This week in the news a mysterious biological goop was found floating in the ocean.
A gigantic smear of gooey, black biological material is making its way through the Chukchi Sea between Wainwright and Barrow in Northern Alaska. Eyewitnesses say it's definitely a living entity, though unlike anything they've seen before.

Imagine the scene: an Alaskan hunter crouches, aims, and fires. A deer falls on the tundra. The hunter rushes over, but a dark, dripping arm reaches up out of the water, grabs the dead deer, and pulls it into the depths!
This scenario isn’t true YET, but it’s not too far in the future. This is true.
Hunters HAVE discovered a weird Alaskan blob of goo near the Chukchi Sea, in northern Alaska. “Goo” is the layman’s term for an unknown substance – probably biological – that is at least a few miles square, floating in the ocean.
The U.S. Coast Guard and a team of research scientists have airlifted samples of the thick, dark “Alaskan blob” to labs all over the country. Preliminary results point to a biological origin, but it’s not algae, and it’s not oil.
The scanty “Alaska goo” news reports say the substance is sticky, smells rotten, and even has “hairy strands” on it. It has trapped jellyfish and sea birds in its gluey strands (while preparing for human-sized prey?) and confused the heck out of scientists in Alaska. Blob movies mock the idea of a super-sized Alaska goo creature, but I’m a little scared.
When i saw the pictures it bought back a memory of seeing a Stephen King film called "Creepshow 2" (when I was a teenager ) which depicted in one story , a group of teenagers aboard a raft in a lake, and unbeknownst to them , floating nearby was a black oily, slick biological goop which ate them. This film also depicted the goop eating a flock of birds leaving bones and feathers behind.
This News Link On the mysterious goo states:
"Apparently he saw jellyfish tangled in the goo, and somebody else retrieved bones and feathers from a dead goose they found in the goo as well."
Take a look at the scene from Creepshow 2 - Some may find the last few mins graphic so fast forward. - Note how much it resembles the goo found this week
Weird huh? .......I won't be touching the goo......just in case ;)
