A Giant Blob is Threatening Alaska!





"Something big and strange is floating through the Chukchi Sea." (I stole that line 'cause it was just too awesome to pass up.)

Seems a thick, gooey blob that's 15 MILES LONG is currently floating off the coast of Alaska. No one has been able to figure out what the blob is, but scientists have made one startling discovery . . . IT'S ALIVE. Oh yeah, and it smells terrible.

For more information and a really nasty photo, be sure to check out this article.

ALIVE?! How is that even possible? And why does it have to be Alaska? I luffle Alaska...

Anyways, this is sinisterly like something in a very disturbing and very good book I read ... The Tomorrow Code, by Brian Falkner.

That's brilliant!
I mean, just really awesome!
When you get the close up photo, you can tell that it's algae, but from afar, It's just a 12 mile long movie cliché!

A blob that's alive? Maybe something similar to Maximum Ride 5?

They said it wasn't oil, but I wonder if it could be used for a fuel source. Hmmm . . .

Beware of the blob it
leaps and creeps

a blotch
a splotch

There is a HUGE mistake in the follow up article, http://www.adn.com/189/story/867160.html

ALGAE IS NOT A PLANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's a protazoan, in the same kingdom as amoebas and all single-celled organisms that are Not Bacteria or Archaebacteria.

Algae blooms are very poisonous. If you eat fish, shellfish, or pretty much anything from the water where the algae bloom is, you will probably die. But the blooms I've read about are red, brown, yellow, ect...especially red, which in some ancient civilization (I forget which) was called "the sea of blood". Guess why...

it does kinda sound like those things from maximum ride 5, only instead of freaky yet misunderstood mutant whales, this is a giant blob of something. like the whales in max 5, this thing could be the nasty mixture of pollution and toxic waste and all the other ineluctable problems that are destroying our ozone layer. this blob could be mother nature's way of getting revenge on the human race!





...or it's just algae.
