I liked all the suggestions but surely the scariest of all is a foreign species landing in the artic on an asteroid or something!!!! I think the most logical is some sort of iceberg meltage waste, so very sad. Maybe a mammoth was frozen in an iceberg and the iceberg melted and the remainder was hairy goo (look at the bucket), what du think? Like that one found a few years ago, altho that was an unmelted mummified mammoth.
Yeah, so far it just looks an algal bloom . It would be interesting if climate change was responsible. You get them a lot in warmer waters were fresh water mixes with the sea, especially when the run-off has a lot fertilizers and things in it.
With the unusually large amount of extra fresh water there, the extra heat and all sorts of nutrients being released into the sea from the ice, it wouldn't be surprising if it was some sort of colder version.
The most possible theory is that this from a iceberg that after all this time would start to melt. My only question is, if this is true then i hope that this does not contain a bacteria or other type of time fornern organisms. What could be a bacteria that would be harmless in its formal time could be a new ocean contained plague in our time.
One other concern is that just with a dirty snow, most of the time the surface is cleaner then the bottom, as time goes will this iceberg sludge in large amounts effect the ocean? Could this be the new waste to be released into the sea via Global warming? Will it effect the world badly?
Has no one here read their H.P. Lovecraft? it's a shoggoth. we're doomed. see "at the mountains of madness" and if you get a if you get a miniute to read, check out the H.P. Lovecraft archive. google it. very creepy. lovecraft predicted cryogenics (cool air) other dimensions (numerous short stories, including dreams at the witch house, the randolph carter stories, the haunter of the dark, etc) alien life and advanced civilizations, (the colour out of space, the shadow out of time, etc) i highly reccomend you read his stuff. it makes you feel this ------> .
Ever see Creepshow 2? One segment in there called The Raft I belive it was. Nasty stuff eating teens out for a good time on the lake. I do like the idea of it coming out of melting ice. Nature having its revenge on is for global warming. To much, to mich.
