The Blaze ^ | May 9, 2012 | Liz Klimas

Posted on 05/09/2012 1:02:12 PM PDT by Twotone

You may think what you see at 20 seconds into the video below is just a little jelly fish. But wait — you‘re about to be taken on a ride where you’ll see it grow, morph, undulate and still won’t know quite what this confounding, “easily the most insane animal footage ever caught on an undersea camera” is.

I don’t know what it is.
But I’m betting the, “Weird Hair Dude,” will pop into this thread and say, “Aliens.”

I was reading on another site that there are two possibilities. One is it is some species of jelly fish that went too deep and the pressure messed it up. Second is that it might be innards from a harvested whale or shark.
None the less, completely bizarre and hypnotic at the same time.

Up close, it looks like a fishing net design. Probably has critters (jellyfish, for one) trapped in it. Looks like it might have an eel, too.

If it is in the Gulf of Mexico maybe it is a Jellyfish that is suffering from the "...2 million gallons of toxic dispersants were sprayed into the Gulf, which may be making waters more toxic for species.

Wow. I’m not even sure if that can rightfully be classified as a jellyfish. That is easily the strangest creature I’ve ever seen on land or sea.

The lifeforms that scientists are discovering under the oceans continue to amaze.

FReepers humblegunner, Larry Lucido, myself and quite a few others have consistently argued against blogs being pimped on FR.

While some blogs (as the exception that proves the rule) do provide some quality commentary and report on “under reported” stories purposefully omitted by the MSM the majority are merely click for cash schemes that get financial rewards for invading the privacy of those who visit their sites.

Your analysis of the tracking software on the Blaze is a perfect example. I clicked on that site and every alarm on my system went off.

You can find the same video on YouTube.com -

Just for clarity, I am ~not~ suggesting that FReeper Twotone is “pimping.” I’m sure he just found an interesting story and posted it.

Just for future reference, “The Blaze” is not (to the best of my knowledge) on the “excerpt only” list.
