testicles among whales belong to the Right Whale, which can produce UP TO 5 gallons of cum per mating session. That’s up to 15 liters per load. Not fucking 1500, jesus
Your guys’ whale cum approximations are WAY OFF

Stay away from the ocean, it's not safe anymore.
In 1989, we detected a faint call coming from the depths of the ocean. A strange cry from a massive creature, traveling alone in the vast blue waters below. At first, it sounded like an oddity, a malfunctioning hydrophone, but then we heard it again in 1990, and 1991.
With only five percent of the ocean explored, it baffled us. To any untrained ear, it sounded like a whale, but its pitch was too high. Measuring at a frequency of 52 hertz, it meant that the song couldn't be understood by any known species of whale. Thus, it was destined to exist on its own, and is has been dubbed the loneliest creature in the world.
We called him: Blue 52.
Every year, we'd hear the lonesome whale. Measured through hydrophones spread across the west coast of America and Canada. Still, it wouldn't be until 2019, before we finally lay eyes upon it.
Our crew was tasked with finding him, tag him with a tracker, and observe for others like him. Onboard the RV Song of Solitude, we traversed th
