Mystery blob devouring Alaska coastline

Haha, OMG.

“It’s thick and dark and ‘gooey’ and is drifting for miles in the cold Arctic waters.”

“‘It’s certainly biological…It’s definitely not an oil product of any kind….It’s pitch black when it hits ice and it kind of discolors the ice and hangs off of it.'”

I have to say, I’m a little disappointed that of all the science fiction references made in the comments, there’s not a single mention of Dark Water. Come on, people. 😉

    That’s fantastic! I can’t believe how closely it resembles Dark Water, and “No one in the area can recall seeing anything like it before.” I’ve been desperately trying to find more news about this as the article was published a month ago, but I can’t find anything. Surely people have figured out what it is by now?

    Yesterday, something made me recall my fond childhood memories of this show and I ended up watching all 21 episodes back to back. I also stumbled on your fan site in the process. Great find!

    Just in case you’re curious, I’m 23 and from Bulgaria. I only say that to assert just how far and wide Dark Water has spread! =)

    Moments later: http://www.adn.com/news/alaska/story/867160.html. It’s just run of the mill algae… =/

  • Haha, I figured as much. 🙂 The story’s a month old. I just was amused by it, really.

    Thank you for the comment! It’s always cool to meet other fans, especially around the world. 🙂

    Haha too awesome! 😀

  • I still cling to the hope that it is what we think it is. Hehehehe~
    The scientists are just concerned for our well-beings so they’re passing this terrible new nuisance off as simple algae. I’m suspicious of you, scientists…

  • Real dark water!..omg. I must get to Alaska so that I may put this liquid death on ebay!
    -when are we going to see a Pirates of Dark Water movie!I’ve been waiting decades.
