    Video shows hideously ugly organism jiggling and pulsating as it's dragged from the water. A DISGUSTING blob creature that looks like a BRAIN has been discovered in a lake called The Lost Lagoon. The horrible beastie is a nasty brown colour and is said to feel squishy but firm to the touch, a bit like jelly. This horrible thing is made up of millions of tiny organisms ===================================================================== Celina Starnes, an ecologist from the Stanley Park Ecology Society, dragged the blob from its watery home This image gives a sense of the size of the horrible creature ====================================================================== Celina Starnes...

    By now, everyone has probably heard about El Nino and the effects of this weather pattern across the Western Hemisphere. Some are predicting this El Nino to be the biggest ever, naming it the "Godzilla El Nino." But step aside, Godzilla: Another monster weather anomaly has been wreaking havoc with the West Coast. Beware of "the Blob."
  • Cold 'Blob' in North Atlantic Ocean May Affect Weather in Europe, Eastern US

    A "blob" of abnormally cold water in the North Atlantic, located near Greenland, has the potential to put enough drag on the ocean current to impact weather conditions in the years to come. According to data compiled by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), sea surface water temperatures over much of the Atlantic were warmer than average spanning January to August 2015. Waters from the northwestern Caribbean to the central part of the ocean were not only very warm but were record warm. However, very chilly to record cold water has developed near Greenland, the NOAA data revealed. The...

    The one common element in recent weather has been oddness. The West Coast has been warm and parched; the East Coast has been cold and snowed under. Fish are swimming into new waters, and hungry seals are washing up on California beaches. A long-lived patch of warm water off the West Coast, about 1 to 4 degrees Celsius (2 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit) above normal, is part of whats wreaking much of this mayhem, according to two University of Washington papers to appear in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union. In the fall of 2013 and...
  • Giant Underground Blob of Magma Puzzles Scientists (Afar Rift in Ethiopia)

    Yahoo! News ^ | 9/17/13 | Becky Oskin - LiveScience.com
    The Afar Rift in Ethiopia is marked by enormous gashes that signal the breakup of the African continent and the beginnings of a new ocean basin, scientists think. The fractures appear eerily similar to seafloor spreading centers, the volcanic ridges that mark the boundaries between two pieces of oceanic crust. Along the ridges, lava bubbles up and new crust is created, slowly widening the ocean basin. But a look deep beneath the Afar Rift reveals the birth announcements may be premature. "It's not as close to fully formed seafloor spreading as we thought," said Kathy Whaler, a geophysicist at the...

    Michael Moore: Killing Is Who We Are As Americans By Patrick Burke December 17, 2012 (CNSNews.com) Liberal activist-filmmaker Michael Moore says school shootings like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. will continue because its who we are as Americans. I hate to say it, but killing is our way. We began America w/ genocide, then built it w/ slaves. The shootings will continue- it's who we are, Moore tweeted on Sunday. Moore sent out several tweets regarding the school shooting between Friday and Sunday, at one point claiming the shooter seemed to single out...

    PHOENIXVILLE, Pa., - Fans of the 1958 horror classic "The Blob" came to Phoenixville, Pa., Friday to celebrate the movie at the theater where its most famous scene was filmed. The climax of "BlobFest" at the Colonial Theatre was a re-enactment of that scene, in which the audience runs out screaming and trying to escape The Blob, KYW-TV, Philadelphia reported. The day for the festival was chosen, of course, because it was Friday the 13th. The low-budget movie about a pulsating alien life form that grows bigger and bigger by ingesting everything in its path featured Steven McQueen in his...

    A Toxic Goo rains on residents of Oakville, Washington May 8, 1997 It sounds like a bad science fiction movie, but for the little town in Washington there was nothing entertaining about the scourge that befell them in 1994. Six times it rained down from above, leaving dozens of local residents ill, and several pets and small animals dead. It all happened in Oakville, Washington, population 665. Here in Oakville, clouds fill the skies daily, bringing rain some 275 days a year. So, when it began pouring on the morning of August 7, 1994, no one was particularly concerned -...

    After watching this NIST video, I feel a lot better about the benefits of having all my personal business tied together through a government-administered national internet ID program. We'll all be able to finally get rid of the frustrating inconvenience of forgetting passwords, and replace it with a totalitarian dictatorship that knows our every move. Sounds like a reasonable deal to me. Besides, when the econazi internationalist police state finally starts getting their gulag program off the ground, I sure wouldn't want the authorities to not know where to find me. And I sure wouldn't worry about the security of...

    Army Technology ^ | 21 October 2009
    A new shapeshifting chemical robot being developed for Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the US Army has been unveiled by Pentagon researchers. ChemBot is a small mobile device that looks like a gelatinous blob, it can change shape to navigate through tight spaces and will be used by the army for intelligence gathering, and search and rescue missions. The chemical robot moves from place to place by way of a process called 'jamming' which causes the material to transition between semi-liquid and semi-solid states with only a slight change in volume. Jamming technology allows the scientists to make...

    Beware of the blobthis time, it's for real. As sea temperatures have risen in recent decades, enormous sheets of a mucus-like material have begun forming more often, oozing into new regions, and lasting longer, a new Mediterranean Sea study says (sea "mucus" blob pictures). And the blobs may be more than just unpleasant. Up to 124 miles (200 kilometers) long, the mucilages appear naturally, usually near Mediterranean coasts in summer. The season's warm weather makes seawater more stable, which facilitates the bonding of the organic matter that makes up the blobs (Mediterranean map). Now, due to warmer temperatures, the mucilages...

    A sample of the giant black mystery blob that Wainwright hunters discovered this month floating in the Chukchi Sea has been identified. Not bunker oil seeping from an aging, sunken ship. Not a sea monster. It looks to be a stringy batch of algae. "We got the results back from the lab today," said Ed Meggert, of the Department of Environmental Conservation in Fairbanks. "It was marine algae."

    A newly found primordial blob may represent the most massive object ever discovered in the early universe, researchers announced today. The gas cloud, spotted from 12.9 billion light-years away, could signal the earliest stages of galaxy formation back when the universe was just 800 million years old. "I have never heard about any [similar] objects that could be resolved at this distance," said Masami Ouchi, a researcher at the Carnegie Institution in Pasadena, Calif. "It's kind of record-breaking." A light-year is the distance light travels in a year, about 6 trillion miles (10 trillion kilometers). An object 12.9 billion light-years...

This mysterious, giant object existed at a time when the universe was only about 800 million years old. It stretches for 55 thousand light years, a record for that early point in time. Its length is comparable to the radius of the Milky Ways disk. Besides being a great candidate for a future Where in the Universe Challenge, what is it? In general, objects such as this one are dubbed extended...

    PORONG, Indonesia -- For nine months, a gaping hole in the ground has spit out a torrent of hot, black mud, swallowing thousands of houses outside Indonesia's second-largest city and attracting amazed geologists from around the world. Most say the flow is unstoppable, but Indonesian specialists refuse to listen, and they have recently begun carrying out a scheme straight from a Hollywood movie: dropping nearly 1,500 concrete balls into the mouth of the mud volcano. "We know lots of people think this is a crazy idea," said Satria Bijaksana, a professor and one of three geologists behind the $130 million...
